Get started now – no experience required!

How-to-build-websites.com is designed for total beginners … and for people who use apps like Dreamweaver and other wysiwyg apps (wysiwyg stands for: “What You See Is What You Get”) … and now want to learn what’s going on ‘behind the scenes’.

To really understand web design, you need to learn HTML hand-coding; it’s easier than you think!

Why learning HTML and CSS makes sense.

Web design apps like Dreamweaver are fine, but if you want to be able to build modern responsive HTML5 based websites, then these apps will get in the way of you learning (because you have to learn the app on top of the code) … and will actually slow you down!

Learning to build your web sites using HTML will give you far better control over the process, and ultimately your web sites. On top of that, you will have a far deeper understanding of the web, and as a result you will create better websites quicker – much quicker.

Three ways to learn web design:

  1. Buy my 5 star rated book on amazon.
  2. Get my interactive video course on web design … and it covers much more!
  3. Do this websites’ tutorial: Start Learning Basic HTML Concepts »
