    That's wrong and the OS and everything you order has nothing to do with managed or unmanaged..

    Here a little about managed and unmanaged.

    Managed is when the tech's / datacenter would help repair and fix things that the basic person who's renting the server can't fix or install.

    Now you have to remember they won't teach you (meaning they won't hold your hand and you still need to know the basic’s) and repair everything but 99% of the stuff they will. If you want 100% then make sure you find a host that does 100% fully managed and be ready to drop a few hundred down for that.

    Now if you do have skill to fully run a server then you want to go unmanaged. Now remember if you do run into trouble and can't fix something and need help the tech / datacenters can fix it, but you will be changed for it.

    But if your really good and want a more challenging experience go colo…

    is there any way to get a domain name (ex.www.something.com) for free? Or at least not something like www.freewebs.com/something, you know?
    wow both of those links actually work, i didnt think they would.)

    And also, when hosting with these places like godaddy, can you make them with html, or is it like a template?

    The cheapest place i know to get a .com name is http://www.1and1.co.uk (or 1and1.com) Its about £8 or £9 per year, £2 for 2 years for a .co.uk

    Another way for a domain is to have a .tk ending like www.something.tk (free registration) http://www.dot.tk/en/index.html ... better than http://www.webhostingservice.com/myaccountorwebsite/ which is long and baffling.

    Ive heard alot of bad things about godaddy and after chats decided to give them a try before condeming them to hell and i found them quite poor (so do other users, on a related thread the other day for example http://www.webdeveloper.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=114561) .. Honestly im not a refferer but i find http://www.50webs.com one of the best free hosts with no ads and good uptime and good loading speeds

    ok, im not exactly sure how much that would be in dollars.

    thank you for all the info. I'm pretty new to all this (first website). so if I go to the www.dot.tk place and get a domain name, then do i go to like freewebs or 50webs and then enter it somewhere there?

    i was just using godaddy as an example. On 50webs, do they give you templates to use, or can you make a page with html?

    Here's a currency converter, free website and one of the best converters and does most currencies so you can check how each british pound relates to the dollar http://www.xe.com/ucc/

    Anyway no probs, we're all new to something at some point. I would advise you sign up for your hosting account first, so if you sign up to 50webs.com, then sign up for a .tk name and all you do is put in the URL address you want to forward to (on 50webs this is http://youraccountname.50webs.com/ ) and then when you type in your .tk domain it will forward to your 50webs hosted site.

    I dont think 50webs offer templates, ive never checked but try this site as they have some really nice templates http://www.free****************.com/

    You could always drag and drop and create your own site template with a "WYSIWYG" webpage builder, try googling for a free or trial version one or edit a template with dreamweaver/frontpage

    And this free tool i find really useful, handy whether your new or not to webdevelopment. Its a version of notepad (.txt) that you use to alter your html manually without an editor (which you might need to do after useing editors to make it cross compatible and compliant html), if you view a html code in normal notepad it can get confusing sometimes but this notepad 2 tool highlights your code in different colours and makes it much easier for you to edit your coding. http://www.flos-freeware.ch/notepad2.html

    ok thank u for all your help.
    i didnt really want a template, i wanted to make the website with html, so thats good.

    and so you just download that flos thing, and its kind of like notepad, but better for html, cause of the highlighting and stuff?

    Yea its totally freeware and i find it extremely useful, highlighting parts of code in different colours just one reason but it has so many extras like word wrap, encoding type, etc etc and uses hardly any system resources at all

    Get your hosting in place first (50webs.com free account) ... Then get a .tk name ... when you register your .tk name it will ask where you want to redirect to, your website address. On 50webs.com if you chose the username webbie your address would be http://webbie.50webs.com/ ... this is what you .tk domain will redirect to when people type in your .tk address

    I am quite fond of http://www.awardspace.com

    You are given a FREE sub-domain of 200MB, and your 'address' would look something like

    http://yourname.awardspace.com

    Awardspace has 'paid' hosting too, but right now the FREE one is what I have.
    They are AD-less, leave you alone, let you conduct business (you can SELL things and they don't 'want a piece of the action'... must be legal activity suffice it to also add). They allow some server-side scripts (php, mySQL, etc. for those of you whom require this, and MORE scripts for the 'paid for' hosting).
    I seem to feel that they are 'up' far more often than some other free hosts... never had any problem with awardspace.com.

    The only drawback is that their uploading system only allows for THREE files at a time... so, -use an FTP program. Their FTP requires using "passive mode" or else you're not gonna get in... causes a LOT of posts in their forums of "this isn't working help me!". -It works... you just have to go "passive mode".

    Hey!

    i cannot praise enough the Host i am currently using: http://www.futureinternetservices.com/

    not only have they got cheap rates, prices starting £1 per month, they have excellent uptime and support is top class!
    Although they are from the US, i am from the UK, and whenever i send in a support, the longest i have had to wait was 30 minutes, and they were very helpful, and in some case's when i needed support that wasnt totally about the Hosting, they still helped as much as they can.

    Check them out, ive been with them about 3 months, and plan to stay with them longer. They havnt done anything to me for me to change Host.

    -Aaron
