For wilwebs.org, launching a blog dedicated to web hosting was more or less an obvious step – hosting is complimentary to creating websites.
HostingCaddie.com aims to assist two categories of website owners.
Those that are willing to learn how to take charge of the web hosting themselves. And those that just want to be able to have a meaningful discussions with hosts.
That should also explain the name HostingCaddie. A ‘caddie’ – or ‘caddy’ – supports a golfer. Not only by dragging the golfer’s gear, but also with advice.
In a way, that is also the goal with this blog; helping you to run your own website. No matter your level of ambition with regard to hosting.
The blogs of wilwebs.org are powered by WordPress. Because of that, some posts will be written from the perspective of a WordPress admin.
However, the majority of articles will benefit you no matter how your website was created; from static HTML pages, a hand-coded dynamic website, or with other popular content management systems like Drupal or Joomla!.
Topics within HostingCaddie’s scope are hosting in general, the domain name system (DNS), running websites through the cPanel, creating and managing cPanel accounts with the Web Hosting Manger (WHM), virtual servers, security, backups, optimization,…
So in a nutshell, you will learn how to take care of the web hosting yourself, so that you do not have to wait until others find the time to help you.
