Hi fellow physicists, I'd like to create my own website. I already have my own webpages currently hosted on a university server but my account will soon be deactivated and I will no longer be able to use that server. So I would like to transfer my personal webpages elsewhere. The trouble is I have no experience doing this and don't know where to start. I think that I would need to do the following: 1) Buy a website domain - where is the best place to buy this and would I need to keep paying every year or once I buy the domain name do I keep it forever? 2) Find a host server - again where do I find this and is it costly 3) Upload my webpages - what's the best way to do this, currently I use an SSH client to update my website on the university server and this works well, just replacing the html files when I update them. It would be good to find an equally easy way of doing this. I'm hoping it will be a relatively simple process but as I said I've never done it before so don't know where to start doing a simple google search doesn't really help because there are so many commercial sites out there. I just want to know the procedure and tips on the best hosts etc. to use. Hope that's clear, Thanks in advance for your help.
