Using Blue Host for the web hosting, I set up Multi-site with a main domain, set up sub sites and activated the domain mapping plugin. I have 13 sites set up, and want to point 13 unique domains (registrar is GoDaddy). I mapped each site to the domain and pointed (A records) the 13 domains to the IP at Blue Host, but the sites are not resolving. When I go to one of the domains, I get a, "There is no website configured at this address." message.
I've done this, successfully, on another server using ISPConfig - but for that account, I had to put in the 13 domains the Co-Domains section so they know which site is the parent site. I guess that is what I am missing in this setup?
I did read that I need to set up the Name Servers to point to Blue Host, so I did that for one site, and instead of the aforementioned message, I now get Blue Host's landing page. So it's either not fully propagated to the main site or I'm missing something.
There's also a message in my Super Admin Domain Mapping "Mapped Domains" tab, that lists the sites that are mapped and I see this under DNS Configuration:
Host Name: jmkcustomshutters.com
Record Type: CNAME
Value: IP not set by admin yet..
Are my external domains set up right? They need to point to the IP AND Name Server for the Blue Host account? Is my configuration set up correctly as far as the domain mapping plugin?
