There are several ways to create a home page and several kinds of programs to aid you. To make a home page, you can create a HTML text file using a text editor program such as Notepad. You can also use a software package like Dreamweaver that generates the HTML code for you. Most word processing programs similar to Microsoft Word will save to HTML format as well.
- Using the program of your choice, create a file with content you wish to appear on the page, and then save the file to your public_html folder as index.html. This becomes your home page. Your page is now accessible to anyone who visits your web address.
- To work on your web page before going live, disable the web page and then enable it when you are ready to go live. To do this, see How do I disable my web page?.
- To change your web page, simply edit the existing index.html file and save. You can also save a new file as index.html and it will replace the old file.
To put graphics on your web page, you must link to them. If you put a graphic in the public_html folder, you can link to the graphic as pic.jpg.
