    Hello All,
    I was looking at some threads about web hosting for a website. I am using a free google site but my wed address is a paragraph long LOL. I do NOT know a thing about setting one up. So can some one explain what some of the Jargons are?
    What is a C panel, what issite pinned? What is wordpress? There was some others. But I can't remember. Thanks

    C panel is Control Panel. That is where you control all the facets of your Web site.

    WordPress is an open sourced blogging tool. You use to build your Web site. There are probably a few other tools available to make it very easy to build your site.

    Here is some information about pinned sites: Pinned Sites - Microsoft Windows

    I would email Jim Mex with your questions. He has a lot of information that he can share with you. He was a great help to me when I was looking for information.

          Hi Kardar, Another way to shorten your web address is to do what I do. I purchased my URL (web Address) from godaddy at $9 per year. Then on godaddy you can "forward" you new address ie: to the url of your web site. I know this sounds difficult but after you purchase your web name from godaddy it is only one click to do it. You can click my link below and you will see it is a long ETSY web address. But if you type, it comes up without typing the etsy address given to me by etsy. I hope this helps.

            well I guess I was to quick cause I signed up with a web hosting site and already used my name so when I went to godaddy it was taken. Well I guess I will just pay the $10 a mo.

              He did the Baltimore run in October and finished in a little over 10 minutes. Of course it’s a very hilly course here and flat in San Antonio. Very proud of all of them.

              Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

              I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...
