Multiple blogs / domains - one installation



6:46 pm on Nov 18, 2011 (gmt 0)

What is the best software choice for running multiple blogs / domains from one installation (like Wordpress, TypePad, MovableType etc). Not exactly the same blog with multiple domains, but different blog / content / layout, for every domain, but from one CMS installation.

Thank you.

Wordpress works for multiple blogs, but it's a bit complicated for multiple domains

Drupal is the easiest I've used. Multiple domain support (called multisite) is built in and it's dead easy. You'll want to keep the number of modules to a minimum and standardized across all blogs, though, otherwise maintenance can get to be a headache (module needs updating for one blog, but the update is incompatible with a module that another blog needs = bad)
