So today I was getting ready to abscond with Demo Site 1, when I found that low and behold, someone had done an install!
So I simply used Demo Site 2 for some testing….
Yeah, the site I set up won’t be here long, just testing out themes.
But thanks to whomever used Demo 1 which will probably be cleared and reset tomorrow, unless I see some progress on it.
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!
Just a quick note here to remind folks about the demo sites. All 3 are currently available again. Try one out today.
No clue where to start? Read the Demo Sites How-To page. See link in top menu on the site. There is even a video.
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.
I decided to test out demo site 3 just to make sure I had fixed it. The entire process was somewhere between 15-20 minutes. I picked a random theme, customized it, edited the sample page and created a post.
So go visit that demo site and leave a comment or try out one of the other demo sites yourself!
