Hi, I am Daniel Davis. I am a certified computer expert and tech guru. Along with having one of the top tech channels on youtube, my work has also been featured in textbooks, software guides, and hundreds of popular tech blogs. And today I am going to be talking to you about HTML. Put it up in a web browser. So now that you have a web page how do you share it with others. Well, in order for people to access it on the internet, you have to actually upload it to the internet first. Doing that requires finding something called a hosting provider that lets you upload your website files and gives you a web address so that people can connect to it. There are many different hosting providers out there, some are free and some are expensive and the one you choose depends on your needs, so be sure to see what different hosting providers offer. A really good hosting provider for beginners is 000webhost.com. They are free, they have a good amount of features, and they don't put any ads on your web page. Select a free version and fill in the required information. They will send you an E-mail containing your registration information and you can use that to log into their site and use it. So, how do you use it. Well, after logging in you will see your signed domain name. A domain name is what people will type into their web browser to view your site, so go ahead and write this down, then beside your domain name click go to see your panel and scroll down to the files section, double click on the another file manager icon. This takes you to the file manager for your site. You should see a folder called public_html, anything that is put inside this folder will be added to your website. So double click on it and click on the upload file icon and browse for your index.html file, click open and then click okay. You should see it appear to the right, continue uploading files until you have uploaded every file that is a part of your webpage including pictures. Whatever page is named index.html or index.pagep is what is going to be the default page that shows up whenever somebody visits your site. Okay, now you can visit your website by typing in your domain name that you wrote down into the browser address bar and it should pull up your website live on the internet.
