  1. I personally use a VPS as I have several different projects that I work on, mostly personal stuff at the moment. I have the VPS through Ram Node and I have never had any issues with their level of service or overall cost. Would recommend if you are in the market for something like a VPS.
  2. I personally use a VPS for hosting and I don't use cPanel to manage it, preferring to edit my configuration files directly to add/remove/update domains, locations etc personally. I do however use Let's Encrypt for my sites and I find it very convienient to use the Let's Encrypt scripts that they have provided to generate the SSL and install it automatically into my nginx configuration.
  3. I've used both GoDaddy and Namecheap and honestly I prefer Namecheap, both for dashboard and in general. Never had any problems with Namecheap, although never had any problems with GoDaddy either but I've used Namecheap for a long time. Namecheap have some good deals, they usually have some sort of discount code running each month for standard discounts, plus they usually run some pretty good deals on for Black Friday and Cyber Monday each year.
  4. You can opt out of email notifications in the User Control Panel. If you go to Account Settings and then look for Notification Settings it allows you to toggle most email notifications on or off.
  5. I don't see them getting a general acceptance worldwide purely because they can't, by the very nature of them, be regulated like a normal currency can and is. The entire idea behind using blockchain has been to deceentralise them which is great for those that want to conduct transactions without the interferance of the state but for that very reason no government in the world is going to agree to them. Sure, in the land of the internet we can use them and Bitcoin, the most well known, has thrived with several places choosing to accept it. Facebook is currently looking at creating its own and there is a very big pushback from a lot of countries and for this reason I don't think crypto currency will be able to achieve general acceptance.
  6. The most costly one would be a desktop site that has no or poor mobile optimisation because then you are losing a huge potential customer base. A lot of web traffic is now mobile so a site that chooses to ignore that says to me that they don't want me there so I would not be inclined to then go to my PC to check them out.
  7. Moved to a more appropriate forum for this topic. There are plenty out there, not any that I have used myself as it isn't something I really get into but I think Audacity is a free one that allows you to modify music files.
  8. Whilst HTTPS is always a good choice there are different levels of SSL, touched on by Chase. There are domain level SSL certificates and there are Organisation level SSL certificates. The difference being the amount of documentation needed. There more secure certificates require legal documentation and are usually recognised by browsers with a more prominent icon (Think Chrome with its green bar). SSL certificates for many years were always behind a paywall requiring you to pay money for them, whilst that is still the case for most there are ways to get them for free, such as Let's Encrypt, a CA that is providing certificates completely free of charge. You can find out more about them here https://letsencrypt.org/ Having used Let's Encrypt for a few projects I fully support the use of them for almost any project except those that are processing monetary payments. So if you want to run an ecommerce store I would recommend getting a paid SSL certificate. (For sites that are taking monetary payments "offsite" such as accepting PayPal and the customer is redirected to PayPal's site to conduct the actual payment then Let's Encrypt is fine as the only information passed between PayPal and your site is whether you have paid or not and not your actual payment details.)
  9. It can be a confusing subject. Web hosting by definition is somewhere to host your website, web hosting can come in many different forms from shared hosting (multiple clients served from a single server) through to Virtual Private Servers (Usually this would be a single server, a "node", serving multiple clients with virtual machines giving you more control over things like operating system and program versions) and then Dedicated Servers (Like a VPS but 1 client 1 server model instead of multiple virtual servers on 1 server). Cloud hosting is slightly different in that usually you aren't tied as much to hardware limits like you are with a dedicated server. If you were to buy a dedicated server and then find you need more hardware resources (Be that CPU, Memory or Disk Space) you would need to upgrade that server (Providing new hardware) or move to a bigger server, either option can be costly or takes time.) When you go cloud hosted you aren't tied to that specifically in that a cloud provider will already have multiple servers all tied in, you provide the data and they use hardware resources that are available to process that data across their cloud servers, allowing you to scale up or scale down the overall resources you need with little to no delay, some cloud providers allow you to scale up and down to meet demand automatically to some overall limits you specify.
  10. It entirely depends on what sort of site you want to run. For example, if you wanted to run a standard blog there are premade software solutions tailored for that (Biggest one being Wordpress) that you could with a little googling set up (or use their hosted platform), have a theme made for you or choose a premade one and boom you are ready to go with adding your content. However, if you want to get into advanced stuff like a custom platform or advanced custom features then knowing a programming language is essential unless you want to pay for that development work. As for setting something up using django, yes knowing python is essential for that, especially for the way it is set up and how you develop a site using django. Aside from python you would also need to know some HTML (HTML5 is the current standard), CSS and JavaScript (Be that using a framework such as jQuery or other)
