Getting started with your own website


  1. Check domain availability – I recommend Pair Domains.
  2. Register your domain.
  3. Explore web hosting options
    1. Amazon Web Services – provides a free 12 month trial
    2. Pair Networks – I’d suggest a basic account, you can point multiple domains to the same hosting account and have the option of using their software installation manager to install various content management systems including WordPress and Drupal.

Note down the IP addresses provided by your web hosting provider, as you’ll need to login to your domain provider and provide the IP addresses.

Your chosen web hosting provider will provide instructions on how to point the domain to the web hosting account.
