    Question Yet another newbie question...

    Can I activate my website (find a host), even though it's not complete, and just modify (update) it as I go along? I already registered the domain name.

    Yes, you can.

    Your chosen web host will provide you with details for FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and you can upload/modify website files as you choose using your chosen FTP program - I recommend CoreFTP.

    That's what everyone does all the time. The only finished web sites are the dead ones that no one cares about any more.

    You can even start with a simple Under Construction page and then keep on uploading new contents.

    Yes, you can do it.
    Many people do it, they buy a host and then just keep a simple under construction page.
    You can update your whole site when its ready in one go, that would be a nice attempt
    good luck
