    Stay clear of WYSIWYG editors (frontpage). They are terrible. Write your own stuff.

    Make site:
    First you're going to need to know some web programming language (I suggest XHTML). Go to w3schools.com and take their HTML tutorial followed by the XHTML tutorial. Then you'll need to get it hosted. The best host I've been able to find is AlteraHosting. They're very cheap for what the offer, and have fairly good support (they were nice enough to install phpBB for me). You'll also want a domain name. A good site for registering domains is GoDaddy.com.

    Your ISP may even offer some free webspace too. But, I would go to W3 Schools like undeadgnome suggested. They have good tutorials.

    The best thing to do is go through them and try some things, then, when your stuck as here. That's the best way to learn.

    Yeah, and their are also free hosts like Tripod and Anglefire, I forgot to mention that. Just make sure that if you use a free host, they have what you want. If you wrote your site in PHP, don't get it hosted on a server without PHP and some sort of SQL database.

    for a host my first host was my own IP provider then I went to use www.doteasy.com

    for $25USD you get a domain, 25MB, FTP 1000MB transfer - all for 1 year

    This is small but for your own personal project site its a good start.

    Check out those tutorials stated in the above posts, mess around with your skill on your own computer, and then when you got it down, look around for a free host. It is wise not to spend money if you are just starting out. :thumbs

    PS> I recommend AceHTML 4 Freeware as a good html editor.
