Thanks for the very clear intro. Interesting possibilities. I’m getting ready to host a small static website. What about security of the website after posting?  I’d like to have links to YouTube for example. Do you have a primer like this for what the files you uploaded in the example should contain and how they should be prepared? Thanks again.

I’m wondering now if I have uploaded my website and it has a blog content and I need writing a post per month even uploaded a new picture into my portfolio section because I have got a new customer so I would like to show it on my page, what should I do to upload this new contend? Could it be deleted all my page by 1 hour while I put this contend into my IDE (sublime text ) Any idea? 🙂
