Are you refering to the gravatar?

you create a site by using html language and css(Cascading style sheets)

Do you have any basic knoledge of programming like HTML,PHP,.Net etc,if not than you should learn basic knowledge or you can search web services companies which they provide website development and web design services.

How very helpful.

If you want to create website with chat,downloads,messages ect. then first learn PHP language and My SQL. Because without the knowledge of this two languages you are not able to create a website.

commented: just wrong -3

For creating website first learn programming language like HTML,CSS and PHP and then download and install Dreamweaver software in your pc,its really helps you to create a site with chat,downloads,messages ect

commented: dreamweaver? seriously? -3

you can create your webiste in cms easily

Some guide line how to creat a website:
1:Start Working on Webpages or Hire Someone to Build Your Site
2:Take Time to Do Some Testing
3:Take Your Site to the Masses

Are we to assume that the people we should hire are working for clickpencil.com? $99 for a basic landing page was it? Do you ride a horse and live in the Wild West?

It's easy to create a website -- just use a creater such as WordPress. You can create a basic site with no programming knowledge at all. And there are lots of tutorials, such as WebsitesMadeEasy

If you want to create a website, than you have to learn HTML first and than PHP. The best source for learning these languages is W3C. Take help form other sites also.

Not really. You have the choice of a plethora of server-side languages... php, asp, java, node.js...

It's amazing what you can do with basic js too - especially using third-party APIs and local storage.

Although php is great for many sites, static 'presence' sites can probably do without it.

I've hears php has lots of bugs that are volunerable to spyware, viruses, hackers, etc. Ruby might be better substitute for php

@diafol, that's what i meant :D
