Primary domain

Multiple domains can point to a VIP environment, but only one domain can be the primary domain. This is true for WordPress single sites and for WordPress multisites on the VIP Platform.

A VIP environment has a convenience name assigned to it until the environment is ready for a site launch. During the launch process, all instances of the convenience domain in an environment’s database are replaced by the primary domain.

After a site is launched, the assigned primary domain for an environment can be identified by a “Primary” label in the environment’s Domains panel of the VIP Dashboard.

On a WordPress multisite environment, the primary domain is assigned to the main site (ID 1) by launching that network site.
