Add domain to existing website
« on: December 15, 2018, 04:55:12 PM »
I have a domain added into CWP and a directory/website setup. I will like to add another domain to point to that same directory/website such that when I type in www.newSite.com it will show the same website as i type www.oldSite.com. And will doing this mess up my SEO?

Can anyone advise me how to do this?

you would simply need to check that the path for it is the same but in many cases this will not work as many sites like wordpress run rewrite rules and then it would redirect back to main domain...so you would need to run multisite config if wordpress is in question

Hi studioforhost,

Yes it is for wordpress site. I have a wordpress site and now i will like to change it's domain name. Seems like achieving this using CWP isn't so straightforward. What do you mean by wordpress multisite? I am not so familiar with this, will it still be the same website?
