I've completed my wordpress page with a few subpages and one domain xyz.de. So I've a couple of pages, let's assume:




Right now, my second domain specific_topic.de redirects to xyz.de/specific_topic. I'm wondering whether it would be possible to keep the domain specific_topic.de in the addressbar of the browser, so when entering specific_topic.de, I want to see exactly the page which is right now shown when visiting xyz.de/specific_topic. There wouldn't be any subpages for specific_topic.de; it would JUST ONLY SHOW that single page. All the other menu items would again link to the original domain xyz.de.

So I want to get rid of the hard redirect, but instead keep the domain. This domain wouldn't have any further subpages, it's really just this domain for this one page named "specific_topic".

Is this possible?



This free plugin seems to be exactly for what you want, and is up to date: https://wordpress.org/plugins/multiple-domain-mapping-on-single-site/

You will need to point the DNS A record of the second domain to the same IP as the main one. There are more instructions in the FAQ section of the page I linked.

This is NOT for a multisite. It is for a single WordPress installation with multiple domains.

    it is not for multisite, it is not for woocommerse, you will have problems with admin and CORS, and it might just not work if you have some shitty code that do not generate URLs the wy the plugin expects. In addition to the plugin being a huge hit and miss by its own description, answers that are basically a link to a non canonical external resources are not much of an answer, and better be left as comments Mar 31 '18 at 10:07
  • @MarkKaplun What are you talking about? He never said woocommerce or multisite and the answer is not just a link. As far as I see I am giving him exactly what he wanted.

  • "What he wanted" is not a great attribute for answers around here. Can other people read this answer and learn anything from it? is much more important. If for example a guy with WC want to do the same, will your answer be helpful to him?. And you don't even know the OP do not use WC. Mar 31 '18 at 11:40
  • Neither do I have a multisite, not any WooCommerce, dunno even what it is. And the link nikolay posted seems to be exactly what I want, 100% hit. I'll check when I'm back home whether it works for my links or not, I'd not than I might just skip the idea of there's no easier built in way of doing so (@mark: or do you have a solution instead of just being negative)? Thanks nikolay, and Mark, I found this post quite fitting to your comments: eng.marksw.com/2016/03/12/… 😂🤔

    @tim I am glad it was useful for you. I guess Mark is trying to push people to do better answers, and he has contributed more than both of us on other topics (seeing his reputation) but pretty weird to want the answer to include things that are not even asked, if you ask me. Anyway. Regards to both.
