Select property type In google search Console

After 1 year i am using new Google Search Console, so I bit confused with it while adding New Domain.
While adding new domain I see two option Domain & URL Prefix .

so which should i choose while adding this type domain? Also, note I have a plan to create this domain subdomain so which should I choose?

Any Search Console Expert put your thoughts here?

One domain can be used for variety of propose under various subdomain, root domain or subfolder.

I would recommend using both, going with URL prefix and also domain level.

I am using new Domain first option. Makes life easier. Don’t have to add separate 4 properties.

Use the second option. It is easier to verify if you are using plugins like Yoast SEO, Rank Brain, etc.

If you use domain level option, you do not get access to all tools ( especially legacy tools like URL remover ).

So you should use second one

Old search console no longer exist. In new, you can find related tools.



Yeah I know. But all these tools from old console are not accessible if you have a domain property added

When I click legacy menu, Domain property returns that error. It works for URL prefix by redirecting to the old search console interface.

Yes you are right. It does give me the same error. I am using domain level on my new domain so never used those tools.
