Get Started Mindmap

iStock_000009286768XSmallHere’s my Mindmap for the ‘Getting Started’ module. Mindmaps help keep me more organised! A recap and ‘To Do’ list in one.

So this is a kind of snapshot of the Getting Started tutorials covering ideas on how to find the right domain for you and what works best, how to register your domain, find a hosting account (and why it can make sense to keep them separate). Yeah I know it’s starting to sound technical! IT’S NOT! We can do this!

Plus how to point your domain name at your hosting space and why the free FTP tool Filezilla will come in handy now and in the future.

I would say that this is the ONE area of getting yourself online that scares so many away – the process of buying your domain Name and setting up your hosting account. Once you’ve overcome these tiny hurdles you’ll be on a roll ( and they’re not really hurdles at all when done right, as you’ll quickly see in the video tutorials).

PS: Hover your cursor over the Mind map and hold down your left mouse button to drag the map around the screen or use the zoom in/out option to see all of it. Click the little + icons to open the threads of the Map.

So, don’t procrastinate or put it off! Jump in and find out how to get that Domain Name right now!

    This is a great illustration on how to get yourself organized and on the right path. I probably should’ve had one of these when I first started! Great post!
