In this post i will tell you about creating a website assuming that you have thought about your idea well.
1.To start a website it is not absolutely necessary to know any programming language.
2.You need a domain name(www.yourwebsite.com), a host and a CMS(those who don't know programming ).
3.A domain name can be purchased at godaddy.com.(world's no.1,Do a google search for "godaddy discount coupons" and use them to save a dollar or two. )
4.Get a Cpanel host(google is your friend. I am too).
5.Install joomla cms(can be done through Cpanel once you get a host.Believe me its simple.)
6.Go to digitalpoint forums and get yourself whatever graphics and logos you need.(spend some time for searching, find good service providers).
7.Any doubt's, ask me i will help as much as possible.

A Cpanel host is a host who provides the user with the option to control his website with Cpanel.

A host is one who stores your website files on his servers(think hard disk) and when a user of your site requests it provides him with it.
Cost can be as low as one dollar per month. It depends on the space and performance you require. For most small websites 100 mb is enough and this can be bought for a 1 $/month.


P.S. For your blog wordpress is the host.
