The course will run over four two-hour sessions (14:00–16:00) in the first week in January. There will be a limit of 15 people in the class and the cost will be $90 for members and $120 for non-members.
Bring your laptop along so you can do things on the days. The course will be interactive.
You should get information on how to connect to the web-space provided by your internet service provider (ISP).
I also suggest that you download FileZilla or some similar file transfer protocol (FTP) program. Also get a language aware text editor notepad++ and Jedit are two I have used. A language aware editor prompts you in you coding and checks the code as you type. The latter editor is available on lots of platforms including Windows and Mac.
There will be a section on uploading databases for which you will need to know how to access Cpanel and PHPmyAdmin. This will be discussed in an earlier session, so you will be able to find out what is needed then.

You can find plenty more hosting services using Google or other search engines. As a general guide, with hosting services you get what you pay for.
