Can I use WordPress Multisite to Host Client Sites?

  1. What is a multisite? 00:23
    • WordPress multisite allows you to run an unlimited number of websites under the same WordPress installation.
    • The benefit is that you can update plugins and themes once.
  2. So can you use these for client sites? 01:56
    • Yes! But there are some conditions.
    • Tim only puts certain types of client sites in his multisite. These are the brochure type static websites.
    • For clients that have a lot of traffic or eCommerce, he would use a separate WordPress install.
    • David doesn’t use multisites for clients, but he does use them for the demo themes on his website.
    • You also need to make sure that any plugins that you want to use across sites is multisite compatible.
  3. If you’re unsure about it… 04:20
    • Then just stick with separate installs.
    • If you want to do more research, WPMU DEV has a lot of awesome content and tutorials around multisite.
