I have a client who operates a large (50+ sites) multisite/network installation of WordPress. When this network was first set up, the only solution available to map domains to sites in the network was the WordPress MU Domain Mapping plugin, so that’s what they’ve been using for many years now. It’s kind of clunky, but it works.
I have a WordPress Multisite network. I’d like to have my main site on a seperate domain to my subdomains.
i am new to wordpress multi-site. We are planning to have PaaS.
I’m considering setting up a WP multisite network. It would seem to fit my situation perfectly. There’s one thing I still need to find out about domain mapping.

I am trying to do this on a standalone WP installation (not multisite). What I am trying to achieve is:
I want to work with WordPress multisite, but I want to be able to use my own names. For example my main site is called
example.com. If I want to add a new site to my multisite network it’s gonna be called
newsite.example.com. I want it to be
example. Is there a way to achieve this?
Using WP 4.5.2
I’m not sure if I phrased this question correctly…
