About This Class


i wanted to put together a 'newbie' guide for why you might want to host a website with wordpress and what areas to concentrate on before you pull the trigger on getting hosting and installing the platform.

in this quick overview course

  • why picking a good, fast and reliable host is more important than cost
  • security security security - putting on wordfence should be one of your first plugins
  • using managewp to take care of the 'admin' of running a wordpress site
  • how much blogging do you expect to do?
  • backing up and making sure you have something to restore from
  • testing the site when up for speed
  • investigating some of the latest wordpress host offerings
  • third party applications you can use so you never have to see wordpress
  • issues that can happen when editing templates/caching

i feel this course gives you a good working knowledge of the potential issues you may face when running a wordpress site. i think it's valuable to understand what your getting into.

i hope it helps you! :)
