need to map multiple domain into one WP admin

Hi. I just installed 2 your plugins - domain mapping and multi domains.

What I am trying to achieve is this. My client sells something in more countries. he owns multiple domains, for each country. i.e
http://www.myproduct.sk for Slovakia
http://www.myproduct.cz for Czech
http://www.myproduct.com for US
etc.

On every domain, there will be the same WP site, with the same theme. the only difference will be obviously the language.

He wants to manage the content of those sites from one WP admin.

Is this possible with these 2 plugins? I have everything set except the A records DNS. When I do this last step will this work?

Thank you for your reply.

    Hey Boris,

    Hope you're doing well today and thanks for your question!

    I'm not sure Multi Domains would be needed in this situation.

    Multi domains is using to allow your multisite users to sign up with multiple domains, but your main site is still just the one domain.

    You could map domains in your network to the other options; however, your content wouldn't be synced over by default.

    Have you looked into http://wpml.org? Take a look at that and let me know if it is more the idea of what you're after here?

    You can of course still use Multi Domains and/or Domain mapping for your clients too :slight_smile:

    Hope this helps!

    Look forward to your reply.

    Cheers,
    Tyler

    Hey Boris,

    Thanks for your reply!

    You could do this with domain mapping and multisite. So you would create 2 subsites and name them whatever you like(ie. sk.myproduct.com and cz.myproduct.com) then domain map them to the top level domains you want so it would become myproduct.cz and myproduct.sk.

    Keep in mind these will be depsrate websites, but under the same network so you can still manage them from a single login.

    You can use plugins to help copy the content over if needed. Like our multisite content copier.

    You likely don't need Multi domains here unless you plan and letting users create sites with those other domains in it. ie. user.myproduct.cz instead of user.myproduct.com.

    Hope that helps!

    Let me know if you have any further questions here :slight_smile:

    Cheers,
    Tyler

    Thanks Tyler.

    So if I understood it correctly, first I will create a new site. There is just an optiion to create a new subsite, so it will look like this - http://awesomescreenshot.com/07c3ags8a5

    Then I go to all pages -> edit and there I can add the domain for this site. so instead of cz.bluekiwistudio.com I will just enter http://www.bluekiwistudio.cz - http://awesomescreenshot.com/06d3agsy43

    Now if I go to all sites and click Dashboard in bluekiwi.cz it would redirect me to WP admin (/wp-admin).

    But to be honest, I dont see the added value in here. What the plugin actually did, it created a link for WP admin. I was just redirected to bluekiwi.cz/wp-admin.But I could do that by myself too.
    I would just create simple website with all the links to WP admins and it would have the same affect, not? Or am I missing something?

    Thanks.

    Hello again @Boris,

    The original suggestion of my colleague @Tyler Postle is what I would suggest too.
    You can use WPML to manage the languages, and then set-it-up to change languages per domain.
    Then you can write completely different content on each language-site, it doesn't have to be the same! You can even use different menus etc.
    After that, you simply hide the language icons from your frontend and what you have is seemingly different and separate sites on the frontend, while in the backend it will all be 1 site managed on a per-language basis.

    I hope that helps!

    Cheers,
    Ari.
