Other Ways To Create an HTML Website

While Website Raven offers a streamlined and efficient way to build your HTML website, there are other traditional methods available for web development. These methods, each with their unique strengths, cater to different skill levels and technical requirements. From the direct, hands-on control of FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to the sophisticated capabilities of SSH (Secure Shell) for secure file management, these alternatives provide a range of options for web developers. For those who prefer a more code-centric approach, tools like Visual Studio Code offer an integrated development environment with extensive support for HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Additionally, platforms like GitHub Pages present an excellent opportunity for developers looking to leverage version control and collaborative features in their web development process. Let's explore some of these alternatives:

How FTP Works

FTP (File Transfer Protocol)

FTP is a standard network protocol used for transferring files between a client and server. It allows you to manually upload files to your web server, offering direct control over your website's file structure. You have to use an FTP client like Filezilla or WinSCP in order to upload files.

SSH (Secure Shell)

SSH provides a secure channel over an unsecured network, enabling advanced users to perform secure file transfers and manage their website’s files and directories directly on the server. If you're on a Mac you can simply use the Terminal, but on Windows you need to download an SSH client like Kitty.

VS Code (Visual Studio Code)

A popular code editor, Visual Studio Code, offers extensive features for website development, including support for HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and various extensions and integrations. With many traditional webhosts, you can edit using VS Code as your IDE, and then upload your HTML files to your website.

GitHub Pages

GitHub Pages allows you to turn GitHub repositories into live websites. It's a great option for hosting static HTML websites and integrating version control into your web development workflow.

Technical Complexities of HTML Website Building

FTP: Navigating Connection Hurdles

FTP, a long-standing method for file transfers, often presents initial hurdles like setting up the right connection parameters. Common issues include:

  • Incorrect login credentials leading to access denials.
  • Mistyped hostnames or wrong port numbers causing connection failures.
  • Challenges in ensuring files are uploaded to the precise server directory, impacting website functionality.

SSH: The Layer of Security Complexity

SSH, known for its secure connection, brings a layer of complexity that requires technical know-how:

  • Managing cryptographic keys and understanding secure shell commands for a stable connection.
  • Navigating server file permissions and ownership, a task daunting for those unfamiliar with server administration.
  • Transferring files to the correct directory, where errors can lead to significant website issues.

Traditional CMS: A Maze of Directories

Content Management Systems like WordPress involve intricate directory structures, making HTML customization complex:

  • Navigating to 'wp-content' and 'themes' to locate HTML files for customization.
  • Understanding the platform's architecture, which is time-consuming and requires specific platform knowledge.
  • Dealing with the risk of breaking the site if files are modified incorrectly.

In contrast, Website Raven’s direct HTML editing approach simplifies these processes, offering a seamless, intuitive, and immediate web development experience, accessible to users of all skill levels.

Direct Editing of JavaScript and CSS Files

At Website Raven, we understand that modern web design goes beyond HTML. That's why our site builder extends its direct editing capabilities to JavaScript (.js) and CSS (.css) files. This feature empowers you to take full creative control over every aspect of your website's appearance and functionality.

Our default template includes a link to a custom.css file, allowing you to tailor the look and feel of your site with ease. Whether it's adjusting the layout, changing fonts, or modifying color schemes, you can do it all directly within the in-page IDE. Additionally, editing your site's layout to incorporate the latest JavaScript libraries is a breeze. Enhance your website with cutting-edge features and animations using popular libraries like:

  • Three.js: Bring 3D animations to life, creating immersive and interactive web experiences.
  • GSAP (GreenSock Animation Platform): Animate any web element with high-performance, professional-grade animations.
  • ScrollMagic: Effortlessly create scroll-based animations and add dynamic effects to your web pages.

With these tools at your disposal, your website will not only look modern but also stand out with its ultra-modern functionalities. Website Raven's builder makes it simple to implement these advanced features, ensuring your site is always at the forefront of the latest web design trends.
