I have multiple WordPress websites, they all have their own domain and are standalone. Is there an advantage of using multisite? Or is my current setup good?


I'll just put the main pros/cons that quickly came to my mind here. This list is not extensive. For some more info on MS have a look at at the Codex.

Pro Multisite

  • Maintain WordPress/Plugins/Themes just once. If you upgrade everything is upgraded at once
  • Easily share content between sites. (e.g switch to blog)
  • User Accounts can be cross-site
  • Sites are totally independent

Contra Multisite

  • You can't update WordPress/Plugins/Themes separately
  • Some plugins do not work properly on MS
  • Adds some complexity on top of everything
  • When something breaks it might break everything all at once
