Serious = Process focused on usability
Before we get to that, you just buit a “web site”. Now we need to put it up on the web.
Servers: Hosting + Domains

COMPLETE IN LAB

Process – Many flavors
What are the similarities in these examples?
What is missing? UIX. User-centered design process.
Well, this is the part where I show you some awful, terrible websites.

LAB 05: Process
If you do NOT have a domain/host**:
1. Buy DOMAIN FIRST
2. Now buy Hosting. you have a domain already when you sign up. Get nameservers.
3. Name servers switched.
4. Test FTP
**Optional. you can get domain/hosting from the same company if you are more comfortable

IF you currently have domain/host:
1. Get your FTP information
2. Get reacquainted with your server
4. Upload your HTML files – TEST

FTP Demo.

Process:
1. Gathering Information: Purpose, Main Goals, and Target Audience (Requirements)
