You can start a web page easily, but after you have designed it on your machine, you will need to put it up on a computer that serves the web. You can use your own server, rent space on someone elses, or find a place that will allow you free space to put up your web page for you. You can find these free sites by doing a search on the Internet. On some sites, you have to pay to put your web page up. These might, in some cases, be better though they cost more. You can also download programs to help you with your HTML. If you are a beginner you might want to look into software that will help you develop your page. Just a few examples are Frontpage, Hot Dog Professional, Claris' Homepage and many more. These will also cost you money.
