Educational Website Network

Goal:

Bring easy to build website to the University of North Carolina.

Solution:

In 2009 I built the Web.unc.edu WordPress Multisite Network.  What started out with a single class and a single site has grown to over 4500 sites and 18,000 users.  It has replaced the main campus website solution and now has a full time support staff of 5 people.

This network is protected by multiple security plugins, backed up offsite, optimized across four servers, cached for speed, has over 100 themes and dozens and dozens of plugins to meet the educational community at UNC Chapel Hill.

It is being used for professional portfolios, department/unit websites, special events, databases, classrooms, and many other things.

We have a fabulous support forum (one of the sites on our network).
