Having a home page is sometimes all it takes for someone to access information about your business.

You can Create Your Own Web Page
It is always a good idea to have a look at other home pages to get an idea of what you want, but if you are not a tech-head and are not sure of the right techniques for making a web page look great, there are people who will do it for you. There are free tutorials that you can download which will show you how to create a website, guiding you through the process of creating the pages, that all important ‘about’ page, a links page, a feedback form and a site map. Remember that if you want people to be interested in your web page you will need a set of links leading to resources related to your business. The tutorial will take you step by step through everything on how to actually get a good domain name set up, as well as the process of registering a domain name. With website design you will need to choose a web host and sign up for an account so that everyone can connect to your site and see what you are offering.
Browsing the Web
Web browsers will enable people to navigate the Internet by simply clicking at pages, and there are a selection of browsers available free on the Internet allowing you to use their basic functions. If you want to make sure your website will work in future versions of web browsers, validate the code for your web pages. You want to make sure that the underlying code of your web page, which is known as HTML has no grammatical errors. HTML isn’t just a computer language, but a specification used by HTML developers as well as the writers of browsing software in order to make their programs as compatible as possible.
If you are an IT expert or graphic designer, web design for you will be a breeze, and when your website is live, you will be able to add pages yourself, update pictures, videos and text and manage the site yourself.
Many busy people don’t have time to look around on the web indefinitely, so when they do, you want to be sure the design of your website contributes to it being as productive as possible.
The Infinite Stairs to the Oubliette

This is one of the areas where the French kept Marie Antoinette in the conciergerie. There were many mysterious parts of these chambers, and this was one of the most interesting.
I one time designed a set of stairs like this back in the day with a Quake level editor. There was a website where you could upload your creations that could be shared by other level designers. I uploaded my stairs, but I don’t know if they were ever used or not. I thought I saw them in E1M4, but then I realized that those stairs were actually 5x better than mine.
