Yes - you'll need to have your own domain name and hosting. These will need to be purchased separately by third party providers.
However, inside the course, we'll share who we recommend, and give instructions on how to set them up.
We recommend budgeting an extra $150 NZD to purchase your domain and hosting.
That largely depends on how long it takes you to take action and follow the steps. The videos themselves won't take you longer than a day, but, you'll need implementation time.
We suggest completing the work as you go rather than watching all the videos first.
It's best to watch a video then complete that step before moving on to the next video.
