Hi ESvid friends searching for information regarding the index.html file of a web-site. This video was 2nd in a series of videos I made for a course I taught long ago.
If you need to create an index.html
- Go here htmlshell.com/
- Adjust the settings to your liking
- Copy/Paste into an empty HTML file (you can make one in notepad)
- Save the file as index.html into your web-sites folder.
I hope that helps you in your journeys.

Hello, I have created my website using notepad editor. I didn't create index.html file because I didn't know about it at that time. I created a file folder My Webpage under a document. When I click my webpage file, I have many html files, pictures and videos. Where do I create index.html and my main page is funaramas page. Thank you.

index.html needs to be in the root directory. Which means the top level. Everything else is on you to organize into folders.

I'm amazed my 7-year-old video is still helping folks on youtube! I'm not affiliated with them whatsoever but www.freecodecamp.org/learn/responsive-web-design/basic-html-and-html5/ is a great resource for anyone wanting to become HTML masters.

Hi Titima, Assuming you already have a hosting service, you will simply need to use a FTP (file transfer protocol). The most popular FTP is Filezilla filezilla-project.org/ After you login to your hosting provider via FTP you simply drag and drop the folder.
