Re: Tips to create your own Personal Video website

I will definitely give it a try but can you let me know some cheap hosting and domain providers?? And I hope the task is that easy as you have explained above. I guess creating the website will take most of the time right?? I also wanted to know which software you will recommend me to use from the above ones as I don?t have much idea about the coding but do a bit of idea about html. Help regarding this will be appreciated.
