Most ISP's give you free webspace (50mb for example).

You may have for example an e-mail addy of [email protected] and webspace reserved for you www.squidgey.example.co.uk" target="_blank">http://www.squidgey.example.co.uk/">www.squidgey.example .co.uk

You can buy a domain name from a lot of places, I bought my 2 addys from Lycos. You have the facility of webpointing so anyone going to an the domain you buy, example.. www.squidgey.com will be redirected to www.squidgey.example.co.uk .. You can use a very simple html code so that www.squidgey.com remains in the address bar on people's internet explorer browser.

Pictures are simple to use on websites, and it is true that a picture can paint a thousand words.

If you need any help let me know.

Have a look at Dreamweaver or MS Frontpage for building web pages.  Personally I prefer Dreamweaver, but I think Frontpage might be easier for the complete beginner.  If you want someone to do it for you, I'd say a 5 static (no logins, forums etc) page site with design would cost you .. say.. �500ish.  Probably 1 day to iron out requirements, 1 day for design, 1 day for building.
You could try this ISP

I use this lot: https://order.1and1.co.uk/ for this site: http://www.chaosuk.net/" target="_blank">http://www.chaosuk.net/">http://www.chaosuk.net/ . It's all template-based, or you can use Net Fusion (which they supply with certain packages). You can test their proprietary designer (Website Creator) online - it's very easy to use!

you could try www.letsgetpersonal.co.uk


They offer a 25 page website with personal email and a really easy to use web site builder.
