Ever thought to start your own website? Today I will help you do that. Let’s start from scratch. HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. It is a simple and easy to learn language which gives instructions to a web browser on how to display data(images, texts, videos, audio, etc.).
Hope you are not interested in knowing the history related stuffs about HTML. So I am simply skipping all those things. Before we start I assume you have:
1. A Windows PC
2. Basic knowledge on text editor like Notepad.
If you have both, move ahead!

STEP 2: Save your HTML File: Go to File>Save As

Enter the file name as shown above, here I have given “pagename.html” which can be anything but ending with “.html”.
Important step: Under the Save as type field choose “All files” instead of “Text Document” which is default.
STEP 3: View the Saved web page in Browser
Now right click on previously saved “pagename.html” and click on Open With then choose any of the web browser from there. It will open the output of your previously typed HTML code.
You will see the output in the browser which is your first web page. Yes, you have made your first web page.
