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
<html>

Here is an example of the worlds simplest website


<html>
<head>
<body>

Hello Everyone!

</body>
</head>
</html>

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
