    It depends on your definition of expensive, but generally, making a website isn't cheap. Even if you do want to pay somebody to make you a website, you need to have an understanding of how a website is made, what a CMS is, what happens on the server-side and what on the client-side.

    I would say start with using a nice CMS like Joomla. Your web space provider most propably has a CMS pre-installed. Start with googling these terms, see if you can learn any of the following:

    HTML

    php

    server - client

    CMS

    SQL

    CSS

    Do *NOT* ask someone to make you a website "just like facebook/IGN/yahoo/msn, just better". First get an understanding of what is possible and what's not, what is easy and what is diffucult.

    Also, do *NOT* pay someone to make you a personal website because they say it'll be awesome. They will most propably use a free CMS and create your website in a day or so. This happens more often that you think.

    Edit:

    Also, do not trust anyone who promises to make you a website here, even if they do have a company that makes websites, there are thousands of them out there, some must be better/cheaper.

    If you decide to create your own website – a template based service might be a good one for you. MS Office Live Small Business gives you a free website, hosting and 500 MB of storage. You can redirect/forward your existing domain.

    So, what made you buy a domain before you knew what to do with it, I'm wondering. It seems to me that one ought to do a little research before spending money on something.

    I wish you all the best luck, but without a website, your domain is just sitting there and costing you money every month.

    Now that you are equipped with the domain name, you can take hosting services to get storage and hosting for your your website. Make sure that you have the web pages ready...

    Your best bet is to just drop your hosting and use http://easydch.com/sitebuilder because it includes hosting and you get a professional looking website. But most importantly you can update it your self, you do not need to pay the designer every time you need a little change.
