Domain names course
The domain names course was taught through the courses mailing list in June/July 2004.
This course is a kind of a buyer's guide: what should you look for in a
domain name, where should you buy it, what can you do with it?
A domain name is a unique Internet identifier like "linuxchix.org",
"puzzling.org", "google.com", "planet.gnome.org", "hoyts.ninemsn.com.au" and
This course is aimed at people interested or possibly interesting in buying
and using a domain name who do not know much about the process. It should also
be useful for people who aren't interested in having a domain name at the
moment but are curious about the process.
Here are the lessons that were part of this course:
- Why own a domain name?
- Choosing a domain name
- Techie interlude: nameservers
- Registering a domain name
- Choosing a host
Updated lessons will be posted on puzzling.org
