Default CMS issues...

I suppose this is a variation of a familiar question. FWIW, I do have a site that uses Joomla for part of it, but in no way would I profess to be a maven; I'm very much a novice here!

So to try and create an analogy: picture a site that relates to, say, a country or geographical area. It doesn't use CMS; nor does it need to. If the site has a domain somecountry.com I'd like to create a number of subdomains of this. To continue the analogy, let's suppose that each of these subdomains relates to a town or city in that country.

We might then have URLs such as westport.somecountry.com, eastport.somecountry.com and so on. I want each of these subdomains to have their own admin person and each is entirely self-contained. Indeed, none of them is even aware of the existence of the others. (The analogy isn't a perefct one!)

So the main domain doesn't need to use CMS, but each subdomain does.

The question: is there a way to use a single installation of a CMS to cover all these subdomains? Given that there could be a considerable number of them, it would seem somewhat OTT if it was necessary to have a complete and separate installation in each of the subdomains.

Of course, it may be that folk are already wearily shaking their heads and that I've missed something blindingly obvious. I can take any amount of abuse and opprobrium, so don't hold back, OK??
