Making A Web Page 101

Remember a few days ago when I got really excited about buying my very own domain name and how it took me an hour to figure out how to make Typepad point to my new address. The good news I did it right. The bad news? Well, sometimes I’m not the brightest bulb in the pack.

Me: "So I made my blog point to my new domain name but nothing is happening. Could I have done it wrong?"

Person I work with: "Well, did you buy a hosting package?"

Me: Silent.

So you can have a domain name all you want but if you have no hosting, nothing will happen. Hmph. I actually knew that. Not ready to invest in hosting at the moment so I guess I’ll just own a domain name for now. Just thought I’d follow up on my earlier post so you wouldn’t be wondering what was happening. Excitement slightly tempered but not entirely gone.
