Frequently Asked Questions
I don't know how to code, can I still make a website?
Yes! This whole course for non-coders and complete beginners. You can make a website using this course, from start to finish, with help every step of the way.
Do I need to hire a designer or developer?
Nope. This course shows you how to do it all yourself, the easy way. The trick is, the design and coding is already done, all you have to do is switch it on.
How much does this course cost?
It's free! You don't even need to hand over your email or anything. This website is supported with affiliate links to businesses I feel do a very good job. These links work the regular way, and it costs you absolutely nothing, and it doesn't even track your personal information either. It's just a free way for me to continue updating this course to share with you. Learn more here.
There's lots of free information out there on making a website. What makes your course so special?
Good point! There are a lot of guides to making a website out there. When people ask me for resources to make their own website, I can't ever find one guide that answers all the questions. Some guides will tell you about hosting. Some about design. Others start off good, but then you need to pay to see the rest. And all of them use jargon without explaining it. I've taught people, young and old, how to make websites for 12 years, and I've come up with this guide based on my experience, to help everybody, even if they know nothing about websites.
Who are you?
I'm Andrew Morgan, nice to meet you! I live in California, and have been making and fixing websites for 12 years. I also teach coding to middle school kids. My wonderful wife and I live in a small studio with our two adorable cats. In my spare time I do gardening in my back parking lot, and yoga (with the cats, of course).
Websites Explained Simply
This website is a passion project of mine. I've seen so many people struggle to create a website on their own, because they don't have the right tools and know-how. I hope you find this website helpful, and it makes your dream of building a website a reality.
Please send me a message if you'd like. I would love to see the website you build using this course. Or, if you think anything is missing or out of date, please tell me that too :)
