Ok...maybe in a little over my head or on the wrong forum, but if you can not help me, maybe you can direct me elsewhere. (I was looking for site building, but I now see you guys are into software building?)

Anyway...I have a website on Geocities...wasn't satisfied with using their tools, so I started learning some HTML, and CSS stuff to build my own site from scratch using Windows notepad to hard-code everything in, so that I can fix and maintain my site better. I find the new site easierto open, even with frames, and user friendly when clicking through links.

I want to buy a host package, but I read where many use Unix servers, instead of windows based. Does this mean that I can't Upload my site that I have built myself with a windows system? I have kept the site code fairly basic with navigation bars, frames, and style sheets and this works fine with my IE Browser on a Windows NT and Windows 98 system.

Do I look for a Hosts that uses Windows based server or use another package to build a site that will work on Unix...I'm totally lost as to what the difference is?....Sorry if I'm too far off topic.

Help with confusion

First off, you are correct in that this is not the best place to ask such a question. That being said, a simple HTML file should work whether the server is Unix or Windows. Problems arise when you use OS specific extensions, etc.

I suggest you try a Google search like "HTML tutorial" - that gave me lots of good sites to check out.

Good luck to you.
