Task 7: Open a web hosting account

It’s time to begin the implementation phase! If you have done all of the previous tasks well, you should have a clear idea of what you are trying to accomplish and what it will cost. If a quiet voice in the back of your head says you are not quite ready, review any of the planning tasks that need a second look. When your stomach says “yes”, it’s time to jump!

To complete this task…

Assuming that you have planned your budget and compared vendors, grab the credit card and open your hosting account. If you feel unsure how to do this, ask another member of your learning team to help you with the process.

If the hosting plan you selected includes free registration on a domain name, you may need to take care of that at the same time, unless the vendor gives you a credit that can be applied to a later registration.

Keep records of what you spend! It may be tax-deductible depending on the purpose of the site.
