Long time reader, first time poster. The Long Version: I'm in grad school (it's safe to say it's not a tech-based program ) and might need a medium through which to display a professional portfolio in a year or two. Rather than wait until that time and have to scramble to figure all this stuff out, I figured I'd start this process now and give myself sometime to play with this and hopefully develop a better understanding of the process. I've purchased a domain and, for the time being, I'd just like my domain to display my Tumblr. Do I need hosting of any sort? Thanks to MR, I've already purchased the domain through register.com and, if need be, I think I'll go asmallorange.com for hosting. TL;DR Version: I have a domain. I have a Tumblr. I'd like my domain to display my Tumblr. Do I need hosting? EDIT: Looks like I'm in business. My Tumblr appears to be redirecting to my domain now. Glad I didn't need hosting.
