    Does anyone have a reputable site that has step by step instructions for building a website?

    As far as which type of site, and any idiosyncracies associated with it, you'd have to learn that on your own.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    What do you mean by building a website? Most of us are either designers or developers and tend to lean towards those for building a website. On the other hand, I come from a content background so often this kind of question makes me think about building an online business.

    If you want to learn web design and development, The Game has given you a good resource though I prefer https://www.freecodecamp.org/

    Here are the options.

    1. You can hand code a site. To do that you need to know at least HTML and CSS. CodeAcadamy is the one I am a little familiar with but I am sure the resources that the others have provided are excellent. It isn't rocket science and with a few months of learning you should be able to do it.

    2. WordPress is another option and probably the one I would recommend. It is free and a one click install from most hosting accounts. 27% of websites are using WordPress now so it is very popular. It is easy to use and you don't need to know HTML or CSS. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube showing how to build a web site using WordPress. There are lots of nice free templates and lots of free plug ins that help build a nice site. It is pretty good as far as SEO as well.

    3. Use a drag and drop web site builder such as Wix or GoDaddy's site builder. They are pretty easy to use or so I am told. It may be just a bit more expensive but not bad. SEO isn't as good and they are not portable. In other words if you switch hosting you have to generally start over.

    Codecademy (I think someone mentioned it) has a 10-week course on building sites from scratch. I too would recommend Wordpress. Although, I'd say the more HTML and CSS you know, the better so that you can customize your themes, etc.
