Juan reached the end of his online course program. His family was so proud of him. Juan's wife wanted to throw a party to celebrate Juan's online graduation together with all of his family, and began planning the special event.
As for invitations, Juan suggested that she hold off on that. "I have a couple ideas on my own," he said. "Something to make a really big splash!"

Juan registered for his own domain name, www.juangraduatesfromcollege.com. Once in possession of the domain, Juan approached a local Internet service provider (ISP) to host the domain for 12 months.

Juan just smiled and accepted the praise and attention of his family, promising his boss that he would think about it another day.
