How to Make a Web Page

A website consists of several Web pages, which are linked together. Before you build your own website, you need to know how to make a web page at first.
Here we'll introduce three ways to build a web page, no matter whether you have HTML knowledge or not, please read on...

Hand-code HTML Web pages in a text editor like Notepad:

Make a Web page using the language called HTML. HTML is not hard to learn. A HTML Web page consists of the page's text surrounded by various HTML tags for structuring and formatting the page. For example, you surround the text with <p> and </p> tags to create a paragraph of text:

<p> Here is a paragraph of text </p>
You can make your HTML Web pages with a text editor like Notepad, that means you type in the HTML code yourself. It is the best way because you have the most control over what you're doing.
HTML is fairly simple, and it's a good idea to learn at least a few basic tags. However if you don't have a plan to build your Web pages by typing HTML by hand, then there are some good alternatives:

Build Web pages without HTML knowledge

Use a pre-made template: WHAT IS A WEB DESIGN TEMPLATE?

A web site design template is a pre-made website design template which can be customized to reflect your company's branding. Website design templates can be found in various formats like Photoshop and HTML. Many times, these templates are compatible with HTML editors like GoLive, FrontPage, and Dreamweaver.
Web site templates can be very useful, they can be used by experienced web designers to 'jump-start' the creation of a website. They are also a way for people to put out great-looking web sites quickly with little or no knowledge of HTML and web design.

Use an HTML editor like FrontPage or Dreamweaver

HTML editors make building web pages feel like (to a certain extent) creating a document in Microsoft Word ... it's made pretty easy. But the downside is that you lose a certain amount of control of what you're doing and in some cases become dependent on the program.
