Originally, creating a website was a task for experts only. There wasn't any web editing software in existence, as we know it today. In those days you had to learn to code the website language, HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) "by hand" in a simple text editor in order to make your website
Technical factors such as a limited distribution of personal computers, expensive internet connections and insufficient infrastructure for years prevented personal homepages from being so widely popular as they are today.
Web editor with graphical user interface
The emergence of the so-called WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) web editors made it a lot easier to realise the dream of having your own homepage.
For a number of years, Microsoft Frontpage (1995) was the leading web editor for personal web sites, but soon it was accompanied by others such as Adobe Dreamweaver (1997) and a wide range of freeware programs.
A handful of these web editors and many more exist in up-to-date versions today. Generally speaking, all web editing software on the market can be used on a web space with One.com.
Web Editor - an online application
A web editor does no longer need to be a software package you buy at a shop to take with you and install on your personal computer.
As it is the case for other kinds of software, web editors have moved online so they don't need to be installed, but are purely web based. They are placed online and can be used from all computers with access to the Internet. It also means that the individual user no longer needs to worry about updates to the web editor. It is automated and takes place on the server.
Web Editor from One.com is a web-based program for homepage editing and it really has many advantages. With your web space at One.com you get free access to a range of website templates that can be used as basis for a unique website with menus and lots of sub pages of your own choice.
With Web Editor you can for example insert images, slide shows and movie clips from e.g. YouTube or One.com's Gallery on your own domain. Web Editor gives you free rein to create exactly the result you want. Our support is ready to help you if you have any questions regarding the web editor.
HTML, XHTML and CSS
Even though web editors have made it possible to create homepages without knowledge of HTML, some basic concepts are still useful to know a little bit about. A website still consists basically of a text file with HTML code. A browser (for example Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) reads and interprets the code which then appears as text and images and so on to the user who visits the website.
HTML and XHTML (Extensible HTML) are two web standards for structuring information on a website. CSS is an abbreviation for Cascading Style Sheets and is a wide spread method to manage the website's layout and design.
