On May 18th I purchased a domain name to use as a platform to host my craft business Granny Smith Gift Shop, my home school page Miss Mommy Smith and my Blog explaining it all! 6 days after purchase I am the proud owner of a secure, functional, properly coded website! I haven’t coded a thing since 2002 but I’m guessing my way right on through! I had a huge snag with my SSL certificate being on the domain name but not being on my WordPress so it would trigger an unsecured-site red-flag even though my SSL was valid. The host I use, stellar on namecheap, was a life saver. I sent them a live chat question and they fixed everything in under an hour, I had been stuck for two days unable to find the answer anywhere and the customer service rep (Anna Momot) was a lifesaver! I hadn’t even heard of a host until this week but I’m feeling really good about the host I chose.
I’m so excited to begin adding content and features to my site! My goal was to be running by Sunday night and I’m feeling good about my progress so far! Thanks for stopping by and come back again soon to see whats new!
