The digital revolution paves the way for you to have an alternative venue where you can advertise your business or professional capabilities. It also allows you to connect with friends, family and colleagues. As more people are discovering the wonders that cyberspace has to offer, it is important that you take advantage of it and create your own web page.
Building a web page may require some technical knowledge but a little practice will do wonders. Essentially, there are two ways how you can create your web page. The first is to create your web page offline and upload it through your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Another way is to create your web page online using a Telnet program and accessing your UNIX account. There are software programs available that will help you create that perfect web page. The Adobe Dreamweaver is easy to use and within a few hours, you can already upload your first attempt at building web pages.
The first thing you can do is register a domain name with Yahoo! Or GoDaddy.com. Next, you must select a site that could host your web page. Select a web page host that will fulfill your needs. This includes consideration for bandwidths and space that could accommodate your web page. After settling all that, you need to go down to the nitty-gritty and create your web page. It is important that you learn some HTML and CSS. HTML usually has six levels numbered 1 through 6 with 1 representing the largest level.
After learning the basics of HTML and CSS, it is time for you sit down and make a draft on how you would want your web page to look like. Make sure that each element you put in your draft represents the elements you want to appear in your web page. You can now use AdobeDreamweaver to construct your web page. Open your program and create a new HTML file. Add the tables by using the “Insert” “Tables” command. Incorporate your contents into the tables.
You may also add images and links using the “Insert” feature of the program. To write your CSS and HTML text, you can use any word processing program making sure that you save it as a .txt file. After completing the process, save your work as an HTML file and upload them through your ISP.
Test your web page and locate your URL. This is also one way of seeing how your initial effort at creating a web page looks like online. There are essentially three parts in the URL, the domain, the directories and the file name. The domain is your web host, the directory is the user name you created in your account and the file name is the exact name of the HTML file you uploaded. You can check online whether you can locate your web page using your assigned web address.
With everything in order, you are now ready to announce to everyone where they can visit you in cyberspace. You are also ready to create more web pages.
