Hello. I decided, basically yesterday, to pursue graphic design and web development. So I literally just started learning about how it works. In other words, you’re about to read some super basic questions.
I want to make sure I’m understanding things correctly. If someone could help me, I’d appreciate it so much.
To aid in my learning, I created a project for myself. My goal is to create a website that I will use to blog about a hobby of mine. I really didn’t know what to give myself as a deadline to have it up and running… So, I’ll be happy if I can have it online before New Year’s, but I’ll try to have it up sooner if I can.
Yesterday and today, I read about software and hosting companies. So, is this information right?:
-I can write the code for my website and test it in software like Adobe’s Dreamweaver CS5.
-When I’m ready, and I subscribe to a hosting service, I can “upload” my website…??
I also want to ask, is Dreamweaver the best software to use for this?
And I know I’m far ahead of myself, but when it comes to dealing clients, how do you handle getting a hosting service for the site your are making for them? I mean, will they get it themselves? Will you get it for them, but input all their info? How does that work?
And if anyone knows a great place to learn code for free or at a reasonable cost, I would be ever grateful if you’d share them with me.
Thank you very much.
