Domain mapping - health invalid or domain name unavailable

Hi
I would like to map http://www.theblackbox.co.il/ to http://test.powerupmembership.com/

I entered the A record on the dns of theblackbox.co.il as you can see here http://www.dnsreport.co.il/Report/theblackbox.co.il
theblackbox.co.il A 192.185.101.142 [TTL=14400]

the domain theblackbox.co.il is not on the same hosting like powerupmembership.com

What I setup wrong?

    Hello @Yakov

    Welcome to WPMU community!

    I hope you are well today and thanks for asking the question.

    Yes, DNS is set correctly. Is this a dedicated IP? If yes, then the IP needs to be pointed to powerupmembership.com site. That means, if you enter the IP in the browser, powerupmembership.com site will be loaded. Once this is done, ypu can map the domain.

    Cheers

    Hello @Yakov

    You can ask your host if it is a dedicated IP. If it is not, then you have to buy a dedicated IP from your hosting.

    But, if you own both domain, you DO NOT need a dedicated IP. Do you have access of domain panels of both domains? If yes, you can set the same namserver in both domain panel. Then add the mapped domain as a parked domain in the same hosting of network domain.

    Like, powerupmembership.com has a nameserver, you will use the same nameserver in theblackbox.co.il. Then add theblackbox.co.il as parked domain in powerupmembership.com hosting and point to powerupmembership.com site.

    Hope it helps :slight_smile: Please feel free to ask more question if you have.

    Cheers
