26. Setting Up Your Own Server for Launch

Published 18 days ago

To get your website living on a domain such as `chriscourses.com`, we'll need to cover two essential topics:

  1. Hosting
  2. Domain Registration

Hosting refers to where your site will live. You can host a site on any computer, as long as it has an IP address connected to the internet. Although you can host a site on your own computer, it's unwise to do so—once your computer turns off, so does your website, meaning, no one else can access it until you turn your computer back on.

This episode will teach you how to create a remote Digital Ocean server that is always on, meaning, your site will only go down if you have a programming error rather than if you turn off your laptop / desktop.
