As Usual It Boggles My Mind That Only One Person Has Ever Tried The Demo Sites!

Question-MarkThis 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!

The about page has been updated!

NewsIf you are interested in a free WordPress Site but want your own domain name that can easily be done!

So please read the revised About page on the menu at the top of the site, then register and contact me!

I do suggest trying out the demo sites first to make sure your site will work here.

So I am still looking for help with the Trump2016 site.

screen-grab-Trump2016-aug16thSo as a few people in the world may be aware of (that being the lazy 13 or so folks who dropped by yesterday, but did nothing), I did set up a Trump 2016 site on the server here.

I will once again reiterate that I DO NOT HAVE THE TIME TO maintain this site! That means that someone needs to step up to the plate and do the hour or so a day to keep the site fresh, post videos, etc…

I have checked out the “Donald’s” official site, and aside from links for donations and collecting emails, the site I have created is actually better. So, some take the hand-off here and run with the goddamned ball!

I’ll be here to help and I will give advice, but some out there must like Trump enough to want to spend time on this! Hey, if there was money involved I would be all over the opportunity, but as it is, it is a great opportunity to build a site and have some fun all while pissing off the liberals. So click here to begin.

Okay Geniuses make it work! Testing a plugin…need some help.

Update 07/15/2015: Last night after doing a bit of research on WordPress.Org I discovered that I needed to have mod-rewrite loaded in my apache configuration so my links would work properly. That has pretty much fixed all issues with this plugin.

So for the last several day I have been trying something that comes close to the vLot software but using WordPress. So far this is the closest thing I have found and it is a plugin called Car Demon.

The basics are nice, but as yet I don’t see an easy way to make this the default way of displaying the WP site…..

So if anyone wants to play….

So log your asses in, make this work and then tell me how you did it….

So I need some technical advice. Hubs/routers/switches and 2 VoIP lines and cable Internet.

2-phones_diagram-networkSo, the deal here at home is that I have an opportunity for a new job, working from home doing tech support. That is all well and good, I can basically fix anything, given the proper feedback from the user.

Of course the issue is simple,  I’ll need a dedicated line for this and I already have one line coming in from the cable company. So the question arises, can I simply add an Ethernet switch/hub to my cable modem and then run a Vonage line  off of that? Does anyone know if the cable companies have issues with this? Obviously Vonage is cheaper, avoids adding a second cable line/modem and/or charges for a “business” service which is actually slower than the high speeds I get through Media-com Cable Premium services. And no, I can’t get a second /overpriced line from cable without switching to business service which is, as I stated previously, inferior to residential speed wise.

If you have done this, or something similar, I would appreciate the feed back.

I could use a little help/input. Then again, you could choose to be a selfish bastard and not share your knowlege…

923-923-helpdeskSo here we have a site dedicated to helping folks learn about WordPress and also how to setup their own server. Yet we have very little participation and although I offer some free disk space and even some test sites, no one seems interested.

So once again I a reaching out to find folks who wish to help, perhaps even post some articles. I know, before I even hit publish that no one will sign up, but I am asking anyway.

I can post a zillion articles on the server end of things, but help for folks learning to run a blog could also help folks.

So sign up, sign in and send me a message from dashboard.
