    Angry Wordpress banning casino affiliate sites???

    Hi all, just got a weird email this morning from Wordpress.
    This is after I built my page on Wix and it's a nightmare on the loading time so I went with Wordpress after some strong recommendations. Anyhow, I'm in the process of recreating it and then this comes along... Has anyone else received this email? how did you handle it? I told them I do reviews for online casinos in my reply.

    That email doesn't say anything about banning casino affiliate sites? They just don't want spam.

    Ahh ok, so as Eddie says. You'll need to use .org version and take care of the hosting yourself. .com is hosted on their servers. There are a few hosts that don't like gambling sites, but most are ok.

    .org also much more flexible and stands you in better stead for the future.

    I'm 99.9% sure I saw AussieDave telling you to use .org and not .com when he recommended WordPress to you. Gotta pay attention to the details mate!

    The one major difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org is one website is for getting the software, reading about supoport issues, finding recommended plugins (and many other development related issues)

    WordPress.com, is a web host for wordpress websites.

    Richard,

    Things seem a bit confusing at start so just to say: I was exactly in your place 3 years ago. Had not the slightest idea how to start with this WP thing. Took me few days just to place it on the server. But within short time, you will get hold of it.

    Few basic steps i would suggest.

    1. Buy hosting (you don't want to use wordpress.com for the reasons stated above). I think Aussie recommended Siteground and i second that. Not just due to their performance but also cause they have by far the best support. For people who are really not techy like us, this is a huge help cause they can do a lot. So buy their shared hosting - it should be enough for now.
    2. Ask them to install WP on the server. They will do everything needed.
    3. Go to your domain registrar and update the DNS to the server.
    4. Login yoursite.com/wp-admin
    5. Pick a template you like (there are plenty free ones, or you can get a preimum paid one).
    6. Install it (just the simple way through WP panel, no need to start with FTP (filezilla) at the moment.
    7. Now play with it a bit. learn how to post. how to set up the home page you like. menus. etc.

    After you do this you will see that things are really not that complected.

    Side note: since you already started with Wix i assume you have some plan in terms of niche, content, main sections etc. If not, then make some diagram of how you wish the site structure to be. What will be the idea behind it. What value it will bring to visitors.

    Good luck!

    A year ago, a friend got his site deleted from blogger without notice. Probably for the same reasons and I say probably because Google/Blogger didn't care to explain why it was removed. And the site was not spam and had custom domain name.

    Immediate get a plugin for security (I am partial to WP Cerber) but search for a thread here for recommendations as a few are listed.

    Early on you will want to move the admin login away from the default location (most of the better security plugins will help with this)...and then like others have suggested, just start using it. Tons of help here at the GPWA if you get stuck or have questions.

    Hi Rick, thanks but I don't understand what you mean regarding the admin login being moved away?
    any chance you could please elaborate?

    Thanks for contributing.

    Universal means that you move the login page to site.com/abc , instead of the usual site.com/wp-admin

    Personally i use All In One WP Security - very simple for setting and give many options, including move of the login page. Anyway, get started first, then you will get to which plugins needed and such.
