I would like to make a website, and would be greatful of some trustworthy recommendations.
I would like a recommendation on what web design software I should use. I'm thinking of getting Dreamweaver MX 2004 second hand, and could be swayed elsewhere, but for no more than £100. Are there any good open source alternatives, I already have OpenOffice, but haven't looked into any options there.
Also I'd like to create a basic forum. Whats the easiest way to do this.
Also if someone could recommend a good Domain host to register with, for under £5/month and UK purchase if possible.
I know this is basic questions I should probably find out myself, but I'd really appreciate your expert advice.
