In short, you need a place to host the site and a domain name.

Here is a good beginner's guide: http://www.thesitewizard.com/gettingstarted/startwebsite.shtml

If you have specific questions, I will do my best to answer them. :)

@Ninja that link is a great resource. I bookmarked it.

@Kman12 - read Ninja's link --> http://www.thesitewizard.com/gettingstarted/startwebsite.shtml

It breaks it down as rudimentry as possible, I might add that a template site, might also be a good resource for you. There are lots of free templates out there, and I have paid for http://dreamtemplate.com in the past, they have lots of designs.

All that being said becoming a web designer in your spare time doesn't come quick. After 7 years of playing around, I still learn something new everytime I turn around.

I bet you $5 this is a question that gets asked alot... (I asked it myself a while ago)

Anyways if you are ready to make your first website just now it is not going to be perfect..(You always improve your skills)

But if you are serious I would also learn the NUTS & BOLTS here: http://www.w3schools.com

Learn about .html and .css

Then you have a basic Idea of how a page is structured and what syntax to use...

After that start developing basic templates or download free templates and start editing them...

Good Luck :busy:

There is a free website author called "kompozer" which I have used to make 2 websites an it might not have all the bells and whistles but it is free and works really well if u don't know a lot about coding because u don't really need to know to use this program

If you are NOT interested in coding (like learning HTML or CSS), then go for CMS (content management software) like Wordpress, Joomla etc.
Contact your webhosting provider and they would setup things like Wordpress for you.

This site (BleepingComputer) runs on CMS (IP Board) too :-)
