    You should start by getting a list with websites that you'd like . Then find a model for your website that you think it would suit you the best .Afterwars you just need to analyze the code and see how you can make your website look as you wish . It's a simple process if you plan ahead . Otherwise,you are a long way till creating your first website .

    Also i'd suggest to use wordpress as a start.

    Sometimes you don`t need skills for website creation, you just need money and the services of one of web builders players like from <snipped> will be under your command. But no one can create your site better than you, so if you want to create it by your own hand it`s better. For website creation html and java is necessary to have in arsenal. First, find what you need, plan it and create. Wordpress would be a great start.

    Html, css, & JavaScript are client side languages. This is very useful for building static content sites. However, if you are looking to build a e-commerce site with ordering, shopping cart, user accounts, etc, you will need to learn a back end programing language like php or asp.net

    If you have basic knowledge on HTML, CSS and JavaScript and need to extra information about web programming you can learn little PHP and MySQL. Than go to wordpress.org and learn basic knowledge on it.
    Because WordPress CMS is very easy and you can design there very attractive website with WordPress. Even you can design unique website with WordPress.

    For full documentation please go to http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development, there are so many codes and it's a bit hard to follow as it's full of technical details.

    But the basics you must follow if you want to develop your unique WP website:
    1. Generally, you can change the look of a theme just by modifying the CSS file. That controls what the site looks like. You can create a child theme where should have one off the file name style.css, you can add there your customs CSS codes.
    2. If you need to change the structure, then you'll have to use PHP codes and edit the child theme function.php file.

    Hope above information will helpful!

    I would learn PHP with a good book, trying to code its examples from scratch. Once you have basic skills I would learn an easy and powerful framework for that language, for example Codeigniter.

    The easiest way to learn something is to simply get started. Find example code, books, tutorials, guides, and try-and-fail a lot.
    But to answer in more detail, I would to say that:

    I have three questions:

    a. Already have to know PHP and want to learn CodeIgniter
    b. Do not have to know PHP and want to learn CodeIgniter
    c. Have to know object-oriented PHP already and want to learn CodeIgniter

    In either of the first two questions, I recommend you to learn that the object-oriented programming first. Because if you do, you'll have a pretty easy time learning the majority of framework PHP.

    More over: In CodeIgniter official website have details documentation regarding this framework.

    I would suggest the following web design tools that will help you to create a great and unique site without needing to know more a lot of coding or programming.

    1. Webflow - creates sites across a range of devices
    2. Builder Engine - creates large websites in CLOUDS
    3. IM Creator - available stunning templates
    4. SquareSpace - photos for free
    5. PrestaShop - great open source ecommerce solution
    6. Dunked - creating online portfolio without learning a code
    7. Wix - HTML5 based website builder
    8. Strikingly - optimized for search engines
    9. Easy WebContent - HTML5
    10. Weebly - weebly subdomain
    11. Moonfruit - ideal for ecommerce websites
    12. Breezi - templates that suits your needs
    13. Cabanova - creates pages (3) for free
    14. Sitecube - for responsive templates

    Nonetheless, if you’ve got money to support for a site, you can actually leave this to a
    hand of an expert programmer.

    You have already a little bit of CSS and HTML, and you know that they are not real languages, and they live in the front-end, you need know to decide what going to drive those two from the back-end, a real language like PHP, Python, or Ruby.
    If I were you, I'll Install a local webhost, get some scripts, and play with them for a while, then try to link them together. No coding websites, no studying, just experience

    You don't need programing skills to create a website (any kind of website, be it a blog or e-commerce site). Choose wordpress as a content management system and customize it with plugins and you can use your wordpress site as a personal blog or ecommerce site such as online store, affiliate store or dropshipping website. All you have to do is find appropriate theme (theme is based on the niche of your website), add plugins (you need woocommerce for ecommerce site). By the way, you can also use website builder. When you use website builder, you don't require programing skills. In any case, if you want to learn programing start with HTML and CSS.

    Why don't you try to create website in wix, you do not need to have programming skills to make your website customizable. At wix you can create your website free with optional themes which will surely be a user friendly website. You just need to choose what kind of website you are creating, the category and what products or contents you will put in it.

    When I first started learning HTML I only used notepad as my editor. I made some cool static pages in the past with it with the help of CSS. Then I made it interactive thanks to JavaScript. Practice makes perfect, you just need to know the basics to create a wonderful website. Now I'm using dream weaver.

    Since you mentioned javascript, i assume you know or have an idea on java programming. I recommend you use some framework to make your life easier. In our company we use struts on some web applications. You can use tomcat server for your development and testing : )

    You should know a lot about marketing or promoting and financial literacy since you're looking for business set-up skills. You should know how to price your products and to be able to manage accounting matters. Daily upkeep your administration and do your own research and analytics to track the upcoming trends and statistics of the current event, so you can set up your goal firsthand and scale up your performance ahead. You already have lord over the technical things to apply your business online, you now have the time to manage essential things about business administration

    As you know the HTML, CSS, Javascript then it's enough. You can directly start web development with any CMS of your choice like WordPress, Joomla, Magento.

    WordPress is easy to use and customize. You can update it's CMS easily. Just for working of contact form or any other forms which need to communicate with server, you should learn PHP. It is used for developing the scripts for the back-end.

    When I created my first website, I thought I had to learn so many languages to make it possible. But since I was running out of time, I only studied few such as HTML and CSS (I used bootstrap), Jquery, PHP, and MySQL. It was not the best, but I was proud of the outcome because I did everything from scratch. Now there are lots of frameworks that are available in the web, to make our site look amazing.

    You really don't need any programming skills to create and launch a website, but it sure helps. You can always use programs like Dreamweaver, Expression Web 4 or Artisteer 4 to build your sites. Like others have said, you could simply use WIX.

    I would agree to this comment Html, Javascript and CSS are the best language to learn. Most of the programmers prefer to start learning from this languages and later learn other back ends for their website. This is the perfect combination of designing or creating a website. Remember do not depend on other built-in website creations better to write your own so you will be able to personalize and customize things in your website anytime you want.

    Hello,

    I would say to create a good looking website you need to learn html,css,css3,PHP,MySql,Ruby.

    For wordpress you would need a solid understanding of jquery,php,html,css and wordpress.
