Hello Mike,

Thanks for the question about the WordPress installation limits. Yes, you install multiple wordpress installations using subdomains. For example,,, etc. If you are a customer of InMotion, check out Installing Wordpress with Softaculous. It would make the installations much easier .

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.
