I'm looking to get a website going pretty soon, but I have a few questions. First, how does getting a domain work? I'm planning on buying from godaddy, but after I buy the domain, how do I edit my website? Would godaddy provide an editor for me to put my code in? How would I tell the editor weather I'm writing in HTML, or CSS, or JS? Obviously I'm gonna learn a bit of HTML before I get a website, but I want to know how Id actually use the website as well.
Getting a domain is easy. Go to Namecheap and buy one for less than 15 bucks. It will also include free privacy so nobody can see who the real owner is.
After you get a domain, get something called 'Web Hosting'. This is where you will host your website. Also fairly cheap these days. I think 1and1 is offering them for a $1 a month.
Then just install Wordpress. If you want to code your own, better to learn some basic HTML. Everyone uses Wordpress though. Almost everyone.
