Late at night, i bought a domain name for three years. I literally know nothing about them. Until i can figure out something better, i thought i might assign it to a blog, as i found out how to do that with blogger. But i'm scared - i don't want to assign it permanently to a blog for three years, i want to learn to build an interactive website in that time! Can't i just change what i assign it to when i feel like it? I need to ask this, because all the answers online require me to know, for instance, that a domain name is not an URL (is it? isn't it?) and what a file directory or a server is and other incomprehensible things. (If is for fun, i don't care if nobody else sees it, so 'being brutally punished by Pagerank', whatever that is, i don't care about, as long as i can play with it. I missed the start of term for the website building course at the adult education centre.) Think of me as your gran (i am in age) when explaining. Thanks very very much.
