I know only the basics about computers, but Im interested in creating a website, or at least trying to. Is there a book I can buy that will walk me through it? Also, is there any preliminary knowledge I need before tackling the actual construction of the site?
Thanks.

Hi crashcassady, and welcome to TSG.. :)

If you go to Google and type in free web host you will get 135,000 or so hits. Click on any of them (some will obviously be better than others, so have a look round) and you will be building your site in minutes. You will also get lots of handy hints and tips.

It may not be exactly how you would like it to start with, but you can practice your web building skills to your hearts content.

There's nothing to stop you from building a site using more than one of the hosts, and you will get a feel for different aspects of web creation.

This link here takes you to a site designed for teaching kids how to build a web page, and I've just had a look through it and it's excellent. It's ideal for beginners, with everything in plain english.

Hope that helps,

Cheers

One great website to learn from is HTML Goodies (www.htmlgoodies.com). It teaches everything in a simple manner, and also sells it's own books on the subject. Webmonkey (www.webmonkey.com) is also a very good resource once you get into it further.

Needless to say, I reccommend learning HTML for your webpages instead of relying on Microsoft Frontpage or Macromedia Dreamweaver to do it all for you. It does take a little time, but it's worth it. Promise :)

If you have any queries about HTML or anything about web-design/develoment, feel free to post again, and myself and the other guys and gals here will be willing to help.

Have fun :D

And when you are ready, I've found a great html editor called WebDrwaf that is powerful, easy to use {wysiwyg format}, and free.
