    Yes WPMU is what you need. Regular Wordpress 3.0 or higher now gives you the ability to create multiple sites WPMU style.

    Yes, wordpress 3 gives you the ability to do that. Though you need to enable multisite after you've installed WP 3 on your hosting account.

    That is not enough. You should go to your hosting account reps so that they can setup a wildcard domain for you. Without that, you cannot use WP subdomain future automatically.

    Or if he has his own server:

    Edit ServerAlias for your domain in your httpd.conf file by adding a * in front of your domain name. example: *.yourdomain.com

    Thanks for making it exact. Actually, yours and mine should be combined for the full answer.

    easiest way to do wildcard domains is go to cPanel, subdomains, and create a new subdomain. Put * in the box and click the button to create the subdomain. It should automatically do it for you.

    Works for me every time.
