Multi Domains-Separate Install also?

Quick question, if I use Multi Domains on a network I run am I still able to have a separate Wordpress install using one of the added domains?

Would this affect it in any way? For example my network is say network1.com and I add a domain network2.com to the first network using multi domains and creating the wildcard subdomain.

Can I at the same time have network2.com set up as a separate wordpress install and successfully run sites there as well? or would it conflict?

    Hello Mike,

    Greetings and thanks for posting on the forums.

    if I use Multi Domains on a network I run am I still able to have a separate Wordpress install using one of the added domains?

    Not out of the box. Read this : https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/can-i-have-a-different-site-at-the-bare-domain-of-my-multi-domain

    If you have added a domain to multi domain, you can use that as a separate site but on the same network. Just create a site and using domain mapping plugin, map it to the domain.

    For example my network is say network1.com and I add a domain network2.com to the first network using multi domains and creating the wildcard subdomain.

    Then you can create a site as xyz.network1(or2).com and map network2.com to it using Domain mapping.

    Can I at the same time have network2.com set up as a separate wordpress install and successfully run sites there as well? or would it conflict?

    As a separate install ? No, not recommended coz multi-domains work on wildcards and so does multisite. So if you run it separately, its gonna create a mess (a big one)

    I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers
