It is officially time to relax for the next 4 days…please wish my liver well…
So I’m looking around in the options that WordPress.com has and I had a question . support is built into the interface. Thinking it would just bring up a FAQ page but no there are live support people who pop up in a chat to help. It was way more than I expected, thank you WordPress.
And on another good note when you have questions about Microsoft Exchange you can type in a question and there is a “call me” button. After a few mins someone calls you to help with what ever it is you need. WoW
Years ago Google started doing domains , for $12 a year you could register or move domains to their service. When moving domins TO google it was so fast and easy. It was almost instant….they are Google.
Since then I have found out the lack of tools to make some advanced changes sucks, forget about using Exchange they just push the Gapp program. And when you go to use email from another host and then change it , you have to contact them ( good luck ) to have them flush the old info out of the system ( been waiting 2 days so far )
Its a shame they start something ( again ) and forget it, it could be so nice if they would pay attention to it .
So this is more or less so I remember what I have testing for the the last week or so , but it might help someone from wasting time.
You should know what a blog is by now and mine has been bouncing from hosting provider to hosting provider as I test its speed and options. During all of this I was prompted to create a WordPress.com account for some of the plugins. Now they keep stats and inform you when and if the site is up and running stuff like that, what I found out about ( or just realized ) is the site itself can be hosted on the WP server so no matter who is doing the hosting I can just point it at the WordPress account and I don’t have to keep rebuilding it.
I tried just adding the domain service where you can just point a domain name at it ( $99. bucks) and that just sucked. All it did was add more plugins to confuse the server. I had to back up the blog and remove it from all servers and hosting sites for a day or two, then recreate it on the WP server. Then add the domain address and it worked, the files are on WP servers and its only $35 a year. ( not sure anyone is going to understand this but I learned crap OK )
Each hosting provider add plugins to a WP site , deals they make with different company’s. So doing a site like this can be way different depending on who you use. With this now all the sites and pugins are the same so it’s easy.
Server configs suck sometimes
