First, I need to know do I need to buy a license to publish a website.  I am working on building a website and I am finding that I may need to get a license.  What do you recommend just a license or an extended license?  Or should I just stick to developing my site with a wordpress or premium wordpress.  I am finding out that I did not learn alot of things about web development in college.  Thank God for YouTube.com  Next I want a website that has a membership that allows unlimited access to website templates to create a website.

No.  Anyone can buy a domain name and hosting and publish.

and I am finding that I may need to get a license

From who?

Next I want a website that has a membership that allows unlimited access to website templates to create a website.

Okay, that's a whole other thing.  When you say "templates" do you mean you want to give users access to a template that they can download and use to create a new site or are you saying you want to become something an ISP where people pay you and get a web site in return?

The actual website that I develop - do I need a license for it?  I need to get a website template with a license to develop it.  I am working solo.  Yes, I would like to give users access to a template.  Can you help me?

If you are not building your site from the ground up but instead obtaining a template from someone else, then you need to either pay for use of the template or find one that is given away freely (with limitations in some cases).  

The license you might be referring to is something like the GNU GPL or Creative Commons or similar open source license?  Those don't stop you from doing the work but they can in some cases prevent you from making money from it or restricting the access to your source code.

I need to get a website template with a license to develop it.

Almost all templates grant you that ability but not all of them allow for reselling or obfuscation of the code.
