In this summer session, you'll learn how to set up, configure, secure, and maintain your own web server. This web server can be used to host your very own website, using your own domain name!

Details include:

Setup of a Linux Virtual Private Server (VPS)

Installation of server software: Apache, Database, Scripting

Server security using a firewall

Server updates and maintenance

Registering a domain name

SSL certificate installation

Development of a simple database driven website

Please note: There are OPTIONAL additional costs for this session. There are ongoing costs associated with hosting your own web server. The cost for a domain name is approximately $12/year, the cost to have a server is approximately $3.50/month, the cost for an SSL certificate is approximately $10/year. These fees will be collected through the domain and hosting provider used in this camp as we are not associated with either. These additional costs are OPTIONAL and not required for this session. Alternatively, students can still learn about this process and not incur any fees associated with outside hosting and can simply use our shared server.
