You'll need a domain name and a hosting provider (normally the same.. for example I use hostmonster.com).. then you'll need to learn some HTML coding. I'd recommend buying Adobe Dreamweaver as it is very powerful but also has templates ;).
Webmonkey had some tutorials I used when I first started playing with HTML a long long time ago:

also, it might be worthwhile to pay someone to design the site for you, then you can just maintain it by updating the files......

If you don't want to spend money on getting a domain, you could get a 'http://yourdomain.co.cc/' thing for free at http://co.cc/ This is much better than free domains like 'yourdomain.webhosters.com'!! Then open an account with a web hosting website which allows users to use their own domain like the http://yourdomain.co.cc/ one. You would then need to create your own html files and start uploading them in the file manager up there. Your 'index.html' file will be the homepage. You can actually learn a lot by just going through 'page sources' (by clicking view page source in your browser) of various websites. Once you get a nag of things it's pretty easy and interesting. And the above said way is free too! :)

You may like to go through xhosting.com. They provide pretty decent web hosting services and their forums in there are pretty informative too. That's where I learnt web making for free! :P
