In the lesson, Zac points to a website "webhostingforstudents.com" when I enter this url, I get a different site

The website I get has a splash page that references web hosting dedicated to Students, blah, blah, blah. Just $25 a Year. I've checked the spelling, made sure it is *...students.COM" and it still comes up with the same URL, I even did a search for the same thing as outlined above and I end up at the splash page ",,,Dedicated to Students....$25 a year" What am I doing wrong or did Zac skip a step?

They just simply updated the look of the website from when the video was shot. Nothing more. Same site.

Sure looks like it. Unfortunate too, it's seems they had a somewhat abrupt parting ways with Zac, the previous wordpress teacher who started this hosting service.
