I want my own website, how can I do this?
Well after you've registered your sire using a service like GoDaddy, you need choose how you want to build your website. A solid understanding of HTML and CSS will be helpful no matter what method you use but for beginners I recommend using a Content Management System. Probably the easiest to use is Wordpress but Drupal is also an excellent choice and offers more features.

What are some best practices for formatting a webpage?
-Although scrolling has become an accepted practice, in order to hold a user's interest, it's best to minimize scrolling. If you think your page has become too long, you may want to consider splitting the content into multiple pages -Avoid underlining text that isn't a link, most users automatically assume anything underlined is a hyperlink. If you need to emphasize a piece of text either bold the words or italicize them. -It's best to format the page's content so the most important information is towards the top. If the same information is going to be used often (like our chat widget), it's best to map the same content once instead of copying it multiple times. This way if mapped content needs to be changed, it will only need to be changed once.

Using HTML, how can I ensure my website meets WCAG 2.0 standards
There are a number of things you need to consider if you want your website to meet Accessibility standards. Color contrast between font and background, alternative text for images, and the general formatting of the page. Visit https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/ for a list of guidelines and I highly recommend using the WEBAim plugin to gauge your progress.
