    Total newbie here.

    I would appreciate any input on this.

    Kinda trying to maximize my usage of one domain and hosting account... and a little confused.

    I have hosting through hostmonter... which you can create unlimited database files. I'm using one domain name.

    I want to create multiple self hosted wordpress blogs?

    Do I have to get individual hosting for each blog??

    For example, my domain name is website.com

    I would create several database for each wordpress install.
    I would point a unique domain name (eg: dogtrainingblog.com that points to website.com/blognumber1, website.com/blognumber2 etc)

    Is there any advantages to using subfolder/database files under one host account as far as indexing, SEO, instead of it's own hosting account for each domain name?

    What would be the best solution if I want to create multiple wordpress blogs?

    I'm using wordpress mu with domain mapping for this situation.

    Works like a charm :)

    Hey Broco-

    I'm not familiar with wordpress mu, is it as simple as the standard worpress?
