I have created a prototype DokuWiki on A2 Hosting and wish to take it to the next level. I have been very satisfied with A2 Hosting so far. However, their general hosting support staff can only help up to a point. I own a domain from NAMECHEAP.com that I now wish to use as my baseURL and Host-based domain name. I have received some general instructions that talk about using CPanel to change the admin domain in A2. I have also been directed to change the DW config file, along with general instructions on how to redirect my NAMECHEAP Domain to an IP address URL at A2 Hosting.
Although I am reasonably astute in IT tech talk (after beginning my career as a systems programmer on an IBM 1401 and IBM 360 and spending 45+ years in the IS/IT field), my current "deep" IT technical skills are not CURRENT.
I would be willing to engage through Paypal for an hourly rate consulting support on how to get my domain assigned to the hosted instance of DW. However, contracting for even 1-2 hours time in not my first contracting rodeo, so to speak.
I need to be sure that the reassignment of the domain works, and I can get Google and other web crawling services to come to my site and make my content available for searching on the Inet (but that is after completing the initial task). I am also open to obtaining support and then if the reconfigure works, paying the individual.
I will be executing all the changes on my A2 host site as well as my domain host. I need a coach who can explain to me at a detailed enough level for me to execute the CPanel and editing changes on DW config files. This is a virtual "shoulder surfing" engagement, not hands on. We could use Zoom shared screen as a tool for synchronous advice.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you reply, please provide enough of an overview of your experience for me to consider followup.
Thanking you in advance...michael
