  2. Can you release the updated tutorial? Love your channel. However, This is outdated. I'm trying to map my subdomains to domains I've purchased. From what I understand. I dont need the domain mapping plugin anymore. However I didn't know and watched your video and installed it. Do I have to deactivate it now? And remove the sunrise folder and code?

  4. Awesome Tutorial is really easy to follow thank you. Question is there a way to link woo commence database to multiple sites so when you update it, it updates all sites as I have a client that has multiple sites that sell very similar products on all of them. Thank you in advance

  5. Hello sir, this is a very good info i am looking for my situation. But i need to understand. Is this really mean that you can have two different domain with two different themes?

  6. Great tutorial, thank you so much, i just have a question. If we create multiple sites in one account are they using the same database? If they do, wouldn´t that slow down the page loading time?

  7. Hi, and thanks for many useful videos 🙂
    I have one question: I see in the video that you add a domain "without www", but how can I add a domain "with http://www." and direct the domain "without www" so it goes straight to the domain "with www"? Because if I add a domain "with www", then the page will not appear if I type the domain name "without www" … (I get an error). Thanks again 🙂

  8. Hey,
    after adding define( ‘SUNRISE’, ‘on’ );
    to the wp-config file at the right line it says following:

    Please uncomment the line define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' ); or add it to your …/htdocs/wp-config.php

    Do you have an idea why it says that? Maybe some other settings in my wp config causes this error?

  10. If you have an existing site you are ranking and the client wants the domain name changed is this the best practice to use? Or should you duplicate or migrate site to new domain? How does each option affect seo efforts?

  11. Hello Bjorn. Great video, a lot of great pointers and great solution. I do have a question however.

    When you map these domains together and start editing the websites, what if you wanted to remove one of the domains with their current content from the multisite to a standard single installation of wordpress, would that be possible?

  12. Help. My multisite, and it's domain, are hosted on Godaddy as well as the domain I want to map for the subsite. I added both "*" and a "@" A names. It's been over three hours and my domain home page still says, "Future Home of Something Cool". Any advice? Is there more I need to do? Do I need to change name servers?

  13. For those of you that are setting up your multisite with sub domains and want to map them to a non-subdomain ( maps to, make sure you set things up like this (I'm using GoDaddy hosting):
    – Domains are pointing to hosting IP address
    – Subdomains created in cPanel (, pointing to public_html directory
    – Addon domains created in cPanel for mapped URL (, pointing to public_html directory
    – Domain Mapping Plugin maps to
