LT 1.1 HTML basics – Hosting and file management

The task

The Norwegian Seafood Council wants to promote the health benefits of Norwegian salmon to the local and international market. You need to create an informative website for this purpose. (This is a fictitious client and project).

Part 1

You need to come up with a list of at least five domain names the client could purchase. Use a domain registration directory like GoDaddy to see what domain names are available. Design a one-page document you would present to your client with the domain name suggestions. 

With the list of possible domain names, you also need to provide the client with costs and a motivation for each option. The motivation can include how descriptive, short or unique it is. Post this document as a pdf or jpeg on your blog.

Part 2

Create very basic wireframes for the website, showing at least three pages. These can be low tech wireframes that show planning for the page structure and navigation.

Part 3

Create the structure for the HTML files and folders of the web page. Think about the root folder and name the folders correctly. Firstly, sketch out what the structure will look like. Then, set these up, so you are ready to code your website.

Open Adobe Dreamweaver. Click on the ‘Create New’ button, and under ‘Document type’, choose HTML. Keep the ‘Framework’ as none since we will not use a Bootstrap framework. You can give the file a name, call it ‘home’ and the ‘Doc Type’ should be HTML5.

This will open a blank document in Dreamweaver. You will see a tab called ‘Untitled-1’ in the top left bar. This is because the file is not yet saved. Hit ‘save’ and save the file as Index.html in the correct folder of the folder structure you created. One HTML document called ‘index.html’ is enough for this LT.

Remember, this structure should be set up so that it can be uploaded to a hosting server without disrupting the file paths. When you are done, take a screenshot of the folder and, together with the sketch of your structure, upload it to your WordPress blog.
