It’s been almost two months now that I am using Bluehost‘s hosting and I am really satisfied by the services they offer. One of these is the SSL service for the mail accounts they give along with the hosting services. For those of you who don’t know what SSL is, you can read about it here.

After I created a mail account using my domain name, the first thing I did was to configure it using Outlook 2007. I properly configured my mail account to use SSL using the following settings.

  • Account Type: IMAP
  • Incoming Mail Server: box***.bluehost.com (*** is the server number given by bluehost)
  • Outgoing Mail Server: box***.bluehost.com
  • Check for the outgoing (SMTP) server to require authentication using the same settings as incoming server. (more…)

But last month I read a post, ‘Why make Site Prototypes?’ by Greg Wolejko. After reading this post, I thought to myself that not only is this post real educative, but also, it is like a valuable contribution, a fun and cool way of giving the world something that others can benefit from, like Open Source.

Going to WordPress.org and downloading the latest 2.6 build was the only choice I was left with now, for a number of reasons:

  • I had to start a blog myself; ‘Ain’t no stopping me now!’.
  • I believed myself to be technically sound enough to host my own blog (although WordPress makes the job a piece of cake!).
  • WordPress was the obvious reason because of its usability, dynamics and */read text between brackets of point two/* (for the fear of sounding repetitive).
  • Hosting is real cheap these days.   (more…)
