Actually for subsites off of mapped sites, you want a multi network plugin.

Thanks! One more thing. Can you recommend me any hosting provider that is good with wordpress multisite? I want to start with a shared hosting first. Then if necessary will upgrade. I am thinking about hostgator. But want to discuss it with with experienced people. I was created a post here wordpress.org/support/topic/… but closed by mods. Thanks! – Sisir Apr 26 '11 at 13:39
HostGator is good for multisite. Avoid WebHostingPad at all costs. – user5582 May 22 '11 at 17:24
