Description

Outgrowing your free WordPress Blog? Want to do more interesting stuff, customise, add your own plugins and themes? Do you want to move from WordPress to your own self hosted WordPress? Want to easily point your own domain name to your Blog?

Maybe you one of the many people unhappy with your “old school” Web or Blog hosting? Is your web host slow, unreliable, and does your provider's support suck? Do you get the impression that they are always selling you something you don't need? Well I'm going to let you in on a little secret. They probably are.

Or do you just want to start learning Cloud the easy way, by creating your very first Website or Blog on a “newbie friendly” Cloud platform?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then this Course is for you.

After following this course you will be able to easily set up your Website or Blog on fast, reliable and cost effective AWS LightSail hosting, using nothing more than your web browser, by filling in a few forms and copying and pasting some text.

You will feel confident enough to set up everything you need to host your website or blog in the Cloud, using the clear uncluttered Amazon LightSail and ServerPilot web interfaces.

Oh, for you geeks out there on Udemy, you will also learn how to install and use the Amazon Command Line Interface (CLI), so you can efficiently manage your Cloud servers by just typing commands on your computer.  

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who wants to learn the EASY way to host WordPress
  • People who want to host their Web sites reliably and on a budget
  • Those who want to learn the simplest way to start using Amazon AWS Cloud
  • People who want to get away from traditional hosts like Bluehost
  • Virtual Assistants who manage multiple WordPress sites

System & Network Security Architect

I've been working with computers and electronics since I was sixteen and these days I help people around the world learn about and user Cloud Computing.

In 1997 I was certified by IBM as an AIX UNIX Advanced Administrator and more recently an IBM Certified Solution Advisor in Cloud Computing Architecture.  I have been a Mirantis OpenStack Certified Professional since 2015. 

I'm super passionate about Open Source, and especially Linux and Cloud.  That's because I've seen first hand how well Linux performs and how fantastic it really is.  I teach what I have learned during hundreds of successful hands-on projects.  And I'm delighted to have the opportunity to share with you what I have learned the hard way, so it doesn't have to be hard for you.  If you want to know more, then please follow me on any of the social media links opposite.
