Setting up your homesite as your root site

Brass Contributor

We've been contemplating if we should set up our new landing site built as communication site as our root site.  Or if we should continue to stick with the companyname/sites/Intranet.  We were thinking of setting up the new landing site as root site then as homesite.  Does anyone know if there's a best practice for this?  If you set up your homesite as your root site, did you have any issues?  Or did you stick with the /sites/name of site URL as your homesite?

Hello @pdfrig


both are possible. Whenever it's possible we use the root site as home site, it's more intuitiv for users when they use SharePoint.
