At its core, a website is simply a folder full of different files that work together to create an end result viewable to the user. Just like when you wrote that 20 page final paper in college, each page & paragraph contributes to the end story just like a website does.
Believe it or not below is all you need to build your first website. It’s not pretty, nor is it very functional, but it shows how simple HTML can be. Throughout the Zero to Startup courses we will build new features on top of this basic template as we move along through the course.
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Website Name Here</title> </head> <body> <h1>Header 1 - (Site title)</h1> <p>paragraph tags (one of many)</p> <a href="https://www.useful.ly">url link</a> </body> </html>
