You require domains for different purposes in NetSuite. When you are setting up an online store where customers can browse for products and buy them, the following domain types are available in NetSuite:

  • Web Store Only – also known as the shopping domain, this is the main website domain where users can browse for products. On its own, a web store domain acts as a catalog of products. Customers can browse for products but they cannot buy them. For customers to be able to buy products, the web store domain must be linked with a Checkout domain.

  • Checkout Only – this is the type of domain where users of your web store buy products. The checkout domain is always a secure domain as it captures customer payment details. For details on secure domains, see Secure Domains.

  • Single Domain for Web Store and Checkout - this domain type combines the function of both Web Store and Checkout domains. It is a single, secure domain where customers can browse for products, add them to a shopping basket, and checkout securely.

Depending on your requirements, you can set up one or more of these domain types for your online store. For details on the possible domain type combinations, see Domain Options for Web Stores.

You can also set up the following domains to provide additional features on your website:

  • Email Campaign – the domain you use to replace references to netsuite.com in your email and marketing templates. It is required if you send more than 10,000 emails per month with campaigns or email merge operations. See Website Domains and Email Hosting for more information.

  • Hosted Web Page – the domain that points to a page in your NetSuite File Cabinet.

  • Promotional URL – the domain to which a promotional URL redirects. This can be the same as your shopping domain or it can be a separate domain. For more details, see the help topic Promotional URLs.

  • Redirect URL – the domain from which URLs are redirected either to a URL on a different domain or a page on a different site. For more details, see SEO and Redirects.
