How do I create a webpage on Dream Host?

Hi everyone!

Well, I am not even sure where to begin. I suppose I should start by saying I’m happy to get in on the great deal in early January with Dream Host.

My goal is to create a very simple and basic website to help launch a new computer repair/service company I am trying in my home town.

Can anyone direct me in the right direction please?

Thanks,

It’s me,

Soar

Hello and Welcome to DreamHost!

In order to create a website there a few simple steps you need to do.

  1. Register a domain - This is done either when you initially sign up for DreamHost or in your web panel after. (Domains -> Domain Registration)
  2. Write your HTML/CSS code for the site - You can do this on your local machine using any text editor (i.e. - NotePad in Windows, or TextEdit on the Mac).
  3. Upload your content to your website - This can be done in a variety of ways; however, I’d recommend starting out using FTP. For more information on using FTP check out the wiki article at http://www.wiki.dreamhost.com/FTP
  4. You’re done! At this point provided all has gone well you should be able to go to your new website in your browser and see you’re marvelous creation :slight_smile:

I hope that helps!
