    I will assume that you want to LEARN how to be able to build a website yourself. Not just use templates or websites that will do it for you, coz that never helps !

    You need to follow these steps:

    1) Learn HTML

    HTML is the basic language that any browser can understand. This is a MUST know.

    2) Learn CSS

    CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) makes your website looks cool and give you control over the page structure and appearance. (not mandatory to learn)

    3) Learn JavaScript

    JavaScript is important if you want your website to interact with your client. Also, it helps when your visitors are filling forms on your website and you want to check the data for validity. JavaScript has many uses and it is a MUST to learn.

    4)Server Side Scripting Language (SSS)

    You must choose a SSS in order for you build dynamic websites (search, saving users data, online store, online market .. etc). You can either choose ASP.NET, Java EE or PHP (last two are free to use)

    5) Database

    In order to store information that your users will send you. you will need to learn how to build a database system and interact with it (using SSS previously mentioned). You can learn SQL Server, Oracle or MySQL (MySQL is free and recommended for small sites)

    Once you have built your website. It is time to choose a domain name ( and then, you will have to buy a space (storage) online to host your site on. Usually, a hosting company will have both available for you! they will let you choose the name that you want and then let you choose hosting package.

    CAREFUL !!!!! depending on the SSS that you have chooses, the server that you will host your website on might either be Windows Server or Linux !! ASP.NET websites can only be hosted on Windows Server !

    First, decide on what your website will be about. Choose a niche market.

    Once you have done that, then do your keyword research. You want to determine what

    keywords are used most often when searching for related topics/subjects in your niche.

    Next you want to carefully choose a domain name. It can be with or without your primary keywords. I recommend that you include your primary keyword in your domain.

    Next decide on where your site will be hosted and sign up for hosting service.

    You are on a roll just need to pick a software program to make your web pages

    Something like Dreamweaver or Kompozer (free).

    Start working on your web pages.

    Keep in mind that if you want free services there are and

    Good luck.

    My friend has a business and he wanted a website for it. he went to the Montages, and consulted them. They asked his requirements, how the GUI should look, cost, etc. After 2 weeks they made an astonishing website for him. It was really great. They used HTML 5 and Flash with SilverLight.

    It depends on what kind of website you want but i suggest your use web builder tools like wordpress, drupal or joomla, they all have backend customizations and various templates/plugins/modules that will be very helpful for you as you develop and enhance your website.

    That has some tutorials on HTML. And eventually, you need FTP software.

    Do a Start - Run - notepad

    start going through the HTML tutorials. You save the file to somewhere for you to find it like the desktop. Open up your browser then open your .htm file. See how your coding works. Go back to notepad, change a change in the HTML coding, save changes, return to browser and hit F5 key to refresh. You should go through the HTML stuff first.
