Communities are a great way to share information and collaborate with people outside your company who are key to your business processes, such as customers, partners, or employees.
To enable Communities for your org, you provide a community domain name. The community domain collects all your communities under one URL. Typically, your community domain is your company name.When you create the domain name in your production org, choose this domain name carefully—you can’t change it afterward.
