Hi, Have someone implemented the MultiSite feature in the non-commercial version of Composite C1? Is there any documentation about this?

I have a multi site running on two different domains, using the same set of datatypes and templates, but at runtime im changing which actual "physical" template-files are going to be used for rendering so the two sites doesn't look the same at all.

What do you need to know?

Do you have the OpenSource version of Composite C1?


We are interested in have the same BackEnd managing several portals / different domains (three different websites), and we couldn't find documentation about how this is configured in Composite C1.

There is only one version, the open source version... the stuff you get by paying is support from Composite, but its still the same software as you can download from CodePlex.

Urls for several sites are configured through the Url Confiruation folder and Hostname Bindings in System perspective as described here

Great. Do you know if it is possible to have configured in different Hostname Bindings specific pages?   this question goes to know if it is possible to use the same backend administrative tool for different websites  &   and having on each of them a differente   DEFAULT page and structure.

sure! that's like the sole purpose of hostname binding... to specify which page in content perspective that correspond to which hostname.

Just as a side note: Composite C1 has one common code base for the open source version and the commercially licensed/supported version - we do not cripple what we give to our open source community ;-)

We have a few commercial extensions - you can choose them on both the open source and commercial licenses. More info at
