    Hello blackhat.!

    First of all
    (i know this is not the introduction thread but i tought id smack 2 flies at once) i would like to say hello to all of you here at blackhatworld.

    My name is Michael. 18 years of age.

    And basicly my knowledge about IT, programming and so on is about... uhm... well my computer needs power to start up XD.

    so.. heres my story: (FIY. im from denmark, always gotten straight A's in english but thats still not as good as being a native :)


    I was talking to my friend who works with websites and stuff, and we got to talk about his job and so on. Ive always had an interest in programming and IT, just never had the time nor references. But then my friend (dont know his username here) referred me to blackhatworld. And i must say im liking it alot here, 2 hours worth of reading and i already learned how to change my IP :). (thats a big step for me).

    Now actually im looking for the basics of creating a website since thats the #1 objective list of what i want to learn with this.

    Now ive found a few posts about this, but frankly.. you guys are F***'ing smart... I know i might be a noob at this, but everyones gotta start somewere..

    Ive gotten some basics figured out. But what i really want to ask.. Could someone be so generous as to sit down and explain to me Step by Step from the second i turn on the computer to the second im running a website?.. just roughly,, i know how to use google :)..

    (if someone already posted a ''how to learn a kid to make a website'' guide i havent found it. for that i am sorry and please leave a link if possible)

    Im not talking about the guides you smart guys are reading.. no seriously --->101<---

    I would very much appreciate and try to make it up in someway :)


    I would very much like it to contain one of my most burnings questions i didnt understand in the other guides:

    A guide told me that hostgator has tools to set up the website and such. i went there. found the tools.. dont know how to work them yet.. but if i were to buy a hosting or whatever you call it there?. what do i need?. just that?. do i only need a hosting site and a domain name?. and what the heck do i need to buy there?. Reseller hosting? VPS hosting? Dedicated servers?..

    And what does that even mean?..




    -I am deeply sorry if this is posted in the wrong forum. im kinda new here so if it bothers enyone just tell me. ill move it. - thanks

    Thanks for your time. - Michael/zhortew

    What kind of website are you looking to create ? some kind of niche site with ads or just a regular website for other purposes ?

    Okey!

    Well i myself find that Wordpress is really easy to use and has a ton of plugins and themes, and i would say it's very noob friendly. Maybe you should start there, there is alot of guides and tutorials online that is more to the 101 you are looking for. And if you have any questions you can just ask here im sure there is people here that can help you out if there is any problems. I use HostGator for webhosting and it works really well, good prices and so far good support so i can recommend them.

    Do you know any HTML or something like that btw ?
