This was obviously part of a large course and they didn't even try to portray it properly. Just made a section and uploaded them.

Really good course for a basic understanding of how domains and hosting's work. Explanations are clear and simple. Highly recommended for bingers.

Snazzy16 August 2020

It not only explains how domain names and stuff works, but also shows you how to register your domain name step by step on GoDaddy so simply that even a 10 year old could follow along. Even gave a quick overview of different types of hosting and introduced the Cloud all in simple easy-follow-along words.

Really good course for a basic understanding of how domains and hostings work. Explanations are clear and simple. Minus - It is speaking just about GoDaddy web but ... it is good for me I want to use their service for starting my page. I`m glad to watch the course. Thanks, YouAccel Training!

Before now, I was fairly familiar with domain name registration and website hosting process. but this course has made it clearer, exposing to me better ways to go about it and for my privacy and the security of my website. Also, I now understand the concept of cloud hosting and how it differs from the regular traditional hosting service. i am very grateful for this course because I am working on my startup e-commerce website. Now i know how to go about what I really want (A cloud hosting). Once again, a big thanks to the instructor and to Udemy. God Bless kind Regards Favour Onemu

The Only Reason I am Giving 1.5 less rating , Cause this course was in English, It Should have in Hindi As well .

MANOJ16 May 2020

very helpful course for understanding the basics of hosting and someone new to know the hosting strategies. But need to explore more information on cloud hosting/platforms.

Shafin15 May 2020

It was a pretty good explanation of domain names and hosting concepts. The narration could have been more systematic and clear.

I liked the concept being taught about the internal complexities of getting a domain name and services related to it. Very useful information to have under your belt considering the great reach internet has.
