Ok guys this is my second visit here since the forum started.Ive looked through various bits & bobs ..Thanks FE / Taran some of the questions are answered allready..

1st question is .I Hope I can explain this without my usual clarity..LOL.
If your designing a simple page with just a couple of hyperlinks buttons (say for additional info )then a contact link (email address)) How would you work out how much Space Or is it Bandwidth (size of site to Hire)to lease?? and how to you ensure it gets linked to a search engine ..
I Dont have any Web space to try anything on So no Idea of How to publish /upload etc..Other than making a page and sticking it on cd to view ..

and it obviously is, you would be best advised to use the free server space provided by your ISP. Virtually all of them (ISPs) provide this space, and usually there's far more than you'll need - you can get a very respectable web site inside 5 or 6Mb.

Most 'proper' web hosts provide various packages - the smallest of which always has at least 20 or 30Mb of space, but you will need your own domain name to use this service.

You'll consume virtually no bandwidth, because virtually nobody will be looking at your first site (aside from you, and perhaps us), so that will not be a worry. Bandwidth rises as more and more people visit your site and download pages - even more is consumed by image-rich sites, or those with files for download (PDFs etc.)

The best way to start web designing is.......to start web designing. Dive in and have a go. All of us made a bit of a mess of the first site we designed, but the more you do it the more you learn. Keep it very simple, and you'll be fine. Good luck, and let us have a look at your work when it's online.
