How To Make A Web Page
I'm going to show you a basic way of how to make a web page that only requires a text editor like windows notepad. Later on you can browse the tutorials at freeservers and learn to use their online tools to make a web page.
All web pages are basically text files containing instructions and information for Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator to display your page.
As an exercise I'll ask you to follow these instructions to
make your first simple web page.
A. Open up your favourite text editor like notepad.
B. Select "View" then "Source" in your web browser to open up a text editor. Then select "File" then "New" to get a blank text page.
Now, type in or cut and paste this text:
<title>My First Web Page</title>
<h1>This is a heading</h1>
<p>This is my first paragraph. <b>This is bold text.</b></p>
<p>This is a new paragraph.<p>
Now save it as mypage.html (not mypage.txt).
That's it! You've made a web page.
At this stage it's worth creating a folder to hold your web pages.
Now you can see what it looks like by looking for it with your web browser or double-clicking the file mypage.html from say windows explorer.
The text you typed is called HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language).
I'll leave it to you to learn more about html if you so wish or learn how to use web page authoring tools.
Since I want to get you on the web fast, I'll jump ahead at warp speed to a more complex web page that can be used as the basis for a complete web site like this one.
I've made a free website template
that you can modify in your text editor to make your own custom web site.

Once you've created a web page it's ready to be published to the web.
Publishing Web Pages (Uploading).
To do this, go to the members area of the freeservers web site and log in with your user name and password. Then go to the file manager and follow the instructions to upload index.html from your computer.
Once your page has been uploaded it is available for all to see on the web! By surfing to your web site address you should see your new page. If not, try hitting refresh a couple of times to flush out old (cached) pages from your browser. Also ensure that the file name of your page is called index.html
