Specify Wordpress Subdomains

  • Posted December 16, 2013


I’ve got a multi-site wordpress setup working well.

Currently I have

This works well. But my DNS is setup as a wildcard DNS - so if someone tries to visit - it takes them to the wordpress registration page (which is disabled). I want it to throw a 404 instead.

So I tried to remove the wildcard DNS, and specify an A record for each site - but now it just takes me to the home page.

Any idea how I can do this correctly?
