First of all, you've got to know, at least some, HTML & have some ideas for a site (Like what you want it to be about, etc.) Then you got to figure out what kind of content you want on it, what you want it to look like, etc. Browse the net for HTML tutorials, backgrounds/layouts, site ideas, etc.
Then, you have to find a place that will host your site (like SPHosting - www.sphosting.com) & then you can start creating it, page by page.

I have a site hosting aria how did you get your site to look as it is?
Heh, a lot of hard work, dedication, headaches, miracles, etc. ;D I wanted my site to have a Rouge theme & I couldn't find a layout with her on it. So, I took a pic of her, cut it up & pieced it around an iframe like a puzzle. (btw, an iframe is like a window within a window. And it also helps to have a program for making/altering images.) You have to tinker with your site a lot.

You dont have to know HTML to make a site. Some programs do the work for you, and you just drag, drop, and upload.Macromedia Dreamweaver is a good one.Or, you can start your site online, on www.tripod.lycos.com/ , And set it up a bit, then modify it with HTML or anything you wish.
It's strongly advised for compatibility and standard's sake not to use "page builders" like Tripod and FrontPage. The Web Design forum is the widely recognized coding behind them rather than proprietary formats and programs that have many bugs and limitations. The only way to make a site with exactly what you want (that will work in all browsers) is to use HTML or XHTML. You can learn how here: xfox.digibase.ca/web/tutorial/xhtml
