A Self-Confessed Newbie!!

I have never attempted to make a website myself before and decided to give it a go. I found the purchasing of a domain name to be incredibly easy and, after searching and asking about, decided that 123-reg seemed to be a pretty good hosting company too.
I purchased their business package (which apparently comes with a free domain name - shame as I'd already purchased one!) and found that process easy too!
I did have a problem trying to upload my website as the package that I used was asking for the "folder" relating to my FTP account. I used the live web chat service to be told by Marian that it should be /web/content/ Something I personally feel should be mentioned in the welcome email? None the less, after inputting this information my site started uploading. Marian then pointed the Domain to the Hosting IP (Something which sounded completely foreign to me!) and told me that my site should be ready to view online in 24-48 hours!
I hope this is the case and look forward to seeing all my hard work online!
All in all, a smooth process with good, clear communication from the operatives!
