    You need to get hold of a hosting service provider. Get an account, see what control panel he offers, get hold of the documentation and within no time you will be on your way. :)

    Hope you have a little bit of idea of Web Designing stuff.... all you need is a webhost with cpanel and some space to play with... you'll become a pro in webhosting in no time...

    yup.. GNUrag is correct , though neither WHM/Cpanel is free or opensource....

    There is a control panel for hosting providers called WHMsubs is open source.. but i haven't found any thing like cPanel which is free or opens source :)

    since you mentioned webdesign too , have you checked out
    www.nvu.com
    Finally! A complete Web Authoring System for Linux Desktop users as well as Microsoft Windows users to rival programs like FrontPage and Dreamweaver.
    Nvu (pronounced N-view, for a "new view") makes managing a web site a snap. Now anyone can create web pages and manage a website with no technical expertise or knowledge of HTML.

    THAT is also from the page!

    its a cool open source web development tool. check it out

    @ lamrinnirmal

    Please reduce ur avatar size.... coz u might be banned if u misuse ur right !

    For the one who asked about hosting and forum. Just a get a free or paid hosting and be sure you have cpanel with fantastico, once you have them, installing and running a forum like digit is damn easier :)

    Or else you can also signup with some sites tht host forum baords remotely :)
