Do you own a small business and need a website? You can pay someone hundreds or even thousands of dollars to build it. Or you can learn to DIY. No prior experience necessary.
When you walk out of this two-hour class, your business will have a web presence and you will have done it all yourself for much cheaper than paying someone to do it. How cool is that?
Learn to Build, Host & Customize a Website in 2 Hours
In the two-hour class, we’ll hit the highlights of the Basic WordPress class and also add:
- Setting up your web hosting
- Installing WordPress
- Selecting and registering domain names
- Important WordPress plugins you should install and how to do it
- Creating custom menus
- Basic Search Engine Optimization or SEO
- Introduction to DNS management
- Explanation of shared hosting
- Understanding the principles of responsive design
- Connecting social media accounts and optimizing for social sharing
- Brief introduction to customizing a WordPress site with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
The two-hour class is for people who want to set up their own hosting account and register a domain name, which gives you more control of the design and function of your website than you get from a standard WordPress.com account.
Prepare to feel the power of the web coursing through your veins. You will be able to build your own website, host it on a shared server, lightly customize it with CSS, and you’ll understand exactly how the whole system works..
This isn’t just paying someone to build your website (though we can do that too). This is learning how to build your own site so you can do it yourself again and again. You can view our schedule of upcoming classes on our calendar. We keep classes small in order to offer hands-on training. Only five spots per class, so be sure to sign up early.
About the Teacher
The Bluegrass has been my home for 35 years. I love Kentucky and my passion is providing Kentucky small businesses with the tech knowledge they need to succeed.
Note: We will walk through this whole process during the class so, for best results, bring a laptop. Also keep in mind that the hosting provider will charge approximately $100/yr, but this hosting account will allow you to host several of your own websites.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals.
