hi there BWH, Earlier this year i tried to make a website for my ppd campaign, but it was ****, so i started a new one this summer. The first one i made was on godaddy website creator, but now i make a wordpress website without paying at the moment. I use XAMPP server on my own pc to edit the website. I already ran into some problems. I cant upload my site to hostgator, as it seems that my domain is banned there, probably because it says "hacking" in it. So someone suggested in this forum that i should put up my website on a VPS, i never knew that it was actualy possible . So i need some answers before i put up anything on the internet. When i started up the server on XAMPP and then started the wordpress, it didn't asked MySQL password, which seems insecure? If i upload the webiste i'm currently creating on my pc to a hosting or a VPS, can i create that password ? Is VPS more expensive to host on than hosting ? Is there any chance that i get shut down by the hosting/vps owners ? (thats my biggest consern, as it happened for me once on weebly, which was horrible experience ) I hope this is the right section, i probably forgot to ask something, so i will post later.
