Create A Responsive Custom Website using HTML and CSS

In today’s digital landscape, a well-designed and user-friendly website is essential for establishing an online presence. So, as a beginner web developer, it’s important to learn how to create responsive custom websites using HTML and CSS.

In this blog post, we’ll guide you through building your responsive custom website using HTML and CSS. Our example website will focus on camping gear and highlight sellers of essential equipment. You can also choose a different theme and customize it to your liking.

The website consists of key sections: Home, Services, Portfolio, About Us, Contact Us and Footer. Each section is fully responsive, adapting seamlessly to different screen sizes. On smaller devices, a hamburger menu provides convenient toggling of the menu visibility.

The Home section serves as the landing page with a navigation bar, captivating background image, descriptive text, and a call-to-action button. Services are showcased in visually appealing cards, while the Portfolio section displays accomplished projects through captivating image cards.

The About Us section shares the website’s story, mission, vision, and team details. Contact Us provides contact information and a user-friendly form for email, phone number, and messages. The footer section includes a copyright message and additional navigation links.

Steps For Creating Custom Website in HTML and CSS

To create a responsive custom website using HTML and CSS, follow the given steps line by line:

  1. Create a folder. You can name this folder whatever you want, and inside this folder, create the mentioned files.
  2. Create an index.html file. The file name must be index and its extension .html
  3. Create a style.css file. The file name must be style and its extension .css
  4. Download and place the images folder in your project directory for the custom website. You can also use your own images if desired.

To start, add the following HTML codes to your index.html file: These codes include all the necessary CDN links, website layout, and different sections. Here you can change the website details according to your theme.
