how multidomains works with Composer?

I found info that Composr support multidomains.
Company what I work for have around 5 different domains(companies) but leayout of pages is the same. 
I'm intrested if is possible to control all of them with this CMS from one place?

Hi,

First, I would question why exactly you want to have 1 system controlling 5 different companies. If any of those companies want some different configuration, or set of addons, or admins completely isolated from each other that can't find out about the companies, you are much better off just creating separate installs.
I don't see a good reason not to have separate installs honestly, it's not a lot of burden to keep them patched as long as you have at least some basic amount of income coming from each client.

However, if it's just different subdivisions of a company, with the same staff managing each site, that makes more sense. We do it here, compo.sr and ocproducts.com run the same install, and we just specify that our ocproducts zone runs on ocproducts.com in that zone's settings. The separate domains are pointed to the same hosting location by Apache and Composr handles the rest.

Yes.
Similar to your situation.
One organisation (group of companies) hold 5 domains (for different companies, on future different language - country domains). It's not client. Everything will be managed by same people (at moment me). I don't want to run from one install to another one. Want to keep this as simple as possible. Everything will be one the same server too.

So you said is possible? I assume this need at last root access to server (so I can't test this on shared hosting)?

Yep, it's pretty much trivial. You just add a zone from Admin Zone > Structure > Zones > Add, and specify the domain name. Then just make sure the domain is pointing to the same hosting account. That's possible in something like cPanel, I think maybe they call it "addon domains" but I can't remember exactly.
