    How is a site related to community in Salesforce?



    Hello Anurag,

    Every community comes with a linked Site.com site, which we can use to create pages in the community.We’ll be using Site.com to build a compelling home page for our community. Communities users can use Site.com to build custom, branded pages for a community.Each community has one associated Lightning Platform site where you can make advanced customizations to your community.

    For example, with Salesforce Sites you can:

    Add public pages to your community that don’t require login.
    Use branded self-registration and login pages to enable users to register for or log in to your community.
    Customize the provided error pages to reflect your community’s branding. You can customize the “Authorization Required (401)” and “Page Not Found (404)” pages.
    Leverage Visualforce pages to create private pages that only community members can access.

    Sites is an intuitive, convenient tool for customizing your community. Community Builder lets you create a community based on a pre-configured template, and then apply to brand, edit pages, update your template, and publish changes all from one user-friendly interface.

    You can use  Community site when you want to achieve:

    • Set a home page and set up multilingual support for your community in Site.com Studio, a Web content management system that provides extra configuration options. Site.com Studio is easily accessible from Community Management.
    • Create data-driven pages, such as product catalogs or other listings, using your organization’s data.




    Community in Salesforce is sub-domain sites built with Community Builder (Lightning), standard Salesforce UI (Tabs), or custom Visualforce.

    Communities users with the “Create and Set Up Communities” permission are assigned the role of site administrator in a community’s Site.com site. To let Communities users without the permission edit the site, you must purchase and assign either a Site.com Publisher or a Site.com Contributor feature license, and assign a user role at the site level.

    Hope this will help.

    A web community is a web site (or group of web sites) where specific content or links are only available to its members. A web community may take the form of a social network service, an Internet forum, a group of blogs, or another kind of social software web application.

    An online community is a group of people with common interests who use theInternet (web sites, email, instant messaging, etc) to communicate, work together and pursue their interests over time.

    Now come to salesforce –

    Online Community Software from Salesforce Community Cloud. Salesforce Community Cloud is powered by advanced online community software that allows businesses of all sizes to connect to their partners, customers, employees, and business processes like never before.

    Hope this helps.
