Host your own website or blog with this unique guide

If you'd like to make the leap from a hosted environment to a self-hosted service, this book is for you. You may be making the move from casual blogging to professional blogging. Or, you might already be self-hosting, but want a good guide to show you how to get more out of your plan. In simple, easy-to-understand language, this helpful book breaks down all the functions of web hosting for self-hosted users, from setting up new e-mail accounts to backing up and securing your site, analyzing server logs, choosing a platform to install, and more.

  • Breaks down the functions of web hosting for new self-hosters, including casual bloggers who may be moving into professional blogging
  • Helps those who are already self-hosting maximize the services they are paying for
  • Offers a one-stop, complete resource on web hosting, rather than just a few chapters, as in many blogging books
