Tell Me What You’re Thinking

Your Wordcamp planning committee would like to extend a huge thanks to everyone who made our second event a success! From OfficePort to Wordnik to each one of our attendees, it couldn’t have been done without you.

Please take a moment to provide feedback while the whole thing is fresh in your memory so we can improve next year. If you’ll have us back, that is!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  1. THIS HAS GOT TO BE A GIMMICK. WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?
    • Well, it’s not, really; but we do hope you love us and that you’ll tell your friends about us. If you don’t love us, we’re hoping you’ll tell us how we can improve.
  2. I DON’T KNOW WHICH DOMAIN I WANT TO USE WITH MY FREE ACCOUNT. CAN I CHANGE IT LATER?
    • We don’t actually sell or register domain names at this time, so changing your domain is a simple configuration change which you can do at any time. If you need to buy a domain name we recommend www.namecheap.com
  3. WHAT DOES “ACCOUNT NAME” OR “SITE NAME” MEAN?
    • We’ll create a account.wpengine.com subdomain that let’s you access your site immediately, and we use the account name internally to help support you. It just has to be unique, between 3 and 14 characters, and cannot have a numeric digit as the first character in the name.
