    WordPress multi site is now included in the core file of WordPress.

    You'll need to enable multi site after you install WordPress on a web server.

    Once installed, open your wp-config.php using Notepad++ and add this line of code to the file.

    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);

    On top of this, you may want to allow your users to use their own domain rather than an extension of yours which will be a sub domain.

    Here's an excellent plugin for this purpose. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/

    Why don't you install WordPress locally using http://instantwp.com and enable multisite using the code above so you can see how it works first hand.

    Yes, many guides but not as good as first hand experience

    No worries Allan

    That's exactly what it does. Its like creating your own WordPress.com

    You could charge a yearly fee to maintain your hosting costs and also offer domain sales as an affiliate.

    Sorry Alan. The developer doesn't allow it.

    You may have to try Xammp or Wamp.

    Personally, i use a live spare domain for testing. Good luck
