Learning HTML For Creating Websites!

Using Internet/Website is part of my daily routine, and I always wonder how it works. Why does a single command/click allow you to communicate everything, amazing! It must be HTML-Hyper Text Markup Language.

I always say to myself, "Learning HTML is difficult", and every time I see ( br, a href, h1,h2, h3, div, img, p, tr, pre, and a lot of < >) I can easily say “Oh my head aches”. It is because I don't know anything about it, or shall I admit that I’m just being lazy about learning new things. However, I'm starting to learn it, and somehow I've learned the basics. I used to call these symbol ( <> ) as "greater than and less than signs", but now... I call it as "tags"! (see? I've learned! Don't you agree? ) It all began with an HTML tutorial, and I found it useful for creating websites.

Now, I wanted to start creating a Website from a scratch. Is it possible to create one even though I don't have enough knowledge to do it? Well, nothing is impossible if you are surrounded by Web Developers.
( I hope they aren't busy!) I'm using this blog for my reference in the future, so I won't forget what I'm learning. Lessons will be updated from time to time by chance. Feel free to learn with me as I learn step by step. I appreciate any questions to motivate me to update it!

Lesson 2 - Using FTP

A File Transfer Protocol known as FTP is to transfer data from one computer to another through a network, such as the Internet. We can also use the control panel of 000webhost.com that we have registered, but it will be more easier to use FTP. You can download free FTP software and have it install to your PC.

Lesson 1 - Web Hosting

As a start, We need to have a web hosting service that allows us to provide our own website accessible via the World Wide Web. We will be using a Free Web Hosting. All we need to do is to sign up so we can get our own account details and everything. After having this activity, we will proceed into HTML coding and preview it online. Sounds good! Let's try?!

Step 1: Sign Up and "Create My Account"

Step 2: After signing up you will be receiving an Account Information: Domain name, Username, Password, FTP host, FTP username, FTP password and other account info.

Step 3: Once the account is successfully created it will automatically active. Try to open a browser and test your new website! ex. www.ithink.net84.net. A default preview shows like the image below:
