Domain Mapping & Pro Sites Not Correctly Pointing to Correct Multisite Blog

Hi,

I am trying to get a page hosted on http://www.launchmypage.com/usersite to be hosted on http://www.usersite.com using the Domain Mapping Plug in and Prosites Plugin. I correctly updated the "A" Record to point to the server. However, whenever I type in "www.UserSite.Com" it points to another website that is hosted on the server. It is not properly redirecting or mapping to http://www.launchmypage.com/usersite.

I am certain I correctly configured everything. It just seems that it is not pointing to the multisite directory where the site is hosted. Its redirecting to another website on that same server.

Any idea?

John

    Hi

    The domain with the dedicated IP is http://www.launchmypage.com. I want my multi site blogs to be mapped. I can't reveal the initial domain due to client privacy. But I could private message it.

    When doing the mapping of the domain to a blog on this site, it takes the site to another site hosted on this server which is http://www.customerserviceinthecloud.com.

    I made the Dns changes and modified the domain to include the new NS server.

    Greetings John,

    Thank you for the additional information, it is greatly appreciated and enough to tell me what is going on.

    The domain launchmypage.com is hosted on a Go Daddy hosting platform which if you Google this you will find many a person having trouble with WordPress MultiSites plus the way they handle databases on a separate server can be troublesome.

    The previous statement was a heads up but not the reason for your Domain Mapping woes.

    The reason for your Domain Mapping woes and why the domain mapping is going to another site is because the domain is not on a dedicated IP as uncovered by my reverse IP test below:

    Reverse IP Lookup Results—12 domains hosted on IP address 97.74.83.161
    Web Sites:

    charliehustlemusic.com
    csinthecloud.com
    customerexperienceinthecloud.com
    AND 9 other domains…

    If in fact this were a dedicated IP this would read as 1 domains hosted on IP address 97.74.83.161
    Web Sites:
    launchmypage.com

    So therefore this is indeed not going to work correctly until the dedicated IP issue is resolved and there is no sense in beating our heads against the wall or moving further until this issue is indeed handled.

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe

    Thank you support Kangaroo.

    This helps. I am unfamiliar with the GoDaddy issues, but I never had a problem with them as a wordpress host. Do you recommend other hosting providers?

    I will request an additional IP Address and try to move over my multisite over to that IP address. Do you recommend any articles or links that show you step by step on how to move a Multipress Environment from One IP/Server to another?

    Thanks,

    John

    Greetings John,

    Thank you for your additional input, it is certainly appreciated.

    Do you recommend other hosting providers?

    This would possibly be wrong of me to answer myself since I own and operate an international hosting company.

    However, I can certainly point out others who have given there opinions:

    Do you recommend any articles or links that show you step by step on how to move a Multipress Environment from One IP/Server to another?

    On a cPanel server this is easy and painless, on other type os servers this could be a nightmare, of course if you want to keep the same site and not start anew.

    Probably the best thing to do is to backup the first and original site completely to include the database and then transfer the files to the new server.

    In the case of matching control panels you would probably be best served by restoring the above mentioned backup using the restore command if indeed there is one.

    Did I leave anything out before considering closing this ticket?

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe
