How to set multiple domain and backend access


Hi Team,

I have questions regarding multi-domain.

We need to set up multiple domains (not epi multisite).

a)how to set up multiple domains for the epi site?


1.domain 1 -(site,backend)

2.domain 2 -(site only)

b)Need to restrict the domain2 site epi backend access. How to restrict that access?

c)Is there any license update need for this multi-domain?

Advance thanks,

Hi Karyan,

You can set up multiple hosts on the same site within the Episerver admin > Config tab > Manage Websites. Click on the site you want to manage your hosts for and add any domains you need - you don't need an additional license to add hosts to a site, only to create new sites. As shown below, you can also use a wildcard to map any unmapped domain to a given site.

To restrict CMS access to a single domain (for example 'alloy.edit') you can use rewrite rules inside your web.config like this:

    <rule name="Restrict CMS access" stopProcessing="true">
      <match url="^episerver/" />
        <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^alloy.edit$" negate="true" />
      <action type="CustomResponse" statusCode="404" statusReason="Not Found" statusDescription="Not Found" />
