You can build a website on your computer with no internet connection. It won’t be public until you put the files onto a hosting account. But local development is the fastest and easiest way to build and learn.


  • Create a folder.
  • Open a text editor and create two files, one for HTML (index.html) and one for CSS (style.css).
  • Add these files to your new folder.
  • Add base HTML and base CSS to these files and save them.
  • With your browser, open the index.html file or simply drag the file into a browser window, and your website should load.
