I really need to make myself a decent looking portfolio website ready for my third year, but have no idea where to start. I don't really have much experience in html or any other internet coding. I did make a basic crappy looking website for a college project once, but that wasn't anything special.

I've made the first steps by buying my own domain. I still need a host, but i dunno how much i should be paying for that. And i would like to know if there is any decent tutorials out there or even if you guys have any decent knowledge of web creation to pass on to me.

I want a nice clean portfolio but with some flash or something to to scroll through my work in a nice way. Have you guys got any cool suggestions on styles you've seen and/or how to implement those ideas?

Thanks.

Actually I'm not really that interested in a flash website. Just as long as i can make it look nice. Obviously i have an eye for design, i just wouldn't know much about adding it all together on the web page.

I agree with Psy, flash bogs down sites, and since your doing a portfolio type website having the very high degree of interactivity that flash provides isn't required.

Creating web pages is pretty easy as long as you know what you want and how to copy and past. You need front page or dream weaver because it makes testing a lot easier. There are also a lot of commercial solutions that can be bought outright but they kinda suck. (or are outrageously priced)

As far hosting, i would go with a known name like Network Solutions or Godaddy, or something like that because a lot of the 2.99/mo hosting websites around are less than reputable and they'll hold your site hostage the moment you do anything they consider "using to much resources"...

I've found it's impossible to be more human than human. Inhuman, however, is easy.
