So if you have any sort of notepad or text editor, did you know you can create a webpage?

Many people just don't realize you just have to save your text to a index.html file extension and the
internet will do the rest.

The language you need to allow the web to read your site for HTML is the code below - Keep in mind that
this is the very BASIC version

To start a page and to have the internet read it correctly you need to tell it what it is, in this case you need
to tell the web that it is a HTML page. This opening text does just that

Here is an example of the worlds simplest website


Hello Everyone!


If you copied and pasted this into your text editor, then saved it as a index.html file and uploaded
this to your server, you would have a website.

Notice the </html> the trailing / is needed to tell the web that you are ending your document.

I will be going into more advanced segments soon, but this is the basics of HTML coding
