I was wondering if anyone has any experience in building a legit website from the ground up. Any advice on where to begin? Much is appreciated.

First thing you'll have to do is buy your domain name. You can look up and purchase domains at sites like and

Second, get yourself some hosting. You could always get a bundled hosting package with your domain at godaddy, but they tend to rip you off. is a good company for cheap reliable hosting, but you can probably find a smaller hosting company that's even cheaper.

Third, decide what you want to be included in your site(forum, store, blog, etc), it might sound dumb, but make a map of your site on paper, it gives you a better idea of what you're gonna have to get.

Lastly, if you know a little bit about HTML, CSS, Flash you can get software like Dreamweaver and build the site yourself, but if you don't know much about the previous mention items, you should probably freelance the sitebuilding. You can find a good site designer almost anywhere on the internet, but check for cheap ones. Also, sites like make building a amazing flash site easy, but to use the site you build with them you have to pay for their hosting plan(which is pretty overpriced).
