Hello, Everybody!

I registered in HostGator’s forum and tried to sign in, but it didn’t accept my (just created) password, and I don’t have time to deal with that, so I looked for another forum and I found this one. What I couldn’t find out is if WebHosting Talk is intended for techies and professionals only or for beginners too, but I’m just starting to learn building a website. I hope not to be a “fish out of water”.

I would appreciate any help about this question:
I hadn’t published my website yet, when HostGator disabled it because it was using too much cpu (it seems I’m going to have to pay for a VPS plan) and in their notice email it says “If you reply back to this email with your IP address, we will be more than happy to go ahead and enable HTTP access for you, allowing you to safely work on the script while minimizing the negative effects on the server and its other users.”

What does “replying back with my IP address mean”? If I just answer via email too (just like everybody normally do) there’s my IP address, or isn’t it? So they got it, but… I don’t understand what they mean.

Thank you in advance.
