How to Set Up WordPress Multisite on GoDaddy Hosting

Setting up WordPress Multisite with GoDaddy hosting is more of an “If you have to…” situation, which means if you’re being compelled by a die-hard GoDaddy customer. I wouldn’t recommend GoDaddy hosting to anyone, but if you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of having to work on it for someone else, here’s what to do:

1. Step 1: Enable Multisite

This is easy. You’ll add this to your wp-config.php file:

define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);

Step 2: Set the structure of your Multisite installation

Log into WordPress and go to Tools > Networks. Select sub-directories. P.S.: You’re not going to get another chance on this one, so make sure you choose the right option.

Please Note: You cannot use the WordPress Subdomains option with GoDaddy hosting.

This means you must select sub-directories.

Now add your network title and admin email.

Step 3: Complete the installation by following the instructions displayed after you click Install

WordPress will tell you where to go from here. You’ll copy and paste some code into your wp-config.php file and call it a day.
