What's NewMay 1st, 2017
We’re starting to roll out the websites to eligible students. Who’s eligible? Folks who’ve recent signed up with yearly memberships are eligible – and if you choose a .com or .org domain name we’ll buy it for you – and any of you Guinea Pig members who got in early before we began to extend this offer will also get free WordPress hosting, although you’ll have to buy your own domains.
If you’re eligible and you’re interested in getting a website, please take the WordPress Learner’s Permit course first.
So how do you get a website? Well first you need to choose a domain!
Come up with a name you like, and then check to make sure it’s available. Try searching for it on a website like DomainsPricedRight.com. If the search result tells you that the site you’ve entered has already been taken, try again with another name. Keep trying until you’ve found something available that you like.
Once you’ve done that, send us an email with your domain name and we’ll get you set up! Within a few days you’ll get a reply with your WordPress login. (If you’re a Guinea Pig member and you’ve already bought a domain, we’ll have to take a few extra steps to guide you through the process of getting set up – please let us know in the note that you were a Guinea Pig and we’ll tell you what you’ll need to do on your end.)
We’ll have much more news for you soon but we wanted to officially start this process for you. Please let us know if you have any questions! You can reply directly to this email.
