I want to create websites but the website people want hundreds of pounds to create one for me.
I have decided I may as well become a website designer as I want to create quite a few websites. I know nothing about computers please can you tell me what courses I need to enrol on. Do I need to go college or can I do this online
Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
Can you tell me in broad strokes what kind of website it will be as this matters for the course.

Theres a few websites I want to create with different niches

My niches are selling books, advice on parenting and a website on saving money.

Thanks Sabina,
By far the best way to start is with wordpress
It gives you all the tools you need and really cuts the learning curve. This way you do not need to know low level programming, but can focus on the content and design and let word press handle a lot of the technical side.
There is an excellent site that will give you a complete overview of how it works with videos and tutorials and you can access it here
A lot of it is actually free, sdo this is a bonus, but I highly recommend this is where you get started

Can you explain what word press is and do I have to join wordpress

Its a content managing system to make it easier to build websites, so you do not have to learn so much about the technical side.
Its a free tool you can download and setup yourself on a webserver or you can use a company that already hosts it such as this one.
