Make a personal website

Everything you need to build a personal website from scratch

There are many benefits to having a personal website with a custom domain. While there are many paid services that make it easy to create and host a personal website, they can be costly and can lack full customization features. The alternative is to write your own website from scratch using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. This can seem daunting if you have no programming experience, but it's actually easier than ever to learn the basics and make your own beautiful, fully customizable website. This course goes over all the steps of finding a template, customizing the code, and deploying the website with a custom domain. Learning these skills will give you a key technological advantage and can serve as a gateway to mastering many other aspects of technology!
