For those who are completely new or with very less experience in programming, there are plenty of websites that teach you right from basics. Once you have a solid foundation, you can work your way up eventually by practicing more and more. Also, building a good sense of logic is what is more important in programming than learning syntax itself.

Below are a few websites that I would suggest for you to get started with:

1. http://www.w3schools.com
2. https://www.codeschool.com
3. https://www.codecademy.com/learn

And since you mentioned web programming, I believe you should be looking at HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP.

Hope this helps!

Good Luck!

This will require lot of self discipline on your part if you cant take colleges or classes.
I would also suggest to have a group of friends who have similar passion as you about creating websites. Also from getting a job perspective it will be difficult to land a job without any degree or experience. Still if you want to do it on your own and build websites here you go
1)HTML 2) Javascript/Jquery 3) CSS . this skills are needed at presentation layer of any websites. Although there are ways that without learning any of this you can create your own website which is by going online and use website templates from some third party.
Your question is very broad, i would like to know what exactly you are aiming or your end goal out of it so that i could better answer your query.

When it comes to programming, determine what you would like to do with a language first. The sites that Vineetha lists are amazing resources and I have used all of them to build my knowledge base. Once you define a language that you want to learn, decide what you want to get out of it.
My first coding project outside of school was a personal library of my books in MS Access. Once I had a goal in mind, I got a base knowledge from some online tutorials and tried to make progress using what I knew. As I learned more, I added features to the library database to make storage more efficient, inputting information more intuitive, and searches faster and more specialized. It took some time and daily practice, but the amount of skill in the short period of time was amazing. I had the personal library of my dreams in a few weeks and knew how to build it better by the time I was finished. I was able to pivot this newly acquired knowledge base to multiple projects at work (even though I'm not a programmer by field, education, or career).
If you would like to build a website, I suggest you start by outlining what the website would be and get started. Nothing replaces experience, so get out there and start coding.
As far as gaining a career in coding, I hear that most people establish a portfolio of software or websites to show desired employers. In the instance that you would rather entrepreneurial pursuits, the cost threshold since coding can be done with text files.

The very thing I would like to recommend is if you have passion of being a programmer, I will also advise you to start taking such courses at college. programming language is a dedicated or special languages. They are basically use d for applications, scripts or set of languages used by computers to executes. Hence if you make up your to be a programmer, then take some relative classes in college and move on with your dream. I hope this helps.
