  • Hi,
    you explained how to add a store but you added a website too. Well, the new web site may have a different domain name. Which are the settings in my siteadmin / multisite panel for the new site?

    Thanks in advance.

    • Hi Pier,

      A new site with a new domain name would have it’s own, new Magento installation on that domain, as if it was a brand new install.

  • Sorry, are we speaking about the same issue? So, you are saying I can’t redirect a different domain name to a single magento installation?

    How about this:

    Where am I wrong?

    Thanks a lot for your reply.

    • Hi Pier,

      My apologies, I misunderstood the question. This should be possible, yes, but will require a more detailed explanation than we can give here. Can you open a ticket with the request, with our support team? Our level 2 team should be able to help you get this set up.

    • hello, pier

      how much you charge me for this setup magento multi stores.??

      I can install any theme in magento sub shop?

      • Hello Francisco,

        We would not be able to set this up for you, as there are too many variables involved that would need to be chosen and entered by you. Any Magento theme should work, as well, provided you have it uploaded and installed in Magento.

      • Hi Francisco,
        you can contact me at

        Yes, you can install any theme per each sub shop: website, store or store view. Indeed you can choose different theme for a specific language (i.e. Arabian) in the same store.
