IT Course Hosting Requirements

In selected courses you will build applications and be required to deploy them to a web host. As such, it is required that you purchase web hosting space where you can deploy applications and a domain name for accessing the deployed applications.

 

The “Deluxe” plan, selecting “Windows® with Plesk” is the required plan. You are responsible for purchasing the plan and sustaining it during this course. The required plan and domain name can be viewed and purchased here: http://www.secureserver.net/?prog_id=526849.

If you already have an active “Deluxe” plan, having selected “Windows® with Plesk” you do not need to re-purchase it for this course, as that plan can be used for multiple courses simultaneously.

When selecting a domain name you should choose something that is professional, as your domain name will be shared with others which may include potential employers. The following formats are suggested (listed in order of preference) with the top-level domain (TLD) of either .com or .net.

  1. {firstname}{lastname}.{TLD} such as maryjones.com for someone that is named Mary Samantha Jones.
  2. {lastname}{firstname}.{TLD} such as jonesmary.com for someone that is named Mary Samantha Jones.
  3. {firstname}{middlename}{lastname}.{TLD} such as marysamanthajones.com for someone that is named Mary Samantha Jones.
  4. {firstname}{lastname}{number}.{TLD} such as maryjones21.com for someone that is named Mary Samantha Jones.
