    im doing fine on making nice looking sites (html/css) but if i add ...say like a "sign-up" page with a form..it wont be functional will it?..without serverside programming to build a database of members? not sure how that works..what im after is to limit all pages (except home page and sign-up page) to members only. or at least just have a sign-up page just to keep track of customers. so far from i have learned..the functionality of that sign-up page wont work until its on a server. so will the hosting company take care of that or do i need to code it? sorry, im a noob to this, just trying to understand how it works, so i can do it or learn what i need to know so i can do it. ty in advance for your help.

    Like in your other post (the other thread you started), you'll need to learn PHP
    or Perl ... server-side scripting languages. PHP is most popular, and tons of online
    tutorials (search using Google).

    PHP only because there is so much information available online,
    forums, tutorials, script examples, etc. I guess if you are into
    Windows Servers, you would go the ASP route.

    ANY programming language is beneficial, just to learn how the
    programs work. The flow, the use of variables, arrays, databases, etc.

    Once you learn a language (even C++ is a good one), you'll pick-up other languages very quickly.

    Don't worry if you are aware of the logic behind programming and good in understanding them
    You will not find any difficulty in learning any of the computer language.
