Website building program or a website for building websites?

I am home schooled and my parents thought building websites would be a good class. Does anybody know of a program for building websites? or a website for making websites? and most importantly a free one? A website for making websites is more preferred.

    The very best and very helpful website builder is the package of Site Build It !

    The daughter of the owner made a site with it when she was 13 years old and earns thousands of dollars with it now.

    This package will take you by the hand to start from scratch building a successful web-business and it has a very big forum with all the help and tips you can think of.

    This costs 300 dollars a year, but it is very easy to earn that back in a couple of months.

    But building a website costs lots of time and effort.

    It's great and it works ! I can tell you, because I use it too!

    Check it out here:

    Good Luck !

    The industry standard for web design programs is Adobe's Dreamweaver. If you visit Adobe's site, you (or your parents) can download a 30-day free trial of the program. That's more than enough time to build a simple site. There are other free programs out there for doing sites, but the end results look like dog poo. Pretty hack. Awful. Yes, there are websites for making sites, but you're restricted to using their templates (usually) and won't learn anything about actual web building. Head to the library and check out HTML for Dummies, Websites for Dummies, and Dreamweaver for Dummies. Those three books will be enough to explain the terminology and basic functions. When you've got a feel for what you want, lay out your website on paper. Start collecting graphics and content. Once you've got all of that rounded up, download Dreamweaver, Flash, and Photoshop. You'll have 30 days to make the site of your life. Ain't homeschooling great!?

    yeah it's called notpad -_-'

    also building websites isn't as straight forward as you might think, but why are you enquiring about this if your gonna have a class on it? Also a website that makes other websites (uses premade templates) why would you wanna use this? It will not teach you how to code, or how to debug so what's the point of it?

    http://www.w3schools.com/

    this website is the best place to start. It will teach you HTML XHTML PHP and even server maintainability I believe. Essentially anything website related it will teach you. Start at HTML and move on to whatever you like more.

    To start off learning don't use anything else but notepad and w3schools.com

    May as well learn to do it right instead of shortcuts.

    www.w3schools.com

    start with HTML. All you need is a text editor(like notepad) and a browser(like Internet explorer,fire fox etc.)
