Can you point sub-site to a non-root domain?

Using the multi-domain plugin, is there a way to point to vs just the root domain of

This would be HUGE!

Is there a way to allow the user of the subsite to create this inside Pro Sites or just using the multi-domain plugin?

Is there a tutorial on how to do this?

    Hello David , hope you’re doing well!

    Have you tried a Domain Mapping plugin?

    With the Domain mapping plugin, you can map your subsite to any domain like:



    The Multi-Domain plugin gives to users a choose to create a subsite with a different domain name that is pointing to your installation.

    Would you please elaborate and clarify, do you wish to point a subsite’s URL to your root site ?

    Please advise,

    Kind regards,

    I would like to post my subsite to the URL (basically it’s a trial landing page….)

    So, the client would already have a site on – we wouldn’t want to interfere with their main site.

    Hello David,

    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    I am sorry but I don’t think it is possible since you need to point the whole domain on a subsite. For this purpose, your domain must be pointed on the same server where your MultSites is. That means the other site will be unavailable.

    Take care and have a nice day :slight_smile:
