    Afzal Farhad United Arab Emirates This is an excellent course. I started the " Building a web Business" course first , however because of the constant reference to this course, I decided to find this course and complete it first before continuing with the business web business course. Now I can go back without having to worry about or wonder about what I still have to learn about creating a web site. Chris is excellent in taking you by the hand and showing you step by step what needs to be done. Thanks. 2015-05-18 08:05:33

    Mohamed Rafique Moosa South Africa Thank YOU for this interesting course 1, Be familar with details like browser, url, server, host, registrar, search engines, website and webpage 2. Choose a domain name, that is easy to remember, short and preferably use ,com, as it globally common. 3. You have to purchase a domain name from a Registrar and pay for it, like godaddy.com. They can even host it for a fee. 4. If you choose a different Hosting account, like Hostgator or find a good other hosting account, fill in domain name & pay the fee for the period of time selected. 5. Your domain registrar, allocates your "name server", which links the registrar to the hosting account, 6. The hosting account must have the same "name server" from the registrar account, which must be copied in its page 7. The registrar could also be the hosting account, than it is not necessary to submit the "name server". 8. To sum up, you register a domain name, select a hosting company and submit the domain "name server", if different accounts. 9 Thank you Chris 2015-05-07 23:05:42

    Sally Leslie Spain I thought that this course was excellent. I never thought I would be able to do something like this and now I am hooked. I think Chris explains things very clearly and always with a sense of humour, which makes it easier to learn. 2015-04-24 18:04:50
