“Setting the Stage.” This class is part of a series that offers an introduction to self-hosted WordPress as the backbone of an artists website to maximize on design and feature customization. In this part, you’ll first be guided through buying your own domain name and web hosting for your website – two crucial elements in order to be able to get your website up! The instructor will be available to help with any troubleshooting throughout. Then, you’ll be guided through installing self-hosted WordPress on your web host.
If none of this makes sense to you, then this part was made for you!
Welcome, one and all! 😀
(IMPORTANT DISCLOSURE: I recommend doing your own research into domain name registrars and web hosts, so please feel free to do that before the class. Not every host is as reputable, ethical, or economical. Due to the purchasing nature of this workshop, the instructor is not to be held responsible for the host that you do end up choosing, but is willing to give recommendations.)
