Create a multi-store setup in Magento

Create a multi-store setup in Magento

Provided you do not need an ssl cert for each domain it is relatively straight forward to create a multi-store setup.  If you host with Dx3webs we will do this for you .. simply raise a ticket.

1) configure magento.

In system > manage stores

Add a new website, store and store view for your new site. Remember the code for the website.

2) Create a domain alias for you new domain pointing to your existing domain.

3) Add a little logic to index.php
