Building your own website is not that difficult providing you follow some simple steps. Many companies run a successful business offering this service however 90% of this business is generated from B2B (ie business creating for companies).
However the cost implications do not really justify the outlay of 100's even 1000's of $ 's for a personal website. You may have come across many Magazines advertising the fact that they can teach you to build a website in 24hrs using the trial software available with the magazine, and this on occasions is true, however do not be fooled that it's that straight forward.
As with anything you will need to learn some basic skills before being able to complete the task to a professional level. – If you were to buy a book on "how to lay bricks" you would not then attempt to build your own home, possibly start with a simple wall or even a BBQ in the garden.

I have over 10 years experience in website design and development however never experience in teaching the skill. I have however searched many books and "idiots guides" and have come across many good courses and some terrible courses. I can not stress enough how much the internet is changing daily and it will leave many people in its path, the only way to keep up with this industry is to start with a true understanding of how it works.
The proud feeling of launching a website is something I feel on a daily basis though it does not compare to the feeling someone will get from launching their own website having built it correctly the right way having following some process along the way.
