Do you have more than one web domain? Do you want to get visitors from a range of domains redirected back to a specific source? If so, those who have multiple domains will want to know how to prioritize them so that people are redirected appropriately. This is also good to know if you are setting up a WordPress account and want to have multiple accounts to manage multiple domains, multiple sites, and multiple businesses.

The first thing you need to know about having more than one domain in your WordPress Account, is that various WordPress domains that you have purchased, if hosted by WordPress will all point to one site. This is called domain forwarding, redirecting, or what some people call setting the Primary Domain.

Setting the primary domain is as simple as clicking a button within the “shopping” area under My Domains, Setting Primary Domain and selecting which domain you want to be the primary. It doesn’t take very long at all, and the effect is almost immediate, so you can have your previous domain name pointed to your new one. You have a wide range of domains within your account, all being pointed to the Primary.

If you want your domain hosted elsewhere, then you will have to adjust it accordingly, otherwise it will be set to point to the Primary. If you want to host it with WordPress, then you may have to create a new WordPress account so that it can be posted as a separate primary. Having a second primary through the use of an alternative login can offer solutions to brand management, and provide business solutions for small business.
