Basic HTML Structure of Web Pages

In this tutorial I will show you the basic HTML structure of a website.

HTML (Hyper Text Maukup Language) is a language used by web designers to structure a web pages. The language is then read by your browser and displayed according to your HTML specifications.

CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) is used to style your HTML pages. For more information on how to use stylesheet see How to Style Webpages Using CSS.

Learning to create your own websites using HTML and CSS gives you the ability to have complete control over how your website will look. Even if you don't want to learn how to create your own website and prefer instead to use website builders, it is still a good idea to at least know the basics.

Basic Structure of an HTML Document



<title> </title>





You always start your HTML document with the opening <html> tag, and close your document with the closing </html> tag.

Within the html tags you place your head, title, and body tags. Make sure to place your <title> </title> tags within your head tags. The opening <body> tag is placed immediately after the head tag and the closing </body> tag goes immediately before the closing </html> tag.

Besides the <title> </title> tags there are many other tags and scripts (code) that can go inside the head tags. Some examples of what may be placed inside the head tags are listed below:

Meta tags
Google Analytics code
The link to your external CSS document
Internal CSS.
