Why is this site based in Germany, anyway, as a question for you admins? (I notice, however, it is registered a location in Portsmouth, which sounds more right.

My GCSE Computing J276/01 Networking section, on WWW, HTTP, HTTPS etc., and I looked up for many different sites, including some other sites I use. When you go in that link, you can change the website address (at the end of the URL not the site domain) and change it if you want.
