Description

I created this course for entrepreneurs and entrepreneur wannabes like myself that know that good web hosting is a must for any online business.
Cloudways has partnered with several cloud-hosting services that provide low-cost, high-speed super secure hosting packages – BUT this comes with a bit of a learning curve.
That is where this course comes in.
So that you do not need to spend the days or weeks as I did…,
•searching through outdated YouTube videos,
•reading through endless pages of knowledgebase articles
•and countless contacts with support personnel
You have this course broken into step-by-step over-the-shoulder style training videos, quizzes, and resource guides that walk you through the beginning to the end of setting up your Cloudways server package.
On top of that, you have me to personally help you with any questions you have.
Here is a quick overview of what is inside:
Get my Cloudways account and explain the first few steps of the setup process.
Install a fresh WordPress site, then later on I show you a couple of ways to migrate my existing eCommerce site onto that fresh WP installation.
I also show you a speed test of the eCommerce site after set-up on Cloudways vs in its original host.
I can do this because early in the course I purchase a new domain name and add it to my Cloudways server and that is where I migrate that eCommerce site. So I have the exact same site on the new domain on Cloudways and the original domain at the same time.
The Speed test results are amazing. And these results are BEFORE we do any optimization on Cloudways! Oh and I also cover both application and server optimization in this course.
I show you a few different ways to set up an email service because the cloud hosting services do not offer that.
Oh and Cloudways partnered with Cloudflare to offer the Enterprise package for a few bucks a month instead of the several hundred per month getting it straight from Cloudflare. I show you how to set up both the FREE AND Enterprise packages of Cloudflare.
I’ve rambled on long enough.
All the lecture details are listed here on the course description page and you can check out the sample lectures to see and hear the quality of the lectures.
Plus you have the full refund policy backing up your purchase today. Lifetime access as well as access to me anytime you have questions, comments, or suggestions.

Teacher, Online Marketer & WordPress Enthusiast
      In order for me to help you, I need to first tell you a little something about me – so here goes…   
  Video Training Course Creator 
      I have been creating & selling video courses online since 2007. In 2008 I taught myself how to create a WordPress site and fell in love with WP on the spot. 
      My video courses are over-the-shoulder style screen capture videos so you can see me doing the tasks versus someone talking over a PowerPoint slide deck. 
      You simply watch what I do on the videos then do them yourself. Makes learning Fast & Easy! 
  Since 2008 I’ve created 100’s of videos. 
      Many of what I’ve sold over the years were what are called Private Label videos. Businesses (and individuals) would purchase them and put their name on them as the creator. So while my name may not be known by many, my voice & teaching style is. 
  I love helping people. 
      My training videos are detailed to the point where I assume the student knows zero about the topic so the videos tend to answer all potential questions. If however, there are questions, I reply to those questions personally and within hours – NOT DAYS. 
      I pride myself on quality – quality videos as well as quality Customer Service. 
      So if you ever have a question, suggestion or comment, please let me know.
