The first thing I tell anyone who is just starting out and wants to create their own website is to step back from the computer and grab some paper. Start writing down what things they really want on there web site, are they going to be selling something, is this going to be a personal site to share with the world, are you going to want pictures and or video, do you want to have links to other sites, is this site going to be for your business, if it is for a business is this for doing business on the internet or is it just so you can tell clients about your site and how to get more information about your company.

A lot of sites that talk about setting up a site skip the planning step, but this is a very important step that should be done even if you are not going to do business on the internet. It keeps you focus on what you want and it helps remind you if you miss something.
