If you don't care too much how to do it besides plunking in information - get a 'content management system'.. (CMS). Drupal, Joomla, Wordpress... after you buy your webhosting follow which ever one you want for install instructions.. pick a theme.. apply it.. add text as needed. voila!

Do you want anything to be dynamic? Or, are you just wanting static content? If the latter, you'll only need to learn HTML and CSS which should be simple enough. I find w3schools really helpful for learning.

modi123_1 also suggested something really good. Just getting a CMS, would make things much simpler.

IMHO, unless you’re proficient in design, let a professional do it. for a private homepage it may not matter, but a website that is supposed to support your business, a beginner’s website attempts may scare customers off.
