they tell you when you sign up for your domain name. You need to pay for domain AND web space. And some places have webpage builders so that you don't need to know HTML.
you can get an HTMl editor and in most cases they're pretty easy to use and don't require html. But Html is pretty easy to use once you have the template going.
Why not set up a blog?? they're easier to use. Unless it's for a business or a professional thing I don't think paying for a website is necessary. It's a waste of money. I've done it and i recently cancelled my account. I used dot5hosting.com . They're pretty cheap.
