Basic Glossary Question re Hosting
I work at a community college and I’m looking around for ways to help the Art Department create a WordPress blog. None of us have a lick of experience at this. Here’s what I know so far:
I want to be able to make/maintain on our blog from my desktop at work.
I want to avoid using the college server.
So that means I have to find a host, yes? Does a host let me keep our server out of the loop? When a site like BlueHost touts “1 click installation”, does that refer to installing software on the college server? Is that necessary if our server isn’t hosting the blog?
WordPress.com seems to say that I can do everything from their site, but I think that art faculty will eventually want more bells and whistles than WordPress.com supports.
Your thoughts and your patience much appreciated.
