hi,

i was wondering if you can have many multi sites under wordpress? and is it really secure

at the moment i am going down the road of setting up sub domains under my own domain ?

i have 100 clients and i want them to have their own client area, so security is the main issue i am worried about?

You can install WordPress in network mode (formerly multiuser or multisite) and have a single superadmin control a number of sub-sites.  Subsites can work as subdomains or subdirectories and with some DNS tricks they can have their own domain names too.  This mode is really meant for sites that are related in some way to each other.

But when you say:

i have 100 clients and i want them to have their own client area, so security is the main issue i am worried about?

I'm not totally sure what your concerns are.  If you have 100 clients and want to be able to control their sites to perform updates quickly and easily, then I actually think you should look into services like ManageWP.  It's expensive, but beats WP in network mode for simplicity.
