Website Basics-Creating a Website
(Page 1 of 3 )
If you are new to building websites, you might be surprised to find out that it is not as difficult an endeavor as you might suspect.
After securing a domain name, there are 2 main considerations to having a live website on the internet. The first is creation of the web pages, and the second is hosting it on the internet. (Hosting is discussed in the next article).
A webpage is just that, a page. If you have some familiarity with using a tool such as Microsoft Word, the concept is very much the same: when you type a letter or document into Word, you are creating a page. When you save it on your computer’s hard drive, you are saving a page. In point of fact, you'll find you can create a website easy using Microsoft Word. You can type information, adjust the font size and colors, paste in pictures with captions, and add links to other websites. All you have to do when finished is choose the option “save as web page” instead of “save as word document”. The resulting file is saved in html code, the universal language of the internet. Voila! You have created a simple website. In fact for someone who wants to start up a website with a simple single web page website, this is a very easy to use website tool.
