  • Since we are working with the self-hosted version of WordPress, we are going to need an environment to work. That’s what “self” means – bring your own environment. The first step is getting a domain name such as rudyduke.com. Hostway.com is a good choice for purchasing domains. Cost is around $8 per year. At such a low price, consider purchasing the “yoursite.com”, “yoursite.org” and even “yoursite.net” versions. Select a domain name that:Represents what your site is about; Is as short (25 letters or less) as possible, and Contains real words that are easy to spell.
  • Owning a domain name is half of the equation. Now you need a web server to point that domain toward. The web server will then do its thing and serve up your website. You don’t need to buy your domain and hosting at the same place, and in fact, we advise against it. For example, a hosting company doesn’t have a whole lot of incentive to offer you support in moving your hosting to a different server, should that ever become necessary. Hosting is more expensive than domain names, but for low to medium traffic sites, even basic hosting plans are adequate. RudyDuke.com is hosted at HostGator for $5 per month. Don’t skimp on hosting; pick a professional, reliable host that offers great tech support via multiple media (web/chat/phone). We can usually get all issues resolved via text chat in less than 15 minutes.
  • A Text EditorTo do things yourself, you need the tools of the trade that will facilitate getting your hands dirty.Your FrontPage / Dreamweaver days are over. WYSIWYG editors will be of no use to you while building dynamic, WordPress-powered websites. You are better than that anyway. We are going to get our hands dirty with real code, so you need to be using a real code editor. Here is a summary of some of the better code editors currently available: Mac TextMate$59 http://digwp.com/u/231 Mac TextWranglerFree http://digwp.com/u/232 PC UltraEdit$49 http://digwp.com/u/233 PC Notepad++ Free http://digwp.com/u/234 Both jEditFree http://digwp.com/u/235  FTP Program To connect to your web server and transfer files back and forth from your computer, you’ll need some FTP software.
