This is my first ever talk. I was extremely nervous, despite discussing a subject I like to talk about. I think the talk was well received, and there were some great questions.
Synopsis: Self hosting WordPress offers more freedom and flexibility than using WordPress.com, but there are still restrictions. With the dropping prices and increasing performance of Virtual Private Servers, self hosting not just your website, but your entire server is quite possible. Jim will talk about why you should consider self hosting from the server level up, how to get started with a VPS, and the basics of configuring and monitoring your own private internet island.
