I'm familiar with hosting webapps when I'm doing "the whole shebang" of installing / configuring / setting up Apache/Tomcat/PostreSQL / "coding" the website myself using HTML / JSP / CSS etc. on dedicated servers I'm renting.
But in the above case, I'm "owning" the entire stack: from the Debian GNU/Linux dedicated servers to every single file that is served.
Now I'd like to do something much simpler and I must admit I don't know what's involved at all.
I'd like to host a simple website made of only a few static pages (no database, no nothing) and I'd like it to be accessible from "example.com".
What needs to be technically done to have such a thing? How is the DNS supposed to be set up?
Note that I do not want to host this on one of my dedicated servers.
