Store owners can benefit from running multiple Shopify stores under one domain name. One of the biggest benefits is that it allows you to consolidate your link equity and search engine rankings into a single domain, improving your site's SEO. This is especially helpful if you have multiple stores with different product lines because it allows you to focus your SEO efforts on a single domain rather than spreading them across multiple domains.
Can You Have More Than One Shopify Store?
Multiple Shopify stores can be created, but each store must be associated with a unique domain name and Shopify account. Additional stores can be used for marketing purposes, such as creating a separate store to target a different audience or sell different products. Each store can be customized with its own design, products, and settings.

Must All Your Shopify Stores Share the Same Domain?
Shopify allows all stores to be under the same domain in order to create a unified shopping experience for customers. However, each store will act as its own entity.
To set up multiple Shopify stores under the same domain name, you'll need to use subdomains. To do this, follow these steps:
- From the Shopify admin, head to Settings and click Domains.
- From here, click Manage for the domain you wish to add subdomains to.
- In the Subdomains section, select Add subdomain.
- Here, enter the prefix you wish to use. For example, add a two-letter code like .ca for Canada. For other subdomain variations, enter the text you'd like to use. For example, ".finances" or ".sports."
- To finish, click Add subdomain.
