I recently got into programming after I saw my friend's father make an app, so I decided to start with Javascript. I watch some tutorials on youtube about JS, HTML and CSS, but I don't think it's enough to design a nice good looking Web page. Can anyone help me out? I've already made a very simple page but I have not hosted it yet.

" Can anyone help me out? "

With what??


"but I don't think it's enough to design a nice good looking Web page"

It might be, ... and then again it might not be. ... It really depends on what your goal actually is.

I really just need to get better with CSS and javascript. Youtube videos just can't answer questions instantly, and I want my pages to look more proffesional. Thanks!

Okay, javascript is not particularly a requirement for 'professional' websites but something you do need are design skills.

Making "moving, flashing, things" with javascript is not really professional. UNLESS it is a website for the local Bordello of course.

Alright, thanks!
I don't know if it would be asking too much, but could you teach me a little CSS? I know some basics but I would like to learn more!

Thanks!

Sure, it's the kind of thing I do by answering questions at a couple of websites (my own included), though knowing what you are stuck on would make it easier.

However, here are two things everybody needs to know when starting out so I wrote an 'article' on.

Positioning, http://webmaster-talk.eu/articles/8-website-development-and-design/13-css-positioning

and

Document/Element 'flow', http://webmaster-talk.eu/cat-quick-tips/14-qt-webdev-and-site-management/16-qt-document-flow

The two are closely related and their effects and their use are what many developers, both old and new do not quite understand so do use inappropriately.
Positioning is also something that the majority of popular "visual" (drag 'n' drop) editors do quite badly.

And to be fair, I know much more about the 'mechanics' of CSS that I do about the aesthetics, so I leave 'design' to others while I stick to development issues, the two are often confused and conflated into the one thing as being 'design', so I differentiate, by using "design" as being the 'look and feel' of the pages with "development" being the underlying structure of elements and styling.

I don't know how to explain it, but I don't know an effective way to cut off a background so that it doesn't go the whole way across the screen. I don't know if it's a good way to explain. I'll check those links to see if there's a solution!

Thanks

A background what?

Image?

or

Colour?

Also "screen" may not apply to the display of a web page, as the user may not be using their browser at 'full screen', on "mobile" devices generally browsers do run at full screen width but desktop machines probably not.

So you have to consider the viewport width rather than the 'screen width'
