Getting Started with my own website

I have a website that I bought through godaddy. What program do I use to start building code? How do I plug my code into that address? Can I use the site start messing around with coding work that no one can see?

I really don’t know where to begin on this. Any direction is helpful.


the domain name you bought wasnt really necessary. you wont need it for a while

if you wanna start messing around with code you should start working on the freecodecamp curriculum

you will need a code editor. for now codepen should be enough

youre going to get stuck a lot and thats ok. so if you need help, come to this forum and ask questions. thats what were here for

happy coding

you might want to refund your site for now. I didn’t buy a domain for about 6 months after I started coding.

Thanks. Yes, I did some of the curriculum last year but got side tracked. Now I want to see if I can use the curriculum to build my own thing as I go.

The domain is fine for now. I’ve just got a basic layout for now, all I need.

If you have a site with godaddy, I would recommend simply placing a index.html file in your www/html folder and just play with some css/html there
That’s the simplest way to get a static site up

Yes sir that 's what I’m looking for. Cheers!

no worries! it may not be called www/html I haven’t used them in a while. However, whatever the “active” directory is, is where that index file needs to go.
