DNS (Domain Naming System) Setup
To create a web site, you must first register a domain with a registrar like namecheap.com
Enter the following name servers in your registrar’s DNS manager:
*** Make sure these are the only name servers listed ***
There is no need to sign up for their web hosting or email service. You may however want to add the privacy service to keep your contact info private.
Domain registration costs around $10/year USD
File transfer using SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol)
SFTP is used to transfer web site files to the server. Site files (html, php, images, etc) must be uploaded to the server before they can be seen on the Web.
Regular FTP is not supported
Web applications such as blogs, forums, and e-commerce shops rely on server-side scripting languages to handle requests and process data. PHP, Python, Ruby, and Perl are supported including all popular db frameworks like RoR and Yii
