  • Sure, you can have more than 500 sites in a multisite. You can even have more than 10000. I don’t know if it will work on a shared hosting though, you might need a VPS or a server. Check if your hosting has a limit on the database table count.

    What do you mean how to manage 500 sites? Manage what about them?

    You can create any number of WordPress Website provided you are using a server (Hosting) with that particular needs. A dedicated Server though is recomended for this huge need !

    Also what do mean to say when you say manage 500 websites ? Pease elaborate more on it.

    Yes, you can create more than 500 sites with WP multisite.

    Yes WP multsite creates about 10 database tables per subsite (more if you have plugins that create tables.

    No, more tables does not increase database load. You just need to make sure you have a database that can handle that many tables. For example mysql with myisam storage has issues with large number of tables; mysql with innodb does not.

    Database load depends on the load on WP and other factors (e.g. caching plugins reduce db load). Generally speaking the database load is the same for a WP single site and WP multisite site if the number of requests are the same (and similar architecture/plugins).
