What are some incites you have for me to create this site?

I would like to create a website which would allow users to submit an essay. Their essays would be in a timed-environment, and hence, the site should have a countdown timer, which I heard is very heard to implement.

The site should be aesthetically very pleasing, intuitive, and scalable to do more things.

Already, I've registered a domain name, but I haven't gotten it hosted yet. I have no clue which programming language, scripts, etc. to use, or how to go about doing it.

Do you think that godaddy or bluehost is better at hosting this dynamic site for me?

Finally, I heard that wordpress.org has many tools that I could use. How do I test it out? another words, where do I download the compiler or whatever it is that I'll need to play around with it?

Essay site... Hmmmmm

by cmiller5400 In reply to What are some incites you ...

Maybe you should check your word usage... Should be "hard to implement", you're not herding sheep :)

From Merriam Webster :
Incites = to move to action : stir up : spur on : urge on
Insight = the power or act of seeing into a situation

Very funny. It was very late at night (or very early in the morning, depending on how you view it). I meant "...hard to implement."

"your not herding sheep" should be "you're not herding sheep".

your = blonging to you
you're = short for you are

Do you have programming skills?

Creating an interactive blog site is no simple matter; thus if you are an advanced web developer, this may be possible to do. Otherwise, this could take you hundreds of hours to complete.

However, there are services such as blogspot (dot) com which do that already.

I can INCITE a riot by posting inflammatory remarks on Facebook.
As an electronic engineer I have some INSIGHT as to how the hardware in a computer works.

I suggest a sophisticated grammar and spelling checker considering how many contributors to TechRepublic cannot write decent English (or American).

Assuming you're an Electronics Engineer, and not an "Electronic Engineer", your grammar and punctuation are similarly lacking.

Or, I'm completely off base, and you're a Robot operating a Locomotive - in which case your communication skills are quite impressive!

Try something else

Moodle is a good, free tool to use. works on LAMP, WAMP or XAMPP, and is really easy to set-up and run (download from Moodle.org).

If the goal of the site is for users to login and have 30 minutes to write on a given topic, Moodle would be excellent. It is a classroom content delivery system. You would set each essay as a timed test.
