    Hi @creativelinks

    On a multisite installation, your site becomes the main network site, or hub of the whole network.

    When additional sites are created, either by you or by your users (if you give them that capability), they are actually sub-sites of your main site.

    Depending on how you set up your network, those sub-sites can be sub-domains of your main site (ex 1 below), or sub-directories of your main site (ex 2).
    Ex 1: site1.mainsite.com
    Ex 2: mainsite.com/site1

    Either way, sub-sites are not actual domains. They are virtual sites that share the domain of your main site.

    You can offer your users the use of their own domain names for sub-sites with the use of a Domain Mapping plugin. And we have one (cool huh?):

    Hope this helps! And thanks for being a member :slight_smile:
