Unit 4 – Webpages and Websites

Methods to Create Web Pages (Multiple pages is a website)

1)  Text Based Web Page Creation:  Any program that allows you to type text (including programs like Notepad on Windows Computers) could actually be used to create web pages using a programming language HTML (HyperText Markup Language)

Example of HTML Code

<u>About Me</u>
<p>This web page is about me, the sports I like, the food I eat and the things I do
<h1>About Me</h1>
<p>This is some text about me …..

2)  WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) Web Page Creation:  A web page editing program which provides an editing interface which resembles how the page will be displayed in a web browser.  Many WYSIWYG editors will also allow you to add HTML code.

Popular Web Page Creation Programs

  • dreamweaver
  • coffee cup
  • google sites

These programs allow you to create websites mirrors which you can then upload to a web hosting service so it can be viewed on the internet.  This service may be provided free by your ISP (Internet Service Provider – Hurontel, EastLink etc) or you may have to pay for this service.  There are many web hosts on the intermet.
