Domains that are added to the same domain group ‘behave’ in the same way and also share the same scripts.
They will share the same cbid (‘CookiebotIdentifier, which is the serial number that is included in the script. Each domain group has a unique cbid), use the same cookie consent banner template, the same logo, the same styling of the banner etc.
Also, it is possible to use ‘Bulk Consent’ for all the domains and subdomains within one domain group to ensure that a website visitor is asked for a joint consent covering all the domains/subdomains only the first time he visits one of those domains. For more information about domain groups, see point 1 in our guide on how to work with domain groups for your different customers.
So you have two options:
- You can add both the two domains to the same domain group. That way they will share the same script and behave in the same way. Under the tab ‘content’ you can choose to add the banner in 2 languages – German and English. That way, German users (based on IP address) would see the banner text in German and everyone else would see it in English.
- You can add the German domain to one domain group and the English domain to another domain group. This has no impact on the pricing since you pay per domain and per subdomain - and not related to the number of domain groups. Then, each domain will be able to behave in a different way – for example have its own logo on the cookie consent banner, have different wording in the banner, use 2 different types of cookie consent banner template or have different colors etc.
