  • Are you through GoDaddy? If so just run a search for domain set up and you should get the manual... That will walk you through step by step... It worked for me.

  • Google sites has really easy editing tools that help a newbie create web pages. You could get a free account there, design your webpage with their tools, then copy and paste it to your own domain.

  • Ok, people you need HOSTING. You can't just copy and paste your domain somewhere.

    You have to have a hosting package (hosting is where your website lives). If you use a free site you can have you domain name forwarded and masked. But I would need a lot more information before I can help you. I am a web programmer, I do this for a living. Let me know where you purchased your domain, if you have a website, a free website, a website your work at home business gave you, or if you purchased your own hosting, or if you even HAVE a website.
    I need details - email me I will help you - no charge!
