Workgroup: Multisite 
New work group Help Needed

Research multisite features of other frameworks and possible ways of implementing that in django-cms 

Document multisite strategy with Divio, The old way to do multisite was to use a multisite plugin and have all sites in one single instance. Divio has a new, improved way that scales better, by sharing one single database across multiple instances. Each instance uses the same code repository. The site id is controlled via an env var in every instance. This new approach does not require any multisite addons / code, which reduces complexity a lot.
