You can have your website displayed in whatever type of device you choose, but it really shows that you have learned something about yourself by putting it online. The only thing you need is the content of your website and a host or service that is capable of handling the load and keep it up to date.
The way to do this is to use an HTML address, like for the content and for the host.
You can use an address as a stand-in for any type of text, like your name or address if you’re in a business, or a URL like for a page on your website.
Using a website address as a stand-in for your name or address is one of the most common ways you can make your website address look more professional. Using the URL as a stand-in for your name or address means that anyone can see a website address, and because you can always change it if you want to, you make your website address seem more genuine.
When you use an address like your name, you have to type the entire address out. So if you are trying to have your name displayed as you type it, you’ll need to type out all the letters. But if you are trying to have your address displayed as you type it, you can use the address as a stand-in for your name or address.
This is one of those things that you might not think of when you type your website address, but when you go to an Internet cafe, you might see that they display your website address as a “address bar” above your computer screen. When you type ‘www’ in that bar, you are actually typing out your website address.
This is a great way to make your address easier to type without having to look at your screen. It’s easy and fun, and it means your address is a bit easier to remember.
In most cases where we see a web address in the address bar, the address is not actually correct. This is because the word “www” is a bit different for each browser so you must type in the full address, even if you don’t know it. Fortunately, there is a way to fix this, which I will discuss later in this chapter.
With this new tool, we can now easily make our web addresses more consistent. You can now type in the exact URL for your website, so that it is a bit easier to remember. You can also use this to test out your url’s in the address bar, so that you can see if they are working for you. I’ve written this guide without using the new address bar, so I can show you how to use it in the next section.
