When to use Multiple Portals / Parent / Child or create a new DotNetNuke installation
By Lee Sykes
To help you consider which type of portal you should create, or whether you should create a new DotNetNuke installation, we have created a PDF mind map diagram which you can download for free.
We have based this diagram upon you currently having a single DotNetNuke installation with one domain name.
The main points that you need to consider are:
- Do you wish to create several un-related websites with unique domain names?
- Do you wish to create several websites of a related category to the first website?
- How large and complex do you anticipate the website will become?
- What are your hosting options, backup options etc?
The PDF diagram helps you work through each of these points and make a decision on whether or not to create a parent portal, child portal, or create a new separate installation of DotNetNuke. Download the DotNetNuke Portal Considerations PDF diagram
