Building a website can be as easy or as hard as you want to make it.... it really depends on what you want to display, how you want the website to function, and what tools you are going to use to put it all together.
|The Hard Way |
If you really want to get down to the nuts and bolts of web design, and building websites from scratch, then you will have to learn HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language). HTML is a programming language that Internet Browsers (i.e. Microsoft Internet Explorer) know how to interpret. HTML files are simply text files that are given a file extension like .html, .htm, or .php (there are many other extensions that browsers can interpret), but the main ones for web pages are .htm and .html. If you create a text document in a text editor (like NotePad.exe.... free with Microsoft Windows), and call it anything.html, then an Internet Browser will be able to open it, and you'll see a web page.
