How To Improve Your Blog With Tools Your Web Host Already Gives You
Education Level: Intermediate
Find out how you can make your blog faster, more secure and more awesome using some underused facilities which are included in your hosting plan already. Most people have no idea what their hosting plan does for them or the breadth of facilities it provides. You will be shown, step by step, some of the things you can do including: viewing statistics on your site you probably didn’t know exist that can help you speed up your site, how to use FTP, how to edit and backup your database manually and how to add password protected areas for better security.
Attendees of this session will go away with a much greater knowledge of some of the functions available through their web hosting plan.
1. Find which posts/pages/files are slowing their site down
2. Perform manual backups to secure their hard-work
3. Find other golden nuggets their host has provided them with and start using them to their advantage.
