I would learn in this order:

1.HTML - make a basic webpage

2.CSS - change fonts, backgrounds, layout, etc. for multiple webpages at once

3.JavaScript - add dynamic content to web pages

4.PHP - generate web pages

5.SQL - create and manage databases

If you're looking for something simple, use NVU (it's easy and free!).

You have to buy one from somewhere like Namecheap or Godaddy. You'd need to get some hosting too, Dreamhost are nice but a lot of people don't like them. Godaddy's hosting is shite. I dunno, I haven't used anyone else in a while. Other people will have suggestions!

However, I'd make the website first then think about hosting and the domain, because from the sound of it you've never done done this kind of this before. It'd be quite a waste of money to buy a years worth of hosting, and not use it.

On a side note, Tizag have some very good tutorials on a range of topics including HTML, PHP and MySQL. I use them as a reference all the time.
