Which is easier:
To bring an individual self-hosted WP blog (own domain) into a Multi-site installation
To break out an individual self-hosted blog (own domain) out of a multi-site installation??
Ideally, I would like all my sites together in a multi-site installation, but I'm running into hosting issues because of heavy traffic on the main site -- in the order of 16,000+ visitors a day, according to CPanel AWstats.
I'm getting away with a shared hosting plan so far, but the next step up is a dedicated server with big $$$$$$'s.
So, for setting up a new blog on its own domain, I'm wondering whether to risk starting it in the same installation as the main site or to put it on a separate installation in a separate hosting plan, with the possibility of combining the blogs when I have to actually pay for dedicated hosting.
Not sure I'm making myself clear, but the limits on shared hosting is the issue. I'm in danger of being limited in processor usage.
Basically, I'm trying to stave off having to pay for a dedicated server any sooner than necessary, and I'm wondering whether I have any options.
If I install a new blog and it generated more traffic, do I have a chance to break it out into a separate installation?
If I create a new blog in a separate installation, can I combine the two blogs later?
What issues would I run into?
(Please forgive me if the question sounds stupid.)
