    I've found some posts in the forums regarding this issue, but I don't think I've quite found the answer I need yet.

    We have a potential client that has 5 separate domains that we would be redesigning and putting on Sitefinity.  The domains all live under the same login.

    Is it possible to have a single installation of Sitefinity, where the websites for 5 unique domains can live in harmony?  This would be ideal so that the client only has to login one place to make website updates, and some content could even be shared between the sites.

    Is there any kind of recommended solution for people who have wanted something like this in the past?

    Hi Orion,

    You can use the provider mode, so each website will use different provider for Pages, Content etc. Say you have website1, website2, website3. You could create three providers for Events ( for example) - website1, website2, website3. This will allow you to maintain the websites from one instance and even using a single data base if necessary. Of course the better option is using a separate database for each website. You can gather more information about the provider model at

    Purpose of the Provider Model Design Pattern
