multiple websites - common base

I need multiple websites, with similar functionality, to share a common base but be customizable for different layouts, features, etc.
All the websites run off data from local pc applications and the data is sync’ed with the web database.

Each site of course has its own unique url (on my server) but they all run off a common database.  Each site will have its own store (or, possibly multiple stores).

Will also need separate admin per website so clients manage their own backend, and admin functionality needs to be configurable per website (i.e., I turn on/off various features, functions...).

What is the best way to structure/configure magento to support something like this?

Magento provides this out of the box. You can check How Multiple Websites & Stores Work Knowledge Base article for details.

There are currently no plans to implement such a feature.
