Allow people to register and automatically create new site

Hello,
I am wondering if there is a way or a plugin that will allow users to register on my website and automatically create a new site for them (without them having to enter an URL).
for example, the first person that registered will be given a site url: http://www.mysite.com/1
second person will be: http://www.mysite.com/2 ... and so on.
I don't really want them to know they are creating a new site, as this may sound difficult and scare people away.
Thanks,

    Hey @Tzer-yen,

    Hope you're doing well today :slight_smile:

    Could please elaborate your request a bit more because I'm not sure what are you trying to accomplish here, why do you want to register new site for your users if they are not aware of that site existing?

    As for the automatically creating new sites without users entering site name/url, this is currently not possible and you would need to make some changes to Pro Sites plugin to make it work that way.

    Best regards,
    Predrag

    I am trying to setup marketpress to allow users to sell their products through the front end (without touching the back-end/dashboard) by creating a link in the homepage that takes them to their product upload page site in the front end. I want to charge them commissions through paypal chained payment, therefore, they need to have their own individual sites. I am afraid that telling them to create a new site will scare them away.

    You can find more info about enabling front end upload of products from here:

    Sorry I was unclear about this. Making something like this possible would require making a custom change to plugin files which unfortunately goes beyond our scope of support so you will need help of a developer to make it work.

    If you need to customize this then you can post a job in our job board where you can hire a developer to assist further:

    Please note that, no WPMU official staff members are allowed to work in the job board.
