  1. i am using Namesecure as my registrar. I see no option to use "CNAME" as a method to forward…..only DNS options. am i missing something?

  2. The cost is very important to know, thank you Jacob Robbins for the awesome explanation!! 😉
    I'm wondering now if I have uploaded my website and it has a blog content and I need writing a post per month even uploaded a new picture into my portfolio section because I have got a new customer so I would like to show it on my page, what should I do to upload this new contend? Could it be deleted all my page by 1 hour while I put this contend into my IDE (sublime text ) Any idea? 🙂

  3. Thanks for the very clear intro. Interesting possibilities. I'm getting ready to host a small static website. What about security of the website after posting?  I'd like to have links to YouTube for example. Do you have a primer like this for what the files you uploaded in the example should contain and how they should be prepared? Thanks again.
