So, registering my own domain name…I watched Professor Seslow’s video and followed his instructions step by step. I was pretty excited, but still not settled on a domain name.
I looked at the list of domain names I had chosen for my blog and thought, meh! 😕 I guess I wasn’t dedicated to those domain names I chose because I still didn’t know what I really wanted to use my new website for. 😫
But first things first, I decided to see if the domain names I had chosen were even available. So, one by one I gave them a go…and none of them were available. 😯
For some reason, I wasn’t worried because there was a domain name I had in mind that I was sure would be available…”SankofaTalk”. So, I typed it in to see if it was available, and voila, it was! 😃
Before committing to it, I thought of a few more domain names that I thought sounded catchy, but all of them were taken, so I decide to continue on with “SankofaTalk”. Hey, at least this step is complete…making progress…baby steps! 😃
After securing my domain name, I continued following Prof. Seslow’s steps in the video to set up my web hosting account. This process was pretty simple, but when I typed in my domain name, it wouldn’t load. I tried and tried again…it just wouldn’t work…it was Sunday after midnight, I was sleepy but determined to get it working…but no luck! 😩
Frustrated, I felt defeated and emailed Prof. Seslow for help. When I woke up later that day, Prof. Seslow said it was likely a typo. I typed it in, and it worked, my domain name with my website loaded…success, thanks to Prof. Seslow! I played around with my new website that I still don’t know what I’m going to use it for, but I felt accomplished. 😃
