    Well if you got a domain then you need hosting.

    You can use something cheap like Hostgator Baby Plan

    Whatever you choose always make sure you get a hosting with cPanel as it is the most used and easier.

    Your hosting will give you some name servers go to your domain registrar and set the name servers so that they point to your new hosting account

    Once you get that look inside of cPanel for something called Fantastico, or Quick Install or Softaculus and use that to install wordpress in your site as is the most easier platform to use and most noobs and advanced guys use it.

    The there you go go to your wordpress backend and install themes, plusing add, content ect ect and you got your site

    Find a web hosting service and set up a little WordPress blog.

    Laters you can try playing with real CMSs like Drupal and web frameworks like django.

    No seriously bro. don't feel 'dumb' this is how you learn by asking. There's nothing worst than a thread full of smart asses

    No ones picking on you (at least i'm not..)

    Yup install WP and you'll have a 'website' from there the 'fun' begins.

    If you don't know WP Youtbe and the blogging sections are your friend....

    Stay inspired!

    Cheers!

    Did you research your domain, is it an emd? What are you looking to do in terms of income for the site? Like others here have suggested, you need hosting, then install WP, add quality content and hey presto, your very own site!

    I believe there is a sticky in te Whitehat SEO section titled something like Complete Guide to Starting a Website, has a very good tutorial and step by step with suggested names for hosting ect, I personally use hostwinds
