The only time you should consider building and maintaining a different website for another brand is if these conditions apply:
- the secondary brand is significantly different than your other brands
- the other brand is targeted to different markets
- the purpose / need met for the secondary brand is substantially different
In most cases a competent Content Management System (CMS) can split the site into two branding themes that have a different look and feel for each brand. The benefits are in maintenance.
If you do want to separate the brands further, it is suggested to use sub-domains for the site. Using this method the foundation remains the same and the sub-domain differentiates brands.
