Post website vids
on: September 3, 2011, 14:16

I’ve been watching the website building vids and have some questions. I’ve started a blog site in the past and didn’t do any of this cpanel, or FTP stuff and it seems to work fine. I used bluehost but set the whole thing up in the wordpress site which recommended some servers and it was a quick click and install and it was done. I didn’t do any of this stuff the vids are talking about. What is the point of doing all this? I want to do this right, but if this is just some techie knowledge that i don’t necessarily need…

Let me know what you think

Hi Chris – the vids show the manual way of setting up a WordPress site, if your hosting company doesn’t have automatic setup of WordPress. Bluehost does have automatic setup of WordPress sites (which is what you’ve done), so no need to worry about it.

Ok thanks, that’s actually a load off this non-techies mind.

another question, is dreamhost ok to use? I used it for a blog of mine and haven’t seen any problems, but it also gets no traffic and makes no sales. If I have a higher traffic load and make millions of dollars a day(lol) would it still be ok? You may not know the answer, but you’ve been around servers a lot longer than I have….have you heard anything ill about dreamhost?

Hi Chris – man, I really have to figure out a way to catch forum posts that slip through the cracks. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

I haven’t heard anything about dreamhost at all, actually. Your best bet is to look for reviews online (although sometimes it’s hard to pick out the honest reviews from the biased affiliate ones).
