    There are several levels -

    first - decide on hosting whether you have the servers and the administrators to support it yourself, or if you want to "rent it" from a separate company.

    Either one you choose you have to determine what kind of technologies you want it to support.
    for instance:

    HTML/Javascript (pretty standard)
    this also is related to an e-commerce solution (as touched-on by rockmansattic) which would require SSL (secured socket layer [when you see https: in your url, you're at one of these layers]) to accept credit cards.

    After that, it's a matter of contacting a web developer/site consultant (Like me!) to figure out your site layout, the best site development software, number of people who will maintain the site and the size of the site, size and limits of tables in the databases, menu layouts, graphics and all the little details that make web sites useful without getting too cluttered.

    Your question is a broad one.  Does it include the likes of when, how much, by whom, the list goes on.

    If it is just a matter of actually creating the website ignoring the hosting options and URL purchasing and whatever else then I have a seven step guide to how a website should be created (IMHO).  If any of these steps are missed then you are likely to have a website that is missing something.  Or at least so my experience tells me.
