This site provides basic understanding of how a Web site gets online. This
includes information about finding a host and registering for a domain name.
Later sections discuss features that distract from Web pages and suggestions on
how to promote a site. The writing style is clear and conversational, often
providing small insights that might be assumed (and therefore overlooked) by
more experienced developers.

While specifics may not be up-to-date, the site provides basic understanding and
could be a useful start for someone interested in putting up a Web site for the
first time.

I was surprised that links are not provided for several useful references.

Technical Remarks:

HTML only.

As a tutorial, this site is useful for someone who does not know anything about
building a Web site. It explains the basic concepts involved in Web site
creation, including a very good explanation of HTML and other concepts. Very
useful for a novice Web designer.
