Web Design with Photoshop & GoDaddy

by western22 / January 28, 2009 11:38 PM PST

I have just recently started looking into how to design a website. I'm basically clueless. I'm considering using GoDaddy for the hosting, but I'm trying to figure out the design part. I currently have Photoshop 7.0. Does anyone know if I can use this to completely design my website and then use GoDaddy to get it up and running? Will I need some other program to transfer stuff from Photoshop to GoDaddy?? Thanks for your help!!

Photoshop is just for graphics
by Sovereign Forum moderator / January 29, 2009 10:38 AM PST

1. Domain and Web Hosting
Yes, you can get those @ GoDaddy.

2. Web Site Design
Yes, you can design your web site in Photoshop. It will be one giant graphic. You will have to either splice the images (the header, the footer, the background, the menu bar, the sidebar, etc) or save each one to its own file.

3. Web Site Development
This is where you take the graphics created in step 2 and embed them in the web site code. For this you will need another program. Notepad could do, but I recommend something like Notepad++ or Kompozer... or a combination of the two. If you don't know much about coding, look in to XHTML and CSS... and also check out and - both very good web sites that should get you started on that part.

You can always come back for more help later.

Btw, once you did step 3, you can use an FTP client (like Filezilla) to upload your graphics and HTML pages to GoDaddy. Notepad++ and Kompozer also have a simple FTP client built in, so you could later on update your web pages with those programs.

I really appreciate your response. That's exactly what I was wondering! Thanks for the explanation.
