Tell us what you are trying to do?
Get multiple domains working

Is there any documentation that you are following?

Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?
hidden link

hidden link (setup as pointer to .nl)
hidden link (setup as alias for .nl to test if works)

I had a chat with Laura but I cannot reply on the ticket anymore.

I'm trying to get the setup working, inside WPML the domains are validated.

She said the domains have a 301 redirect, how can I fix this? I always thought the domain pointer was enough but can't get it working.

I will be helping you with this.

In general, the following server setup must support the following actions in order for then, the WPML domains-per-language to work:

1. Attempt to display the contents of the license.txt file from all of your domains without the URL changing the domain:
hidden link
hidden link
hidden link

2. If you are using a kind of pagebuilder then additionally you should be able to login to the dashboard of each domain:
hidden link
hidden link
hidden link

Normally, domains are not setup as pointers. You need to have your server support setup the appropriate dns records so that you meet these requirements. Each server calls this kind of setup by their own names. In GoDaddy, for example, they are called alias domains. I have seen in others that they may be called parked-domains.

I hope this helps you.
