Adding New WordPress Network Site on Shared Hosting

Situation:

wp-logo

  • Want to add a new WordPress Network site
  • Main site resides an shared hosting

Problem:

  • Can’t set up wildcard DNS because of shared hosting
  • Network Admin adds site OK
  • attempting to view new WordPress Network site yields “Server not found” or “This page can’t be displayed

Solution:

  • The world needs dynamic name system (DNS) entries to get to your new WordPress Network site
  • Add, or have your web hosting service add, a subdomain to your hosted domain
  • If your web hosting does not permit subdomains, it’s time to change your hosting package or your hosting provider.
  • (plug) We’d be happy to provide your hosting for you.
  • Adding the subdomain for your new site should automagically add the required DNS entries to enable the world to view your new WordPress Network site
