    First of all you need an html editor when I first started my first site that was like 5 years ago I used http://www.evrsoft.com/download/ you can download it for free. You have to make a main file called index.html and upload it so that when somebody goes to yourname.cjb.net that is the file that they will see.

    Welcome to the forum Luv2love.

    Find a 'simple' page you like and look at its' source code to see how others do it. Anything in a page you can click on
    is called a URL ( http://url.gumint.com ). In order to send people to other sites, including other HTML pages at your own site, you need to write a clickable URL into your page.

    The one page that most servers don't need to know about to go there is the index.html page - all lower case and with the .html versus .htm extension -- it's the page that's automatically loaded when it's there and another one isn't specified.

    Remember, the hardest part of any endeavour is starting - once begun, the rest is relatively easy. Good luck!
