This article explains how to setup multiple sites on a single Sitecore instance. The assumption behind this procedure is that each site is required to have its own domain name.


1. Setup either DNS entries or your HOSTS File to all point to the IP address of the web server.

Sample HOSTS File       AcmeSitecore       AcmeSales       AcmeTechSupport

2. Within IIS, setup the bindings for your site to include the domain name of each site.

3. Within the <sites> section of your web.config file, map each site to the desired Sitecore path.

Sample web.config settings'
    <site name="ACME Sales" hostName="AcmeSales" virtualFolder="/" physicalFolder="/" rootPath="/sitecore/content/Sales" . . . />
    <site name="ACME Tech Support" hostName="AcmeTechSupport" virtualFolder="/" physicalFolder="/" rootPath="/sitecore/content/TechSupport" . . . />
    <site name="ACME Main Site" hostName="AcmeSitecore" virtualFolder="/" physicalFolder="/" rootPath="/sitecore/content" . . . />
. . .
