Can anybody offer any tips on getting started creating a website?

Question by Jason D: Can anybody offer any tips on getting started creating a website?
I think I have a really good intent for a new website. I am using dreamweaver cs4 to create it. I have a basic concept of how I want it to function. I figure I can work on the specific details once I get started with the website. The problem is, when I open dreamweaver, I see a white screen and don’t have any intent as to where to start. Could somebody offer any tips? This is going to be a dynamic website if that makes any difference.

Best answer:

Answer by Dylan :
Depending on what you need to do, you might have to learn some programming languages. If you plan on having members or storing information in databases, you will need more than just Dreamweaver. Look up PHP and SQL, two of today’s most used languages.

Good luck!

    Well it all depends on how much coding you’re already familiar with. When I first started with Dreamweaver I only knew basic coding, which was enough to get by with.
    You could start by Googling some dreamweaver tutorials, I’m sure there must be plenty. You could try:
    http://www.entheosweb.com/dreamweaver/default.asp
    I’m not sure what you’ve already decided on, but an Iframe is a good place to start, as it can look professional and it fairly easy to code.
    Here’s a tutorial:
    http://www.vejc-design.com/tutorials/html/iframe.php
    Or if you feel up to it (I don’t mean this to sound patronizing by the way, I just don’t know how familiar you are with coding) you could use PHP, this makes it easier to change the design of your website. Again, you’d need to find some PHP tutorials, but there are plenty (I had a bit of trouble converting to PHP).
    Of course you could always just start with WordPress. I found it a bit confusing to install at first, but it makes life a hell of a lot easier. You can find out more about it, and download it from here:
    http://wordpress.org/

    I’m sorry this is very vague, but I hoped it helped.

  3. As you may know a domain name is just a name, not a real website. If you are going to create your website: 1- Buy a domain name. A domain name is a name you want to call your website. To get a domain name, you have to pay an annual fee to a registrar for the right to use that name. 2- Buy a web hosting service to provide your online space and enable you to get your website online at your purchased domain name.

    If you want to start your website I recommend purchase your domain and hosting together. In this way it is possible to get your domain for free. Some hosting services offer this gift today.

    As an experienced webmaster I recommend BlueHost service which I’m sure it would work for you and fulfill all your requirements. They have a really great offer for hosting & I have used them for over 3 yrs now, and have never had a single problem with them.
