Publish Your Web Page
Now that you have an html web page built what do you do with it?
- First you will need to find a Host. There are several "free" web hosting companies out there but you will have to deal with pop ups and advertising. We offer web hosting packages for most any need for as little as $4.95.
- Next you will need to upload that new page or pages and all related files to the computer on your host. Most web hosting companies offer some sort of file manager but the best way in my opinion is to upload via an FTP manager. Such as WSFTP. Your host will have all the information on how to FTP in.
- For your main/home/default page you need to name it index.html so that the world can see it by entering www.mywebpage.com instead of www.mywebpage.com/myhomepage.html. Not to mention the browser will give a 404 not found error!
- This is a very important step in publishing your work all to often over looked. Check & Test your work! The reason I have Check & Test AFTER publish is because no one will ever so your web page until you Promote it or it lays dormant several years and a bot happens to find your content more relevant than others or you use words that no one else uses.
Now sit back and enjoy the fruit of your labor!
