What is WordPress Multisite
WordPress Multisite, also known as WordPress Multi-User (WPMU), is a popular WordPress feature using which you can create and manage multiple websites using a single WordPress installation. This feature has been around since WordPress 3.0 and allows you to easily update and control your websites’ plugins from a single dashboard.
WordPress Multisite Features:
- WordPress Multisite features are handy for website admins who want to run a network of websites or blogs using a single installation. Such multisite networks are used in corporate websites, schools, news media, and many more.
- You can either create a network of subdomains (https://new-site.temp.com) or directories (https://temp.com/new-site) to manage your websites easily.
- WordPress Multisite empowers two types of admins: Super Admin and Regular Admin. Super admins can install and activate plugins or themes across all websites, set up new websites, and handle users. On the other hand, regular admins can only make changes to the content of their respective websites.
