    Hi there. My question is simple.

    My site say mysite.com was hosted on some other hosting providers. I created a (sub)site mysite.somecooldomain.com in my network say somecooldomain.com and now want to use that subsite mysite.somecooldomain.com redirect to domain mysite.com. I read this on the documentation of plugin

    “When mapping a domain, (like ‘example.com’) your users must create an A record in their DNS pointing at that IP address”.

    Do I need to update the nameservers on my old hosting? Or I have to add a CNAME on that?

    You don’t need the subsite. You can do the redirect in your DNS for mysite.somecooldomain.com.

    If your DNS provider doesn’t offer/allow redirects you can do the redirect in your .htaccess file.
