Where in the name of all that is holy, or even heathen, did you get
THAT piece of poetry from?
Mr. Kamath, if you're hosting this web site as a learning experience,
then go for it, but you have some serious reading to do. It is clear
from your posts here that your grasp of the technologies needed to host
a website yourself is wanting. Some people here have intimated this,
but it's time for the pussy footing to end.
You clearly have only the vaguest clue what you're doing. That's fine -
I can't play the piano worth a toss, but if I want to listen to music,
I get experts to provide it for me. I could learn, I guess, but it
would be pointless my asking for detailed palying notes on Mozart's
eleventy-first piano concerto before I could play a scale. In your
case, you're going to have to accept that you have a lot to learn, and
you need to go off and learn it - and to be honest, you won't learn it
by asking random questions here. We can help, of course, but you're
going to have to do a lot of groundwork.
If, on the other hand, somebody actually wants this web site to work,
then for the love of goodness, pay Cheap-Hosters-R-Us their $10 a month
or whatever and have the site hosted by them.
