How to Redirect Two Domains to One WordPress Hosting
You are probably familiar with the idea of having multiple domains pointing to the same place. This is called “hosting” multiple domains from one place. What if you want to do the same for your existing sites? You can use a plugin like Domain Mummy to accomplish this. In this article, we will teach you how to redirect two domains to one WordPress hosting space so that you can continue to make money online while also providing a better experience for your visitors.
What is Domain Mummy?
If you’ve ever tried to create a free blog on WordPress, you may have run into problems. WordPress makes it very easy to set up a blog, but it also has many hidden settings and tricks that non-techies can stumble upon. For example, you need to have a certain amount of disk space to make it work. Most free blogs won’t accept new members because they hit the limit on disk space. In addition, WordPress requires you to keep the site updated with new content often. This is because the plugins and the platform itself are constantly being improved.
Domain Mummy is a plugin that helps you run more sites from one place. It was designed for people like you who are running multiple blogs and websites from one location. When you activate this plugin, you can add as many as you want and they will be accessible through a single login. In addition, all of the sites will be stored on a single domain. This means that all of the sites will be able to communicate with each other and will act as one big website.
How Does It Work?
When you set up two separate domains that point to the same hosting space, the first thing that will happen is that your visitors will be redirected to the first domain that they visit. This is often a subdomain of the main domain. So, for example, blog.example.com and shop.example.com will both lead to the same hosting space. If a user clicks on a product on the shop domain, they will be automatically redirected to the blog domain. After they login on the blog, they will see all of the products listed on the shop as well.
This is extremely beneficial to your visitors. When they are on your blog, they will usually be looking for content related to your niche. So if you choose a niche like fitness, they will only see content related to that topic. In addition, the content on your blog will be the same for all websites. This means that even if a visitor lands on your site because they are looking for a product related to food, they will still see the same info that they would have if they had just come to your fitness blog. This makes your website more user-friendly.
Why Should You Use Domain Mummy?
There are several reasons why you should use Domain Mummy. First, all of the sites that you create with this plugin will automatically keep the same “look and feel” as the original site. This removes the need for you to go through and edit every single page on the other sites. Second, all of the sites will be stored on the same domain, which means that you don’t have to worry about disk space. When your storage is full, you will simply have to delete some content or files to make more room. Third, because all of the sites are linked to each other, whenever you go to one site, the other sites will pop up in the sidebar. This is extremely convenient because it means that you can always find what you’re looking for without having to go from site to site.
Finally, whenever you want to update content on one of the sites, you just have to go in and do it on the main site. This means that you will never have to worry about forgetting to update a blog on one of the other sites because you only update the main site.
How Do I Install And Configure Domain Mummy?
The first thing that you need to do is install Domain Mummy on your server. After this, you need to create a username and password for the site. This will be the login for all of the sites that you create. You can call the main site that you create with this plugin “parent” and the other sites that you create will be its “children”. To create these sites, simply go to the dashboard of your WordPress installation and click on the “Add New Site” button. You can name the new site whatever you want and then choose “child” as the site’s theme. This will create a new site with the same appearance as your parent site.
One important thing to note is that you need to make sure that the IP address of your server is not banned from WordPress.org. Otherwise, you will have problems uploading new content to your sites. To check on this, visit this website and input your IP address into the space provided. If you see a red “X” next to your IP, you will need to change your hosting provider or switch to a static IP. This is because the redirection that Domain Mummy performs depends on your IP being static. If you want a redirection that is not dependent on your IP changing, you will need to find a static IP or use a different hosting provider.
Once I Have Domain Mummy, How Do I Use It?
After you installed Domain Mummy, you need to log in to your WordPress dashboard and click on the “Settings” link. From here, you can access the Settings tab and edit the different properties for your sites. To set up the redirection, visit the Settings page for each site that you created and then scroll down to the bottom. Here, you will see a button named “Redirect”. Click on this button and a popup will appear where you can enter the URLs of the two domains that you want to redirect. For example, if you enter blog.example.com and shop.example.com, the first domain that your visitor will be redirected to is blog.example.com. If you want to make sure that people don’t mistake your child sites for your original site, you can enter the correct URL for each site in the Redirect field.
To set the appearance of your sites, you can edit the Header and Footer of each one. To do this, enter the HTML that you would like to include in the page’s header or footer in the appropriate field. If you are using WordPress Pages, you can also rearrange the order of the page elements in the Appearance tab.
