We recently expanded to a second server with LiquidWeb for performance gains. I'm running into some issues with mapping domains and serving our own public site.
Root WP multisite install at: https://nettechdata.com
I initially thought I could use the root site as our public website. But when I tried to map a domain to it, I found the domain mapping plugin was unavailable for the root site. So I cloned to a subsite: https://ntpub.nettechdata.com where I could map our public domain (https://nettech.net) to it. This is working, serving the subsite as our public site on our primary (nettech.net) domain.
Problem: The original root site is still being served from our root domain (nettechdata.com), but it is not updated, as our public site is actually at ntpub.nettechdata.com, so if anyone errantly goes to nettechdata.com, they get a broken site.
Is there any way (within WordPress admin) for me to point nettechdata.com (which is my root) as a redirect to a subsite within itself (ntpub.nettechdata.com), or is it up to us to make sure no one visits that URL directly?
I don't want to screw around with my DNS and create any loops, but I don't see any way to make it work. Just want to make sure I'm not overlooking something.
