What DNS records need to be added?

I have a cPanel server. With my multi-site installation with domain mapping, will I need to create a parked domain for every mapped domain? Are there any DNS records that I need to set so the domains resolve correctly on the server?

Thanks

    Hey there @David

    I hope you're well today!

    You'll find detailed answers to those questions on the plugin usage page right here:
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/domain-mapping/#usage

    Basically, the answer is yes. Each domain that is mapped needs to have an "A" record set up that points to the IP of your multisite. This requires a dedicated IP to work properly.

    If your site is not on a dedicated IP, then you would use addon or parked domains and manage the DNS there. That's not recommended though if you want clients (sub-site admins) to be able to manage their own DNS.

    Please see the usage page for all the details.

    If you have any issues, don't hesitate to post again though. We're here to help walk you through it if need be.
