This is more of a DirectAdmin / SimpleHelix question, trying to get advice on Multi Store layouts.

Is this possible on a shared hosting account using the DirectAdmin control panel / environment?

- 1 main store, 2 or 3 sub stores in a multi website / store configuration on 1 shared hosting account. Using 1 dedicated IP, and 1 SSL certificate (the main store would use the SSL for checkout, the others would have checkout disabled) These can be setup in a sub domain format, or whatever hierarchy is required to work.

I know Magento can handle this, I am trying to find out if a shared hosting environment can handle it in 1 account.

I really hope someone has some info on this, and if it is not possible, recommendations would be very appreciated!
