If you got any error message, it could be possible that your domain has not been routed to your hosting yet. Depending on the domain registrar and your hosting company, this process can take anywhere from 24-72 hours. In my case, the Webpage hosting we use and recommended to you, and the domain registrar we suggested to you route or point the domain to our hosting immediately. 2. Another reason why you might get an error is that maybe you entered the name- servers incorrectly. Double check this before proceeding if you got an error. Go to Page 23. 3. Make sure you name your home page ‘index.htm’ or ‘index.html’. Check the spelling. Any of these two files is what the web browswer will look for if they exists. If they were mispelled, you will get a not found error message on the browser. 4.

  57. 57. Author: Janet M. Garcia How to Create Your First Website in Less Than 2 Hours Fonts and Fonts and Images Basics Images Let’s start now to make our page more presentable. Fonts When selecting fonts, we must stick to what’s called ‘web safe fonts’. These fonts are fonts that are standard and available in any computers nowadays. Using these fonts will ensure your webpage displays as you intended it to be; at least, as close as possible. If you chose non web save fonts and someone doesn’t have that fancy font installed on their computer, your font will be replaced with one of the standard web fonts and your layout will look weird. This is why it’s very important to stick to web safe fonts. Good web safe standard font choices are: ArialIf you have a friend who Helveticawould like to take Trebuchetadvantage of the Times Romaninformation given Comic Sanswithin this eBook, Georgiajust redirect them to:www.EmpowerToChange.com 58 Copyright © 2011 Unlimited Concepts and Empower You!

Garcia How to Create Your First Website in Less Than 2 Hours Fonts and A Note About Images Images Even though you can resize an image using the handles, it is recommended that you have the images at the exact dimension before placing them in your web page. The reason is because, even though you resize the image and make it smaller, the image will still be loading at the actual size and then the browswer will resize it to your specification; so the file size will still be the same, not smaller.
