Working on real estate companies. Many of these are individual companies (franchise takers) working under same brand. I.e. www.realestate.com as parent /umbrella and then www.realestate.com/store1 and www.realestate.com/store2 as child companies.

But - when entering the “/StoreX” part to company domain name, I get an error.

How can I create these?

The issue you are having is that /store1 and /store2 are not domains. They are simply folders under realestate.com. If you want them to be separate domains, you would either have to:

 

1. Make a TLD for them such as realestatestore1.com or realestatestore2.com

2. Make a Subdomain of your current TLD for those sites: ie: store1.realestate.com & store2.realestate.com

 

Regardless of which method you choose, you should be able to point the domain or subdomain to the folder so you shouldn't have to move anything around. However, if you are using Hubspot CMS, you may have to check with their support as typically I work with hosts outside of Hubspot.
