How to make websites If you know how to code a webpage in HTML ( it's easy to learn basic HTML ), Nearly Free Speech is good for hosting a website and setting up a domain name. Convenient website builders such as Weebly aren't much use, as they do not give direct access to the HTML code. By coding directly in HMTL, you have permanent ownership of your website. HTML is a standardised language, so you or your friends are free to modify the code in any way you like, and to host the website wherever you like. To see how easy HTML is, try your browser's "View source" command to see the HTML code for this webpage.
