Question

How do i map a subdomain (Wordpress/Ubuntu) to it's own registered domain

Hi, installed wordpress using the 1 click set up on Ubuntu 14.04. I created my main wordpress site, then i enabled multisite and created a second subdomain site.

I assigned my ip address to my first site and pointed it’s registered domain to the digital oceans name server.

How do i map the subdomain site to another registered domain, so instead of the address being “subdomain.domain.com” it has it’s own unique address even though they both have the same ip address.

You need to create DNS A records for each subdomain you wish to use and point them to the IP address of your server. Alternatively, you can create a single “wildcard” entry. Check out this tutorial for more information on setting up WordPress Multisite. It doesn’t use the One-Click app as a base, but it should point you in the right direction.
