impressive and effective. And here’s the best part: You’ll do it all with software and tools that won’t cost you a dime!

  • Explore HTML5 and JavaScript
  • Use video on your site–and get someone else to pay for hosting it

  • Adapt your site for easy viewing on smart phones and tablets.

 

Synopsis:

This is the "build your own Web site book" for everyone! Mark Bell doesn't just show novices how to create their own Web sites: he shows them how to create sites that use the newest Web 2.0 technologies to communicate more effectively than ever. He doesn't just walk through every step in plain, simple English: he shows how to use software and tools that don't cost a dime! One step at a time, readers will walk through planning and designing their sites, gathering their tools, creating content, building pages, using images, tables, and links, getting a domain name, uploading content to a working web server, and much more. Bell shows how to incorporate easy-to-update blogs, video, and animation... then offers specific models for several of the most widely-used types of personal and professional sites. He offers guidance on crucial issues like getting web sites noticed by search engines - and even adapting web sites for display on cellphones and other portable devices. There are other books for novices on creating new web sites - but none covers all these up-to-the-minute topics, and none will help them build sites this modern, inexpensive, and effective.
