  2. great video, however after everything is set up, I tried installing a WordPress theme and it prompted an ftp login stuff. had no clue what to put in the Hostname, FTP Username and FTP Password

  3. Does this platform allows you to run a Windows 2020 like a laptop on cloud for free? Something along the line of amazon ec2.

  4. When he says paste this into terminal at the 5:00 then just pull up a green code screen that he did not show us how to get too. 90% of viewers who are noobs are now lost.

  5. What trick makes the hosting free? It is not clear if I do not install all that useless for me soft can I get free hosting or not?

  6. My goodness ChrisT. I never thought that this would be that easy. Been dealing w/ shared host companies w/ poor servcies for year. But this i have total control. Open a new world for me and it wont be for word press. Great job on vids. Fun, Good Pace, and added humor. Thanks a bunch and happily subscribed and will be following.

  7. You must have been grandfathered in to the service. Now they only offer free trial, after which they will charge.
