I've been using multisite for over a year and have set up subfolder sites (i.e., mysite.com/site1, mysite.com/site2) and a subdomain site (i.e., site3.mysite.com).
I'd like to use separate domains for implementations as well and just want to check to see whether I'd go through the same process.
It would seem that this would be similar to a subdomain implementation. For that, I created a folder in the sites directory of site3.mysite.com and put the proper settings.php file and file directory underneath it. I then had to update my DNS to point that subdomain to my server's IP address. This process worked fine.
Now, to set up a separate domain (i.e., www.mysite4.com) would I just follow that same process and create a site directory of mysite4.com? Could I then just repoint my DNS server to my server's new IP address? Or is there a different process involved.
On a related note, I have mysite4.com as a live site now and I'm basically moving it to a new server. At the same time, I'm creating a whole new site, which I'll need time to build before going live. Is it possible to just implement this as a subdomain first (i.e., site4.mysite.com) and then change the site directory name when I'm ready to launch it? Or is there a different recommended process involved?
Thanks in advance for any guidance.
