    hi, i've been thinking for a while on this. (i'm not ready yet, but I need information)
    but how can I make my own free blog service (like blogger)

    I need to know everything about it, does some of you have a similar service.
    do I have to watch out on some things, tell me everything.

    I'm going to make it for the middle-east, so I think I will make it kind of arabic and english.
    but I need to know about it, how you make one, what is needed etc.

    please tell me everything you know.

    thanks

    mu.wordpress.org/
    Wordpress MU (Multi User) It's exactly what wordpress.com is running of.

    EDIT: Sonneti, you beat me to it. Why not a ride on the OP's avatar. Better than a camel. :p

    it looks great, wow.
    but is this proffesional to use.. i mean let's say my domain name is bloglblog.com
    and if someone signs up, he or she will get name.bloglblog.com right.
    can you do that with this wordpress.

    I want something similar to Harro's blogger
    Code:
    http://blogze.org/
    your own blogger network.

    ( one more thing, how can you earn from this.)

    I want to ride that too :)

    Yeah you can set up http://name.bloglblog.com you just need to add a * to your dns for wildcard domain names (it's default on some hosting packages)

    You can earn from it by adding your advertising banners to the themes / cpa offer to get a free blog / cpa offer to get a free upgrade of some sort / email submits + there is probably an adsense plugin to split the advertising available.

    EDIT: And oh yeah I'd pay 3k for a ride on that ass :D

    ok, thank you. I'm not going to make it now, but thinking about it to make it really soon.
    thanks for the information.

    (what do you recommend using wordpressmu, or just pay a programmer to make an unique script for me)

    well, I don't know if I want to pay 3k for that :D

    Use WP-mu. Free updates, and pay a programmer for custom add-ons.
    After sonneti and I had our ways with her. You won't.

    There is no limit to the number of users in WP-mu.
    Up to and including WP 2.6 you needed this plugin :
    Code:
    http://wpmudev.org/project/Limit-Users-Per-Blog
    But from WP 2.7 it's a toggle in the admin dashboard, and email activation also seems to put a "limit" to excessive growth :
    Code:
    http://wpmu.org/limit-users-blog/

    I just reported you.

    (so when someone signs up they get a name dot mysite.com)

    how much bandwidht do you recommend. ok thanks

    Why not install it, start reading the documentation and see what you can and cannot do with it ?
    Maybe also try some others ?

    Subdomains:
    Go to the link in the box. Click the highlighted words "readme file" on the first line. When you see the readme file, read what is written at "3." under "Install" :
    Code:
    http://mu.wordpress.org/docs/
    Your hosting provider must also allow on-the-fly domain creation, but remember that some time will pass before the subdomain is propagated. To compensate, you could give new signups immediate access (during propagation) through a URL like
    Code:
    http://www.yourdomain.com/subdomainfoldername/
    Or ALWAYS rewrite in .htaccess from subdomain.domainname.com to domainname.com/subdomainfoldername/.

    Bandwidth:
    Not even you, and your partner(s), know that if it's a new website without traffic yet.
    There are loads of page who have calculations for bandwidth. You know, page size * estimated visitors * 1.5 * reloads * E=MC² * whatever.
    I bet that there are some threads about this right at this forum.
    Best is to go for 100Mbps unmetered bandwidth (try to avoid 10Mbps, or make sure you can upgrade without noticable downtime = VPS).

    ok thanks I have everything I need to know

    I only need to know this: my hosting gives me Sub-domains 30
    so I can have 30 subdomains, this means it's better for me to make the registrations a directorie and not subdomain, right?
    because only 30 can sign up, if I make it subdomains.

    thanks
