You can do it...honest
You can register a website address (called a domain in tech talk) even before you have a website. In fact the longer you wait the harder it will be to get one that isn't already taken. Domains are registered at a domain registrar such as NameCheap.

You don't need to spend money on fancy computer programs or enroll in expensive courses to learn how to make a website. In fact you don't even have to learn any web design code at all if you build your website with an online site builder.

But those who do want to learn HTML code will be happy to know that it's quite easy to learn. Really it is and you are about to find that out.

So are you ready to make your first webpage with HTML? Sure you are, let's get started.

Getting down to business
The only thing needed to make a website is a browser and a simple text editor such as Notepad that comes with Windows. Yup, Notepad, even for fancy websites, for Mac users there's TextEdit, for Linux there's Leafpad.

Before making your first webpage you need to know how to turn a regular text file into an HTML file: From the File menu in Notepad choose Save As, give your file a name, any name you like, for example mypage, and add the .html extension to it like so:


The .html extension is what turns a regular text file into an HTML file. It only needs to be added at the time you create the file, once it's made simply save the file each time you edit the code. Save your file in a folder where you can easily find it.

The saved code can be opened and edited from within the text editor (make sure that "All Files" is selected from the drop down menu in the editor's dialog box).

To open the webpage in your browser simply go to the folder in which it is saved and click on the webpage icon.

Important Note
The file name for the main web page of any website must be index.html All other pages within a site can be given any name you like.
