I set up XERTE in XAMPP (local host¬), created some learning content and it is working very well.
I now want to install XERTE on a public web server so as to share my content with the public. I do not have my own|organisation website. So, some people have advised me to buy a domain name and pay for web hosting. Is this the right approach? Is there another way of doing it?

Much depends on whether you need whatever you are sharing to be from your own domain. You can export what you have created via xampp and upload and unzip to any online web space without needing that web space to host the xerte installation. You can upload to learning environments like Moodle if you have access to do so. You can buy your own domain as you describe and set up a xerte installation there or some of us in the xerte development team offer individual accounts on shared installations paid for on an annual basis.

Hi,
I'd like to do the same. Could you point me to a step by step guide on how to install xerte in the webspace which comes with my domain/hosting package?
The idea is that I could install Xerte there and share projects so people can use them without my future involvement.
Thanks!

There's an installation guide in the documentation folder inside the download and various recordings on the web where I've demonstrated installation e.g. www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1FkRgjfb0M

But too many people look for the quickest and cheapest way of installing Xerte without regard to maintenance and support and contribution back to the Xerte project. There are hosting providers now that include Xerte as part of 1 click installation options. However they do not contribute to the project in any way and some aspects of a fully working Xerte installation cannot be automated anyway.

Some of us directly involved in the Xerte project provide various hosting options from low cost individual accounts on a shared and fully maintained installation to internal or external hosting of organisational installations. Obviously none of that is free but contributes directly to continued Xerte development.

Thanks! I didn't realise there were hosting options offered by the developers. If I wanted to go for that option, where could I find more information?
