INTRODUCTIONIntroductionWelcome to Create Your Own Website!

As the popularity of the Internet and the World Wide Web have risen since its beginnings in the early 1990s, virtually all businesses have established an online presence. Many individuals, too, have left their imprints on the web, creating a website for their family, or posting pictures of their vacations. If you want to join the millions of people who have created websites, but fear you lack the background or expertise for such an endeavor, this book is for you!

In this book you'll see just how easy creating a website can be. The CD included with this book contains four professional website templates and a free web page editor. With the web page editor you can quickly and easily customize the provided templates into your very own personal websites. Using the web page editor is as simple as using a word processor program. It's just point and click!

Since there are a number of different types of websites on the Internet, this book's CD includes four different templates for four different types of sites. Specifically, the four provided templates will let you quickly create the following types of sites:

  1. Family websites—With a family website you can share pictures of you and your family with friends and members of your extended family.

  2. Hobby websites—A hobby website allows you to share your hobbies with others who have similar interests.

  3. Community websites—With a community website your church, club, bowling team, or other group or association can post information, schedules, pictures, and other pertinent information.

  4. Onlinestorefront website—Sell products online by accepting credit card payments with an online storefront site.

In addition to showing you how to build your own websites from the ground up, this book also includes four chapters on how to use existing web applications to quickly create common websites. Specifically, you'll see how to:

  • Sell products at eBay Stores—eBay Stores are a quick and easy way to start selling products online. With eBay Stores, your products are listed on eBay.com and payment processing is handled for you by eBay. You simply list your products for sale and ship them when purchased!

  • Publish content online with a blog—A blog is a type of website designed to allow a user to quickly and easily publish content online. Blogs are springing up all over the World Wide Web, used by both individuals and businesses alike.

  • Share your digital pictures—You've just gotten back from your vacation to Tahiti with gobs of digital pictures. How do you easily share these beautiful pictures with your friends and family? Digital picture sharing websites make it easy to upload your pictures, share them with select friends and family, and order prints.

  • Create a Homepage on MySpace—MySpace is one of many "social networking" websites, where visitors can stay in touch with friends, meet their friends' friends, and make new social contacts. In addition to maintaining and growing your network of friends, MySpace makes it easy for you to create your own web pages, post pictures, share music, and host a blog.

Whether you want to build your own, unique website or use a pre-existing web application, you'll learn everything you need to know to start building your own website today with this book. Get ready to see just how fun and easy it is to create your very own websites!
