Where will you store your web pages after you graduate from college?

To earn the badge, you will research different possibilities, taking notes on the advantages and disadvantages of various options. Once you have chosen the best provider(s), you will purchase a domain name and configure your new web server account. Finally, you will create a miniature web presence for yourself on this server. Eventually, this miniature web presence will evolve into the entry page for your own business and/or personal online portfolio.
