    Hi there. Great tutorial and thrilled to follow along as you went, implementing. Just frustrated that I get this message: server IP address could not be found. I'm hoping it will resolve itself overnight. Not sure what the issue is.

  • Tom Emery on March 30, 2020

    Hi, can someone help me out? I want to start a WordPress site through bluehost, but I've read that WordPress plans are expensive through bluehost. Maybe I'm not understanding something here, because the price of bluehost seems to be low, at $3-4 a month, but then I've come across prices like $15 a month for WordPress. So I pay for bluehost then pay the expensive WordPress fee too? Or is the high WordPress price a higher quality package? Someone please explain, I'm thoroughly confuddled.

  • Programming Chicago on April 3, 2020
