About this ‘How to Run a Website’ Class

It’s not difficult to run a WordPress website once you know your way around. A lot of this stuff can seem confusing, but everything becomes clear as students work through the modules. I teach the benefits of using a separate web host and registrar and how to manage both accounts. There are also lectures dedicated to cPanel, site monitoring, and how to track visitors.

Members learn how to install WordPress with a single click. Also, how to use email accounts (domain and free) to best effect, a look at content delivery networks (CDN), and more. Course participants become adept site administrators in very little time.

Is Essential Webmaster Skills Right for You?

This course is right for anyone ready to start taking more control of websites, blogs or stores. It aims to help people become comfortable with all aspects of site management.

It offers tools, steps, and options on how to become a successful webmaster. Skills like these save money by reducing hired help costs. It does not teach web content, though. See WordPress for Beginners for web design, page/post creation, and help planning a new project.

Friendly Course Format

Webmaster Essentials is divided into 10 easy-to-follow sections and 43 lectures. It all starts with an introduction before getting into the enjoyable, bite-sized modules. And there’s also a bonus section at the end that includes links to some useful resources for members. Students on this course can choose to work through the program at a pace that fits in with their schedule.

Although English is not my native language I can understand very well the content of the courses. I found all the stuff about domains and web hostings very useful as well. I’m very grateful for all of these courses. All is very clear and to the point.
