Implement Domain Mapping to replace my current solution

There are from 20 to 30 sites on my multisite network, I am using this plugin to offer the domain mapping features, what I need to do is implement the domain mapping plugin from WPMU DEV so I was wondering what would be the process.

    Hello Steve

    We have a nice article that might help you:

    But still, let me simplify the procedure.

    For example, your main site is
    You have two subsites:
    These two subsites you want to map with following domains repectively:

    So, if anyone enter in the browser, it should show the site of Same for

    So, there are two scenarios now. Either you own all the domains, or you don't. First I think you own all the domains. site is hosted in a hosting whose nameservers are:

    So, you have entered these nameservers for domain panel. You have to set same nameservers for and domains too.

    Then you will add and domains as parked domain in the same hosting of, and make sure you point them to the wordpress root folder. So that if any one enter or it shows site.

    After that, you will add the domains in corresponding subsites using domain panel plugin, and the mapped domain will start working.

    Now, if you don't own the domains or can't host as parked domain, then you will need a dedicated IP. I know you won't have access to the domain panel of your customers so that you can't set name servers in there. So, you will pass them you IP and they need to set a DNS record for their domain and point to that IP. Only then domain panel will work.

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

    Have a nice day!
