    Hello @itschner, I hope you are well today!

    Welcome to WPMU DEV community!

    First of all, I would like to ask you, do you have a dedicated IP?

    Sorry, this may sound a little tedious, just to make sure, are you using WordPress Multisite Network?

    I don't need so tu upload wordpress in each hosting space on my server ?

    No, you do not need to upload WordPress in each hosting space.

    i just need to configure DNS ?

    To successfully map your domain, there are three things you need to change:

    - A record
    The A record of your domains site2.com, site3.com should point to a record with the IP address of your site’s hosting account. Please check that your domains do not have www.

    - CNAME
    CNAME setup is for subdomain mapping. The host should be set to http://ftp.site1.com where site1.com if your site’s URL. The record should point to site1.com, but with your own site’s URL. For some registrars, there should be two hosts, one set as ftp and the other set as www. They should both point to @.

    - Nameservers
    These addresses are given to you by your site hosting provider and they are used to bridge the gap between your domain and the IP address of your hosting account so visitors can reach your site.

    In case you having trouble to setup your DNS please see the following video:

    Finally, if i will have differente templates on each domain but using the same wordpress its ok with this plugguin ?

    Yes, you can use different theme template for each of your subdomains or subdirectories. This will not affect in any way the Domain Mapping Plugin.

    I also changed the topic of this thread to Domain Mapping Plugin

    Nice thanks for your quick reply !
    So yes i have dedicated IP on Plesk
    I have setup Multisite its ok and work correctly.
    All DNS of my domains in registar point to my dedicated IP.
    Ok for the multitemplate that nice.

    But actually in network admin / site when i go to add site, i can only add
    http://www.site1.com/name. I need to change name with site2.com then configure DNS that is ?

    According dns, so in plesk i need activate PLESK DNS manager, then i have to create ns1 / Ns2 field (so i transfer from my registar the dns managing system on my server that is ?) and when its server that manage dns it will work

    Sorry my english is not so fluent so that why i'am not well understanding ^^

    Finaly my programmeur seems to have installed another mapping systeme file working.
    But its look less functionnality than yours
    When domain mapping is setup, normally at the end with your plugguin i can go
    - In global setting systeme (network admin)
    - Then in each mapped website admin - (site 1 admin / site2 admin etc) or domain mapping just map website without having acces to individual admin?
    Thanks so much for your reply !

    Hi @itschner,

    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    Yes, with domain mapping plugin you will have network options as well as as some basic sitewide settings along with domain mapping option.

    At the moment, I am really confuse what is the issue here exactly ? The domain health status is not turning to green ?

    Also a quick tip, sometimes there can be issue with health checker because of outdated record provider by hosting server. If you are sure that domains are configured properly and fully propagated, then you can disable this option from Network > Settings > Domain Mapping > Mapping Options > Verify domain's DNS settings

    Hope that helps! If you still need assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Take care and have a nice day :slight_smile:

    Kind Regards,
    Sajid J
