Hey all

I'm making a Homepage for the agency of my Stepmom in the holidays. However, I'm not really good at that :D
So anyway, I wanted to know a few things before I start, obviously I've already looked at some pages on the net but ya never know...

How much does a domain name cost? I want to call it www.agentur-einzigartig.at...
What else do I need? I want to set up a shop, galery and a small forum on it, with music tracks and stuff...
It's an ART-agency, thats why, music and pics and such...

Anyway, if anyone could help me out, I'd be grateful.

Infy

Registering a domain name is cheap...

Here's where to start: http://www.networksolutions.com/domain-name-registration/index.jsp
Just type in the name you want and click continue, and continue, and continue as they will offer everything under the sun.
Choose how many years you want...
They say it costs about $35.00 USD but this seems high to me. There are probably other places to get a domain name registered cheaper... I was thinking more like $10.

Once you have the domain name registered you need a server to host your website, then get the two connected. Once connected (by telling the host your domain name) the host will give you the FTP information so you can upload your web pages to the server. Be sure to save all the settings in your FTP program. I would get the host to recommend an FTP program. I use FileZilla for HackHunters.

Ask if you get stuck, but the best answers will come from your host... keep their phone number handy.

1st of all, you certainly need to learn HTML.

Free course:

When you want moving pics etc, you might wanna learn flash as well.

Hope this helps. HTML is one of the most important parts of building a website completely on your own.

<?php
function whattolearn() {

echo "Buy/Download a good HTML WYSIWYG editor, and start messing around. \n
soon you will see how it all works. Things you should learn is how to create a website with DIVS and try to avoid TABLE STRUCTURES at ALL costs!
Use CSS to make the design/layout (when the css file isnt included,
the whole page SHOULD look compeetly empty apart from the div structure and the text.
Another handy thing is PHP as it enables you to do some stuff that your not able to do normally.";
}
?>

<div class="container">
<div class="header"></div>
<div class="menu"></div>
<div class="content"><?php echo whattolearn(); ?> </div>
<div class="footer"></div>



So learn (X)HTML & CSS and when you have the hang of that, then start with some BASIC php.

Also: download the following tool for Firefox called: Firebug, that helps alot! Next to that, take a look at websites and after that take a look at there source code. It shows you how it should be made (atleast if you got a good website)

When it comes to learning xhtml, php, css flash, photoshop and all the other stuff of websites, it&#39;s best to find good tutorials. What helped me get through everything here at HackHunters was TutVid: http://www.youtube.com/user/tutvid

TutVid gives step by step instructions which makes learning all this stuff much more manageable, especially if you&#39;re unfamiliar with it.
