Just getting started with domain mapping and trying to understand all the instructions. My first attempt failed. so on to the troubleshooting now.
Question 1: Most of my subsites have purchased their own domain on a third party registrant (like Godaddy) and have “redirected” their domain to their subdomain on my mulitisite. Do I need to have them remove this redirection before using my domain mapping?
Question 2: When I attempted to map their domain, I got the message to check the DNS records. Does this mean the DNS on their domain or the DNS of my primary multisite domain?
Question 3: There is a new field with a drop down list of choices in the plugin that is not in the instruction page. It says, “Front end should be redirected to…” and then there are three choices. I need help on understanding what this is all about. Is there another thread talking about this?
I guess I just need to read up on A records to understand what I am attempting to do and whether I need to do anything further on my own domain name, or on the subsites’ registrants.
