  • Hi,

    I want to change the domain name of one my sites in my Multisite setup (not the primary domain).

    1. How do I go about doing this?
    2. And is there a plugin anyone can recommend for 301 redirection and other considerations for SEO?

    Cheers!

  • Hello,

    There are https://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network step-by-step instructions for setting up multisite in the WP codex.
    For SEO plugin I recommended this – https://wordpress.org/plugins/seo-redirection/

    Let me know if you need any further help on this
    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply. I’ve already setup WordPress Multisite. I believe the step by step instructions for changing a domain name using MultiSite is a lot easier than WordPress stand alone. My understanding is that the following process is needed (please confirm).

    1. Add the new domain to cpanel
    2. Go to wp-admin -> network -> Settings -> Domain
    3. find the domain you want to change
    4. Click Edit
    5. Put in the new domain

    6. And then use a redirection plugin like the one you suggested. I’m assuming you can use this plugin even after you’ve changed the domain, as it’s just changing .htaccess?

    Is that the correct procedure?

    Cheers
