About GIBO – Getting Irish Business Online
Getting Irish Business Online (GIBO) is a superb initiative by Google and Blacknight Solutions that facilitates businesses to get a .com, (.eu or .biz) website with free hosting for the first year.
Since 2010, I have delivered training for Limerick City, Clare and North Tipperary Enterprise Boards. The training workshop is ‘hands-on’ – you will be ready to publish your site after the workshop!
Participants firstly register their chosen domain – see youtube video with instructions on the sidebar. The remainder of the workshop is about building your site using the Blacknight Sitebuilder tool.
GIBO Related Testimonial as posted to LinkedIn
“I recently attended an introductory web design and setup course which was run by GIBO and Donncha was the tutor.
It can be a difficult thing these days to come across such dedicated professionalism. Donncha proved not only approachable, but happy to deal with all queries and most of all, was both appreciative and encouraging of all efforts made. All this achieved in the only language I understand … plain English!
The end result is a website setup I am proud of. My thanks to both GIBO for the opportunity to attend and to Donncha for all the sound advice. I look forward to a follow-up course.
I am delighted to have an opportunity to recommend Donncha’s work, and the care and attention he gave in following through. I am more than happy to endorse him.” August 29, 2011
