LifeRay supports Communities (Multi-projects)

Virtual Hosting (Communities)

"Community Virtual Hosting" is an extension/variation of the "friendly URL" functionality of Liferay that allows one or more communities in a single portal instance to be identified by separate and unique "host names" (i.e. DNS entries). End users type in the name of the host they want to visit into the address bar in their browser, and while it APPEARS to the users that they are visiting different web sites, they are in fact being directed to a single web server (the Liferay server). The Liferay server determines which community to present to the user based on the "host name" being passed to it.
