Create a Website Using HTML5
You want to create a website, but you just don't know where or how to start.
Before you start, answer this question.
Is your web page building experience going to be a one time venture or do you have intentions of learning the art so that you can create websites for yourself and others down the road?
If it's a one time venture, try the 'Free Website Builder' advertised on the top of this page. It's Easy, Fast and Affordable!

The best way to create websites is to learn a little HTML code and a lot of CSS (Cascading Style sheets).
