Web Design Workshop: Free Web Hosting

Yes, it’s out there. If you want to put up a personal page you don’t need to go through all the trouble of buying a domain name and paying for space. The only trade off is that your site will have banner ads, pop-ups, and/or ads on the side column (“free” is a relative term on the internet).

Break Your Design

Friday, September 2nd, 2005

Is the design for your main page ready? Good. Now let’s break it apart.

Organize Your Website

Thursday, August 25th, 2005

Before you jump right in to build your website, take a few moments to arrange it in an orderly, logical way. I don’t know about you, but I hate it when I go to a website and all the information, and I mean all of it, is on the main page.
