Publishing and Testing
When you're finished with your site and have your files just as you like them, save them as Web Page, Filtered. This step ensures cleaner HTML. At that point, you should be ready to post your creation, which you'll do by copying your pages onto a web server, and you'll likely do that through some variation of the following process:
- Find a hosting service.
- Secure a domain name and pay for hosting.
- Use the host's recommended process for uploading your site.
Once you have your site up and running, test every link in as many browsers as you have at your disposal. Check every page carefully, as errors tend to creep in. Save any fixes to the files on your local computer, before transferring them to overwrite the ones on the web. Send out your web site address to friends and ask them to try the site to ensure that the links work and all the graphics come through.
If all seems to be functioning well, post the site and put your feet up. That didn't take long, did it?
