Is there any software that enables me to build a webpage(html will work) and host it from my own machine?

i would like to know if there is any software out there that will enable me to build a basic web page(if i have to use html then it will work) and then save the file as an .html file and then host the file as a web page on my own p.c.?

I will have my own domain name so that is not an issue.

i would prefer the software to be windows based but linux will work.

    Some web hosts offer such a program for free.

    As you may know a domain name is just a name, not a real website. If you are going to create your website: 1- Buy a domain name. A domain name is a name you want to call your website (ex: To get a domain name, you have to pay an annual fee to a registrar for the right to use that name. 2- Buy a web hosting service to provide your online space and enable you to get your website online at your purchased domain name.

    As an experienced webmaster I recommend BH web hosting which I’m sure it would work for you and fulfill all your requirements. They have a really great offer for hosting & I have used them for over 3 yrs now, and have never had a single problem with them.

This is another easy way to get your website online.
