Picture of How to Build your own website
A fully covered guide to getting from paper to the web, for free if you want, especially if any friendly webmasters owe you a few favours but even with little experience and knowledge you can build a site and get it on to the web like so:...

Step 1: Tools, materials and basic skills.

Fo making your site you will need:

- A computer, preferably less than five years old
- A copy of dreamweaver (optional) but it's what I know and will be showing you on that
- A copy of photoshop, non essential but definitely a must for anyone who wants a nice looking site
- A connection to the internet on your computer, preferably a fast one (because it makes things quicker)

- An idea
- Some Disk space, depending on what your site's for
- Time, yes it's a material a valuable one at that
- A working E-mail adress if you need one they're free from Gmail and hotmail

Basic skills
- A basic knowledge of how to use your computer, the internet
-This is a codeless intstructable, it's for people that want to make a site but don't have any idea how
- Some design skills would be handy
- Knowing how to use photoshop would be nice, paint.NET or GIMP

ok i want to make a website that will allow you to buy time slots to feed fish in my tank can you help me with that? cause its gonna require some code....maybe
killerjackalope (author)  conrad24687 years ago
I don't quite understand what you want to do, are you wanting to sell people feeding time or what?
oi plans changed ok here it is people pay to see the fish get fed the people who dont pay get an "off line for feeding if you want to see the fish get fed buy a time slot" message so only people who pay can view the camera @ say 12-12:15 only during feeding...i need a fullscreen mode so it can be as original as the fireplace on dvd if this still complicates you let me know and ill try harder..
What undoable?
what are you talking about?
I really have no idea

I need the link to download dreamweaver
killerjackalope (author)  bounty10126 years ago
It's on macromedia but you only get 30 days, unless you buy it or somehow enter the correct keys without using such evils as a KEYGEN...
Im just going to use google pages but the link to download would be nice and for some reason I cant download it.
this might seem stupid, but... what is a flash button?
killerjackalope (author)  bobo_the_clown7 years ago
A flash button is a simple button made in flash, they can have fancier effects and animations as they're made as animations...

what is the web site where u get the free web hosting
killerjackalope (author)  Charger_067 years ago
110mb.com It gives you 5GB storage and 300GB bandwidth/month and it's fast and doesn't seem to go down much
Thanks! I've been looking for a good one for a while now
killerjackalope (author)  LinuxH4x0r7 years ago
Well I hope to see a good site from you soon...
half assed one right now


How did that tk thing work? I tried and it didn't let me (it has the picture with the word, and it doesn't like me)

killerjackalope (author)  LinuxH4x0r7 years ago
You make your .tk domain thing, the name bit that is and simply add the URL of your homepage, it seems to be a litle bit funny, mine used to navigate off the .tk on to the actual site, linking tot he index page helps sometimes, if you want I'll set it up for you...
Yeah, that would be great. It didn't like the captcha (? is that the right word for the picture of the letters?), and wouldn't let me make it. Thanks so much!
you can use co.nr
cool, thanks!
killerjackalope (author)  LinuxH4x0r7 years ago
umm PM me your email and details of the account you want...
If you are partial to scripting in PHP, 110mb.com offers it too. Doubt you will find a free one that allows you to script in .NET or ASP.
killerjackalope (author)  blodefood7 years ago
They let you script in alot of languages and allow advanced SQL's but you have to activate them, not at any cost it's just them keeping server demand acceptable.
do u have any more cause this one don't work i cant fill out the registration form or will u make me and account
killerjackalope (author)  Charger_067 years ago
sure can you giv me an email and you'll get the confirmation form (just PM the address to me and if you want legit the name of you and adress... not worth the bother...) What do you want it to be called ?
bdblock947 years ago
you can also upload your own
killerjackalope (author)  bdblock947 years ago
Oh right they didn't have that option before when I last used them... By the way there's a reply button at the bottom right of comments, otherwise people wont know you replied, I knew because this is my 'ible but in future the reply button is the way to go....
bdblock947 years ago

killerjackalope (author)  bdblock947 years ago
Aye but they make you use templates....
