If you’ve been looking for a simple, affordable, and organized way to provide your students with their very own WordPress blog, look no further. While there’s certainly no shortage of free website platforms out there today, none of them tout as many features as the ever popular WordPress. If you’ve looked into using WordPress in the past, you’ve probably run up against the prohibitive costs and technical hurdles associated with finding a suitable web host.
In less than an hour and for right around $30, you can host your students’ WordPress on your very own VPS (Virtual Private Server.) This guide will walk you through the steps associated with:
- Purchasing a domain name.
- Purchasing and configuring a VPS.
- Configuring DNS on your domain. (don’t worry, it’s not as scary as it sounds.)
- Creating a new WordPress site for each of your students using ServerPilot.
