    Are these going to be running from the same URL? eg: mysite.com/shop and mysite.com/realestate?

    Or are they going to be seperate URL’s, eg: myshop.com and myrealestate.com?

    There’s really two options.

    First, you can create a HTML splash page, and do two separate WordPress installations in the sub-folders, and run them independantly. That will give you two seperate sites that don’t rely on each other in any way. You can use separate databases, and everything is kept to itself. The good thing is if something goes wrong with one site, the other site will keep on functioning. The bad part is that the sites won’t share anything at all.

    Second, you can create a Network, and have your main site with the splash page, and two extra sites, one for each section. This will let you use different themese and have different settings on each site, but the sites will be run from the saem code-base and database so everything is encapsulated nicely. You can also share users between sites, so someone that registeres for the shp can also use that login on the real estate site. The only downside to doing it this way is that it’s a little more set up work, and you do have to run off a single database, but if it was me, this is the way that I’d go.
