Client-managed websites

I get a lot of questions from small businesses wanting to set up a basic web site that they can maintain themselves. Services like godaddy and 1&1 are great turnkey domain name registrars, hosting services and web building packages. These on-line tools work well for content management once the initial set-up has been done.

But occasionally someone has a domain registered with just a basic hosting service. I’ve built Dreamweaver sites for them, but then I need to do the editing unless they get Contribute.

This is my own learning experiment with WordPress and the open source access it offers. Let’s see how it works.

Here’s what I’ve learned so far:

WordPress.com is for free sites using the wordpress.com suffix.

WordPress.org is the software download to place on a host server to work on the site via a browser.
