November 25, 2017: Last Chapter Update: Setting up your Domain (Web Hosting Tutorial)
HTML stands for the HyperText Markup Language. Web sites are created with the codes of the HTML language. HTML is extremely easy to learn, and it's completely free to code web sites with it. (You don't have to pay a license fee to use HTML.)
HTML allows web sites to bring together graphics, music, video and links. The HTML code you type can be viewed on any computer. If you type it on a Windows PC, it can be viewed on both Windows and Apple computers, and if you type it on an Apple Mac, you can view it on both Macs and PCs. It doesn't matter what computer someone uses, as long as it has Internet access.
The basics of the HTML language are easy to learn with a few short lessons.
(You might be asking "What's a Web Host?" A web host is the company that runs the server computer that your .com is loaded on. You pay about $5 to $10 a month to have your own .com with super-fast loading speeds.
This tutorial is for anyone who is serious about learning HTML code. Perhaps you want your own web page, or an entire web site. Perhaps you're setting up a web site for your business or organization. You've come to the right place.
You do not need any prior experience in making web pages to take this course (although I will assume you know how to do some basic things with your computer, like type a paper.)
This tutorial is a "hands on" tutorial... you get to test your new HTML skills immediately after you learn the code, chapter by chapter ... all within your web browser! There is no need to go fiddle with other applications while you are learning HTML code with this tutorial.

Making a great web site is much more than just coding HTML. You need to be successful at presenting your ideas in an interesting manner, whatever your topic may be. Ignorance may be bliss for the one who writes the web site, but that's rarely the case for the one who visits it. If your site looks unprofessional, so will your reputation. You may need to hire a professional web designer like FastDesign to make your site looks appealing to your readers. You should also think about implementing on-page search engine optimization best practices. Applying SEO best practices will help search engines better identify website and index it properly, as well as help it with overall ranking.
