Well, I finally did it, I selected a web host for my growing list of domain names! It took me some time and research to decide, and I decided on Hostgator because of the price, good online reviews, and the ability to host unlimited domains on a reasonably priced plan.
Now that I’ve made the commitment, learning how to use Hostgator and turn my domain names into something for public view feels rather daunting! I’ve already had a couple of live online chats with Hostgator support staff, not because of anything they did or didn’t do, but because I’m starting almost at the bottom of the barrel. I thought that my blogging, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter self would have a leg up here, but wow, there are so many ways to design and improve a website!
I’m really looking forward to this project as a learning experience, though! I hope that by the time I get to library science grad school, I’ll be a lot more comfortable with building websites. Be on the lookout for lesleylooper.com to go live in the weeks ahead!
