The Very Very Basics of Domains & Web Hosting
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, has more hobbies than can dance on the head of a pin, and loves Waffle House about eighteen times more than you.

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.
