My First Hosted Joomla! Website
Whether you've got LAMP set up on your personal computer, or you've got a Linux system, sooner or later you'll want to take your Joomla! website that you've developed and make it available to the world.
This month, we're going to look at some of the considerations of how to do that.
Do you want your own domain name, just what is this whole DNS thing anyways?
How do I get email for my own domain instead of just Gmail/Yahoo/Outlook?
When I choose a hosting company, what do all those numbers they're quoting really mean to me?
Can I get a "free" web site, and what are the limitations?
How quickly can I get a web site for my company or organization up and running if I've got nothing?
What's the meaning of life?
For answers to most of these questions come join us at the North York Civic Centre on Tuesday, 23 September, 2014 starting at 7:00PM.
Who's this for:
Especially if you're just starting out with Joomla!, this is a good presentation for you. We're not going to get too technical, unless you need us to. After the evening, you should be able to create a simple brochure style website, and get it out there with a hosting company. Just remember the hardest part of any web site is usually creating the content - Joomla! makes all the rest easy.
