By popular request, we're holding a night all about hosting and maintenance. Rather than have an expert stand-up at the front of the room, we thought it would be more fun to draw on the knowledge and experience of everyone present.

Together we will crowdsource the answers to your questions, learn from each other's experiences and find out stuff we didn't even know we needed to know!

You will be guided through the discussion by the group organisers and we'll cover:

• What things you need to consider about your site when picking a hosting provider

• What hosting providers the group reckons are great or rubbish

• What parts of your site need maintaining

• Handy knowledge and tips to shortcut the pain of maintaining your site

Our group is super friendly and has a huge variety of members of all skill levels. We'll make sure the discussions are inclusive of everyone and there will be a strong emphasis on 'no such thing as a silly question' on the night!

Level: Intermediate +

(We will assume you already know what hosting is and will have made at least one WordPress site of your own)


We've arranged to have the bar staffed in the upstairs rooms so there'll be plenty of chance to chat and mingle. And because we'll be in the festive spirit there will be a swag give-away on the night too.

As always we'll be in the upstairs room of The Famous Royal Navy Volunteer from about 6.30pm and we usually get going about 7pm. You'll be welcomed on arrival by our friendly and knowledgable volunteers where you can grab your name badge and get settled in.

We hope to see you there!
