It has some of my animations and tutorials on it. Email me the link to your animations or tutorials on Youtube if you want your animations or tutorials on my website. My email address is theretrozombie@ymail.com

i know you've got a host right now but i can recommend you this one, brilliant host never had a single issue with them and they are pretty professional in comparison. 110MB Web Hosting which is totally free http://www.110mb.com/aff.php?un=weowntheskies, the bit on the end is just my refferal link. Anyway, i'm not sure of what your on now but the free 110MB account gives you 110mb storage and 100gb of bandwidth!!! thats a hell of a lot. Also it supports use of html, xhtml, javascript, flash, PHP, MYSQL and XML etc.

If you not a great website maker or have limited knowlegde then i guess you can use there website templates but i'd stick to making it yourself. The layout on the site is just like a folder structure. First of all you'll need to create your homepage and you'll need to call it index.htm or index.html. You can then edit this and start making your homepage either on the hosting pages editing tools or if you got a piece of software use that. Once you have your homepage just keep adding pages from there. For example i see you've split the page into an intro, animations and then tutorials. you could create seperate pages for each of these which would make the website appear clearer, easier to navigate and load faster.

As for website layout there are a few ways to do it. Like your page there is no layout its just a long page which progresses down with information and videos. Now if you want a simple layout you can use tables to set out everything. For example you could create a sidebar, header, main content section and footer etc etc....

If you understand more about html you could try using CSS and creating webpage layout through that which would be consistant for every page. I did this on my website and set up certain perimeters for the header, footer, sidebar and main content section so they would be the same on each page.

If you want some help with making your website or want me to set you up a layout to use i'll be happy to help you out. Or even if you just want to learn some basics on html i can help you out with that as well! i'd reccomend 110mb for the hosting, i was on the free account but upgrade to premium so i got 15Gb of storage, 1Tb of bandwidth!!! Absolutly crazy and i'll probably never use it but hey! Also i did it for the FTP linkup from my website host to my computer so i can upload files directly... but i'll stop blabbering on now and chill  :P

... I might just make a tutorial now...  ???

EDIT: just found this, might be of some further use into the insight of the host http://www.110mb.com/preview.php see what you think?

I tried to view your site but it doesn't show up on internet explorer. You might want to take a look at that. The categories that you were talking about can be made using the <a herf> tag to make a link to a different page.

ok so i've set up your entire website now, i've even made all of the pages you wanted. what i've done is set links to the different html files for each page but for the links to work all of the html files must be uploaded to your webhost in the same directory. Now the question i need to ask you now is, will your webhost allow you to upload entire webpages into a directory.

oh, siragin. You mean <ahref>? So that means I'll have to make separate websites? Cause AHREF is when you want to make a link to somewhere else.

no just different html files are needed for each page.  If you use 110mb, you just upload the files to the file manager. As long as all of the pages are in the same directory if you use 110mb, then they will link, for example i have uploaded all of my pages on the files manger all in no directory/folder. Because of this, if say i was on my Index page (homepage file) and wanted to go to Animations Gallery html file (animations gallery page) i would just put this link in<a href="Animations Gallery.html" target="_self">. and it would work because it is simply being told to stay in the directory that the index is situated in but search for that specified file and open it.

Hopefully this is making some sense otherwise i'll have to tutorialise it and include some pictures.
