hi all ,

I want to create a website! Here is what i want.

A welcome home page which links to a couple of other pages with pics etc. I also want people to be able to download small 6/7mb zip files from me,(ideally after registering with my site) It would be cool to add a message board or forum aswell.

If anyone has any suggestions on how I should go about starting this or can point me in the right direction I shall be extremely grateful. This uis my first attempt at web design so i need siomething basic!!
Thanks in Advance!!!

Could I ask what the theme will be....!!! & also do you have web editing software available??

click here to see the site for the Gentium font Anyone can download it without registering, but there is a survey that one can fill in.

You will need some webspace. I would recommend avoiding those that use advertising if you can. NTL provide some free webspace.

A forum may be a bit much to manage if you are new to websites. You could post an email address and add a feedback page, which is what I did:

Unless people are using broadband, 6/7 Mbytes is not small. Try to reduce file sizes if you can. Are they pictures, fonts, or music?

you will have to go a long way to beat 1&1. You can use the forum CGI scripts amongst others. You can also use their web designer.

front page is a good tool to use.. just use it as you would a normal word document add your content insert pics and links and your set to go. imho the best way to learn is to experiment yourself
