Hello! Today, I want to use arrays to improve our shopping cart and find out more about them as we go a long! This post is going to be split into two: Part 1 and 2. You want read them in parts or in full. There are basically two types of arrays in PHP: numerically indexed arrays – where indices start at zero by default and non-numerically indexed arrays – where the keys can be set to whatever you deem meaningful. Let us start with numerically indexed arrays:

How to find a web hosting service is what I am going to talk about today. I am finally at the end of this wonderful challenge! There is a lot I could say about it as far as experience is concerned but instead, I will show you in images – after all, they speak louder than words, right? Let us first say I had a blast(no pun intended) doing this!

This challenge requires whoever is taking it to get a website up and running.

After you have made a sound decision on how much you want to spend, head on to the registrar’s site of choice and peruse around for packages that fit your needs. You simply enter your preferred name and they will notify you if it is available or already taken.
