In order for you to own your URL, you need to register it. You can register the one you find available with Kionic, the company the class will be using to host our websites. You must have a service host your site so that you have space on their servers to keep your code and images. Most hosting services also provide other things like email addresses and blogs.
You don’t have to register your URL with Kionic, but that is the only hosting service for which I will provide support.
For those of you who choose to go with Kionic, go to http://kionic.com/cuny and go through the purchase process.
