Topic: HTML Basics

Creating an HTML file

Details

The file extension for HTML files is .html. To create a new HTML file in your text editor, create a new file and then save it. In the dialog that pops up, give it a name and add the .html file extension at the end.

The home page for your website is usually given the name of index.html. Other HTML files for a website can have more descriptive names, like about.html or contact.html.

If your file name needs to contain multiple words, use hyphens to separate the words, like about-us.html or contact-us.html.

Exercises

Using your text editor, try creating two or three HTML files. Give them different names using the naming conventions described in the Details section.
