Hi all,

Which programes can you use to publish your own websites for business or information ?

Can you use Expression Web? Or does it have to be something like Dreamweaver ?

What are the rules?

Thanks

There are no rules as to what to use to publish a website. To create it, you can use something as simple as Notepad, you can use either of the two you mentioned, or any one of the many others - free or purchased - that are out there. To upload your pages to your server, you need an FTP program - some of the web editors have an FTP feature installed, others (for example Notepad) will require a separate FTP program.

What you do NOT want is to use something like MS Word and 'save as Webpage', as the code that is created by word is an absolute nightmare.

P.S. - This information is applicable in the UK, too.

Use your web design program to upload or publish your web pages if it has an upload or publish function. If you use FTP software you will have to select the web files to be uploaded and initiate the upload. Remember that your home page should have "index.html" or "index.htm" as the file name. You can use there any program for publishing your website like FTP,Notepad for saving in MS Word. There is no any rule for which program using to publishing a website.

"MS Word" and "Website" should NEVER appear in the same sentence, unless a "do not use" is included.

Hi,

You need to learn the basics of web design, and all these questions will be answered.

Not to be a shameless self promoter, but my beginners web design course will answer these questions and a whole lot more. There are a bunch of free videos you can watch to.
