Edit a HTML Website Template

Editing your Website Content

Once you have selected and downloaded your template to a folder on your computer you will need to edit the content. You will be replacing the example text and images with your own. You will need to understand a little HTML to do this. But with the right text editor and some patience it will be easy to do. I have found the hardest part is to write good content for a website. You need original content (don’t copy from another site). Your content should be focused on your services or products. Select two or three key words or phrases. Right them down and use them naturally in the context of your web pages. Don’t stuff them in or over use them.

This article will focus on replacing the “filler” content that came with a website template with your own content.

Selecting your HTML Template

Creating a website from scratch takes creative skill and knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Paying a web design firm to do this for you can cost thousands of dollars. But you can do it yourself without learning CSS or JavaScript. You just need some very basic understanding of HTML. Simply purchase a professionally built template that already has the design and all the code done for you. You then replace the images and text with your own to customize the website for your needs.

This post will guide you through the steps in selecting an HTML template that you can use for your small business website.

Amazon S3 Website Hosting for Small Business

What is a Static Website?

This simply means the website does not depend on any special scripts or databases running on the server in order to render your website pages out to the Internet. Many websites require a database to manage the content. These databases also require a script running on the server to allow the web page to dynamically render a web page to load in the browser each time the page is requested by a user. This requires additional processing power and extra security to handle. Static web pages can still have great functionality using third party services instead. That is how the comments section of this website work. This website is static and is hosted at Amazon S3.

This article will step you through the process of setting up static website hosting at Amazon Web Serves (AWS) using Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3).
