If you want to build your own website, no matter what technology you use to build your site, you can make it a great one – or a real loser. You can base it on HTML (HyperText Markup Language), CFML (Cold Fusion Markup Language), ASP (Active Server Pages), DHTML (Dynamic HTML), or any other alphabetical wonders you care to work with. It may sound blasphemous to a world that’s used to worshipping at the altars of the latest high-tech advances, but the real secret to making a Web site work is simple human insight.

Long before you set out to choose background colors or font types or graphical styles, you must get a solid grasp on the theme of your site. The theme is the unifying idea on which everything else in your site rests. Sometimes, the theme is simple and obvious. For a corporate recruiting site, the theme is why this company is the best place to work. For a genealogical site, the theme is the history of a single family and its offshoots.

There is very little you require to build a website and everything you need is available free space on the Internet. In other words, you don’t need to spend huge sums of money purchasing expensive software packages, programming manuals or web server space. You just need to know where to start.
