Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Website design involves a great deal of programming. Start with the basics and learn HTML. There are also several design applications that can do the basic programming for you. Adobe Photoshop for instance can take your design, cut it into blocks, and create an HTML file that displays what you’ve designed.

For more advance programming and design, you can use applications like Microsoft Visual Studio.

Before using these tools learn javascript, server side scripting, webserver. These will give you basic idea how a web site works as a whole.

Have a look at the following article: Web Design Basics.

    If you wish, your site can consist of nothing but .TXT documents plus maybe an index page of links to each document or a few directives for the server. Almost zero HTML and no CSS, no Javascript, nothing specialized at all.

    It all depends on what you mean by "design". Otherwise, the "basics" are already here in these comments.

    As you asked, the most basic designing tool is html. Open notepad and you can use html tags to make a web page. Here is a good link: http://www.w3schools.com/html/
