    Is it possible to have a Network with a domain starting with “www.”?

    For example. We have to have our main site accessible at and have sub domain WP sites at,

    Activating this plugin causes the sub domain sites to error;

    No site defined on this host. If you are the owner of this site, please check Debugging a WordPress Network for help.

    Checking hosted sites for correct Network-related values:

    Site 7 ( has an invalid domain setting.

    Hi ecenica,

    It is possible to have a Network based off any domain, including one starting with “www.” Sounds like you may have created new networks that overlapped the namespace of your primary network.

    Is yours a sub-domain install or a sub-directory install?
    Is your main network “”?

    Thanks for replying so quickly! 🙂

    We’re running a sub-domain install. We were getting the error when our main install was running on (which we achieved through an htaccess/mysql hack).

    As a workaround we’ve setup as a network and moved our other sub domain sites to that network.

    We’ve then added an htaccess rule to rewrite traffic from to

    A bit confusing, but at the end of it we have a multiple network WordPress, with multiple sub domain sites all working exactly as we want it to. 🙂


    Stating obvious, but for clarities-sake is not the real domain name 🙂
