Recommended Posts

I have a web hosting account and a domain through Go Daddy.com and I just have a question as I'm new to this whole web hosting thing.I uploaded my first page (as index.html) and that worked. Now I want to upload a second page.....but I have no idea how to do that. Can anyone help me figure out what you upload the subsequent pages as, and how to do so.Thank You!!!

Well, just upload another file just like you did with your index.html file and you are set. Code a link from each page to connect them and you have the beginning of a site.index.html

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"><html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><head><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" /><title>Hello World</title></head><body><br />Hello World!<br /><br /><a href="goodbye.html">Say Good-Bye now!</a><br /><br /></body></html>

then create, save and upload:goodbye.html

just my opinion,drop go daddy as soon as you can and go with yahoo web hosting,i use that and it just flow very smoothly, not to mention the customer support is fantastic, email and account users are easy, an if you are needing a shopping cart, i am surely yahoo's is better that go daddy ( i just think it is a stupid name).finally and yahoo provides you with page building tools, also support for other tool building softwares.Pages uploads and ftp access are a breeze.good luck

sweet. eventually (as others have mentioned) you might yourself wanting a better hosting service. I wouldn't rush off and switch services, GoDaddy will suffice for now. But you will likely see a need to move on pretty soon. Personally, since we all seem to be chiming in here, I prefer Crystal Tech but there is a whole thread that discusses the various hosting services used by members.Glad to see you off to a good start.:)

HostGator seems to have great reviews but I think it would be a safe bet that they are over selling themselves. They are betting on the fact nobody will ever come close to those numbers and if someone did then everyone else on the overcrowded server gets screwed. I have read countless reviews of other hosts that have this problem.
