I'm new on Magento and in this time I'm studying how build an e-commerce site with Magento CE.

I read some guides and wiki, but there is a thing I don't understand. When we say that magento can manage the multi site, and multi domain in configuration we put the name and domain for all the stores domain.

I ask you, Can I create the structure of all magento sites in one magento installation based on different domain name?

For example:

  1. site one: italian language and domain .it;
  2. site two: english language and domain .uk;
  3. site three: french language and domain .fr;
  4. site .... etc.

Please answer my question it's very important for me and if possible please tell me the correct way to do it.

Sure you can set this up. You simply need to have one store-view for each domain. These can be setup under System->Manage Stores.

I am not sure 100% of your set-up but you can have one website, one store and then one store-view for each domain.

Then under System->Configuration->Web you can assign each store view with it's own url using the drop down in the left hand side to change store view.
