I am trying to use for Romanian language and for english. I added the as parked domain, but whatever I change in htacces I get an error.

it looks like this now
# BEGIN WordPress
AddHandler application/x-httpd-ea-php70 .php
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress

What should I change to work ok?

Also, after I finish the website I will need SSL and I was thinking about the Cloudflare CDN services too. Do you know any issues regarding this configuration or it should work fine with WPML? Thanks.

Hi, there are a couple of configurations that need to be observed to set up domains per language. We have an extensive documentation page for this locate here:

Make sure that you have all the configurations explained in the page above set up. Also, take notice that the additional domain cannot be set up as a "parked domain". Its DNS configuration must point directly to the same machine/IP of the other domains configured within WPML.

Let me know if this is what you were looking for.

Hi, thanks, but still didn't resolve the issue.
I made some test with bluehost and wpml and worked with parked domain, WPML said it's not valid, but worked.
I made a clean wordpress install and after that I couldn't set the different domain for languages. I assumed I have to make some changes at htaccess, but I still don't know what changes exactly...
Currently I am having some issues with cloudflare, after I resolve those I will get back to this problem.

No problem. I'll set this thread as "Waiting for Feedback" and as soon as you are ready to pick up on this issue you can re-open the thread.
