What this module does?
It allows you to run multiple sites with different domains run from single install, using same database. While you can easily do "subsites" like www.domain.com/campaign/, this allows you to turn that into www.campaign.com. This is nice stuff, when you have multiple simple sites, that all belong to same organisation and same people maintain.
How to use it?
Just create page with name like www.campaigndomain.com under your homepage, then edit this module through modules menu and add same domain there. If your domain resolves to same place where your main domain, it should just work. Please notice that if you have editing rights, it allows you to browse the site from www.olddomain.com/www.campaigndomain.com/, but users with no editing rights are redirected to www.campaigndomain.com (this is because session cookie is otherwise lost).
Not any real problems, at least yet known. Of course think twice when deciding should the site have own install instead of this. There are few benefits, like getting data from other sites, one admin view for all sites etc... but it can easily get out of the hands: number of templates, fields etc.. It is harder to maintain for sure.
Isn't there multisite support in core?
Yes, kind of. It is very different from this. It allows you to run multiple pw-installations with shared core files (/wire/ folder). This is totally different: this is single pw-installation which has multiple sites running from different domains.
This module's files should be placed in /site/modules/Multisite/
