    If you only know HTML or CSS, you might want to look into PHP (particurally because there's a forum for it here). It's become explosively popular and reasonably easy to code it, not to mention all the tools you need to run it are free.

    Not to start the PHP vs. ASP holy war here, but why would you want to learn ASP

    I'd recommend PHP. Easy to learn, and as filburt mentioned the tools are free.

    www.php.net (Official PHP language site)
    www.mysql.com (The best free database server)
    www.apache.org (The best webserver to run PHP)
    There and Back Again :Ogre:

    Geocities doesn't support jack. I'm surprised people still use them.

    You're best off paying for a domain name and hosting. Look in the forums here for reviews; you can do it for under $20/year.

    there are more hosts that support PHP and PERL than ASP.


    i starting learning ASP but almost as soon as i got a book on PERL i gave up on ASP.

    i just find PERL a lot more friendly to work with.

    Thanks for the help everyone, I am only a newcomer to such languages like Javascript and DHTML, but I am soon gonna take an E-Commerce/Web Developer course, where we will be learning Perl, I can't wait to try and make some kick-*** sites but I am gonna have to learn as much as you guys.

    Another question:

    Does anybody know a good place to search jobs (work-from-home) webmaster jobs.

    If so, please reply to this post.

    Thank you again.

    You can post in the ad and service request forum here although obviously I can't guarantee anything.

    Pah, you wimp:cheeky: :laugh: :-D

    Digitalforce: Check out my sig for a few handy sites which will teach you ASP in no time. I'm also writing a complete beginners' tutorial at the moment, but that's no where near completion so that's not much help to you.

    If you're really serious about learning ASP, I suggest you get a book. If you are, I can definately recommend Sams Teach Yourself Active Sever Pages in 24 hours. It has taught me all the basics and more (and I'm a true ASP guru, if I may say so myself). The rest you will pick up from the web (e.g the advanced stuff like classes, load-optimisation..etc)
    K i n g s

    Several handy ASP Resources:
    4guysfromrolla | aspin | ASP101 | AspIt | learnasp

    Several handy ASP.NET resources:
    ASP.NET | .NET Experts | O'Reilly .NET | AspIt | 4guysfromrolla

    Several paid ASP/ASP.NET webhosts:
    Brinkster | Maximum ASP | Clicktech | Nodehosting | Uplinkearth | Webhost4life
