You need a host for your files/content in addition to a DNS (domain name server host thingy). Then it all depends if you actually make the content yourself or pay for premade stuff that you edit yourself.

Macromedia Dreamweaver is pretty easy to use if you can get your hands on a copy. I also got some really good advice from Budha(I think it was Budha anyway.)

If you think Wordpress was hard to set up, most full CMS's are going to be damn near impossible.

basics:
-domain name
-hosting
-website creation program (dreamweaver/frontpage etc)

Buy the domain name and get your hosting sorted out. Your hosting source will provide you with a username/pass which you can use to access your server (shared hosting is cheap). You access the server via an FTP program, some use smartftp and there are others out there too.

You utilize your website program to build your site, and then upload it to the server. I almost forgot, you have to point your domain name to that particular server as well, so when people type in your site name it points to your site.

Sorry, I've done all of this quite a few times but writing it all out isn't my forte....

Getting domain name is cheap. $9.99 a year. But Yahoo has a package that you get a domain name and Get a web site + email + domain name.
Web Hosting Starter
Free domain name
Your own professional web site
Easy site building tools and designs
24-7 toll-free customer support
Learn more...
$11.95/mo.
$25 setup fee

Is this a good package you fellas think? Because I know a few things about the computer but not alot. The things you's mentioned like Joomla sees complicated to the untrained.

Help would be appreciated... Thanks

i use to use notepad to start out making webpages...start there and it makes using those apps much easier in the end once you understand the basics of coding. Adobe golive is my personal favorite application for making webpages.

I just went the basics. Bluehost.com has awesome deals on webspace & registration, so you'll never run out of room. Then used Joomla template for the starting site. Now we're going a bit further, I've got a friend that will customise the code to make it more streamlined, and do exactly what I want it to do, rather than be restricted by the original templates.

All up I've probably only spent 40 hours on the site to date.

Must admit I moved away a lot from frontpage etc, as I didn't quite know what I was doing, but once I get this PhD out the way in the next couple of months, I'll probably look into it further.

Wordpress is pretty simple to setup with most hosting providers, because the SQL database is already there. You just copy it to a folder on the server and click on install.php
I have my own domain that hosts my family website, some forums, and webmail.
I also run my own server in the basement that runs Wordpress for blogging, Webguide so I can watch TV from my media center while on the road, and software to let me get at my files on the road.

For basics, get your domain name, then get a hosting company. I use inmotionhosting.com and it's less then $10 a month, I get like 30 gigs of space.
