    www.w3schools.com/html/

    If you want a good resource for the basics, the site above is quite good.

    If you just want a website, there are plenty of make-your-own sites on the internet.

    I personally hate making web sites and programming.

    Learn CSS and HTML and write it up using Notepad, Notepad++, Dreamweaver, etc.

    I'm a strong advocate of good ole' Notepad. Never fails. The epitome of WYSIWYG editing.

    However, I've also taken a liking to Microsoft's Expression Web (formerly Frontpage). Easy straight-on editing, with the possibility of switching to script with the touch of a button.

    Use those in conjunction, and you can't go wrong.

    Alternatively, you could just use an on-line or 'in-house' editor, such as those provided by Bravenet, Wordpress, Blogspot et al.

    Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd I'm outta' here.

    Sadly, I wouldn't which is harder since I have only done one of those. I have wanted to make an app for some time now but to lazy to do it plus I don't know where to start.

    P.S
    As someone suggested use notepad+ to learn html and css. It's very good.

    To some extent it really depends on what you want your site to do and what it's purpose is.

    Unless you really want something specialist you're probably best off looking at something like wordpress, drupal, joomla.

    I use Yola to design and host the website for my Young Enterprise Company https://www.yola.com/

    It takes you through the process step by step and provides a nice graphical interface for designing the webpage. You don't need to code anything and they also help you choose a domain name.

    If all you want is an easy way to make a simple site is's great. My website only took me a couple of hours from starting to publishing it. Here is it www.pop-upproducts.co.uk

    (Smartphone) Apps are an order of magnitude harder.

    Notepad isn't a WYSIWYG editor. Neither is it a good editor. Sensible editors with tag detection, code completion, syntax highlighting etc are brilliant tools.
    (Expression Web is decent though).

    If you want to use the HTML and CSS method then use either KompoZer or Dreamweaver, if you want to use a CMS then there are loads to choose from like Joomla and Wordpress.
