Website factories with Domain Access: why & how?
One of the frequent need of large companies is to be able to provide to their different businesses or brands a website. And while Drupal is a powerful tool to answer to custom or complex needs, it lacks of scalability to creates small and simple websites.
When you face this issue, one of the answer (and probably the one your customer will ask anyway) is: a website factory. The principle is based on a multi site solution.
Domain Access modules suite is a way to build the needed architecture but you have to ask yourself few simple questions before giving it a go:
- Why would Domain Access be the architecture you need? (Pros, cons, comparisons)
- How do we build a website factory using Domain access? (Available modules and their use)
