    Any Ideas??? What I did is created folders and saved the HTML files in these folders. Is this OK?

    Well yes that is it. But to host you have to get a domain name from the provider and then get it hosted too and you are done! But are you sure you want only HTML files there??? Won't there be any business logic or database. Wont it be interacting with the users????

          Hello Bro:

          I want to create several HTML Pages for Several Groups like: Soldering, Electronic Components, Consumer Electronics and so on.... What I did is that created Folders with these names and saved the HTML files in them and uploaded onto the server. But I am not sure if this is the correct process.

            So you've got them as directory folders, or do you want them as sub-domains?

            eg:
            http://www.electronicsandyou.com/soldering
            http://www.electronicsandyou.com/electronics
            http://www.electronicsandyou.com/consumer
            ...are directory folders. Just upload the folders and files. THOUGH... merely moving html files into folders won't work right. The links to other pages might break. Unless you've moved them within a program like Dreamweaver which can change the links automatically as they're moved.

            Then there's also this:
            http://soldering.electronicsandyou.com
            http://electronics.electronicsandyou.com
            http://consumer.electronicsandyou.com
            ...are sub-domains. If you've got cPanel with your webhosting that's easy enough to set up. You'd still the directory folder approach, and then fix the redirection in cPanel.

              NONE. I know how to make sub-domain. I just wanted related pages in one group the way we do here at HP.

              The method I used ( Creating Folders and Saving HTML Files in them) is the Correct method.

              This thread is closed now.

              Thanks for your valuable time.

        Looks like you have already setup the whole site. Now what?

    Try using a PHP MYADMIN with MySQL. This way, you can create a database for any group you want, and have them filed away conveniently. Go to http://www.w3schools.com for tutorials. Good luck.
