Today's entry will be a single paragraph because I need to setup a webdomain to host the CodeJourney blog. The process is quite simple, but first a server must be rented to host the webpage. during that process, you will be asked to reqister a domain name. For the registration, I went with godaddy.com because they seemed easy to use their service. However, I think it was oversimplified. I also decided not to signup for the hosting service thru their website. Instead, I choose another company. (more on this later - there was a rational) I ended up having to getting another domain name for that serve. (again, I think that is another topic)
When you separate the registration from the hosting, the dns record needs to be updated with the nameserver. It was a matter of getting it from the hosting company which was provided when I signed up and finding where it goes at the registration company. COPY PASTE UPDATE. easy!! However, I had issue with the second domain that was registered at the hosting company. Either I was impatient and the hosting company was slow updating their nameserver, but it did not match the one I used to point to CodeJourney domain.

Review html code for Codecademy online course. HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is the code that provides the structure for websites.
Hyper Text: They provide access to other web page. also known as hyperlinks.
Markup: a computer language that describes the presentation and structure of text.
Language: communicate instructions to a computer
Elements and sections such as paragraphs, page headers, and website links are identified by tags. In most cases the tags act as opening and closing indicators for each section. Each tag is encased by and angle bracket.
Awesome Tip that Works: for windows Ctrl+R refreshes the page while Ctrl+Shift+R refreshes bypassing the cache. Substitute the Ctrl with Cmd on the Mac.
