How to set up a web page - Web Page Content
Web page content, this is what you are reading now. How did it get here? What software was used? How is it loaded to the hosting provider?
This page's content was created with Dreamweaver software, one of many commercially available software on the market. Most software gives you a choice of designing the page via a graphical or code based interface.
Their are numerous free html editors available for download, a quick google search will provide a list of editors to create your web page content. The most basic editor is using windows notepad and viewing in a web browser.
You will need to test that your web page works in different browsers, the most popular is Microsoft Internet Explorer 8, my favorite browser is Firefox there is also Opera, Google Chrome, Safari (mac) and Konqueror (linux). I have a copy of IE8, Chrome and firefox on my PC and make sure that the web page works in most browsers before I upload to my hosting service.
Most content is created on your computer and then uploaded to your hosting service via FTP (file transfer protocol). Once again via Google you should be able to find a free FTP program, I use fireFTP which is a free plug in for the Firefox web browser.
All FTP programs will need your hosting services log in details, which include your host details, username and password. Your host details will be similar to ftp.yourdomainname.com. The program will have 2 windows, one showing the files on your computer and the other showing files on your hosts server. The hosting server will have several directories showing, the files should be uploaded to a directory called "public_html" or "web" or what your hosting service tells you.
The hosting service will have other directories that will be visible to you, care must be taken not to delete any of these as this may cause your site not to function.
