I launched a multisite with WPMU-hosting and Pro-sites and it did not go well. I decided to try WP-ultimo on closte.com and it was a dream! Wonderfull plugin.
But the “problem” is that we are expecting close to 1000 sites pretty quick(and growing), which will use woocommerce, so we need do be able to scale horizontally. We decided to set up the hosting with Amazon web services. But we are having some trouble with automatic domain mapping and SSL. Does anyone have any experience with this? Could anyone tell me how I can get this working on AWS? Or if someone are open for hire to set this up? I have already set up the site and set up load balancing.

Hello @WPUltimo-lover .
If i may ask, why are you leaving closte.com?
I’m expecting close to 2000 at launch sites with woo-commerce as the main solution.
Are you suggestion that closte.com will not suffice?
I’ve been trying to figure out what clouding hosting will be best for scaling horizontally without breaking the bank.
Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you.1 year, 3 months ago WPUltimo-loverParticipant
The reason why I flinched on Closte was because when I spoke to Closte, they said Closte was not built to handle that kind of multisite at that size, and that there are limits on the number of mapped domains and SSL certificates. It´s really a shame because Closte was AMAZING! and cheap.
I´m on AWS now with a custom setup with database load balancing. Working ok, but we have reached 100 stores now and it´s starting to get slow. Cost is $500 a month. Think I might need a better AWS server guy…1 year, 3 months ago yuenjianParticipant
Hi from my understanding, setting up at aws would be the best solution for the long run if you expect your network to be keep growing. I’ve read an article of setting up multisite on aws. With USD500 you could setup a powerful aws hosting like:
– 2 EC2 with load balancer
– dedicated Database hosting with fail-over
– to speed up your multisite, you need to setup aws elasticache. this can reduce the load on your server and speed up the loading.

i would suggest you use Cloudways.com if you are considering using aws to scale up your business when needed. i personally using their manage cloud hosting and it been wonderful so far. it fast and reliable, and best of all it is EASY to use. i was able to connect domain auto mapping successfully from opensrs and about ssl i offer free for our clients. then manually add it on cloudways. here is a preview of how to setup wordpress multisite on cloudways.
