    Create an index, design your site manually or install a web template or install a script. You need a frontend.
    You need a rearend too.

    "Use your favourite FTP application to transfer your website to the web server."

    Seriously though, do something fun! Set up a joke agony aunt page. Make pretty backgrounds. Post a blog on there. Do flashy stuff. Write about yourself. Write messages to friends. Put pictures up. Put links to your other sites (fb, blogs, etc). Make your own 'arcade' with free game code, or your own games.

    Some suggestions!

    Connect to the FTP server using an FTP client (such as this one) and then drag the files over.

    Your host should provide you with FTP details. It's usually just a case of using the credentials you use to access your hosting control panel.

    It seems your site is on a holding page set by your web hosting provider. visit your site and there are instructions there to get you going.
    However- I've jsut done a whois search for your domain and it seems its not been setup properly yet:

    I get the following message.
    Registration status:
    Registration request being processed.


    One way to make sure you've properly been registered with the authorities is to check your e-mail inbox (the e-mail adress you registered the domain anme with) for a message from Nominet (the UK registry) The subject should be: Your .uk domain name
    The from e-mail should be [email protected]

    If you have checked this through and the e-mail isn't there- you'll just have to wait a few days.

    If the e-mail is there in your inbox- just send me a message on here and I'll walk you through the rest.
