REBarCamp is ‘open source’. That means anyone can host their own REBarCamp!
First of all – let’s make sure you really understand what REBarCamp is and what it takes to Organize an event. Spend a few minutes with “Thoughts on Organizing” or check out our new Google Doc!
Still set on having your own event? Cool! You’ll need a website.
You have 2 options regarding domains and hosting.
If you are familiar with WordPress.org vs WordPress.com this is very similar.
OPTION #1: REBarCamp.com/YourName
We’re built on Multisite (the new version of WordPressMU) so we can create a site for you and host it.
You will be admin, can add others as you see fit, upload your logo, and have complete control of content, plugins, etc.
Here’s a sample site: http://rebarcamp.com/hamster
The cost? Free (really) Just keep everything within the spirit of REBarCamp – ok?
OPTION #2: REBarCampAnyCity.com
This is where you own it, host it, manage it.
Go get your own domain name, setup your own hosting and create the site you want.
We’re totally cool with control freaks 😉
Hosting Note: If you already have a hosting account, check to see if you can add on another domain.
With some accounts there is no charge.
If not, here are two hosting companies that I use Bluehost and GreenGeeks that do. (affiliate links)
If Option #1 is something you want – here’s your form…
