Registering my own domain and Web hosting acct set-up

Me thinking, is my domain name too deep? Is my web hosting account gonna work or naw? 😳

So, registering my own domain name…I watched Professor Seslow’s video and followed his instructions step by step.Β  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! πŸ˜•Β  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.Β  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”.Β  So, I typed it in to see if it was available, and voila, it was! πŸ˜ƒ

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”.Β  Hey, at least this step is complete…making progress…baby steps! πŸ˜ƒ

Me making progress…making baby steps! πŸ˜ƒ

After securing my domain name, I continued following Prof. Seslow’s steps in the video to set up my web hosting account.Β  This process was pretty simple, but when I typed in my domain name, it wouldn’t load.Β  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.Β  When I woke up later that day, Prof. Seslow said it was likely a typo.Β  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. πŸ˜ƒ

Me feeling accomplished. πŸ˜ƒ
