    Hi Greg,
    Thank you for the tutorial. I ran into a problem. I did not receive the "Your Account Info" email from Hostgator. Is there a place where I can find that information on Hostgator?

    Hi Greg, This is great stuff. I am building a new website by this inspiration. This is just too good.
    I am following every step you mentioned, but unable to get the great look and feel on mobile and tab. Even the logo, company name etc do not show up on mobile device. I tried the site you created for this demo on mobile and this too had similar issues. Also the parallax is now showing up on the mobile devices. Any help would help..

    Thanks so much!

    Hey Greg, this was amazing, thanks so much! I got started by copying your surf school and now I will exchange it with my own topic. One last question reg. the ssl padlock: There was an image of white quotation marks on the left from the Dejan Stanovic citation at the homepage, called quote-1.png. When I clicked inspection/security at the homepage, I saw that it was blocking the padlock. So I simply deleted it, itΒ΄s not visible on the webpage nor in dashboard/media. But it is still listed in inspection/security as unsecure content. Do you have a clue where the problem might be?

    Hello Greg. Many thanks for this videa which is giving me the courage to create my own website. my domain name is taken so I am looking for an additional word that could complement it. My question is Hyphen or no hyphen?mybrandlifestyle.com or mybrand-lifestyle.com ? what would suggest by experience? I read articles stipulating that hyphen is a "no-no" so I am lost, despite apparently not having any effect on SEO. On one hand i understand that telling or remembering the website without hyphen might be easier but at the same time "lifestyle" is not my brand.

    Hi Greg, I'm only in the beginning stage and already running into a roadblock. I'm at the part where I'm on godaddy changing the nameserver. When i click on change it doesn't allow me to select default nor custom. Once i click change it ask me to connect my domain to a website I've built or enter my own nameserver (advance). Where do i go from this point because my options are not the same as yours?

    Hi Greg. I am a completely non technical person. Have a dumb question. I purchased a domain name and also the hosting service, economy Linux hosting with cPanel from go daddy. How do I start building a website. What should be the next logical step?
