I am a complete newbie at this, so be gentle :). I am trying to build a web site. I used this company on-line that I thought was a domain getter/site builder/hosting site, but it is only a site builder/hosting site. They farmed me out, via a link, to register.com. I assumed that register.com would have had some sort of arrangement with the builder/hosting web site, but nooooooo.

After I paid my $20+ for a domain name the web site told me that I had to wait 60 days before I could transfer it into their hosting thingee.

So they'll charge me for two months of "hosting" while I cool my heels waiting to begin? I think not.

I want to begin building the site ASAP, but I have never done anything like this before. Where do I turn? Any ideas?
