If you have iLife 06, you have the ideal tool included!

iWeb is a simple web design application - perfect if you don't want to muck around with html code etc.

If you're looking for something slightly more expandable, I'd also check out RapidWeaver. It's similar to iWeb in some ways, but is slightly more customizable.

would i need a .mac account to use this though. i dont really feel like dishing out the money for one.
also im looking to have my own domain name.. nothing with www.mac.blahblah.com in it.
also from what i see every iweb webpage has a certain type of outlook. dealing with my site, my photos, my video, podcast etc. does this have to happen with iweb.

thanks for the help

you wont need a .mac account to use it.

if you need you own domain names, there are so many registrars out there.

I personally use enom.com ($8.95 per year per domain). I'm sure there are cheaper ones out there, but not by much.

for development, i use dreamweaver (not free), but for you, it seems like low scale web development...so dreamweaver might seem like overkill.

well im looking to make this website pretty professional, and also i would eventually like to get some ads on there.

also, is getting ads on your site the only way to make money off of it?

You may also want to consider a CMS (Content management system) although some of them can be initially confusing, you can get by with little or no coding.

Why not give Rapidweaver a try???? It's really easy to use, looks great, there are a ton of free templates out there made by users, and it comes with quite a few templates as well. It's also very inexpensive. Right now they're at version 3.2, but will be updating to version 3.5. For anyone who bought 3.2, 3.5 will be a free upgrade.

And their forums are loaded with tips, help, and the forum community always helps out.

2) A PC with a bunch of stuff in it.
