Web designing, any ebooks/advice/tips etc?

I need to create a website ending in .co.uk and I don't want it to be a shared/multi domain. I would like to create my own from scratch. Any e-books or websites online that will help me understand it more or give me step by step? I know nothing about web design etc. I understand that I need to get a Host... show more I need to create a website ending in .co.uk and I don't want it to be a shared/multi domain.

I understand that I need to get a Host for it. Aany advice on who would be good. Can I do this with a one off payment rather than paying monthly/yearly?

Thank you in advanced xxx
