Want to make a website from scratch

I want to make a website from scratch…it’s more about the coding learning experience then having anything important to promote…would Linode work for this?

start with learning html. sololearn.com was the best a few years ago, though there may be better resources now

Good advice, didn’t know that. In Germany, we really like to use SelfHTML.org – a very good site since the beginning of HTML. But, only in German.

For hosting it? I’m sure Linode would be sufficient.

I would suggest a static site builder like hugo

If the website is only static files you can also host it on GitHub pages or gitlab pages etc.

For the really early start, while learning Coding you could also just have it on your own machine and dont need a Server yet.

What kind of website? Static or application? Let’s start with tooling. For static site builders there’s all sorts of stuff like Nextjs, Hugo, and Wordpress. For web applications the task gets more complex and is going to depend on personal preference and what kind of architecture you want.

Linode is a good solution for hosting a web application, but unnecessary for a static website. For a static website you can use something like github pages or netlify for free.

If you don’t know how to code you’ll need to do that before you touch any of this.

What do you want to make? A static site or a web app? If you just want to make a static website I’d highly recommend using a site builder like Jeckyl or Hugo.
