I just set up domain mapping for a new domain on a hosting account that is shared. When I say shared, I mean shared with other customers, I'm assuming, but also with any domains I have on the account. Every domain shares the same IP, so I'm not sure whether that creates an issue for the MU site here.
So I guess that using the IP address in the configuration is sort of out of the question, but how does the CNAME configuration work? Do I need to use subdomain.domain.tld? Can I just use domain.tld?
Or is it simply not recommended to use the domain mapping plugin from a shared IP? Like is it easier from a dedicated IP? I don't mind experimenting with another host if I can get around these problems.
Secondly, do I adjust the DNS settings for my domain at the registrar? Or do I actually need to host the domain? I can change my DNS settings in either place, but the closest I've had this to working is using URL forwarding from my registrar, but it resolves to my host saying "This domain ain't here dude!" That's paraphrased :)
I'm THINKING that I might need to try another host at this point based on the results I'm getting, I'm just not 100% sure yet.
Thanks in advance!!
