    Is it possible to install _one_ WordPress installation to manage several websites.

    Please let me know anything about this?

    - Can I run several domains in one installment?
    - Must the sites be in webhosting account or can I have Several webhosting accounts?
    - Can the diffrent domains have diffrent look and plugins?

    I will be looking for some great feedback.

    Thanks.

    The first part is not too hard:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network

    That will create blogs in virtual subdomains or subfolder that you have to point to their domain names.

    Plugins can be activated 'network' and per individual blog.
    The same goes for themes.

    Can I run several domains in one installment?

    You can do this, too, with donncha and wpmuguru's Domain Mapping Plugin. You'll need your WP install to be in the root directory; a subdirectory won't work.

    Must the sites be in webhosting account or can I have Several webhosting accounts?

    Usually they're on one server, under one hostign account, with the WordPress files and user uploads in that account's server directories, and all the blog content in the database.

  4. - Can the diffrent domains have diffrent look and plugins?

    Yes, though the theme & plugin folders are shared.

    Thanks all of you to give me some valuable suggestion. Regarding the content if they are different for each theme; Is there would be any problem?

    Why would that be? Or what differences are you thinking about?

    I am just thinking that each of my blog will contain different content. There will be no similarities of the content for each of the site. Would i can be controlled. Will be there different DB or only one DB.

  8. Each site is independent of the other.
