Get your domain name from a different place than where you get your hosting.
Avoid anything with the word AOL in it. My favourite is for
domains and I am using for some of my hosting ....

with frontpage avoid using

shared borders
navigation bot
hit counter
hover buttons
fp forms

instead use

include pages for menus
your server stats for visit counts

work in split view and avoid turning on the common or formatting toolbar
then you won't be tempted to use them.. instead use the css editor.

I would also read and read .. about webdesign .. there is quite a lot to get
to grips with... its not just about creating a site its about how you do it.
