Hello,

I'd like to setup a site w WPML on multiple languages.
I might have some domains bought for that specific language but some are not available, so I should use domains like:
mydomain.com as English
mydomain.es as Spanish
but
mydomain.com/de/
or
de.mydomain.com as German
etc.

Can I set WPML up this way?
AFAIK I can not, so pls. consider it as a feature request!

Thanks!

Hello there,

Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'd be happy to assist you further on this issue.

Regarding

mydomain.com
mydomain.es
mydomain.com/de/

This is not possible at the moment, there is already added as a feature request.

As you can imagine, I can not tell you when this will be implemented. It will certainly take time to properly "solve" the technical details.

When the feature is released, you will find out about our updates.

mydomain.com
mydomain.es
de.mydomain.com/

If the domains are properly set in the server config and the DNS server - then it should not have any issues. This is a server setup things and if this is configured properly WPML should be able to handle this without any issues.

You can view our settings to set up the domains properly, https://wpml.org/2016/04/use-wpml-different-domains-per-language/

Look forward to your reply.

Thanks
