Create Child Site Custom Module

I have posted few questions on a different thread for which no one has responded yet. So trying to get atleast one important question answered.

Wish to give the ability for authenticated user to create child websites. Is it possible to have this as a custom module. If so which are the projects I need to look into. Is there an easy way to get this functionailty? Even if I could get simple functionality of giving the following options to the authenticated user to input the below and allow him to click a button to create a child website would be good enough.

Host Name : www.childsitename.com
skin : dropdownlist of skins
CreateChildsite Button

Re: Create Child Site Custom Module

Hi,

Please understand I am very busy with my own work, I cannot possibly answer all questions or my own productivity will grind to a halt.

There is not currently a system for non admin users to easily provision new sites. It is a planned feature listed on my Road Map but it will not be a free included feature, it will be a paid add on feature and it will support ecommerce so that users can purchase and self provision hosted sites. I have a plan for it for folder based sites, but I don't know of any way to automatically create new DNS host name records as this would vary by where the DNS server is hosted and whether it exposes any web service for provisioning DNS host names so I will only be able to expose events that other developers can possibly use to integrate with their own system for provisioning DNS host names.

Best,

Joe
