Tips How to Design a Web Page on Your Computer
A professional web design will be able to point out that there are many components which contribute to a good website design - accessibility design, interface or layout design, user experience design and of course the most straightforward, which is graphic design.
You only need to create a simple webpage for your website. It is the words and techniques, you used to sell your product or service, will generate more traffic to your website. If your aim is to get a site that sell up and running fast, then put up a simple site first and develop it later.
Before you begin designing a web page, you will need to download a Web Page Creator or Editor tool on to your computer. A Web Editor is a piece of software to create web pages that all hosting companies recognize. Some of the well known Editors recognized worldwide are MS Frontpage, Dreamweaver, Adobe GoLive, Kompozer and so on. Homesite4 is a great HTML editor which works well if you want to code your site from HTML.
The Web Editor coverts the text and content that you write on your computer into computer language for your web hosting company to understand and publish it to the World Wide Web. A free version of “Kompozer 0.8” can be downloaded online. Kompozer is a friendly Web Page Creator/Editor based on Nvu, another free WYSIWYG web editor. KompoZer runs on Windows, Macintosh and Linux., which will do the job for your website.
When you download the free Web Page Creater Kompozer, the downloading process is done in a zipped form. Further, you will have to unzip it on to your desktop using the extracting method. Installing ‘WinRAR’ program can do the extracting process fast and subsequently enable you to access the contents.
Once extracting is complete, click on the Kompozer icon on your desktop. You will be greeted with a window that contains a menu (the top line of the window that says "File Edit View Insert" etc), a few lines of toolbars (containing buttons like "New", "Open", etc), a left panel with a heading "Site Manager", and a large pane on the right-hand side that has a tab called "Untitled". This large pane is where you will design your web page.
Name that page a title you wish to give to your web page. Click the Format on the menu bar. A drop down menu “ Page Title and Properties “ appears. Enter the title name you wish to give to your web page and save it.
Now you can write the contents for your website on the web page creator. However, as a rule, remember to save all text and contents of your webpage in one single file folder of your computer drive.
As a web designer, you should design your websites to give your visitors the greatest ease of use, the best impression and most important of all a welcoming experience. It doesn't matter if you had the greatest product in the whole world -if your website is poorly done you won't be able to sell even one copy of it because visitors will be driven off your website by the lousy design.
When designing, always choose matching colors. An example of a matching color would be to have a dark background, with visible words and designs. With the dark theme, try not to mix too many bright colors into the design. It is a good idea to have text links and graphics to your web pages as well as buttons. Use jpg and gif graphics for your images. These are the two file formats universally used on the web, because they take up less space.
The most important rule of web design is that the content of your site must be interesting and worthwhile. If someone has found your website, you must give them a reason to stay on it. Create your website look different to the thousands of other sites.
The best route is to provide interesting web content that relates to the company you’re linking to. Make sure that when a visitor first visits your site, they can get what they want with one or more clicks of a mouse.
If you can’t write interesting web content yourself, there are many companies that will do it for you for a very reasonable price. Once you’ve got your content, you can weave your links throughout it. People will find your web page on search engines like Google, Yahoo and Ask.com and when they see the well-written content, they will hang around and read what’s on your site.
Once you have accomplished the task of writing contents on to the webpage, just save it. The main web page on a website is called a Home page. Home pages are always saved as ‘index.html’
Finally, save the file name correctly … go to menu bar and click ‘file save as’ and in the place “File Type” enter as ‘html’. You are now ready for publishing your website.
