Ok, let's say that a customer already has a CMS managed web site but now wants to sell goods online using an E-commerce platform (Magento in this case).
My question is, does it make any difference between choosing to have just one site running both CMS and E-commerce (
www.mycompany.com), or to have one site for the CMS (
www.mycompany.com) and another (
www.mycompany-shop.com) for E-commerce?
I'd like to know the pros and cons of these approaches, so that I can advise the customer for the best.
I forgot to say that I'd prefer to have 2 separate web sites. This way I wouldn't have to learn how to integrate them together (one in Python, the other in PHP).
