Most (more like all) of the free web servers that host sites are
going to come attached to small bandwidth limits, ad’s, and pop up
windows. You’re going to want to look into buying server space.
Luckily, this can be done fairly inexpensivly. If it’s just a small
site and you don’t mind the pop up’s or ad’s, then free is readily
As for html, learning depends on the type of learner you are. i
personally learn from hands on experiance and puttering around. i
started off with a copy of front page, which is termed wysiwyg- what
you see is what you get.you put it where you want it, and that’s
where it is. it’s not the same as templates. a template will be pre-
designed, and you just fill in the provided blanks.
what’s nice with wysiwyg is that if you run into something you don’t
know how to do, you run it through a wysiwyg program (such as
frontpage), and then view the source code.
another thing you can do on just about any website (some do block
source viewings), is do a right click on empty space, scroll down,
and click view source. this will pop up a window with the source
html code on it.the basics are very basic, and worded so they make sense. going
slowly works best, because you’re going to get highly frustrated if
you are trying to stick the scroll bar on the left side of the
screen instead of the right, or if you want multiple frames that fit
1 single picture together flawlessly. There is a mathmatical aspect,
because you design based on pixel size.
For instance, if you have a
background image that is 1024×768, then those are the pixel
dimensions you need to design around, so that there’s no empty
space. If you’d like to know more about stuff, feel free to email me
