Signing up for web hosting

In a few weeks, we'll transition from HTML/CSS to creating our Wordpress sites in J105. So that means it's time to purchase our domain names and hosting.

We will purchase this in class Sept. 19 & 20, but feel free to buy yours ahead of time (especially if you want one of your parents to put it on their credit card).

To sign up, go to the MDD hosting web site. Under "hosting" in the top navigation, click on "shared hosting." The Basic plan will suffice for our websites.

When you are ready to pay, use the code WHT50 to get your hosting for half price. Remember you'll be buying hosting and a domain name. The domain name should cost $15/year, and hosting will be $38 for the first year (using the couponcode above).
