Managing multiple websites in one easy CMS solution
To put it simply, WordPress Multisite allows you to create a network of various different websites.
Then you can conveniently access them all from a singular WordPress dashboard.
Your multisite network can be managed by one super admin or you can give access to a team of people to manage each individual website within the network.
All websites within your multisite network share the same theme and any active plugins. This makes it a great solution if you have a group of websites which are somehow related to each other.
