I would say the first place to start would be research the topic.

You will need to understand some basic things about the following:

Client
HTML
CSS
Javascript


Server
PHP
asp.net
python
ruby
...

You will need to know the difference between server and client activities and what they do.

The client side is the parts you need to know to make a nice website. But if you want to have users and things saved to a database you will need to look at server side languages as well.

What languages are you comfortable with?

You can use almost any server side languages you are used to using.

I will move this to Web Development.

Nearly every popular language today can be called Turing-complete. A Turing-complete language implements a basic set of features to allow the language to simulate a Turing machine, but the important part is that any Turing-complete language can simulate any other Turing-complete language. That means that if you can build your application in a language like PHP, it can also be built using .NET or ColdFusion or Python or C++ or whatever else. It would be possible to write a PHP application that will execute .NET code, for example (it's already possible to use PHP to write a .NET application). Various languages make certain things easier or harder depending on the purpose of the language, but in general you can use any language to do anything.

I think it worth mentioning though, that Javascript is the only language that runs natively in a browser (discounting VBScript).
