Though it does look good, it saddens me that so many people would actually accept money from a project that was done up through a damn program... Though... Your hosting... I would suggest learn to host for yourself... Much cheaper if you ask me lol... I host with my own home server, Linux of course lol...
<sarcasm>Yea, I'de never use an industry standard CMS like Drupal that is easy to upgrade and has decent security.</sarcasm>
Honestly, why does it matter how he implemented it? The fact that he did, and it *mostly* complies with industry standards, and has minimal errors is a great thing, especially for your first time.
Hosting servers on your home computer is not worth it for many reasons. If you ever get a large clientel... good luck managing that much stuff. I manage one large website on a dedicated server, and it it's a hand full.
