Creating and Publishing a Website
Tasty Website Info

About the meeting
We'll begin with a step-by-step presentation by Steven on how to create and publish a website from scratch, using GoDaddy's Website Builder tool. Adam will then lead a discussion of the vital plumbing of websites including: Domain Name registration (and privacy), the Zone Table (A, CNAME, MX, TXT records), Cpanel file management, Add-on Domains, Subdomains, and SSL Security Certificates. We'll use NameCheap as our registrar example, Siteground as our web host, and MX Toolbox to look up all sorts of juicy info about our domain and websites.

We are starting a new tradition of each of us bringing some potluck food to share. We will provide the plates, glasses, and utensils, and some food. Please aim for bringing healthy food, as many of us are struggling to eat healthier stuff (but don't make it so healthy that it doesn't taste good!). Thank you. We will also have a "birthday" cake to celebrate BNUG's 32nd anniversary!

Please join us on our Meetup site
You can access an archive of BNUG's past meetings and links to meeting video recordings, slides, notes, etc. here.

(We plan to videotape this meeting for later viewing and possibly broadcast.)
