As you know, this Master requires the student to be able to apply all the knowledge learned in a project that is a real, live, professional website that will enable you to attract real visitors to make an impression, make sales, build an audience, use as a CV to get a job etc.
To create this WordPress website you will need a hosting account and a domain.
Web hosting is a service where a provider allows you to store all kinds of files so that they can be accessed over the Internet.
It is the place where the files of your website will be stored.
A web domain or Internet domain is a unique name that identifies a website on the Internet.
I.e. Facebook's domain is www.facebook.com, Google's domain is www.google.com
My domain is scottmax.com
You will need both to take the course and to do the assignments.
And for us to teach you properly with our course and for you to graduate your course, we need you to get your hosting account and domain here, where we have a deal with Hostpapa to get you over 70% Off.
Click here to have a look, later on in the module we have a step-by-step tutorial get your hosting account and domain.
In the introductory module, we will have a section dedicated to helping you find your ideal domain name as well as helping you define your website, business model. (And yes, we consider getting a job a business model)
A basic hosting like the one you will need costs between 5$ and 6$ per month (usually, hosting costs 20-30$ a month or more). A domain name usually costs $12 per year.
Our partnered hosting provider gives you the domain for free when you sign up and a very nice deal for 1 or 2 years of hosting (part of our lovely deal for our students).
In short, no. We will teach you how to set up your WordPress website properly in module 1 to a professional, fast-loading, and secure standard. All with free plugins which you can opt to pay for the professional versions if you want more features later on.
But for the hosting account, no.
Just get the hosting account for at least a year and your included domain name.
The prices you see are exclusive for MAX Business School students.
Disclosure: We are affiliates of Hostgator and may earn a small comission by sending you to their site and educating you in how to build a wordpress website hosted by them.
IMPORTANT: Make sure you are buying the hosting via our affiliate links posted here, elsewhere in this course or on our website at scottmax.com.
It is a core part of our business model and it's why we can offer a great education at no cost to you.
It really helps support our cause of making excellent quality education accessible to as many people around the world as possible.
Hostpapa is our number one recommendation for beginners and that's why we have chosen to work with them throughout the course. They are extremely cheap, have great quality, and are super easy to learn with.
Perfect for our course.
All our tutorials are using Hostgator so that's why we require our students to take our course using them as their hosting provider. That way we are able to assist our students at scale as well as students being more able to assist each other in our community.
We strongly recommend that you opt for paid hosting and getting your own real domain, it is an investment you make in your education and it really costs very little money.
It's only $2 to $6 a month, which you can easily spend on Starbucks, dinner with friends, a drink, a Netflix subscription, or the gym.
Plus, it's far cheaper than the 3,000$ to 80,000$ you would be spending to get a less practical academic education in the same subjects at a traditional business school.
Having your own hosting means having your own private space on the Internet, where you can develop your business or your personal brand!
Plus, if you are not satisfied, you have up to 45 days to cancel and get your money back.
HOW DO I LOGIN?
There is no need to login anymore, we've made our new platform more freely accessible.
Enjoy the course!
What if I already have a domain name and hosting??
Then enjoy the course!
However, to submit assignments and get certified we need you to be working with hostgator!
Thanks for the help all the resources provided for us to complete the course. However, I would like to know if it is allowed to be having the domain without paying for it.
does it mean that if I already have a domain name and host which I didn't get from hostgator I will not be accessed or certified at the end of the course?
did u get the certification even if u didnt get the host and domain from another provider ?
( i can't even get main from hostgator it's apears that there is some probleme ... )
Martin, Max created all this course for free and it is an awesome course what he asks in return is to sign up with hostgator using his affiliate links, he gets little commissions and I think he uses that to maintain the site and run everything as you see it. So it's better we support him because so many people around the world have benefited from this.
Yeah, I'm agreed with you
Yes I completely agree with you.
Honestly and I thank him for this great opportunity. God bless
I am in total agreement. What we will pay for will be ours forever apart from supporting Max to continue the good work and make this platform accessible to all.
Well spoken, friend! We ought to give a hand of support to Max for, at least, his generosity. Thanks Max for being there for us.
Should I do the hosting before starting on the course or can do it on due course?

I'm really excited about this opportunity however I cannot buy the hosting account because we don't have the access to PayPal here and my credit card works only locally so I cannot buy anything from the internet if it's not from my country

This can't limit you. If you have the sum of money to buy it, find a friend of yours who have international card and purchase it.

Hi. Just want to ask which plan is needed for the course? Hatchling, Baby or Business? Thank you
Hi! Hatching is enough! Also its the best for beginners!
Hello Max, Hope you are doing well,

Hello to you all,
I am Mohamed Hassan, founder and chairman for Dynamic Enterprise which is clearance and forwarding agency operating in Somalia, with partnership transitor in Ethiopia an Djibouti.
my question is " based on the nature of my company which is the best domain?
Something branded, memorable, easy to spell, and a .com
hi so your advisable hostgator package type is "hatchling" right?
Hi Scott, I guess I can't purchase a new hosting plan with Hostgator. I had a website a year ago that I had paid for a 4 year hosting plan, I prefer using my existing plan because I simply can't afford another plan. Is that okay if I use a different host for now?
Unfortunately we only accept hostgator!
Why I should buy domain name if the website like google blog will provide free domain? what is benefit if already they provide free one?
Then the domain is not yours and the hosting is also not yours.
I would not recommend this option.
I cant afford the cost. Can I just continue without using the your host
We only accept Hostgator!
Can I study without domain?
About the web hosting plan do they need to charge me for the next 36 months or just charge me on monthly basis?
It's all paid upfront. You can choose between a 1,2 or 3 year plan!
