1. Have a look at aegir (http://groups.drupal.org/aegir-hosting-system) and combine it with some install profiles

2. You can set the themes per site

3. Have a look at context module, it includes an editor to drag and drop blocks

4. Users are set per site, so no worries

Subject: [development] Allowing users to create easy pre-fab sites?

Is anyone aware of anyone using Drupal as a hosting system.

My goal is to allow users (probably through OG + Domain Access + Domain Access Advanced + ubercart) to purchase a hosting plan and automatically have a domain set up for them.

My users are all in the same industry so the type of nodes they will need to create can be boiled down to a simple 3-4 types.

Basically I want them to be able to:

1. Be assigned a template domain/site with some default pages with some lorem ipsum text (should be easy to accomplish using rules)

2. Be able to switch themes on their domain only (I'm not sure how to do this)

3. It'd be totally awesome if they could modify there themes by dragging and dropping blocks to change the layout of their particular site (again no idea how to do this)

4. Grant other users the ability to edit their site (I'm not sure how to do this without exposing my entire user list to them....)
