We have created a new topic in our forums, -Information-on-the-migration-of-your-Hostgator-in-Customer-Account-and-Orders , where we’ve covered some common questions. Please feel free to post your questions to this thread, and we will respond as soon as possible. WordPress is a state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards and usability. For our purposes, the only downside of Neocities is that they don’t support SFTP; to transfer files to their server, you have to use a web-based interface. But it’s drag-and-drop, and free, so maybe that’s a nice trade-off.
I market and consult online and always am learning so I picked up this book to see if I could get a few more tips. I was pleasantly surprised at the content. It starts out very basic, but that is what people need when they are getting online. I will recommend this ebook to those who ask me how do set up WordPress and launch on online business. I always say that it is best to control your own content (learn to build a WordPress site) vs. using a website builder (such as Wix, etc) where you don’t control your hosting and content. This ebook explains clearly how to get hosting, install WordPress, etc. Now for the parts I was mostly interested in – Ming Jong has some great tips for driving traffic, social marketing which I have not heard of or tried, but now will. Also, there is a nice bonus included at the end of the ebook I will take advantage of. I know others selling this type of content in very expensive courses – so this is well worth the small price.
If you’ve been playing around with your setup you may have noticed you cannot install any themes or plugins. This is because you don’t have FTP installed on your server (or at least you shouldn’t). I don’t recommend installing FTP on your server. It is just one more resource to be wasted, not to mention it could potentially create holes (risks) in your server. After leaving we had some issues getting refunds etc, and I found their customer service, while polite, to be unhelpful on several fronts. However, after I gave up and wrote a bad review here they did get in touch and refund me, so they clearly do care about their image and performance which is a good thing. From the other reviews here I guess the problems I had were unusual, but personally, I would struggle to recommend this company after the experience I had.
