How to Build, Upload and Host Your Own Web Site
By Enrique De Argaez, webmaster

Web sites are simply servers connected to the Internet. On Web sites, you can publish Web pages in a format called HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language). Anyone with a computer connected to the Internet can view Web pages using a program called a browser. There are several available, most browsers are free, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, AOL/Netscape Navigator, Opera browser, or the new Firefox browser.

Web sites can also be use to send and receive email over the Internet.
Thunderbird is the new email program from the Mozilla Foundation that you can install on your hard disk.

The easiest way to create a Web page is to use a Web authoring-tool, also called an HTML-authoring tool. Many commercial programs are available. The two most famous being:
FrontPage, which is available for purchase from Microsoft, and Dreamweaver, which is available for purchase from Macromedia. These tools write the HTML code for you as you compose your page. Using them is similar to using a word processor such as Microsoft Word. A well known free authoring tool is Composer, available from Netscape.

As an alternative, you can create Web pages by writing the HTML code yourself in a text editor program such as Notepad, or better yet using
HTML-Kit a full featured free editor program for building HTML web pages. Pointers to learning HTML include Writing HTML: A tutorial for creating Web pages, CNET Web Builder, HTML Goodies, Web Style Guide, and W3C HTML Homepage.

For more advanced reading, include the following: the
Web Wonk, Web Monkey, Writing for the Web by Jakob Nielsen, PJ Schemenaur, and Jonathan Fox at Sun Microsystems, Kevin Werbach's Bare Bones Guide to HTML , Web Reference. For checking and fixing raw HTML into effective web pages, see Doctor HTML.

If you already own a domain, you can purchase your own
hosting service. If this is your case, log in to the Control Panel or Site Administrator interface, then go to the Quick-start guide in the online Help for more information about publishing (uploading) Web pages to your site.

Here are some free (and safe) programs that you will find useful:

Excellent for processing images and graphics.

Website monitoring service that watches your website 24/7/365 and notifies you if it becomes unavailable.

A free yet reliable invisible web tracker, highly configurable hit counter and real-time detailed web stats. Insert a simple piece of our code on your web page and you will be able to analyze and monitor all the visitors to your website in real-time!
