Chapter 6: Using Multiple Domains within Your Network

In This Chapter

  • Introducing domain mapping
  • Understanding how to map domains
  • Advanced usage

With a network of multiple sites easily available in WordPress, many people have expressed the desire to run multiple sites on their own separate domain names through one install. Prior to the network feature being added to the WordPress software, users could only run one site per installation of the software. Now, it is possible to run several different sites under one installation of WordPress by activating the network feature, which we discussed in Chapters 4 and 5 of this minibook.

In this chapter, we discuss using multiple domains and a feature called Domain Mapping, that enables you to run not only multiple sites, but also multiple sites with their own, unique domain name that is not tied to the main site installation domain.
