basics on how to create websites


Welcome to my first post on dreezle, where am interested in sharing my web design knowledge with you all. am going to explain some important things you need to know about how website are created from the beginning
When you are looking at a website, it is most likely that your browser will be receiving HTML (hypertext markup language)  and CSS (cascade style sheet) from the web server that hosts the site. The web browser interprets the HTML and CSS code to create the page that you see.
this are set of topics you should consider before starting your first web site. 

1. CHOOSE YOUR DOMAIN NAME
The first thing you need to do before anything else is to get yourself a domain name. This is the name you want to give to your website. . To get a domain name, you have to pay an annual fee to a registrar for the right to use that name. Getting a name does not get you a website or anything like that. It's just a name. It's sort of like registering a business name in the brick-and-mortar world; having that business name does not mean that you also have the shop premises to go with it.


2. EXPLORE OTHER WEBSITES YOU LIKE
Web design trends change rapidly. Do the research to see sites of your competitors or other businesses. Remember that you should look enough similar and at the same time enough unique compare to your competitors to stand out in the crowd.

3. ORGANIZE YOUR WEBSITE
Your menu items will depend on a type of your website and amount of information you have in each section. For an artist portfolio there could have sections, such as, About, Portfolio, Exhibitions, Bio and Contacts. A company site could have sections, such as, About, Products, Team, Shop, Contacts. You may add, delete or re-arrange sections as you wish.

4. YOUR WEBSITE’S LOOK AND FEEL
Before you start designing, think of how your website will feel and look for a visitor. You may choose few adjectives that would describe your site best e.g. light, white, minimalistic, colorful, etc. Remember to reflect on these adjectives every time you make a decision about colors, fonts, layout and other important web design elements.

5. COLORS FOR YOUR WEBSITE
Combine ideas from websites you like and your thoughts how it should feel and look to decide on the background, menu and header colors. choosing color palette for your website. Few main tips are (1) to use natural colors, (2) make a strong contrast between background and text, (3) select around 3 colors and use them throughout the entire website, and (4) take into account people with visual disabilities.

6. WEBSITE PHOTOS AND IMAGES
Many users place their art works as their main focus of their sites. In these situations photos and images should not contradict or disappear in background or elements of the web design. If your focus is not visuals, but text content and you do not have any photos, search for some relevant images in Internet with a high-resolution quality. Usually visuals convey message better than text.

7. WEB-FRIENDLY FONT
 They should fit in the overall web design feel and at the same time also needs to be web friendly. Since people have different fonts installed on their computers, it might be so that some stylish or rear fonts may look different on different computers. Safe choice is one of the classic fonts: Ariel, Verdana, Serif, Time New Romans, Courier and some others.
Remember: Check how your font looks on different browsers and operating systems

8. CONTENT FOR YOUR WEBSITE
You can write your content gradually, but it would be wise to put some main bullets of text beforehand to understand overall message of your website. Keep your text short – 2-3 sentences, because people do not like to read long texts. Integrate and remember keywords of each section to add in your SEO (search engine optimization tool). The tone of your text should fit your web design overall feel. There are plenty of web sources to structure and write a good content
