Where Do You Start?
Putting a website together from scratch seems really difficult. Where to start? Learn this or that or the other?
I did a fair bit of work with Front Page 2000, before getting into blogs (where the bulk of the work seemed done for you) and these kind of web-pages (I can use a template and get on with the content writing).
Still, what little HTML I know has come in handy for tweaking and fixing things the WYSIWYG systems don’t do right…so I have added a useful link to the Blogroll, for either finding just that one code you need, or for learning the basics.
Where do you store it?
Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) may include some webspace in your package
Blogs and online webpage makers like this already provide the storage space
You can pay for storage space, and an elegant domain name, etc
Note: If you want to find out whether a domain name is available, you can easily check at a site like this
Uploading Files to your website
If you have either paid for (or been given by your ISP) some webspace, you will need to learn just a little about how to upload and download files using FTP (File Transfer Protocol).
They may provide software to do this, or
recommend something (perhaps with a 30-day free trial) – but
you can also find freeware online which will do the job fine.
