I checked out their web site, and they seem like a good outfit.  But I must
admit, I'm totally lost.  Allow me to explain.

My old web site was pure HTML.  No ASP, no PHP, no SQL.  It's just pure
information, with some links for downloading files.  I'm not a business
trying to set up a web site so that customers can order stuff from me.
I just want to publish free information for the public.  It's mostly tech
stuff about Debian.

When I created my old web site, All I did to manage it was use FTP to upload
and download files.  By convention, the home page was "index.htm".  Any other
pages could be linked to from that page.  The only thing that I would like to
change is to use SSL-encrypted FTP, so that my password won't be sent over
the network in clear text.  I must admit that I don't understand this brave
new world of web hosting.  Looking at debian-hosting's web site, I'm totally
lost as to how I would mangage my account.  What I'm looking for is something
similar to what I had before.  Is there anything like that out there?  Or can
I manage a debian-hosting account that way?
