Making A Website

How to make a nice website
Programs Needed: None

Ok, some basic steps/Advisions in making a nice website.
Advision 1: Have a nice layout. Make your own, or hire someone. No, I don't know how to make site layouts.
Advision 2: Know if your server supports PHP. This will help your website A LOT!
Advision 3: Use CSS and scripts, like JavaScript, PHP, VBScript, etc.
Now, for your website:

Step 1: Find a place for your website. This is divided into two sections. The Paid Domain Names section or the Free Webhosting plan.
Paid Domains With a paid domain name, you get advantages. You can affiliate with more websites, you can use FTP/PHP/etc.(well, most of the time...), and you can get forums for your site! Now, as the title says, domain names cost real money. First, you need to be able to buy a domain name. Use the Google Search to find one. Then you need to find a server to go with it, because otherwise you have no files. I strongly reccommend HostGator as a server. It's up to you, really. Next, there are a few advisories I want to make for you:

  • Enter into some topsites. This tells you the number of unique hits AND if your site is good!
  • Use content your visitors will like. Don't have 50 pages of useless content
  • Add a few tutorials. Make your own. Don't use this one :wink:

Free webhosting plan Using a free website hoster, there are a few things you should know:

  1. Most free web hosters are NOT PHP/FTP enabled.
  2. You can still enter topsites, but you will not have many sites with a button to you.
  3. Free web hosters have a limit on your storage. This is usually about 20-50 MB.
Now, here are strongly reccommended free hosters:
This ends the Domains section.
Back to your building steps: Step 2. Use a counter, and a guestbook, etc. Go to Bravenet for some great things ADVISION: Also, build a forum for your website! You can get free ones here. Step 3: Make an error page! A tutorial on this will be coming soon(I believe that custom 404 pages are only usable with real domains) Step 4: Keep updating your site. Keep your visitors there! Hope this tutorial helped. Questions? Comments? Send them here. Tutorial by Charlie
