Web publishing

Creating a website and placing it on the Web server. A website is a collection of HTML pages with the home page typically named index.html or index.htm. Websites are designed using Web authoring software which provides a graphical layout capability or by hand coding in HTML or both. Distributing the site requires copying the resulting HTML pages and graphic elements into the appropriate directories on the server. See Web authoring software, content management system and HTML editor.


Sample Site Outline
Web authoring programs such as NetObjects Fusion will automatically create a hierarchy for a typical public website and let you edit it however you wish. Such programs let you place text and images on a page and automatically create the complex navigation bars that let you link to all areas of the site. (Screen shot courtesy of Website Pros, Inc.)
