Welcome to the Rapid Purple Blog, featuring the latest webmaster related news from around the internet – such as updates from various hosting providers regarding their infrastructure and/or new offerings and services. To go along with this you can also find the latest coupons and discounts from popular hosting providers and domain name registrars such as GoDaddy, 1&1, HostGator, UK2 Group, Namecheap, SingleHop, and many more.

Once you have your hosting and domain name established you will also find a large variety of tutorials aimed at helping you get a better grasp on different languages and tasks associated with being a webmaster and running your own website. For starters, many of you who are taking college courses will most likely encounter programming in C within on of your entry level classes. I have a great tutorial series aimed specifically for those classes covering many of the Basics in C Programming. You will also find many other interesting tutorials in HTML/CSS, PHP, HTACCESS, Adobe Photoshop, and various other miscellaneous ones – such as turning a webpage into a PDF through the use of Adobe Acrobat Pro.
