-My domain (I host with HostGator, if that helps answer and of these questions ) is still in the process of 'propagating,' and should be fully operational in the next 24 hours, but as of now it's still showing the HostGator parked page. My question regarding this is, I plan on paying the extra bit for the pro installation (so as to avoid as many screw-ups on my part as possible, haha), should I wait until the domain has propagated to make my purchase? Not sure how quick you guys are about these things, but I'd hate to purchase and then have you guys waiting on me. And do I need to set up an FTP account for you guys prior to this?
-My second question is a little bit more broad. The amount of knowledge I have on this kind of stuff is pitiful, so forgive me for any stupid questions. I have a tiny bit of a background in HTML, I had a Dragonball Z website when I was in school, hahaha. Anyway, I've tried to do a little research on this MySQL and php stuff, as it says that the paid installation doesn't cover those two things, and I haven't been able to find much... Are these two things that I need to take care of prior to my purchase?
Any time is much appreciated, I've been lurking here a lot while doing my forum research and you guys have a great community!
