To comply with the latest browser and security standards, you must deploy enhanced domains. Because this update affects application URLs, including Experience Cloud sites, Salesforce Sites, and Visualforce pages, we recommend that you enable and deploy enhanced domains before this feature is enforced.

Enhanced domains are deployed for you in phases starting in Winter ’23. You can disable the feature until it’s enforced in Winter ’24. For more information, see Enhanced Domains Timeline in Salesforce Help.
