This FAQ will help you to use the HTML validator

A quick and easy way to check your code directly from your hosting control panel


Hypertext Markup Language, or HTML, is the language of the internet. HTML, along with CSS, controls what your website is, and how it looks. These days, with growing computer literacy, its more and more common for people to write their own websites. If you've chosen to do this, the HTML validator will check your content to make sure there are no errors, ensuring that your site displays exactly how you want it to. 

To check and validate the HTML code on your website, please do the following:

1

Login to your 123 Reg control panel.

2

Scroll down to the web hosting section.

Select the relevant domain name from the drop down box and click on the Manage button.
