Hello Li Xue

To build a website you need to choose:

1 - the evironment (personally, I like FreeBSD, is robust and secure,
but Linux too is an option)
2 - a web server (suggestion: Apache2)
3 - a programming language (Perl should fit your needs. If you want to
handle a data-base, then the "dynamic duo" is MySQL/PHP)
4 - a text editor (plenty of that under all platform: dana for windows,
textwrangler for MacOSX, emacs for *NIX)
You also need to host your website, then you should look for a static IP
or a (sub)domain and a computer that hosts the site.

Hope that helps.
