Cloud website?

wordpress

#1

I signed up with a Cloud website service and need help on how to proceed with building a website on it. Can I download Wordpress on my Cloud site?

I want a blog with questions and answers.

Hi @charlottehyatt2, this is usually a question you would ask before signing up with a host, and is a question your host would be better able to answer for you.

That said, it should be possible, but you would need to check with your host how it's done. Many hosts offer a one-click install for WordPress and other packages, but you would need to check with them how it's done.

Hi gandalf458. Thanks for your response.

You're right. I should have nosed around the web hosting site and known what I could do beforehand. I saw what I thought was a good deal and jumped on it. A "good deal" is only a good deal if it meets your needs.

Fortunately, my (late) welcome email told me what I needed to know. A cloud service is no different from a regular web hosting service is it?

In an of itself, "Cloud Hosting" doesn't really have a solid meaning.

What hosting service did you sign up for specifically? Please don't provide any personally identifying information, just the name and plan of the provider.

I anticipated that having a Google AmpProject compatible website would have very similar global rendering performance statistics... tools.pingdom.com always shows abysmal timings when testing from Melbourne, Australia?
