About The Program:

In this program, you will learn actionable steps to obtain a domain, set up hosting, and launch your website securely. You will also receive a set of tools I use for all my client sites to secure, automate, and establish a foundation for a well-constructed and secure website.

Courses In The Program:

In the first course, students will launch a website in minutes rather than weeks or months.

Once a website is online it is essential to take steps to secure it from hackers.

In the next two courses, students will secure a site and automate repetitive tasks like updating your site and backing it up to the cloud of their choice.

These are all essential actionable, step-by-step lessons that can be performed with ZERO coding experience.

Course Add-Ons:

Each course contains lessons that are chock full of video, text, links, and downloads to help you on your journey.

With all of these tools and following along in the course, you can build and secure your own site FAST with no experience and no additional initial cost other than the cost of your domain name. If you decide to keep your site the only cost you’ll have to pay is hosting and that will be around $10 a month for most students after the free trial provided by Cloudways hosting.

Why Choose This Program:

Most programs out there are designed to help beginners build a beginner website. The steps in this program allow you to build a scalable website that is secured and compliant to do business. With this program, you can have a custom domain hosting your own custom-designed site in minutes and once your business is ready to grow you can easily scale your hosting and build out your website instead of having to find a new solution completely. 

Who This Program Is For:

This program is for anyone that wants to build a scalable website without spending tons of hours learning everything from the ground up. We recommend this program for a number of different "types" including:

  1. Business owners or their webmasters need a new website that can be well designed and secured while also not spending tons of money monthly on hosting or platforms like Wix or Squarespace.
  2. Website owners that have outgrown their current website platforms like Wix or Squarespace and need something that will grow with their needs.
  3. Students looking to learn how to build a website from scratch without running into issues and time consuming hurdles.
