    Each post on their site when clicked redirects to a new subdomain! How on earth are they doing this, It's so frustrating that I can't figure it out.
    I need to recreate this on my site, obviously they're using wordpress but how are they doing it!can't figure it out.

    This is the website: dailymegabyte[dot]com

    Please help if you can figure it out!

    It's one post per subdomain. So you're telling me they are manually creating new subdomains, using a wordpress multisite probably for every single one of their hundreds of posts? Seems like there has to be an easier way. As that manual process takes way too long...

    Especially for the amount of posts/regularity of posts that process is too long.

    I'm sure there is another way but in reality it only takes an extra 5 minutes to do for each post...

    just so that we're both on the same page..this 5 minute way includes
    - installing a multisite config on the site
    - create a new subdomain
    - post new subdomain on each post

    You could easily automate everything with a little PHP & MySQL knowledge.

    The script would take the article you input, create the sub-domain (depending on the DNS management, likely easily done via API), create the multisite (possibly direct inject the changes into the DB) and then inject the new article to the DB.

    Not saying I could build it personally, but I imagine a talented coder could do it within a couple hours and have everything running on autopilot.

    You need only to find the right coder for you and your budget.

    Valid point.

    BUT I WANT TO KNOW HOW EXACTLY THEY'RE DOING IT SO I CAN DO THAT EXACT SAME THING, because I know a couple of sites that do that..but dailymegabyte[dot]com the easiest to show as an example.

    *SIGH*

    Looks like a Wordpress multisite install that auto creates sub-domains. Would be pretty slick if they would work on boosting page speed.

    I am failing to understand how you expect anyone hear to know exactly how they are doing it?

    Unless one the site owners is an active member on here you will never gain that answer and even if they are its highly unlikely they will share their secret with any of us unless they are selling it as a solution.

    If you are wanting to accomplish the same thing they are simply hire a coder and have it done.

    Yea, you're right. I shouldn't usually post on a forum about this exact topic at all. It is also silly of me to think anyone in this forum would know anything about Wordpress, especially since its a wordpress forum. It probably would've been more logical for me to go and write on Mcdonalds customer support forums because I am sure they would be better versed in this type of thing. Thats sarcasm by the way...because the most logical thing prior to spending any money on anything would be to post on a forum where there are intelligent people (not you) willing to help and see if you can figure it out yourself.

    They are using a wordpress mass user installation ... the hook here is that their POSTING process involves automating account creation as a first step. In my opinion they are using a macro solution to perform these functions. My guess is:

    Facebook Post -> Creates Account On Sub-Domain Of Wordpress MU Installation -> Confirms Account -> Posts The Content

    However, as was suggested by others many combinations of plugins, sql queries, php programming, and custom coded solutions might be employed. I've simply written above how I would accomplish it with considerable automation. There are many better solutions and options, but most of them might require some basic understanding of programming whereas I could write the Macros to do this in about 15 minutes.

    When you see something like this that you feel you really need to employ there are some snooping options you could consider such as viewing their code to try to see what plugins they might be using. It might be possible to easily see a specific working solution. But in the end, don't get so caught up in how they do it. Just find a way for you to do it.

    I seen this type of url structure in Drupal where the article number comes in Urls. It is custom built, if you want such type hire someone who can do or play around php and MySQL to find.

    It is not hard to configure and get such types as you won't need to create subdomains. It is only under url structure that makes automatically when you post.

    What are the benefits of having each post on a unique subdomain?
