Beginner’s cluck

At first, I was going to dismiss this as just another plaintive wail from a clueless newbie:

Yahoo! Answers screenshot: I just bought a domain name to make a website, but now I need to make my website. Is there any web host that I can transfer my domain to, and get a free site? I do not want to pay anymore than I did. I am looking for a site builder and I want to transfer the domain. Once again I need a free web host, that will transfer my domain.

But that was before I noticed the user name — “First Choice Computer Services,” indeed — which suggests, or wants to suggest, far more in the way of technical chops than is in evidence. I’ve heard of starting businesses on a shoestring, but most of those guys actually had shoes.

Alternatively, this may be “choice” in the cattle-business sense: one grade below prime.

    I was wondering if maybe this was a college student being pushed to do this sort of thing for a Marketing class or something. (I’ve gotten comments on my blog, when I discussed some novel, that were essentially saying “WRITE MY TERM PAPER FOR MEEEEEE! I HAVE TO READ THIS AND I’M TOO BUSY TO!”)
