WordPress Multisite with Multiple Domains Setup


WordPress development has changed forever with the launch of WordPress 3.0. This has introduced multisite and multiple domain features. This allows WordPress developers to manage different networks of sites without having to manage different installations. With this feature enabled, all the WordPress sites are connected in WordPress network that allows you to install themes, plugins in one place and enable them at will.  It also makes the backup and upgrading procedures very easy which can be achieved with a few clicks in the admin panel.

 

This helps you create different websites for different entities of your business rather than using too many subdomains. You can hire WordPress developers to set up the primary and secondary domain on the same admin panel. This is ideal for businesses which have multiple websites such as media organizations, e-commerce websites and technology companies. You will have the option of customizing a single websites and the rest will be updated automatically.

 

Tips to Setup WordPress Multisite with Multiple Domains

 

  • Start with setting up the main domain. You need to register a domain and set it up on the server and host it. Once that is done, you are ready to upload the files. Your website will have a primary domain and as many secondary domains as you want.
  • In the next step, create a secondary domain for example [secondary.primary.com] that will negate the chances of a 404 error. You need to park your secondary domain as this will make the development easy. 
  • Install WordPress 3.0 in your primary domain and define multisite in the wp-config.php file. Choose the subdomains amongst sub-domains and sub-directories. This will lead you to a super admin from where you can control all the websites.
  • The last step in the process is mapping the primary and the secondary mapping. You can easily do this by downloading the wordpress-mu-domain-mapping plugin. Once you have extracted the plugin and set it up you need to set up the server Ip address to the ip address.
  • While mapping add the secondary domain under the new domain. This will help your secondary site will be available at www.secondary.com instead of secondary.primary.com which can be controlled from the same domain.

 

Multisite and multiple domain set up is easier said than done and you will require developers with expertise in WordPress development.
