ASP.NET hosting service for html site
I'm just started as a graduate in a web applications company even though I have zero web-related experience (I studied C# web forms in college but no internet stuff). Specifically my new company uses ASP.NET MVC 3.
Since I have a lot to learn I'm planning get a website up and running in my free time so as to learn from the very start and build up from there. I want to start off with a static html site with some css for styling.
If I choose an ASP.NET 4.0 hosting service site from the very beginning can I deploy basic .html files or would they be looking for some sort of deployment package (whatever Visual Studio produces)?
Would I be better off choosing a more basic hosting service initially and migrating when I want to start building applications?
(I already have a domain registered if that makes any difference)
