Event Details

Up and Running: Web Hosting and Domains - Online Class

You’ve taken a few HTML or CSS classes and you’re thinking: now what? How do I get this stuff up on the Web? We’re here to help.

This livestream will guide you through the steps to setting up a domain and hosting for the first time. We’ll review some best practices and upload our files to the server using an FTP client so that we can get your site live!

1) Domains: purchasing and configuring a new domain
2) Hosting: purchasing and configuring a new host
3) Mapping your domain: configure your DNS Nameserver settings
4) FTP: uploading an HTML project to your new server

Prerequisites: None

Before We Start:

Install an FTP Client. We’ll be using Transmit. There’s a free trial for the first 5 days, and then after that it’s only $34. Get it here: Alternatively, you can use a free FTP client like The same general principles either way.
