I'm really just looking for some help to get started really. I've done a postgrad in web design and multimedia however have had no luck getting relevant work yet. I've designed a small demo site which I've uploaded onto some free webspace however I want to expand my portfolio and skills.
can anyone suggest places I could look for web space and hosting? I dont know anything about hosting so would I also need to purchase that to upload any site I created?
I also would like to have a back-end database in my website and using VB.NET. I created a site with a database as part of my uni work using Visual Studio and VB.NET, however as I am not that experienced in putting things together could I use visual studio to create the part of my site with the database? I'm not sure where it all fits in yet.
Basically any advice anyone can give about the vb.net side of things would be gratefully appareciated in addition to hosting. I'll no doubt ask more questions when I think of them.
Thanks for reading
