Subdomain for the blog and news

I have checked all possible implementation. It seem an issue that WP or any other CMS system uses htaccess file or index.php inside root directory. Can be avoided this way due to eCommerce or WP conflict.

When I see there are soem top website using:
[news.mydomain.de...]
[blog.mydomain.de...]
[shop.mydomain.de...]

In this way all functionality can be implemented and avoiding any conflict integration.

Is there any feedback?

The problem is that multiple applications depend on index.php (or index.hmtl or whatever) to work properly. So if you don't have WP running your home page, it will generally be fairly unhappy.

An easy way to make everything work without conflict is, in fact, using subdomains as you say. Subdirectories would accomplish the same thing

example.com/news
example.com/blog
example.com/shop

in some cases it would be possible to rename the index.php file(s) and modify/combine the .htaccess files, but i wouldn't recommend it and it's not a solution for beginners.

the advantage of using subdomains is that they can be easily be hosted on separate servers.

phranque - I've tried that - say using index.html for your home page and index.php to run WP without it serving as the home page. It's just an unbelievable hassle to maintain.
