A Complete Guideline of Adding Stores In Magento 2

In Magento 2 installation, many stores that share the same Admin can be included in a single installation. Stores that are on the same website share the same domain, IP address, security certificate and a single checkout process.

Remember that the stores also share the same Magento code and admin backend. Store administrators can allow the store to share the same catalog or have a separate catalog. To have a different main menu for each store, each store can have a separate root category. Stores can have different branding, presentation, and content. You have to spend some time preparing a plan for your store hierarchy with future growth in mind because your plan will be used throughout the configuration.
