Default Web Site Design

Hello Everyone

I am wondering about creating a website. How hard is it to do? I assume there are webtools, etc? I have just basic computer knowledge, and I am wondering if I should even attempt it. I know I have to buy a domain name, etc. but, thats about as much as I know about it.

TIA

Wagon,

The absolute simplest way is to use Yahoo. You don't have to buy a domain; to get started, just use their free service and online web design tools.

Then, if you decide you want to stick with it, you can buy a domain and hosting through Yahoo, GoDaddy, or another company.

GoDaddy is cheap but not very user friendly.

Once you get something up and running and really want to customize it, I'd recommend either getting a used copy of Dreamweaver off eBay if you're really looking to do serious web work, or just an old copy of Microsoft Frontpage. Frontpage is VERY easy to use. Dreamweaver is more full featured.

Of course, really hardcore web designers just use a text editor.

But Yahoo is the easiest way to get out there while you're learning what you're doing.

Good idea, Casual, I will look into that stuff. I have discovered that Google has a "page creator" which i have been piddling with, kind of a good place to start as to what im thinking the way i want it to look, etc. I assume the Yahoo thing is something similar.

Thx again for all the helpful replies.

Well, I emailed my pastor and suggested we needed a website, so I know what that means....so... I started this topic.

Per Casual's suggestion, I have been fooling around with Google Page Creator to get the layout, etc. Although I havent been asked to do anything..yet.

It really should be pretty simple, just some pics,calendars, shedules, etc.
