Resources & FAQ

Do I need to download anything on to my computer?

Nope. You can access your WordPress admin area by logging in throughout the admin page. You can always access it by the following url:

www.yourwebsitename.com/wp-admin

Just enter your username and password (which I will provide you with) and you will be good to go. :)

 

Do I have to pay for something if I use WordPress.org?

You need to purchase a domain name and hosting services. These services can be paid in advance for better pricing. The cost is relatively low depending on the provider that you use.

 

What host should I use?

I always recommend using Host Gator. I have used them for over three years now – their customer service is amazing and their fees won’t break the bank.

 

I want to use my own host, are there any requirements?

Yes, WordPress requires the following from your host:

  • PHP 5.2.4 or greater
  • MySQL 5.0 or greater
  • The mod_rewrite Apache module

If you are unsure you can contact the host company and ask if they have the requirements listed above. Read more about the requirements over on WordPress.

 

Can I manage my WordPress website/blog without your assistance?

You sure can! That’s the best part about using WordPress. My job is to design and develop a website that you will love. Once we complete that process you are able to go into your WordPress Dashboard and easily make updates/edits.
