The Very Very Basics of Domains & Web Hosting

78a7e62a seeable

Taught by Jonathan Soma

Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He co-founded the Brainery, is the sciencey half of Masters of Social Gastronomy, and plans on getting married to Waffle House. In his more droll moments he is a tragic sellout to higher ed as a professor of data journalism at Columbia University's journalism school.

This is an old class! Check out the current classes, or sign up for our mailing list to see if we'll offer this one again.

This class might be over, but get first dibs on new sessions and brand-new classes by signing up on our ultra-rad mailing list.

Maybe you took our HTML class and are looking to connect the dots on hosting your own web site? Or you run a super rad Tumblr and would like to move on over to your own domain name? Or are just awesome and curious and want to dig a bit deeper into the Web?

We'll take a look at the domain-and-web-server setup process from start to finish, also touching on other fun things like one-click installs, .com-alternatives, nameservers, Google Analytics, .htaccess, shared hosting, and plenty else.

You'll need to bring your laptop! We'll also each be buying a domain name (if you don't have one) and setting up hosting, so you'll need to bring a credit card and feel comfortable making online purchases. Those costs aren't included in the cost of the class, but you shouldn't end up spending more than $10.
