I've decided on Plone as a Python CMS for several large but low traffic websites. The sites are basically unrelated to each other but are used for running a single area of my business.
Looking at Plone's website it states that multiple sites can be run from a single instance of Plone, which I would prefer, to keep memory usage to a minimum on my hosting.
It's not clear from Webfactions software documentation how to do this so I was just wondering if anyone out there could explain it to me like a 5 year old :)

This isn't covered in the WebFaction Documentation because there isn't anything webfaction-specific about how to serve multiple sites. Plone runs on Zope, and the Zope documentation covers Virtual Hosting in detail. This should work out-of-the-box on WebFaction, but you will want to read the documentation in its entirety and understand everything exposed there about how virtual hosting works.
Once your Virtual Host Monster is set up according to the documentation, you just attach multiple domains to your website record hosting the application in the WebFaction Control Panel. Then all of those domains will arrive at your Plone application, and be handled as per the Zope virtual host monster configuration.
Hope that helps!
