We want to make the process of building and updating a professional-looking web site as easy as possible, so we've created a suite of site building tools aimed at all users, from web novices to HTML experts. We designed all of our tools with beginners in mind, so if you're new to the Web, you suggest you get started with a Yahoo! site building tool such as Yahoo! SiteSolution.
With Yahoo! Web Hosting, you can choose the tool that's right for you. If you're an experienced user more comfortable working with your own site building software, Adobe Dreamweaver, or you need the advanced features available in other software, go ahead and build your site offline, with your own tools. You can even create an entire site by hand offline using your own HTML or text editor (or online with our editors), or use our advanced scripting tools or your own editor to create your site with PHP, Perl, and MySQL.
To use a third-party site building tool with your plan, you'll simply need to copy the web pages and files you develop with your own software to your Web Hosting account. You'll set up your software to connect with our servers, then use FTP to upload your files to your Web Hosting account. Learn more about FTP.
