Jomar, I’ve got lots of questions about Website Hosting with Wordpress.

Yes, I know you do.

You already know that a host is a rented hard disc space in the internet, but that’s not enough. You need to know everything - right? So let me try telling you everything I know about getting a host, specifically, your first hosted wordpress site up and running.

Warning! Did you think this is a step by step? Of course not, you can go to youtube for step by step tutorials & understand nothing. This is for your understanding.

Ready?

How much does Hosting really cost?

If you rent for 3 years, it’s P 12,000. It you rent for 2 years, a bit more expensive vs 3 years. If you rent for every month, it’s around $5/month. That’s P 225/month.

Read it again, this is the number that many people fear: p 225/month. Why do they fear it? They don’t understand what a host is for, that’s why many are unwilling to spend P 225/month. After all, that’s one starbucks coffee + a piece of bread - every month!

Now why would anybody want to spend soooo much money on hosting?

1. Why are you spending so much on cellphones?
2. Why are you still paying for cable?
3. Why pay for movies at all?

That’s because you figure you NEED THEM.

Why would any body need hosting?

A virtual professional needs to be seen as “experienced”, “knowledgeable” and “up to date” -in order to be considered a professional and deserve high income.

Of course you don’t know if that’s true, so let’s try it this way:

A DOCTOR/LAWYER/ACCOUNTANT needs to be seen as “experienced”, “knowledgeable” and “up to date” -in order to be considered a professional and deserve high income.

So you do agree now?

In 2015, to be considered professional, experienced, knowledgeable and up to date - one of the minimum considerations is that you know how to use a HOSTED WORDPRESS website.

WHY IS THAT?


Hosted wordpress powers 30% of all internet sites on the planet.

Your paying client probably has a hosted wordpress site and will rely on you to maintain, improve it for her business.

Knowing http://Wordpress.com/ blogs is not enough. You need to know how to run a hosted wordpress blog.

THE DIFFERENCE OF THE TWO WORDPRESSES


Free http://Wordpress.com/ blogs work like hosted ones. The big difference is the Plugins section of Free http://Wordpress.com/ blogs do not work, they’re turned off. To use Plugins, you need hosted wordpress.

Why is that important?

Plugins are the heart of why Hosted Wordpress is very popular. Plugins make HW (hosted wordpress) more powerful than it’s competition : Blogger, Drupal, Typepad, Strikingly. etc.

Here’s some examples of powerful plugins:

1. Premise - converts wordpress into a membership site where you can control access. YAWN. This is boring. You really want to know this? Then please let me know in the comments......

2. Facebook Comments - puts FB comments under each blog post or article. But you already know that right? 

3. Scarcity Samurai - puts a countdown under each blog page that has a deadline. I told you about this plug-in in 100K on autopilot.

4. Drip - allows you to put email catchers on top of the Wp blog.
I told you about this plug-in in 100K on autopilot.

WAIT WAIT WAIT




That’s already techie! I don’t understand a thing you just said, Jomar!

Sorry. Are you one of those people who still doesn’t know how to use Facebook, until today?

But you’re curious about working at home earning dollars?

Then get someone to teach you the internet - because I’m sure I’m NOT QUALIFIED.

I can’t convert you from a non-techie to someone who knows how to use FB and EMAIL.

That’s asking too much from me.

The minimum you can do is to help yourself.

How about BUYING or SPENDING YOUR TIME reading some Internet For Dummies book?

That’ll help. For me, if you want something, you gotta get qualified for the minimum requirements, right?

AUDITIONING FOR THE VOICE...




In the mall, yesterday I saw a line for THE VOICE auditions.

I’m pretty sure the people in the line aren’t there for VOICE LESSONS.

They know what an audition is.

They probably practiced in their shower already.

Nobody is under the illusion that there’s a FREE TEACHER in MUSIC in the audition line.

This is just an essay, it’s not going to teach you the basics of the internet.

LET ME GET BACK

Unlike your non-techie reaction to WP Plugins - most paying customers like to talk about WP Plugins. If you’re familiar with these plugins -you get the job. If you say you’ve used the plugins - you get the job. And I’m talking about online jobs.

WHAT ELSE IS THERE?




When you buy a domain name, you pay P 500/year. That’s P 1.30/day.

But domain names alone are pretty useless. They’re empty.

So if you buy a host, you pay like P 225/month - if you get from http://jhilario.com/bestwebhostforjomar - that cost includes the domain name as well.

So the first you do is to determine what domain name is connected to your host.
And as I said, you need to use your firstnamelastname as your first domain name.

AYAW KO

Go ahead and ignore that advise. So you can be like Bo Sanchez, someone else purchased his http://bosanchez.com/ - because they have the SAME NAME. (guy’s mexican).

A MARK OF A PROFESSIONAL VIRTUAL DUDE is a domain name.

No need to explain that. At the very least you know the importance of a domain name that you got one.

WHAT IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A DOMAIN NAME THAT’S EMPTY?


You can redirect or connect your empty domain name to an existing or newly purchased host.

Just look at the HELP files to connect the two.

So here’s the timeline:

3 years ago - you purchased a domain name.
2 years ago - you still have no idea what to do with it, so you still pay.
1 year ago - you purchased a host but with a different domain name.

Today - you want to connect the host with your old domain name. You look at your host and find the “domains” portion and proceed to follow a loooong step by step process that looks like it was developed for kids who loved Dungeons and Dragons.

WORDPRESS DESIGNS


Jomar, I’m stuck with my Wordpress Themes. There seem to be so little designs available.

What theme or design should I use?

First of all, there are 500,000 available designs and themes wordwide - lots of them free. So you’re mistaken.

The only themes you should pay attention to are themes that are RESPONSIVE (pang mobile) and allow you to put an email catcher. That’s all.

OVERWHELMED WITH DESIGNS


Jomar, too many WP designs, I gave up selecting anything! Get from http://Modernthemes.net/ There’s only a handful of choices.

WHY?

Because they’re responsive - and if they don’t allow email catchers, you can still use sumome or drip plugins to get email addresses.

WHEN I CHANGE THE DESIGN, the whole WP blog changes! How can I keep one design to one page only?

You can’t really.

Go create another WP blog with a different design. This is one of the advantages of getting a host. You can create like 200 WP blogs - each with a different design - if you really want to get so confused.

SO HOW DOES THAT WORK?


Me I got my domain name : http://ideasthatprosper.com/

The following list are different blogs of different designs inside that host:

Instant Virtual Skills – http://www.ideasthatprosper.com/ivsmembers/
Marketing Success Formula – http://ideasthatprosper.com/msfmembers/
VA League of Experts – http://ideasthatprosper.com/vlemembers
Date with Freedom – http://ideasthatprosper.com/vir tualcareers
Deep Internet Secrets – http://ideasthatprosper.com/premiumdeepinternetsecretswebinar/
VA202 Gold Rush Downloadable Seminar – http://ideasthatprosper.com/va202seminar/
VA2013 Downloadable Seminar – http://ideasthatprosper.com/vaseminardownloadable/

All the above are protected blogs using the PREMISE plugin. You need to be a paying member to access that’s inside. I’m using only one host for all of these. Of course - there are a lot so I’m NOT paying P 225/month. I’m paying more. But that’s not you. That’s me.

MAYBE THERE ARE FREE HOSTS OUT THERE?




If you prefer to waste your time looking for unicorns, let me introduce you to my friends PINKIE PIE & TWILIGHT SPARKLE!

For me time is not money, it’s more important. But let me challenge you. Fire up google for 4 hours, NOW - google for FREE WEBHOST. Try it out, make sure it has wordpress with plugins. Try to test it out. Then report to all the readers below your 4 hours was fruitful or not.

Go ahead, I shall wait!

OTHER HOST PROVIDERS?


Here’s the secret, only ONE COMPANY owns all the host providers online - most of them anyway. So if you’re shopping around for other “brands” that are cheaper - know that they’re mostly the same.

But feel free to waste your time looking for others. Really. Time isn’t more valuable than money? Sure - find out for yourself when you spend 3 years looking for a cheap or free host - while the rest of the readers of this essay are already ENJOYING a monthly dollar income at home.

It’s not about saving P 50/month. Sure that’s important. It’s learning NOW how to earn additional P 25,000/month by being a user of Hosted Wordpress and it’s plugins as early as possible!

LOOK AT THAT

It’s about the focus. You can focus on saving P 50/month but that’s nothing compared to earning an extra P 25,000 by learning Hosted Wordpress.

IS THIS NEW? 

Wordpress Plugins have been around for more than 10 years. You are fortunate you’re seeing this year’s version. Before, I had to access the Host’s File System (all it’s folders etc) and manually use FTP (looks like MS / DOS) to upload and delete plugins.

Today you just press INSTALL and ACTIVATE - in many cases. In other cases you download a zip file, then click upload inside WP then click Install and Activate. Very simple to use.

MOVING FROM .http://WORDPRESS.com/ to Hosted Wordpress

If you already have an existing http://shielaisip.wordpress.com/ (using http://wordpress.com/’s free hosting) and you want to move it all to another host like http://shielaisip.com/, here’s how you do it:



In your shielaisip.wordpress.com, go to Wordpress Tools --> Export.
In your http://shielaisip.wordpress.com/, go to Wordpress Tools --> Export.
This will save all your blog files into your hard disc.
In your http://shielaisip.wordpress.com/, go to Wordpress Tools -->Import.

Then pray.

Yes, you need to do that last part. It’s important because if you get an error message, I can’t help you. You need to google for that.

JOMAR, WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO EXPORT / IMPORT??




You can simply buy your domain name (shielaisip.com) from inside your shielaisip.wordpress.com. Wordpress will link the two together.

You can simply buy your domain name (http://shielaisip.com/) from inside yourhttp://shielaisip.wordpress.com/ Wordpress will link the two together.

The catch? You can no longer create multiple blogs with different designs.

You have one blog : http://shielaisip.com/ - and that’s it.

I could be wrong here though.

So just comment below if you have a different experience.

Now, how come it feels like I’ve answered all of questions already?

Yes, I did! At the webinar, we will shed light to all these questions. But some people won’t get it using words alone, they want to see, they want to hear, they want stuff moving in front of their eyes.

Strange as it may seem, some people will be reading this 5 months down the road too. So answering it all now and again - in a different medium addresses everyone’s need.

So if you’re a go-getter. If you recognize a great thing when you read it, watch this webinar replay :

Don't Hold Back Your Questions About Your Virtual Careers Blog. Here's 10 of them. Answered.



Hi!
It was surprising to me to find out that one of the first things people ask about when becoming a Virtual Professional (start a Virtual Career) - is 
“How do I make a website?

How could I have missed that?

So are you asking that question?

Do you have questions about Domains, Hosting, Subdomains, Parking, URL, Cost and Options, Wordpress, Themes?

If you do, here’s the beginning of understanding:

1. Domain Names
What’s your name? Shiela Isip? Then your first ever domain name must be shielaisip.com. Now if I go type that in google, what appears?

Usually if you buy a domain name (from namecheap.com for example) at P500/year  - that’s P1.30/day for calculating people -
It’s empty.

An empty domain name will usually display something like “This is a new website, under construction.”
Sometimes you’ll get a 404 error. 404 is the internet-speak for “it’s not there!” “file not found” “sorry, try again, did you get the spelling correctly?”

In some instances, the website you purchased the domain name from - will make advertisements appear when people visit your domain name. This is called a PARKED DOMAIN. While you’re not using it (filling it up with your blog or images etc) - they’re using it to make money. Yes, they’re making money from the PARKED DOMAIN. So you better put something in that domain soon.

Now why is the website empty? Because you just purchased a name - shielaisip.com.

PABEBE WAVE


It’s a same case when your parents found out you were a girl - via ultrasound.  They would shoot names to each other - every night. Susan? No. Brenda? No. Victoria? Eww. Shiela? Pwede.

So they decided one day -Shiela Isip will be your name.
Now can they do ANYTHING with that name?
Not really.
They can’t file it in the government or church.
Why is that?
You’re still in the WOMB.
The name is empty.
But when you came out - even before baptism, you were given the name.

So a domain name is simply  name. The person - the human being is another thing altogether. So what is the equivalent of the human be ing in website terms?

Read on and find out.

2. Hosting - This is so easy using a diagram:

Human —> First name, last name —>Shiela Isip
Hosting —>Domain name —>ShielaIsip.com

So the stuff inside the website (images, files, videos, text, resume, blog) must be stored somewhere.
Today, they’re stored inside your computer’s hard disc.
If you want all those things to be in your website, you rent a hard disc that’s located in the internet. This is called the host.

In the movie, “Beauty and the Beast” - the candlestick (candelabra) and the clock sang “Be Our Guest” to Belle.  She was a stranger in an enchanted castle and they LET HER IN and allowed her to wander in the castle - except the EAST WING.

Quick what do you call Lumiere and Cogsworth? (the candlestick and clock?).

They are Belle’s HOSTS.
Because they let her in and let her stay.

The internet host is a hard disc that allows you to put your resume, blog, videos, files, images inside it.
Now why use an internet host or a "hosting service”?
Hosting computers are ALWAYS TURNED ON.
Hosting services are ALWAYS connected to the internet.
This way anytim e anybody looks at shielaisip.com - they can see something.
If some BEAST turns off the hosting service - located say in ARIZONA or SINGAPORE - your website will be 404. File not found.
This is why you pay for hosting.
To keep BEASTS and GASTON away and keep 99% uptime for your website.

Capish?

So where do I recommend you buy a host?

How to Start Your First Website (Explained in Plain English + Pabebe!)



Scene: Online interview, via Skype:

Potential client: I saw your blog. Impressive.

Angelo: Thank you. I do my best.

Potential client: When can you start working for me?

Angelo: Right now if you want....

Later Angelo wonders: He didn't even ask what I did in my previous work! Yet he hired me? 

Why is that?

TAMA O MALI?


Do you think that "experience" or "job history" "past employment" MATTERS when getting an online job or virtual career?

Well it doesn't.

Really.

What matters is, I'm about to give you a link to an ENTIRELY FREE 30+ PART ONLINE COURSE made by professionals to teach you how to do a task that pays more than P30,000 a month.

ARE YOU INTERESTED?


I did say it's FREE.

I did say it's EXTENSIVE.

I did say it's HIGH VALUED.

I didn't say there was a catch.

There is ZERO catch.

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS JOMAR?


Because that most important question a client wants an answer to is not:

Did you do well in your old job?
Did you make high sales in your previous work?
Do you have experience dealing with humans?
They don't care about that.

MOST CLIENTS only care about one thing. (Note to my team : I'm not MOST clients)




ANO YUN?

Here it is: Clients want something done (post interesting stuff in my FB, buy facebook ads, manage instagram for example).

Here's what they want to know: CAN YOU PROVE IT THAT YOU KNOW HOW TO DO THAT?

Your leadership background? Useless.

Your honors? Useless.

Your awards for perfect attendance? Useless in the ONLINE WORLD.

Until you can confidently SHOW (NOT TELL) your own work online (in a blog) - you're NOT QUALIFIED TO BE INTERVIEWED.

THIS IS THE REASON WHY THE VIRTUAL CAREERS BOOK/VA SEMINAR/DATE WITH FREEDOM was made.

You need to create something online first.

A "SHOW AND TELL" site.

That the client would BROWSE before the interview (they will, w/o you telling them to) so the interview is a HIRING INTERVIEW.
