    Multiple brands - what are the options ?


    We are converting an existing site to Umbraco 4 that currently handles its content based on the host.

    So has the same layout but different content/logos etc than

    Does Umbraco allow for this senario ?

    There are n brands (i.e. we keep adding new ones and removing old) so any solution has to be scalable.

    The Code behind takes care of the logos and css and that works in Umbraco its jsut the content that will have to be different per host.

    I was expecting to have to do complicated internal coding but instead I find the content hostnames option works perfectly for my requirements.

    create site A add all required content, copy and paste (love that functionality in Umbraco)

    rename and edit content as required,


    then right click each site level content and add a host name

    make sure iis points those host names to Umbraco and your host file is up to date.

    job done !

    visting siteA.local will 

    resolve the name to your local IP address from teh hosts file

    IIS will redirect it to the Umbraco site

    the Umbraco site will only return the site with that host name.
