Chapter 17. Make a Web Site > Make the first web page

Make the first web page

The first page in a web site is typically called the "home" page. It's like home base, or the table of contents in a book. The visitor should know what this site is about, what other information is available from here, and it should be clear how to get to that other information. In this tutorial, you'll make a small site about yourself, but of course you can change any of the text and graphics to anything you want!

Name your first web page

Before you type onto the page, you should save and name it. The first page of every web site in the world always has the same name: index.html (well, there are slight variations, but you don't need to worry about that). So the file name of your home page will be index.html. Every web page is considered an "html" page.
