This course is all about teaching you how to setup your first web hosting account. In "How To Setup Web Hosting" I show you step by step how to get your domain, get your hosting account and get them to "talk" to each other, how to configure the domain and hosting settings and much more.
In the first part of the course I show you the simple process of claiming and obtaining a domain name and how to configure it to associate with your hosting account.
Next, I show you how to setup your first Web Hosting account and add your new domain to your hosting.
I then walk you through the various settings of your hosting account and show you different relevant configurations and changes, etc, you can do within your account.
Last, I teach you how to use an FTP client to do your first basic uploads and downloads and even some basic edits within your new Hosting Account.
This course is designed for the beginner and no previous experience is necessary. If you're looking for a simple, easy to follow, step-by-step guide on getting your first web hosting setup and configured...and even using FTP for the first time, then this course is for you!
