I had an idea for a website I want to make. I already own the web space, etc. I've had the space for a while but didn't do anything with it (one of those deals that occasionally pops up so I got in on it quick), until now. I have a copy of Microsoft Expressions (free through my school) and an image of how I want the page(s) to look.

I was wondering if anyone could direct me to resources that would explain how to accomplish my goal.

In any case, here is the image.

I want to have the page look like this, but be something of a template that I can change the colors/font on with ease.

Any help or w/e will be appreciated.

It should be pretty easy to get that using some basic HTML. Check out http://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp

The way I understand it, W3Schools is not recommended for a variety of reasons, there should be a high tier result on google that has a list of reasons why. Still if you only want something trivial like that picture you may be able to learn how from W3S.

Can you clarify a few things?
  • Do you have programming experience?
  • Is this going to be a static site, e.g. can users interact with the site or just view it?
  • Do you have anybody working with you? If so what are their skills?
  • What does your webhost support? Some only support static HTML pages, some do .NET, PHP, etc.

I have some programming experience (C#).

I suppose the site would be static, but I'm also thinking of some kind of comment section below the stuff seen in the image.

I have an artist friend who made that image using excel and photoshop.

I haven't fully inquired what they support. It's Stablehost if that make it even a little bit clearer. I've basically been sitting on this space for a while now.

Edit: I checked their site and saw this -

PHP 5.2.x and PHP 5.3.x support
Percona / MySQL 5.1
Ruby On Rails
Perl 5.8.8
Server Side Includes
Free Perl Module Installation

Perhaps it is relevant to this topic?

That would be correct. See http://w3fools.com/

Slateboard, if you know C#, why not build a website leveraging it? The tools are free, and there is cheap hosting for ASP.NET websites as well.

Checked out w3fools, much of that stuff seems to be nitpicking to me, plus when you check the actual pages it seems they fixed some of the problems. Either way, I don't care about w3schools, so just use any html tutorial website that suits you.

ASP.NET MVC would be a better option, especially if you are comfortable with X#, it is very easy to use, similar to ROR and fast, ASP.NET Webforms on the other hand isnt all that nice tbh. Theres many hosting sites that are cheap and support ASP.NET MVC
