Because of this, the HostingHosting A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web.

We continue with the analysis of the best solution for the WordPress Hosting Live project, the meetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. for professionals in the world of hosting and WordPress.

@javiercasares has been talking with @_dorsvenabili about the best solution for the WordPress Hosting Live broadcast.

  1. The Hosting team’s talks that are going to be directed to “end users” could be given within the Learn WordPress Meetups, always focused with a didactic spirit. If anyone is interested in giving a talk they can talk to the Learn WordPress team or contact one of the Team Reps who will facilitate contact with the team.
  2. Hosting team talks aimed at “hosting professionals” could be done through a new Meetup channel. It is pending to pass access to the WordPress team, but I have the Meetup WordPress Hosting created.
    In the coming days the Community team will be asked to join the WordPress Meetup Pro.
  3. We would use a channel within the WordPress YouTube specifically for Hosting. For broadcasting we could use StreamYard or similar.
    It remains to talk to the Community team to see if we can make use of the channel or create our own channel.

@javiercasares will talk with the Community team to find the best solutions that the rest of the teams are currently using and thus have a common offer for all.

The proposal for the talks would be to make an introduction of 5-10 minutes by the presenters, then the talk / presentation of about 50 minutes and finally a space of about 30 minutes for questions.

The goal will be to make a monthly presentation in English, with the possibility of having interspersed presentations in other languages (@javiercasares has shown interest in making some in Spanish).

WordPress Hosting Page/Site

The Hosting team has made a proposal to the Meta team on how the new Hosting page could be updated. The goal is to propose a simpler and more standardized system when proposing a new WordPress hosting provider and that everyone has the same options.

This system is intended to facilitate the analysis and approval, which could be done by a sub team within the Hosting Team with people who are and know the world of hosting but do not work directly in any hosting company and thus avoid conflicts of interest.

In a next step the proposal would be passed to @chanthaboune for a first review and the team would be at MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress.’s disposal in case we can help more in this project.
