Java will be good if you are planning to use dynamic content. You could use it for connecting a database to your html. (this is a simplified explanation)
If you havenít done a website before, read up on HTML and CSS (cascading style sheets).
A server is what your site is hosted on, I use Bluehost. Most do charge, around $6-10 dollars a month for hosting. There are fee server providers you can use but would recommend a paid service
Good luck and keep us posted on your progress!
