cannot map domain to subdomain

I have installed the Domain Mapping plugin, moved sunrise.php and added the define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' ); line in wp-config.

My network install is in a folder in a VPS account with westhost. The network install is in which is an add-on domain setup with wildcard subdomains enabled.

My primary domain is The IP address for my VPS is and the name servers are SNS1.WESTSERVERS.NET and SNS2.WESTSERVERS.NET.

I am ready to take my first client site live. The subdomain is and I want to use the URL to access the site.

The domain is registered at godaddy I have access to account.

When I go to Settings > Domain Mapping > Mapped Domains I get No Items found and there is no option to add a domain.

What steps remain in order for me to map the domain with this plugin?

    Hey there, Chris!

    You're almost there.

    Step 1: In your Network Dashboard, go to Settings > Domain Mapping and make sure your IP is resolving to your A record. If it is, you should see a green alert box telling you that it's successful.

    Step 2: Go to the site you want to map the new domain to, and navigate to Tools > Domain Mapping. From here, it's just a few clicks to add the map the site to the new domain.

    This should have you all set! Thanks for your question!
