I'm now on the How to create a website track for Front end developer. On the purchase domain and share hosting lesson.

What is the best way to study on this? Should I wait until I finished learning HTML and CSS for basics or should I go ahead and purchase yearly and monthly? I'm not ready to code yet mostly just follow along with the instructor.

I think my advice to you would be to wait on purchasing a domain. But also take the time to review the video and material associated with it so that it's at least a familiar concept later. You can do the vast majority of all the HTML/CSS courses in the workspace provided or from your local machine. If you don't feel ready to purchase a domain, then absolutely don't do it. That time will come, and when it does, you'll at least have some idea of how to do it and make some informed choices about what hosting services will be best for you.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Yes this really helps, Thank you so much, Jennifer!

I will 100% agree with Jennifer. I would wait for a while to start to buy domains and hosting because you are going to be wasting money if you don't know how to set everything up, or even code in HTML, CSS, and JS. Also like Jennifer said, Treehouse has a ton of different useful tools to help you out with coding, and a ton of the courses that are offered can be done with workspaces.
