There are many ways to get a website. The first step is to determine what you want. You can choose between a profesionally designed website, a simple website builder program, or if you are willing to spend enough time and effort a professional „selfmade“ website.
If you want a professional website, you should contact a webdesigner, or a webdesign studio. Those websites are very functional and estetic, but you have to invest a certain amount of money to buy one. You can pay for them monthly, or the first time when they're placed on the internet. Such websites are perfect for companies, or individuals which want to improve their reputation on the web.
The other option are selfmade websites. For this typ of websites you can use free internet services like Blogger, or Google Page Creator, etc. Such websites are perfect for sharing your thoughts, or interdoucing yourself to your friends.
In the case that you have time, I would recommand you to invest some time and effeort; and learn using Dreamweaver or Nvu. Dreamweaver is the leading web-development application. Nvu is a liite bit „weaker“, but it's free. If you learn how ou use Dreamweaver you can create websites for your friends, and with a little bit luck, after a few months you sholud be able to create professionall websites.
