    You say 'Point all domains to your WordPress vhost'. What exactly does that mean and how is it done.

    I have an install of WordPress on a shared server, I have created pages that I want to map domains to. From what I can see, this is exactly what your plugin does, I just don't understand the 'Point all domains to your WordPress vhost' bit.

    Hey there.

    Apache supports VirtualHosts, which allows it to server different website from one server (www.domain-a.com, http://www.domain-b.com are on the same server with the same IP but get different content).

    In your vhost.conf you'll have something

    <VirtualHost *:80>
     ServerName domain-a.com
     ServerAlias www.domain-a.com
    </VirtualHost>

    That's the part. If you want domain-b.com to point to your WP install as well, you need to add

    ServerAlias domain-b.com

    Hope that helps!
