Hi,

If I use shared hosting and set up a Wordpress Multisite application - how would I map multiple domains to subsites within the Multisite network. And how would I set up the SSL certs for these domains?

Cheers!

Hello,

Because SSL certificate installations are tied to the name of the relevant website entry, you'll need a website for each domain that needs to be accessed securely. The way you point all of them to your multisite install is by simply using the same application for each site. You'll need just one website entry for all the domains with HTTPS turned off, then multiple entries for each domain that needs HTTPS to be turned on, and all of them are going to be served by the same application.

Once you have that set up, just open a ticket so we can set up your certificates.
