Creating my website – initial steps.

Each student is required to buy their own domain name and server space (hosting) for this module. Minimum specification:

  1. Your domain name must be OR (other names and suffixes should be discussed with the tutor).
  2. Hosting should be 500MB, have at least one MSQL database, PHP 5 and a secure control panel.

I then filled in the following details appropriately and from this my blog became active.
