A host provides webspace only.

Oneandone.co.uk will however offer free webdesign software and tools + a easy site builder.

Nither will build a website for you, unless you pay a webdesign company.

either by your ISP - in the free webspace that all of them provide - or by a dedicated web-hosting company.

As Gaz 25 says, some web-hosts provide you with software tools with which you can build your site, but usually it's up to you to acquire your own WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) web design program from the many available to you.

Once you have completed the design you can upload the finished site to the server, and then it's available for anyone to view on the Internet. If you decide to use a dedicated wb-host (and if you're serious about your site you will), you'll need to buy a domain name of your own. You'll almost always be able to do this via your web-host.

If you're a complete novice you may find it helpful to ask specific questions along the way, and you can do that by returning to this thread - one of us will try to come uyp with the answers.

You could ask your internet service provider if they have website hosting facilities. I have a site hosted by my ISP. However,such hosting may be limited in size but are good for starters.

My web hosting company, Openlux will be launching in December, and because already quite a few peoplehave asked me about this, I will look into adding a site builder feature into my control panel.

Below are a list of the main features I will offer:
Webspace to upload your site
Domain (like click here)
email addresses
Advanced scripting support.

And one of the best features - the cheapest package is £10.00 per year, and it has everything to create your own website with email support.

Email me if you require anymore information. [email protected].

Price seems attractive, but what does one get for it?

Whilst I agree with the FE re the use of a dedicated webhosting company. I have two basic sites with a free hosting company who do offer web building facilities. Try click here
