I’ve been running a single domain/site with LunarPages for several months, and I now want to add a second domain. Basically, I want one domain for my company, and then an additional distinct domain for each product. (Right now, I’ve only got one product, but I hope this will grow in the future.)
My current setup uses two separate WordPress installations. The first is located in my public_html folder, and supports my original domain (www.fireandflora.com). The second is in a subfolder of public_html called, and supports my new domain/site (www.mindfulmammoth.com).
The problem with this setup is that it requires separate logins for users. If a user wants to post a comment on fireandflora.com, they need to create an account with that WordPress install. Then, if that same user wants to comment on MindfulMammoth, they need to create another account, this time with the other WordPress install. I’d like to have things set up so that users can create one account that works across both domains.
This doesn’t sound like a subdomain setup, as both domains start with www. But according to this I can’d to a subfolder install, since my existing install has been around more than a month.
Is there a way to make this happen? To either reconfigure WordPress, or do a reinstall, so that it can handle two domain names, and have a single login that works for both? Can this be done gracefully so that I can continue to make use of the content in my existing wordpress database?
