Ever wanted to have multiple blogs using multiple domains but all pointed at just one single WordPress installation, and without using WordPress MU?
It’s now really easy to do! All you need are a few domains, a hosting account, WordPress and the WP-Hive plugin!
What is WP-Hive?
WP Hive is a WordPress Plugin that allows multiple WordPress sites to run on a single installation.
It is intended to be used in a multi-site, single administrator environment and is for the WordPress administrator who manages many sites and is looking for a way to synchronize the plugins, themes, and files for all their sites with ease.
There are many advantages of doing this:
Here’s how to do it, you should be up and running in 2 minutes!
1) Add your domains into cPanel
Login to cPanel, click ‘Parked domains’ and park all your domains so they all point at /public_html/
2) Install WordPress
In cPanel, click ‘Softaculous’, click ‘WordPress’, click ‘Install’, on the next page you want to make sure that WordPress is installing to the main domain of your cPanel account and that the ‘Install folder’ box is blank. This will ensure that WordPress is installed to your /public_html/ folder.
3) Install WP-Hive
4) Configure WP-Hive
Repeat step 4 for every domain you want to add, soon you’ll have hundreds of blogs in your Hive all using the same WordPress installation!
