    Hi, I am trying to setup a WP Multisite, have been working in WordPress for main years but this is my first multisite configuration.

    I want if possible to have Multisite setup on main (domain.com)
    but I want 2 other sites (domain1.com) & (domain2.com) all on the same shared host.

    My local development site is as network admin with the 3 my sites setup with domain.com, site1.domain.com (subdomain) & site2.domain.com(subdomain)

    But I can’t figure out if this is possible? Is multisite designed only for subdomains and subdirectories?

  • Hi @pantsman28,

    Is multisite designed only for subdomains and subdirectories?

    Well, the short answer is… yes… and no.

    Yes, WordPress Multisite, by default, will create sub-sites as either sub-domains or sub-directories.

    But you can easily map any external domain or even external sub-domain to the multisite sub-domain (or sub-directly). It’s seamless when done properly, and the original URL is effectively hidden (even from search engines).

    Previously, you had to use a domain mapping plugin to make this magic work, but now this feature is built in and you don’t even need to install any additional plugin.

    Hope that helps!
