WordPress MU Domain Mapping CNAME / IP Records not resolving

  • I did a sub-domain multi-site setup on an existing WordPress site.
    Main site
    Sub-Domain in Question

    The server is hosted at Bigrock and does not have a dedicated IP.

    The client purchased http://mukeshaudiovision.com from Bigrock.

    Assumably, I should be able to point the new domain to the top-level domain (garodia.in) and the domain mapping plugin should re-route it to the sub-domain for the site. I have it mapped in the plugin already.

    DNS records for the new domain (http://mukeshaudiovision.com):

    Using Forwarding and Masking facility I am able to point http://mukeshaudiovision.com to mukeshaudiovision.garodia.in (this is just a landing page for now, so this is a temporary solution, but it works, however I can’t pass sub-directories on this domain as a limitation of the company the domain was purchased through.)
    www CNAME garodia.in (this isn’t resolving, as you can check here)
    * CNAME garodia.in (also not working)

    What am I doing wrong. I need to have this sorted out relatively quickly as I’ll need sub-directories for http://mukeshaudiovision.com to pass properly for further development.

    You need to park the domain you want to map onto your WP install in you web account control panel.

    Thanks Ron, I had purchased a domain and parked it now what is the next step I need to follow?

    Sub-domain: omprakashagarwal.garodia.in (Domain and Hosting with Bigrock)

    New Domain: omprakashagarwal.com (Domain with Godaddy and Parked)

    I added CNAME record in my new domain registrar as

    www omprakashagarwal.garodia.in

    Still it is pointing to default page. Waiting for your reply.

    Thanks in advance

    Where is omprakashagarwal.com parked?

    @wpmuguru

    Also, the CNAME should probably not include the www.

    I had purchased and parked the domain(omprakashagarwal.com) from godaddy and my hosting is in Bigrock (main domain: garodia.in and sub-domain: omprakashagarwal.garodia.in)

    whereas CNAME record

    Host Points to
    www omprakashagarwal.garodia.in

    @wpmuguru

    Did you park the domain at godaddy (your DNS) or at bigrock (your web account)?

    domain is parked in godaddy

    @wpmuguru

    It needs to be parked onto your main site in your web hosting account. I’ve never parked a domain in godaddy DNS so I’m not sure what effect that will have on the domain name lookup.
