    G-Rice1990
      Hi everyone i need to make a website, I know all the basic features of DreamWeaver and I'm going to buy a domain from www.domain.com for two years for 30 dollars.

      I have two questions if i make a dream weaver html file with some links and pictures can i take the html of it and put it in the domain. Like i make website using Dream Weaver for fun and have links connected to another dreamweaver page and the internet and it works but i never tried publishing it to the internet. Can someone give me the steps.

          You'll find a good explanation of the basics by reading the
          Dreamweaver help file (press the F1 key).

                sorry for the double post. What im trying to say is that i know how to make a project using dreamweaver. But im saying like if i want to make a link i ussually make another dreamweaver page and then link it to the word that i want them to click on so that it works. And when i preview it, i tlooks great.
                But how do publish it im going to buy a domain for 30 dollars for 2 years from www.domain.com. Do i just copy the html code and paste it in my domain and then it will work or what.

                  OK, it sounds like you are registering a domain name for $30. You will also need to purchase a hosting plan and you have your domain point to the host servers. You then 'Put' your html files on that server. Make sense?

                    ok i'm buying a domain from domain.com where could i buy a hosting plan an dhow much do they cost. Ok when i buy a hosting plan i put the html code in the hosting plan and direct it to my website.

                    is this a good place to do everything:

                      I think you're getting ahead of yourself. Kind of like trying to run before
                      you have learned how to stand. I suggest you start here:

                      Beyond that be patient, take it a step at a time. Make sure you are
                      comfortable with each step before you even consider the next step.

                        Why doesn't the F1 key work?
