A web hosting account is necessary to work with me through the course (we’re learning to build a website and a website needs a host). Hosting must be Linux cPanel-based. If you have a hosting account and aren’t sure what type it is, please ask me. If you need hosting, I highly recommend and personally use HostGator (this is an affiliate link on my site, so I receive a commission if you sign up via the link but you get 20% off with this promotion):
