This beginner's tutorial is a guide through the entire process of building a Web site. The tutorial has six chapters. Chapter 1 - Hosting Your Site Chapter 2 - What the Heck is HTML? Chapter 3 - The Domain Name Game Chapter 4 - Web Graphics Basics Chapter 5 - Top Ten Signs of an Amateur Site Chapter 6 - Promoting Your Web Site
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.

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.
