I hope this is the right place to post, I have read several similar posts but none seem to get at exactly what I want to do.
I have a multisite setup at http://southeastsolarenergy.co.uk/
with lots of other domains parked on top of it
and I have developed http://cap.southeastsolarenergy.co.uk/
which the client would now like to make live
but they want to keep their DNS and make an A record to point to my server's IP address
Can domains be handled in this way for multisites?
What would be the process for testing the A record and making sure the site will work before making the www. A record point to my server?
for example, the client has setup test.bidnacaporiera.org and pointed it to 22.214.171.124 (the IP of the main multisite - the solar website) but when i add test.bidnacaporiera.org as a folder in my multisite and park it on southeastsolarenergy.co.uk I get a "server not found" error when visiting http://test.bidnacapoeria.org/
I do not have a great understanding of A records and DNS
Any help would be really appreciated
