needing this this is like a file directory that controls how your website is accessed you can block IP addresses decide what air pages look like redirect them stuff like that except safe as a credit card system to accept credit cards on your side if you’re doing a shopping ecommerce site so it’ll be secure and safe I’m gonna skip this stuff this is just like files CGI and scripted language support it’s mostly stuff you probably won’t need but
you’re gonna like check error logs have information sent to your email addresses some PHP scripting disk usage just shows you how much disk use that you’ve used even though it’s unlimited you can at least see how much you have used so far FTP not gonna go into that that’s really complicated if you’re not familiar with it at all it’s fire file transfer protocol you basically can use like a third-party program like FileZilla that allows you to
upload files onto your server from your computer without having to log into your fat count control panel it’s basically a lot faster a lot easier to manage if you have big files it’s also great for downloading exporting files I will have a separate video on that which will be right here if you want to go ahead and see that you can click the link file manager basically shows you all the files of your server your whole hosting account WordPress

ones another site builder here except this is actually a mobile site builder so it does cost money so again like I said a lot of these things you probably won’t use but it’s $2.99 a month and it converts your site into like a mobile version so people can see it on their iPhone and iPad which is good because more and more people use mobile devices and then here’s all the email stuff setting up an email and I’m gonna have an entire video on how to
