Today I was a bit bored so I decided to fire up Demo Site 2. It Took me a mere 10 minutes to set up a viable web site!
I still can not believe no one is at least using these demo sites for some testing of plugins, etc.
But then again, I guess humans will always be stupid. No offense folks, but this WordPress stuff is so easy a cat could do it….if not distracted by a squirrel….
That is all…
There are multiple links that are searchable on a how to video or two and even a link in the top of the site menu describing how to use the demo sites.
Both demo sites have the very latest WordPress ready to setup, so follow the instructions and have fun!
Walks away shaking head knowing that I am beating a dead horse…but….What the hell!
I have been considering this upgrade for over a year and this weekend I sat down and moved all sites onto the latest version of Debian Linux 8.4.
The move took most of the day Sunday and Monday, (so much for having a holiday), and all seems to have gone quite well. If anyone finds any issues please let me know.
This site offers free WordPress hosting with virtually no restrictions other than the fact that there are some system limitations. Let’s face it folks, this isn’t here to help folks setup a site that gets a bazillion hits per day, but if you have an idea for a site that would get 50-100 visitors per day, this system will work for you.
Now let’s move on to those Demo Sites, there are 3 of them listed here, there is a How-To which all but spoon feeds you how to set things up and if you have read the articles, you know I can host any domain, even if it isn’t a subdomain type website. Whatever.com will run here, just as easily as as whatever.yourfreewordpres.com. So why are people not trying out the Demo Sites or asking for a site hosting? I actually don’t have a damned clue!
Perhaps you are uncertain about hidden costs? There are none, zero,zilch nada, zip, yeah, free.
Perhaps you think there is a hidden agenda here? Sorry, I just want to help folks learn how to run a site or simply provide hosting to your small site.
Perhaps you think this is some sort of evil hacking scheme? Uh, no, I can simply get by with setting up virtual servers and doing some routing. No evil geniuses at HQ here.
So those questions being answered, you have to ask yourself one question, “Do I want to try this stuff out?”. If the answer is yes, try out a demo site! There are no sign-ups, no logins, other than to the Demo Server itself, and no reason not to give it a try!
Today’s little video was shot on a tablet to show folks just how easy it is to setup one of the 3 demo sites we have available here. If I can run a setup on a tablet anyone should be able to run an install.
It really is quite easy, and I will also be adding the video below to the Demo Sites How-To page later today.
There is one minor error in the video where I mention a weak email, that should be “password”. But I do not do multiple takes! Not Hollywood here folks.
