Do you support wordpress mu? How to install it?

Yes, it is fully supported.

Here is a brief tutorial on how to install Wordpress MU on your account:

1. Install WordPress 3.0 to the root of your public_html directory. It has to be at the root or the multi-site feature won't work.
2. Contact our staff via Help Desk ticket to create wildcard subdomain for you.
3. Activate multi-site in your WordPress 3.0 install. This involves editing wp-config.php a couple of times. You need to use the subdomain, not the subdirectory, option.
4. Create a test blog in the WordPress 3.0 Superadmin > Sites panel. It should show up as subdomain.yourdomain.com. Test the blog to make sure everything is working correctly at this point.
5. Install the WordPress MU Domain Mapping plugin ( http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/ ). Follow the installation and configuration instructions in the readme.
6. Create blogs for each of the sites you want to host at separate domains. For example, one mywebsite1.maindomain.com.
7. Park each of your domain names at your main site. You can do this easily in cPanel. If you've been using the domains as add-on domains, then you need to delete the add-on domains first, then create the parked domains. The domains that you wish to park must be pointed to our nameservers.
8. Go to Superadmin > domains, and map the sites to the new domain. It should be as easy as adding site id 1 maps to mywebsite1.com.
