Joomla similar sites

I want to create two Joomla sites. Both sites will have exactly the same structure but different design (different templates).

Contents will be specific for each sites, however we would like to have both domains on single server and single Joomla installation (single database).

Is this possible ?

    What is the purpose of sharing the single database?

    Yes it's easy to do what you say but I'm curious about the question before I reply more.

    We would like to create a directory with a rating system. This directory could be for example for restaurants. Then, when site is working we would like the same for another area, for example for opera theaters.

    We would like two different sites (two different designs, two different domains, etc...) but the same user credentials and also the same joomla system so if we make an improvement on the directory we shouldn't have to do this improvement on two Joomla systems, but on a single system.

    Thank you.

    I didn't know there are a lot of Joomla extensions for multi-site on one installation of Joomla. This is excellent !!
