    I'm planning on starting a summer project to create a website of information for GCSE/A Level Geography students, where is the best place to start a webpage?
    I'm preferably looking for a free domain, one thats google friendly, and doesnt involve too much coding (I used to be into html and stuff, but ive forgotten how to do most of it!)
    Also, I don't have any software like Adobe Dreamweaver or whatever.
    Any advice much appreciated!

    Firstly use the HTML5 boilerplate to start your build with a solid foundation. Explore this and look into LESS and Twitter-Bootstrap to further expand your frontend development skills.

    Use Google Chrome or Firefox with firebug to develop in as they have a brilliant range of debugging tools.
    On windows Notepad++ is a great editor and on Mac well try using Komodo Edit as it can handle a wide range of web languages and is nifty if you ever look at scripting.

    Domain wise try using a and search for a cheap or free hosting solution.
