Are you using wordpress? Are you paying for hosting?

How many of you here are using wordpress and/or paying for hosting?

I think blogspot.com blogs are a lot of the time filled with fanciful graphics and some times very weird navigation that requires the user to read some instructions about clicking certain graphics to access the content.

Wordpress is leet, especially self-hosted.

Re: Are you using wordpress? Are you paying for hosting?

I'm using wordpress too =) It's good and organised. The entry even has indivdual password set. Hmm but not paying for the host plan unless it's officially known.

Used to be in blogspot but too many people are using and somemore I need to make my own blogskin, too lazy to do that =)

im using wordpress and paid for the hosting too. there r so many themes to download to customise your own wordpress blog (for own hosting only).

if you want free blog hosting, i recommend blogger instead of wordpress. the free wordpress has alot of restrictions and cant insert your own html codes!

Nope. They actually gave me the wordpress dashboard and allow me to created it and they host it for me free. I don't mind their advertising as their online support is very good and when I have any trouble with the wordpress setting they are always very fast in solving it for me. As I'm doing Scale Modeling blogging and towards this kind of art form they are always very supportive so it a win win situation

Re: Are you using wordpress? Are you paying for hosting?

Okay, I am gonna offer wordpress hosting with FTP access with a dot com domain of your choice for S$30 a year. (equivalent to $2.50 a month)

For S$30 a year, you can have:
[your-choice-of-domain].com
email address at [your-choice-of-email]@[your-choice-of-domain].com
Wordpress (Latest Version) is installed for you
You can install your own plugins: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/
Create, download and use your own themes/designs.
You can add any advertising into the site as you wish
Add cbox, or whatever you want into the site, it is completely customizable.

FTP allows you to upload files to the site, which means you can do other stuff as well.

That's $2.50 a month, which is equivalent to a plate of chicken rice. If you're making money with your blog, it is probably worth the investment.

Yes, you can import your posts from blogger.com or other wordpress blogs.

Restriction: No Adult/Illegal Content

More updates soon. PM if interested.

--

Anyway, I am also planning to do some research on blogshops, so if you are running one, send me a PM or something.

S$30 a year sounds unbelievable as the operation cost in Singapore is high plus you have to pay monthly for the co-location and server stuffs etc. S$30 cant generate profit and normally such company usually close down soon unless you are a hosting reseller which should be alright but still the profit is little....

Yea, it's a crazy unbelievable price.
I have the resources that I have already paid for in advance, so it's not gonna crash and burn any time soon.

Lot's of bloggers, many of them non-working students, might not want to pay a lot for such things because it is too costly, so I am offering this at a very low price and I am not trying to make much of a profit out of this.

I also realise that, they might not have the technical knowledge to create the database and install the script, which can take quite some time to learn and do, so everything is pre-installed for them. The customisation is up to them, still, however I will be writing some basic guides as well so that they can learn how to do these stuff.

Anyway, I am just testing this out, so this offer might not last too long. Once I have some time, I will throw in some other cool stuff as well.

If you're doing something related, such as a poly course in web dev, multimedia or web design, or wanna start out in this field, this is where you can learn some practical stuff.

More details later. PM if interested.

Re: Are you using wordpress? Are you paying for hosting?

you did not provide alot of information. i presume it is a shared hosting..

how much is the web space and bandwidth?

there are alot better and cheaper offers around in sg tt can provide that. also, there is a feature in cpanel that can install the latest wordpress for the user.

moreover, other companies in sg have more credibility and great helpdesk.

you really have to offer more to compete with other hosting companies in sg.

Re: Are you using wordpress? Are you paying for hosting?

There are cheaper offers at annual rate with a dot com domain included?

I am able to provide it at this price because I am not some big company with lots of employees.

Bandwidth and webspace will be reasonable, I will add that later. As long as it is not used as proxies, file hosting sites (such as rapidshare), image hosting sites(such as imageshack) then it should be ok, even if traffic is high.

This does not include cpanel, unless requested. If cpanel is needed, the server is located in the UK. The servers in the US are relatively more reliable.

Anyway, this is all simplified for complete newbies - Wordpress, domain and email account set up for you. Haha, to get someone to set that up for you might even cost more than $30 not including hosting.

Re: Are you using wordpress? Are you paying for hosting?

I use Wordpress and I pay for hosting.

I use Dreamhost for hosting my domain. I bought my domain at Godaddy.com.

If you are interested on how I started my my first domain, you can check it out at http://tinyurl.com/4kr7mc

Fyi, there are two kinds of Wordpress.
Wordpress.com - free-hosting
e.g. yourblog.wordpress.com
Wordpress.org - paid-hosting on your own domain
e.g. yourblog.com
