Launch the Site

To create your site, you design and code it on your own computer. To launch the site--that is, to "publish" it on the Internet--you transfer your files to a Web server, a computer that is connected to the Internet.

The process of launching a site varies. In some organizations, a particular person, such as the network administrator, oversees Web sites. You simply give your files to this person, who actually loads the files onto the Web server and launches the site. In other organizations, you might have the authority to add and delete files from the Web server.
