Using our free templates is as easy as 1-2-3. Once you've found the template you want:

- Customize the template to your own needs
- Publish your customized template to the world!
Below is an explanation of each of these steps.
Downloading Your Template
Your template will download in .zip format. Assuming your computer recognizes this format, you can open the .zip file in the same way you would open any other file on your computer. On most computers, you can do this simply by double-clicking on the .zip file. You can place the file anywhere that is convenient on your computer. If you have your own web server, you should place the file inside of your home directory.
Customizing Your Template
To customize your template, you will need to have a basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and web graphics. HTML stands for "HyperText Markup Language" and is the basic language that all websites use to display their contents. CSS stands for "Cascading Style Sheets" and modifies the way the HTML elements are displayed on the website. Web graphics are simply any images that appear on your website.
Publishing Your Template
To publish your template, you will need to have a web hosting account (or your own live web server). To publish to your hosting account, you can use FTP to transfer the files from your computer to the web server located with your hosting provider.
If you don't have a web hosting account, check out ZappyHost.
