I did a fair amount of research before posting this question to ensure I am not asking a repeated question. I am newbie to Magento, and I would like to get your advice on the below workflow:
I have a Magento 1.9 Installed on www.samplestore.com (it's a small store), and right now, I am thinking to open samplestore.com for another country market. (let's say France)
I understand Magento supports multiple stores, However, I want to use this as an opportunity to discover Magento 2.0, instead of sticking with 1.9.
Thus, we are thinking to install, Magento 2.0 on a subdomain. (Example: samplestore.com/FR/) and keep Magento 1.9 on the main store.
I know by doing this, all the customers and orders, and sales will be isolated from the main store, however, my questions are:
Does the above scenario makes any sense to implement?
How can I redirect all the terrific from France to /FR/ subdomain automatically? (Is it something that has to be handled at the server level and not Magento Level?)
