So you want a website huh?

Since putting this site up I have received loads of emails asking for advice about designing and building websites. To be honest it took me ages to learn what with HTML and Javascript, CGI scripting etc etc - I spent about three years researching and practising with loads of different aspects of web creation before stumbling across a system that suits me. But don't let that put you off because now I know the shortcuts... and so can you!

Basically it goes like this:

1. The basic theme.

2. Decide on a website name.

3. Register it and find a domain host

4. Write your pages

5. Transfer the pages to your domain

6. Sit back and admire your handiwork

What do I need to know?

However, there are one or two little niggling problems to solve because if you want a website you probably also want to have a contact page, perhaps a forum, maybe FFA page (free-for-all classifieds), you'd quite like some little javascript bells and whistles, and oh yes! a little flash display would look good along with the images that you upload (that have to be edited) etc etc.

All in all, if you want to make a decent job of it you have to learn:

You also need loads of information

What sort of name should I choose?

Which is the best domain host for me?

How do I design the site to be search engine friendly?

How do I promote my website?

What is the best FTP program to use?
