    Default Is there a tutorial for how to start your index page?

    Does anyone know of a guide, tutorial, example or such on how to actually begin making your index page using cpanel? For example, I can figure out how to do the index page if I choose to use front page, but what if you aren't going to go with front page? It would be great if someone could post a guide with step by step instructions on what to do when first making your index page. Hopefully there is an existing tutorial or something out there someone will know of.
    Thanks in advance,
    Nikki

    You sound like you want to know how to create web pages. That has nothing to do with CPANEL itself. I recommend you buy a book on HTML coding or perhaps look into something like Contribute, DreamWeaver or GoLive.

    If you can't afford that, then CPANEL does offer a rather basic HTML editor as part of the File Manager. Just create the index.html page in the File Manager and then click the link to edit it with WYSIWYG Pro.

    Paste this into a notepad doc, and save it as index.html then upload it to your public_html directory and call it from your browser.

    yourdomain.com will work fine.

    Code:
    <HTML>
    <HEAD>
    <TITLE>My 1st Page!</TITLE>
    <META name="description" content="">
    <META name="keywords" content="">
    <META name="generator" content="">
    </HEAD>
    <BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" TEXT="#000000" LINK="#0000FF" VLINK="#800080">
    
    Hello World. I'm online!
    </BODY>
    </HTML>

    You just made your first page.

    Good luck.

    Go to http://www.premierwebsitesolutions.com/learnhtml/ for simple html lessons. There are better sites out there, but I put this one together mainly to have a very simple introduction for our customers who want to learn it.
