    Hey everyone.
    I assume you all know websites like wordpres, weebly, etc.. who offer you to create a website for free on thier hosts.
    The thing I'm curious about is how do they make it work?

    Does every user gets his own installation? (If yes - I'm wondering how can they afford this as each installation is more then 10MB)

    or does it work something like that :
    A single file named article.php that handles all article requests.
    Lets take this URL for an exmaple : myuser.myweb.domain/articles/10452-Welcome-To-My-Website

    When someone enters this URL, article.php get the content and the ID of the website and echos
    back an article.

    This method sounds nice, the thing is, lets say I have over 5K hosted users in my website. Can
    a single file handle all of this traffic?

    Thanks in advance :)
