For most companies, adding a subdomain like helpcenter.domain.com suffices. But for others, it might just be a starting point. A small business might prefer annual billing (with support for multiple users) while an enterprise could accommodate paying per user per month (for 10s of users). So how do you choose a knowledge base solution that’s right for you? Here’s how.
