I can't remember how exactly I first got the idea to build a website, or purchase a domain name like hellhounds.com when I was ~10; Probably from playing too much RuneScape and wanting somewhere to show off what I'd done.

When I was coming towards the end of primary school years, my class were split in to small groups to work on a fake product, making brochures, flyers, cards etc. and due to already having a domain and hosting in place, I thought I'd make us a website. The teacher had no idea how it was all done so asked if I could stay behind after school one night when some parents were in to describe what I'd done. It was the moment I was telling them all how to structure HTML and CSS when I realised I had a genuine interest in it and how cool it was to be able to build stuff for the web.
