A microsite is different than a website because it’s a digital asset that lives just outside of a companies homepage or Brand URL. They typically don’t last as long as a website and are focused on a specific goal or a specific audience. If you are creating a microsite you will still need a domain name as well as a web hosting company to host your site. Finally, when you use a microsite there are a lot less risks and more experimenting that you can do.
