[resolved] Second Domain on WordPress (8 posts)

    All I want to do is to use WordPress for my OTHER domains I have purchased. It sure is alot of work to figure out how to do it. I have been wasting my time for THREE days and I'm really no further along than I was before I spent my hard-earned money to buy the domains. It would seem to me there has got to be an easier way! What am I missing? I'm not a developer, but I'm not stupid.
    And I should use WordPress... why?
    PLEASE help me!! If there is a way to use a second domain on WP (and I'd like to use more if it's not too aggravating)
    Why is it so complicated to do such a simple thing?! Don't you want users??
    If you could just tell me how to use a second and third separate domain name on wp I will put ALL my pages here. The first page was a breeze, but if the second and third are so difficult to do maybe I'll just go elsewhere.

  2. Take a deep breath. Hold it for a count of ten. Exhale. Calm down :)

    If you want to run multiple, SEPARATE, domains via one WordPress install, you want Multisite and a domain mapping plugin, or you want three accounts on your webhost.

    If you want all three domains to point to the same place, you just need to point the domains to the main domain.

    What do you want?

    Thank You! Yes, you are right I was pretty frustrated. Sorry.
    What I want to do is to run totally separate sites with unique URL's. I have Hostgator as my hosting account. I used Fantastico to move to WP.
    If I'm understanding correctly, I want a sub-domain and not a sub-directory....Is that correct?
    I updated my WP and am now using version 3.1.2.
    Any help would be very appreciated. Thanks for your prompt response.

  4. Subdomains are URLs like foo.domain.com

    Anyway, you can do that. http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network

    It doesn't matter if you make subfolders or subdomains, as you'll be redirecting it in the end :)

    After everything, it seems the page is not re-directing properly. I can access my WP dashboard and view my posts, but cannot access from google.
    Please help! Where is the problem?

  7. If you can get to the domain's by their real URLs, then it's just waiting on Google to catch up.

    Apparently, that was the case. Thanks, again for your prompt response and all your help. I would consider this problem resolved.
