How could I get my son started in web design?

Episode 972 (22:18)

Tony from Los Angeles, CA

Tony's son wants to start a website and wants to know what he needs to do to get started. Leo says purchasing a URL is a good idea, but he doesn't have to. He could start off with a free site like WordPress or Blogger. If he wants to learn web design and start from scratch, then Leo advises using a Linux LAMP Stack (Linux Apache My SQL and PHP). A very easy way to do it on the PC is to use XAMPP from Apache Friends. It has a simple installer that can install even to Windows. Then he can create an internal site and when he's ready to launch it, he can get the domain name, a hosting company, etc.
