to welcome you to the WebDesign forum. I think it would be an excellent idea for us to have a site that deals with 'some Excel stuff' as you put it, so that we can direct other forum users to it for advice and help.
You'll find the whole process a little puzzling at first - everyone does - but if I'm any judge, you'll soon be in there with your sleeves rolled up.
FrontPage is an excellent application to use, BUT......there were some dire versions. If you have a trul ancient version it will frustrate you, and might blunt your enthusiasm. Try to get hold of a more recent version - FP 2000 onwards - if you possibly can, or a recent version of NetObjects Fusion.
As to your other queries:
With FrontPage you would normally upload your files to your BlueYonder webspace by using FP's 'publish' command. This will transfer all the necessary site files to the server from within FrontPage, and this is by far the best method for a FrontPage site. FrontPage has special interactive components, such as animated text effects, forms, and built in forums that need special compnents to be installed on the web server that hosts the site. These components are called FrontPage extensions, and they are available free from Microsoft. They need to be installed by the hosting company before your site can use the special FP components, and although most ISPs are now doing this as a matter of course, some aren't (or are charging a fee for it). Blue Yonder already have the extensions on their servers, so no worries there.
If you want to have your own domain name (vog.co.uk) you'll need to purchase it. This is not expensive, but once you have the name you will need to host it with another company - one that specialises in domain hosting. The hosting is not that expensive either, although costs vary slightly from company to company. The hosting company will provide your domain name with its own server space - in exactly the same way as Blue Yonder - and then you can put your site there, on your own name. Incidentally, vog.co.uk has already been taken, as has vog.com, by someone else, but you could have vog.uk.com if you wanted it.
That's enough for starters I think. If you need more help don't hesitate to ask - email me if you like - you can count on me for as much help/advice as you need, and I'm sure the same goes for the other regular WebDesign people.
By the way - take a look on Amazon.co.uk for a second-hand copy of FrontPage 2000. The site's offline at the moment, but I'm sure it will be back up soon.
