How to create/build your first Website & Webpage?

Updated on November 9, 2011

Website is a group of web-pages which are linked together via hyperlinks. Mainly there are two types of Website, dynamic version and static version.
Dynamic version: This type of websites generally store their data such as text and images at places like databases and scripts in the form of files such as web-pages. Web-pages get created automatically through these scripts when the data from databases are retrieved via browser. So, Most part of such websites work on a automated system. For example: Wikipedia, Hubpages, Orkut, Facebook etc.
Static Version: This type of websites generally have static web-pages means web-pages should be created by Web-masters(real humans) in offline mode before publishing on Internet. Users can only read the content on such websites. This type of websites require many human hours for to remain up-to-date.
Now you decide, which type of website you want to construct.


The basic building blocks of any website is HTML, CSS, You can start learning and can improve these languages at the links below:


if you finished your tutorials, then, the next step is to create your website's homepage and other pages of your site. You can group all the pages by links while using <a> tag. You can use <div id=section_name> - (known as division tag) for sections like 'header',' footer', 'sidebar', 'navigation bar' of your web-page while defining 'id', which has it's use in css.

Now, u can use 'css' to set layout of web page. Css helps u to define custom width, height, position, look of various elements such as text, images via tags, id. You can use internal as well as external CSS, with external css you can define the same structure of various pages.

<html>
<head>

<title></title>
<style> Used for internal stylesheet </style>
<link href="external_stylesheet_file_address" type=text/css />

</head>
<body>

<div id=header> Header section </a>
<div id=navigation_bar> 
	<a href="homepage.html">Homepage</a>
<!-- u can also use extensions like .php, .asp according to your scripting language -->
	<a href="about.html">About</a>
	<a href="contact.html">Contact</a>
<div id=left_sidebar> Left sidebar section </a>
<div id=main_body> Main body section </a>
<div id=right_sidebar> Right sidebar section </a>
<div id=footer> Footer section </a>

</body>
</html>
/* We can use css with html like this */
body {
width: 960px;
border: red;
color:blue; /*modifies the text color*/
}

#header {
width: 950px;
padding: 5px;
background-image:url(image_url);
}
#navigation_bar {
width: 950px;
padding: 2px;
background-color: green;
height: 40px;
}
#main_body {
width: 500px;
height: 500px;
visibility: overflow;
}
#left_sidebar {
width: 225px;
border:green;
height: 100px;
float:left; /*this code keeps the left sidebar in left side */
}
#right_sidebar {
width:225px;
height:100px;
float:right;
border:green;
}
#footer {
width:950px;
padding: 5px;
height: 75px;
background-color: blue;
}

For constructing dynamic version, you need to learn one or more programming languages from PHP, ASP, AJAX, JAVASCRIPT, XML etc. Along with this u also need to learn,"how to connect webpages to database via scripts".
You can learn sql (structured query language) at http://www.w3schools.com/sql/default.asp, But I will recommend you to learn 'interaction with database' simultaneously with any programming language such as "PHP with MySql.

For Constructing Static version, You can start creating web-pages with Html and css only. If you face any problem or need help in HTML, CSS, PHP, Mysql or any other related topic, You can ask here in the comment section, I will try my best to solve that issue.

Thanks for reading, yours Shrikrishna (Web-designer by interest).

/* php code of retrieve, update, delete while interacting with database */

/*Retrieval code:*/ $retrieve=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM Table_name WHERE attribute='value'");

/*Update code:*/ $update=mysql_query("UPDATE table_name SET attribute1='value1',attribut2='value2' WHERE attribute='value'");

/*DELETE code:*/ $delete=mysql_query("DELETE FROM table_name WHERE attribute='value'");

/* mysql_fetch_array(); This  function is used for storing data in variable as stated below*/
$store=mysql_fetch_array($retrieve);

/*we can display data on web-pages with echo command */
echo $store['attribute_name'];
echo $store['attribute_name2'];

      Thanks Luke-l For you comment, I will definitely publish a new hub in a day or Two with title "How to Create a simple Webpage".

      @agvulpes, Well, I use dream-weaver and really it's a great product which speed up your work by automatically suggesting tags, grouping interrelated files together, color scheme in codes, But I prefer to write my own code and keep learning instead of using those codes which were written by dream-weaver Programmers, And all the code that I've written here is directly typed on hub-pages editor.

      Interesting Hub and I enjoyed reading your building methods. I would be interested to know if you are using a program such as Dreamweaver?

      Excellent! I like it, no tables just css... maybe some knowledge is needed for some people... just create them a hub with an example to make simple page... examples are the best ways, no? :)

      Thanks bloodrk for visiting and commenting here, As you know today you can find the thousands of article written on 'designing your website', Then I decided to write an article having both 'live codes'(written by me only) with explanation as well as having access to those tutorials(not my website) which are easy to understand from which I also gained lots of knowledge.

      I also tried to provide some information on how different types of website works/constructed... Hope, In my next article, I will try my best make it simple as possible.

      Sorry to say this but for an average person who doesn't have the know how on this stuff it'll be very difficult to understand it's too technical.. anyway you made great hubs and this one's good. just make it more simpler.. Cheers!.
