This basic HTML template code for free does NOT require any download or sign up. No funny business here. Just copy and paste the code to get started on your next web development project. This code meets all current HTML5 standards

I highly recommend making a small edit to the code so that your name is reflected in the meta tag as the author. Then, save the following code as it’s own separate HTML file so you can call on it whenever you need it. There’s no reason you should be wasting your time typing up the basic structure every single time you start creating a new page.

HTML5 Starter Document

<!doctype html>

<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="utf-8">

  <title>Basic HTML Template Code for Free</title>
  <meta name="description" content="This is a starter HTML5 template.">
  <meta name="author" content="">

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">


  <script src="javascript.js"></script>
