My son wants to make a website, his father is a web designer and is refusing to help him so it's down to me to learn how to do it myself and then teach him!!

So does anyone know where I can find info on how to make a website or any good sites we can use?

Perhaps start by getting an HTML editor, such as CoffeeCup -

Then Google for 'HTML tutorials' and you should get loads of short guides to coding in HTML which will get you started in creating a webpage.

If you need webhosting, try starting with a free hosting account, say at and then once you have got to grips with that, head over to low cost commercial hosting so that you get rid of the adverts, I find a reliable low cost webhost.

Also check out your local library for books on HTML, Website Design and the such. Many libraries have these books, and learning from a book can be easier than reading an online tutorial.

\link{Moonfruit do free websites} and have easy steps to make it up}. I did one for my company and DS age 10 now has done a couple of websites himself, with very little help from me. Don't have to use HTML all done in WYSIWYG
