NegativeSpace Posted January 10, 2012 Share Posted January 10, 2012 I bought a domain and a hosting plan as a gift for someone for Christmas. Along with the gift, I said that i would include a working website. I've never built a website. I've never had the time nor the reason to build one. I have always wanted to learn, and now I have the time and the reason to do so. All I need is some help, just to get started, and probably not a whole lot of it as I am self taught on many subjects. I don't understand how to create the content, how to upload that content to the web server on which I rented space, and how to manage my content. I'll ask this as my first question here; Can anyone suggest a free tool for me to use to create my websites content? What will the outcome of my work be? In other words, will I have a simple file that I can upload to a web server? For my next hurdle; What do I have to do to put my content onto a web server, and make it available for access from the internet? I guess I'll leave the questions at that for now. I do want to add one more thing, though. I might seem like a 'beginner' and, where creating websites is concerned, I am a beginner, but I've also been a learning computer lover and hacker at heart since I ran my first DOS command to play Oregon Trail from a live 5 1/4" floppy on a Tandy2000 in the late 80's (just to give you an idea of my general level of understanding). Thanks for any help that anyone can offer! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
