    Hello there @Chris, I hope you're well today!

    I'm afraid I've never used Media Temple or their Grid Server.

    What do you mean by "domain mapping is not working"?
    What is not working? Are you getting any errors? Could you please provide some more details on what you're getting?

    Please advise,
    Ari.

    Hi Thanks for your reply.

    I have setup wp multisite on the domain itradelocal.com

    I now want to add existing and create new sites to the multisite network.

    So far now I have created a new site which has the subdomain goequestrian.itradelocal.com. All works fine.

    I want the domain go-equestrian.com to point to the subdomain created by wp multisite. I am getting a message when using the Domain Mapping tool 'Domain name is unavailable for access.

    That's my problem. I am using Media Temple Grid server with fixed ip address, but is a shared service.

    Do you have dedicated IP and is the IP pointed to the root of main site? I mean when you enter the IP in the browser, the main site should be loaded.

    Then, in the DNS for mapped domain you need to point to the IP of main site.

    If the mapped domain can be hosted in same hosting of main site, then you can use parked domain and point to the main site installation.

    Cheers
