[resolved] Mapping third-party domains (6 posts)

    Is it possible to use a third-party domain (whose wwww records point to my (mt) shared server) as a mapping domain to one of my WordPress Multisite blogs?

    I'm using http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/.

    If you have an A Record pointing to your IP address, or CNAME to the subdomain of the site on the network you want to use, then yes.

    That is, if I'm understanding the question.

  3. What exactly do you mean by third party domain?

    (I'm still guessing the answer is "yes" tho.)

    I'm sorry for not being clear. It means I don't own the domain and I don't even have access to its nameservers — the only thing I can do is tell my client "Here's my www record IP address. Now point it there so I can map it to my domain.com/example WordPress Multisite blog."

    I'm sorry again if I wasn't clear enough. I still don't manage the arts of talking this geeky stuff that well. Thanks, though.

  5. Yes.

    tell them to create an A record that points to your IP.
