Not knowing exactly what to do, I purchased a package from Go Daddy that included hosting and software called Website Tonite. The software allows you to create web pages by entering text. The software creates a html page.
Would I use the Go Daddy package again? No. But it was good for where I was at the particular time. I really lacked the confidence in my ability to build a web page. If you read on further episodes of this web diary, you will discover better ways of doing this.
Many web hosts offer website building software. They really are quite good if all you need is a simple page. The advantage is that you can put a page up very quickly. The software offers you a selection of templates. You choose one you like. Then all you have to do is type in your text. The software then loads your page on the server. You have a working website!
The disadvantages to using website builder software is that you are restricted in your design options. Most hosts also charge a fee for providing this software.
So, if you need to make a website really quickly, and you do not want to learn about websites and uploading pages to webservers, this online software just may suit you.
