How to Create Web Pages

The first thing you will need to do when creating your Home Page is to write the HTML files. If you are new to HTML, Speednet have provided you with links to some of the best tutorial sites to help you learn HTML.

Alternatively you can create web pages using a wysiwyg program such as Microsoft's HomePage or Adobe's PageMill, these will allow you to create HTML pages without having to learn HTML code.

When naming your files, please ensure that your first page is named index.html. This will ensure that the correct page loads automatically when a visitor goes to your site.

Once you have designed your Web Page, you will need to activate your space on the Speednet server.
