will penalty or something bad as a result?

note: I will be taking orders on both sites and trying different backend stuff on each. both will have same branding. overtime i will get rid of 2nd.site.com

ok thanks...one more thing. do you know if this applies exactly the same to magento sites or are you talking about any website in general.

NP hope it works for you and it should apply to any site you can put on it's own subdomain. I'm really not very familiar with magneto, but the only thing I can think of you might have to do, depending on exactly how magneto works wrt linking is perform a string-replace to get the subdomain out of the links/canonical.

So, for code-set2.example.com:
echo str_replace('code-set2.example.com','www.example.com',file_get_contents('http://code-set2.example.com'.$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']));

Would change a link like this:


Obviously for code-set1.example.com you just change code-set2.example.com to code-set1.example.com in the replace.
