    I'm looking for the ideal solution to setting up mutiple wordpress blogs under one hosting account/domain name.

    Would installing Wordpress MU be key?

    What are you Internet marketers doing?

    If you are setting the blogs up under one domain name and using subdomain based blogs, WP Mu is certainly the easiest.

    There are also plugins that allow you to use the Mu install and have domain-based blogs on that account as well.

    So Mu is really flexible for any situation where you need to set up multiple blogs on one hosting account/domain.

    Thank you domquar.

    I want each blog to be a different niche blog... could each blog have different plug ins and themes?

    Yes, you can also make the plugins installed on the main blog available to all blogs you install. Then you can activate the ones you want.

    WPMU + domain mapping + wildcard DNS. This configuration makes me easier to update plugins or themes

    Each blog can have their own plugins, theme and domain

    What is a good installer that you can have your plugins pre configured?

    WPManagerDX is a good installer/manager for WP blogs. I don't know if it works with WPMU though.

    I also just ran across the following site. I don't know anything about it other than just reading the site yesterday. It is a monthly subscription, but looks interesting if you manage 100's of blogs.

    Code:

    Hi Broco-

    May I ask which hosting you use? I have hostmonster and apparently they don't offer wildcard dns...

    Any other BH'ers know low fee/reliable hosting for wpmu with wildcard dns?

    Thanks in advance

    +1 for WPMU.. One of the easiest to use platforms, especially for IM.

    You don't need to do wildcard on your host, you do it with your DNS provider ('*' A record). WPMU will do the rest for you.

    With hostgator, doing wildcard is easy, you simply create a subdomain with a '*' for a name, which accomplishes the same task.
