Required Info needed to get Website posted online

Recommended Posts

I think I have mistakenly posted this as a reply to a posters post instead of STARTING MY OWN POST :angry:

 

I just need help.

I operate a small one man band business and 90% of all my customers are through referals/word of mouth.

Could someone please kindly tell me how to get a website public?

I have already obtained the services of a hosting company but want to know which tags are required to make the site visible to the web?

 

I do understand most of the other tags: html, head, title, body, etc but not the <Doctype, Public, etc?

 

NB: Hope one of the modurators will delete the post I sent as reply to another posters question.

Thanks

The doctype is the first tag on any website - read all about it here: W3School

 

There is no tag 'public'.

 

to get your website on the internet, you need to upload it to your hosting account. Here is some info on the basics: How to Build Websites

Making a website 'visible on the web' is as easy as uploading your code files to the Host FTP, and getting a domain name.

 

Your host should be able to tell you how to access your FTP and which folder you should put your files in.

 

Usually the folder is public_html or something similar.

 

 

Making a website 'findable' is a whole other matter and if you wish to learn more about optimizing search results for your site you should look up SEO (Search Engine Optimization). There are many things you can do inside and outside of your code that improve a site's 'publicity' in that way
