Moving to online webhosting for glittergirl

So with the whole move from self hosting and having multiple servers running at home I have slowly moved my data into the "cloud". The next step was to move my wifes website to a hosted service.
Its a really simple html site so I didn't need lots of fancy backend stuff. So my domain registrar, RegisterDirect offered webhosting, it wasn't free, but I can mange all the DNS, redirects, MX records all from one interface. And the price compared to other webhosting services wasn't that bad.

So now www.glittergirl.co.nz is a hosted site. I took me all of 20 minutes, signed up for the hosting service and paid the yearly subscription, FTPed the site up, changed the default homepage reference from homepage.html to index.html.
