This month we're looking into web servers for WordPress.
It's the first thing to do when starting out in WordPress and the thing you rely on the most or complain about the most, especially when it goes down and you loose all of your backups.
So this month we'll be talking about starting out with WordPress and choosing a good hosting environment for you.
Whether it is on WordPress.com or on your own private hosting environment, we'll show you how to choose the best one.
Intro to Servers
A brief overview of the types of hosting accounts from WordPress.com to dedicated servers.
Basics After Getting a Server
Wil Brown @limecanvas from Lime Canvas will be giving us a demo on how to install and setup WordPress after you have purchased a hosting environment.
Advanced Server Settings and Environments
Karl Kloppenborg from Crucial Cloud Hosting will be giving a talk on Cloud VPS systems and if we're lucky a demo of their UI.
