Hi lyubomyr,

Do what works for you. Yes, a localhost is usually the way to go when creating a website. Use the python script or Node if you prefer JavaScript. There are even apps and browser extensions available that can manage this for you (Web Server for Chrome, Prepros, Anvil for Mac). They are essentially wrappers around things you can do yourself in the Terminal. As you become more proficient youโ€™ll probably adapt to more efficient ways of managing your local servers with a node packages manager, vagrant or docker.
