Question by samurai_army0: Ok, Ive made my own website using HTML, but I just have one thing i need to figure out…?
So Ive made my own website using HTML and the program “notepad” (just regular ol’ notepad haha). And since Im still kind of a n00b at HTML and webdesign, I dont really know how to make it an actual site where people can go to and such hehe.

Like, its all finished, I just dont know how to upload it to the internet so-to-speak.

Anyone know what Im talkin about and could help?

you need to buy a domain or get one for free from websites like angelfire. this domain gives you the web address so you can upload your files there. yahoo sells domains. good luck!

  1. You don’t nessesarily have to have a domain. You can find a free host such as Angelfire, freewebs, or something similar and simply host it there.

    The domain name is a bit flashier but not required. They can be had for cheap however, I pay something like 12 bucks a year through 000domains.com for my Domain registration.

  2. I usually recommend web1000.com for free websites. They allow you to upload your pages either with FTP or with a fancy schmancy online form. They give you plenty of space. No banners or popups (although I haven’t used them in a while so that may have changed).

    And you get a much shorter URL than you would get with geocities for example.

    http://www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/Lair/1111
    vs.
    http://yoursite.web1000.com

    They have a couple dozen domain names so you can get something other than web1000.com.
