I was wondering if anyone had experience with a wordpress multi-site install having over 100 sites?
My company is looking into creating a system that will have around 130 sites install in 1 multi-site. There maybe even more added in the future. We do have multi-site running now for some conference and member sites but are limited to about 15 per install.
Do you think having over 100 sites on a multi-site safe?
Do you know if performance will be an issue?
If you can share any info you might have regarding this topic that would be great.
@chad– Multisite can host millions (literally) of sites. Two examples are WordPress.com (50+ million) and edublogs.org (3+ million).
Performance is not going to be an issue of WordPress itself, but how you configure your server, the power of your server and your overall traffic. The higher the traffic, the more powerful the server required… but this is also the same with a single site.
I understand wordpress.com is a good example of multi-site but i also know Automatic is behind it. I checked out Edublogs.org but it seemed to me that every sign up was a multi-site install. I have read the WPMUdev article and it seems that it shouldn’t be a problem.
Steve any suggestions on a host for something like this?
