Web Page Design Overview - The Process of Creating a Web Page
(Page 2 of 5 )

1. Formulate your idea

Why do you want a web page?

What information would you like to present?

2. Explore the options

See what kinds of elements you can incorporate in your page by looking at other pages.

3. Gather your materials

Take inventory such as text and graphics that you can use.

4. Create the HTML coding

Behind every web page there are HyperText Markup Language (HTML) codes that makes the page appear the way it does.

5. Check your progress

As you develop the coding, open Internet Explorer to check your progress.

6. Transfer the files at one of the web-hosting site server

To make your page public, your HTML files must be uploaded to a  web-hosting site server.

7. Test, tweak, and publicize it

Open your web browser, and go through your page to make sure all the elements appear properly and test all links to make sure they work.
