In fact, it is very popular on the web. It is related with blogs and thus it allows its users to gain blog experience, as this is the main function of the WordPress. Basically it is used as a blogging tool but its developers all over the world increases its functions, created very typical and complicated websites and make it grew as a system used to manage the content. If you’re hosting plan which offers the required disk space and bandwidth capacity then it can host a network of blogs and with one admin account all the blogs can be administrated. Thus, we can say it is the best option to run number of web sites on the same hosting account.

WordPress MU hosting

If you want to host multiple sites by using WordPress then you need to install them separately but here comes WordPress 3.0 version which allows you to host multiple websites which is referred to as a network of websites because here WordPress MU codebases was merged into core. WordPress MU is the multi-user version of WordPress. This is also good news for those who are having different domains and their multiple blogs are hosted on them. In one install if all the blogs are combined then it not only saves the disk space but also makes upgrade and maintenance easy. Actually WordPress 3.0 version already contain this feature but to use it you have to turn it on ,it will not done by default.

WordPress 3.0 allows you to host multiple sites, but how…

Now see how WordPress 3.0 allows you to host multiple sites, for this first of all you need to back up your current WordPress database. Then add the line “define (‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true); into your wp-config.php file. Now next log in to the admin area and click on “Tools” button then “Network” button. Now select the “Sub-directories” option. After this submit the form (leave the other options as it is because they are selected by default), and then follow the instructions given on the next page. First log out and then log in again to come back. You see that now you have a “Superadmin” panel at the top of your WordPress admin menu. Now add your new site by clicking “Superadmin” tab and then select “Sites” option under this tab. In the next step you will test that your new site is working or not. And it is good to see that your new WordPress site is running in a subdirectory.

But there is one thing to be consider, if you would like your new WordPress site to be located at an entirely different domain instead of this, then what is required to do…In that case, after following the above steps you will download the domain mapping plugin and follow the instructions of installation. Then log out and log in again and update “Superadmin” select Domain Mapping with your server’s IP address and then go to “Superadmin” tab and select domain i.e. Domains to link up a domain with a site ID and in the last step you can test your new domain to finish the process.
