I've been thinking of getting a website of my own just for fun (not a chan, just for personal stuff and jokes and maybe later re-use the address+server for a lil mini-business thing), and to make an inside-joke abstract webNewspaper to make the day of some people I know. I've already checked that the address I want is free and not too expensive, but I've no idea where to go from there.
Is there any good collected page with info about just, how to run a website?
As far as I understand you would rather rent a small server-instance from some bigger company rather than selfhost and invite weird traffic to your home-network?
Also how hard would it be to set up my own mail-server on the site (is that even included when you buy an address)? Like, would it be a bad idea for a webstuff-noob like me that might misconfigure something or is it pretty straightforward (as long as you're not too daft to grok the manuals)?

Your registrar will provide the mail server and the setup is basically automatic if you use the registrar's service. For the website itself, you will use a CDN like Wordpress, or the registrar likely has its own CDN as well.
In short, ask your registrar.
Any idiot can set up a basic website with the modern tools provided.

Neat, thanks!
Though if one would like to have more fun and set things up oneself, get some experience with the manual gritty fun parts, is that pretty much a no-no if you're not on your own server (as in on-location hardware)? Or are there services that are more loose with what you're allowed to host?

This was true back in the day, yes. Nowadays if you're renting you're getting virtual servers from cloud providers. You're permitted root access to them, so you can install something like Apache Tomcat and build out your webpage from the ground up. Amazon is probably the most common choice, but I think they just have an Apache module (and many others) that eliminates the need to set it up directly on a VM. But you can definitely get a virtual machine running Ubuntu, Red Hat, or (god forbid) Windows and set up whatever you want.
If you want hardware level access, you have to rent rackspace in a data center and install your own hardware (pricey). You can still build from the ground up on a VM though if you want "true webdev™" experience.

I rent a budget VPS (virtual private server I think that stands for?) for $35/year. Setting up a LAMP stack is the dumbest easiest shit ever, which is Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP. You might spend a couple of hours doing it but it's really not that hard. It does itself. Google everything you need.

Then literally just put files in the folder for your webpagez and you can access them.

If people hack your shit, who cares? Keep a backup of anything important and just basically expect it will be hacked.

I have thought of making a site myself. Problem is, IDK what I would make of the site. Been thinking on making a site for javascript/html5 games, so I can exercise myself creatively.

A lot of avenues. I set up apache on windows and made a basic webpage. With links that actually worked. Took like 20 minutes. It looked fairly professional for the time. If something didn't fit, made a few changes. That was about the extent. Maybe set what you are thinking on localhost, your computer. A Virtual machine maybe of an OS that your host may offer. When you get it how you want you can I guess FTP it to your host when you have it the way you want. I think that is how most would do it. SSH to your project to administer it. It would be easier to start this from your computer, rather than starting it off remotely.

In the past free shell accounts offered webspace. Still do. Or you can pay for the services to run
whatever you like on. You could set up a usenet server. That should keep you busy, maybe on or
with centos? Yea, install apache locally. You should get the basic basics pretty quickly. Then go
from there.

it is pretty straightforward, i use whois.com. you can use the tool Softaculous from your control panel to install different software on the site, in different directories. Also 24/7 chat support is great and included. This applies for most web hosts as far as I know. email is included in the domain.

Trail run on a free website blog hosting first. Once you nailed down the specs, you can host your own for reals and pay for a proper website hosting.
