  • Hello all,

    I’m having problems setting up my multisite with domain mapping. Current Setup:

    WP Multisite with subfolder install
    Using WordPress MU Domain Mapping Plugin

    My question is this:

    On my web hosting (Bluehost), the primary domain that i’m using for my wordpress is not the primary domain attached to my web hosting. So for example:

    WP Main Domain ->
    Web Hosting Primary Domain ->

    Now, is an add on domain. So first question is, do i use the ip address or cname option when setting up the domain settings?

    second question is, for other domains, how do i setup the A Name or C Name. I can’t seem to get it to point to So if my second domain is:, do i need to setup a CName www that points to or an AName www that points to

    Sorry i’m a noob with mx entries… Hope someone can help me.

  • The easiest way to set up domain mapping is to point all your add-on domains to the same folder.. and use the IP

    So the A records for all of your add-on domains point to your server name (do a dig on your hosting domain ( and make them all the same).
    Then you’ll need to go into your cpanel or plesk or whatever they give you and point all your add-on domains at the folder you have wordpress installed in.
    Then enter the IP of your server (just ping
    Map all your add-on domains through the plugin to the various blogs.

    Good luck 🙂
