    Wordpress.org

    Just install the theme & *poof* it’s free :xf.wink:
    (Pay for hosting, but there some free sure)
    Plus hosting is cheap imo; esp u needs start

    *Note Wordpress.COM & .ORG are 2 DIFF 1’s.
    Go with .ORG, over the .com, this ONE TIME,

    A domainer should focus on domaining. There are already a lot of platforms to learn and keep track of. For example, you have to keep track of your domain listings on the various mainstream marketplaces. Learning a new programming language is a multi-year endeavor. You only have a finite amount of time. If you learn anything, learn a CMS (content management system) and learn security. It will be a lot quicker.

    Front-end is html/javascript
    I use blogger.com, its free, but more importantly instead of changing paid hosts all the time, the information has lasted there (No Geocities)

    then as a domainer, can point to your own URL pages..

    Neither HTML nor CSS is going to be of much use to domainers.

    Probably more so than a programming language, most domainers would benefit from learning how to use formulas in spreadsheets and a sophisticated text editor, such as Sublime Text (including its keyboard shortcuts and regular expressions).

    You'd be able to significantly increase your efficiency in dealing with large lists of domains.

    We hope that helps.

    Great shout regarding Sublime text. Ctrl+Shift+L for the win! (Multi line editing to add .com or another extension to the end of a list of words is very useful...). As a software dev and domainer that's certainly one of the tricks I keep in my arsenal and whip out frequently...

    FYI, those are not programming languages.

    Ultimately, you want to use your coding skills with data sets.

    Another thread on namePros has lots of data and tools relevant to domainers.

    Indeed. The question was about the best programming language. There seems to be a confusion between what is a programming language and a CMS. Your answer was fine and I think you understood what the poster meant as opposed to what s/he wrote.

    And if we are going to be specific, HTML/CSS in the poll are not programming languages either. These are markup languages to determine styling of a web page. Similar to what a word processor uses to style a document.

    Additionally, you cannot use just one language to build a website. Dynamic websites (i.e. websites that use more than just HTML/CSS) need a combination of programming languages that include both server-side and browser-side languages. So if you use PHP (server-side), you will also need to utilize Javascript (browser-side). There is a method of updating pages that is called AJAX which combines different languages. So there is no one useful programming language. You need to be versed in a number of languages to be able to create complete websites.

    SQL is a database querying language which is pretty much useless to know unless you also know a server-side programming language.

    In addition to core programming languages, there are frameworks. Frameworks basically are reusable functions or libraries of code created on a specific programming language. So, Wordpress is not just a CMS but also a framework. Most CMS use frameworks. Learning a framework is like learning a programming language. But if you learn a programming language it does not mean you can program in the framework based on that language.

    The point is, don't go on a tangent to learn a programming language because someone tells you it will help in domaining, unless you are completely invested long term.

    I don't think a domainer will need to write codes.
    Excel+Word will suffice.

    However, if you are a serious domainer or a person who is making money online, you need to learn linux and use a linux operating system on your everday laptop/desktop which you use for business.

    I have made dozens of web sites using nothing but HTML.

    An examples is :

    https://www.fiction.us

    You can't learn everything at once so start simply.
    HTML is the first thing you should master.
    Not that I feel that I have mastered it.
    I first decide what I want to do.
    Then I figure out how to do it.
    I do nothing more.
    I am not trying to learn web design.
    I am designing web sites.

    As you make changes to your HTML web sites, you will
    run into a problem, and that problem is the cache.
    You will make changes to your HTML web pages, ftp those
    changes to your host server, and then visit your web site
    with your home computer, and you won't see the changes
    that you just made. That is because your home computer
    will display the web page that is saved in your cache
    rather then the web page that is currently in your host server.
    You can get around that for a while by pushing Control F5.
    But, eventually, even Control F5 won't defeat your cache.
    And of course the people who visit
    your web site regularly will have the same cache problem
    and you can't tell them to type Control F5.

    At this point you will want to design your web pages using PHP.
    Your home computer does not store PHP code in the cache and
    you can find anything you want to know about PHP online.
    When I can, I design in HTML first, and then write code in PHP
    which creates that same HTML web page. This is what I am doing
    with...

    https://www.filmz.us

    You are getting a lot of horrible advice here.
    Horrible advice is what you should expect in Namepros.
    Get used to it.

    For security, performance, privacy and freedom. If you don't want to lose your domains you have to use a linux operating system on your business devices. Linux is open source. Linux based operating systems such as Debian is not owned by profit oriented companies. This is very important in my opinion. Debian is free of charge, download and install on your business device if you value your privacy and financial security. I strongly recommend Debian to everyone.

    You can learn progamming languages later. I know several programming languages. But I have almost never needed to use. I am a webmaster. I manage my own web servers on Debian. I use debian on my everyday laptop too. I keep thousands of dollars worth of cyrptocurrencies on my Debian laptop without any fear for hacking. So if you a serious player on online business, you have to use a Debian desktop, in my personal opinion.

    You can do much with just HTML and CSS. That's how I got started. In the beginning I used to code in Notepad then FTP the files to the server.

    There is a beauty in keeping sites simple. Learning htaccess is also very helpful.

    Rather than making a sweeping statement such as this one, it would be helpful to your NP'er friends if you would specify and correct the bad advice.

    How about I just quote all the things that you said that were incorrect.

    Fine by me. Now, would you care explain why those quotes are incorrect? That is a fair ask, don't you think?

    Fair and objective as gets for pushback to pushback, watching this back-& forth.

    Unless you have ESP, your reply is fair :-P
