Multi Domains vs Domain Mapping


I'm a bit confused re Multi Domains vs Domain Mapping, don't they do the same thing.?

I'm using Domain Mapping on a site to map a set of different domains into a multi site - works great..!

So, when would I use Multi domains..?

thanks for some clarification..

    Hey there.

    Nah, they're kinda similar but vastly different at the same time. :slight_smile:

    Domain Mapping - Map a domain to a specific site within your network.

    Multi-domains - Create sub sites for any domain. Allow your members to also create subsites using any of your domains.

    So if you owned:

    You could let members use and to get websites. And then reserve (if you wanted) for just websites you create.

    Multi Domains does not map a domain to a specific site, it just lets you create sites using that domain. So if you wanted to map you'd still need the Domain Mapping plugin.

    Does that make more sense for you?

    Take care.

Thank NAME, for their help.
