The Purpose of This Project
For every project there is a purpose. In my case, a colleague designed and hosted a site for me that runs the popular WordPress CMS. Due to a change in focus in his business and changing needs of mine, it became prudent to take over hosting and management of my website. While I recognize that there are limitations and caveats with WordPress, as I’m sure can be said of any CMS platform, it works for me and it’s already set up. While I have many grand ideas for my site, right now I don’t have the time or the team to implement them, and frankly they aren’t my highest business priority. So I’ve decided to stick with what already works rather than build something new and move everything into it.
In this article I’ll discuss:
- Background on who I am and why I’m taking this on
- The business requirements this project will meet
- Which hosting service will work for me
- And finally, which technologies I’ll use to host my WordPress site.
