Does your website always go down? Looking for a server to support the amount of traffic you have?

Vibewire and Wordpress Sydney are joining together to bring you this FREE workshop on choosing the best server.

Choosing an appropriate server is the first thing to do when starting out in Wordpress. It can be the thing you rely on the most or complain about the most, especially if it goes down and you lose all of your backups.

Whether it is on WordPress.com or on your own private hosting envvironment, we'll show you how to choose the best one and perhaps even give away a hosting account or two on the night.

    I found it far too technical. There was an assumption of basic programming literacy so use of code and tech jargon was high and I found that I could not follow the workshop. I need to set up my own Wordpress website and I was hoping that the session would be an introduction to the backend, from setup, giving an idea of how to create a working site thats does what you want. Instead the session delved into very complex technical aspects of the setup. I felt that the speakers, while enthusiastic, lacked a clear understanding of the level of knowledge in the room. They also assumed that we would want to learn those technical aspects - I hope to contract them out as I think that there are some things best left to an IT professional! I only want to understand the back end of wordpress, not the underlying coding. Perhaps it was just me thinking these things - maybe everyone else was more conversant with tech speak... I suppose I could have misjudged the point of the session.

      Hi Andrew, I can understand why you found it difficult to follow. I do agree that you had to have a little more wordpress knowledge than a beginner. If you need any help feel free to email me. Holly
