How many people in the course
  • Usually between 2-4 students.
  • A maximum of 5.
Can I set up on my own Domain?
  • Yes you can.
  • In this course we build a basic site from scratch.
  • So if you are creating your own website,  you can set everything up on your own domain in the course to save you doing it all again.

Prerequisite for setting up on your own domain

  • This must be done before you come to the course.
  • We do not have time to do it in the training.
  • You must buy your own hosting and domain first.
  • Then install WordPress.

  • If you need help installing WordPress from hosting’s cPanel read this tutorial on our website.

https://www.letsbuildawebsite.com.au/how-to-install-wordpress-from-cpanel/

We can help set this up

  • We charge $150 to set this up – including one year of hosting with Quadra Hosting or a host of your choice.

  • You will need to purchase your domain name.

  • Then send us the details.

  • We will have WordPress and your hosting all set up for your WordPress course.
  • Please note we cannot help you set up the complete website in this course.
  • If you need help setting up a website from scratch which is outside of the course outline (see above)  – see our Setting up a WordPress Site course.
Benefits of setting up on your own Domain?
  • In this WordPress Course, we set up the basic structure of a website on our servers.
  • If you are building your own site, it makes sense to set up on your own domain.
  • That way everything you learn will be applied to your own website.
  • This means you only need to set up the site once.
  • And with our help – not on your own.
  • This will save you alot of time as you only have to do it once.
  • If you are doing the course to learn WordPress for the your job or to build websites in the future then it is not necessary to set up on your own domain.
