How many domains does WP Engine Allow on managed WordPress hosting plans?

The number of domains depends on the plan, sort of.  Specifically WP Engine counts things based on the number of WordPress installs.

Ancient WordPress History – Usually one WordPress install is done for one domain.  But occassionally, especially in the old days of WordPress, it was not uncommon for a domain to have multiple WordPress installs running in different folders on the same domain.  Sometimes multisite, um sites still do this creating different sections within a single site on a domain.

1 WordPress Install Personal Plan

The entry level ‘Personal Plan’ only allows one domain.

TIP! Need just 2 domains?  It is possible to order or add on a second domain for an extra $14.95 per month.  Both domains will also have the ability to create staging accounts or sub domains. Although these domains will have to split the available number of visits for the Personal plan which is 25,000 visits.  That is not a whole lot of visits and visits are not measured the way Google Analytics measures unique visits so do be very very careful.

Up to 10 WordPress Installs Professional Plan

The Professional Plan allows someone to have as many as 10 domains.  These domains will have to split the available number of visits, which is 100,000 visits.  That averages to 10k visits per domain, which is not very much.  This is probably a fit for people that have one semi popular site and several other sites that get very little traffic.  From our experience we would categorize a site as semi popular if it has about 15-20k pageviews per month although that is a very rough estimate and we can’t be held responsible or liable if you try to use that to gauge your own potential activity.

Up to 25 WordPress Installs – Business Plans

The Business Plan allows someone to have as many as 10 domains.  These domains will have to split the available number of visits, which is 400,000 visits.

Enterprise Plans for everything else +25 or millions of visits

In general, everything else is usually going to fit under an Enterprise Plan, but if you have a specific exception or strange situation, you should talk to WP Engines pre sales people first.
