One of the best ideas to get a startup website is to simply search on the Internet for anyone offering to build your site for free. You will find lots of freelancers and even companies out there, who will do it for you absolutely free. Many web-hosting companies provide web-designing tools, which you can use to instantly generate great looking sites at a click of few mouse buttons.
Of course it is up to you as to the number of pages you want to have, its content, its theme, the colors, and other details. I would suggest you study at least a dozen quality sites before starting building yours. Nothing can match the fun and satisfaction you are going to have when you complete and launch your own site.
