That depends on the size, content and amenities of the site.

The cost of a URL (A.K.A) Web address (usually .com) can vary a whole lot. My two Web URLs cost - at present - about 15.00 US dollars per year for both.

Then there is the Internet Service Provider or ISP for short. My sites are hosted by inMotion Hosting. It costs about 8-10 dollars a month.

Now! Can one make a Website on their own? Let me put it this way: I have a degree in Computer Information Systems in Networking year - 2003. But I do not do bare bone personal sites. I love to push the line and go big on graphics, because I also have a Bachelor of Fines Arts in Printmaking 1992, from Arizona State University and I struggle to keep up with all the new Website code changes. To create a comments database, I had to relearn PHP and MySql database connection. The last time I used PHP was version 4. I am now using version 7.

That said: One can build a Web site using Web creation software. However, Even the simplest Website entails a daunting amount of time and usually has a very steep learning curve. Even with Web editors it is still a daunting task for a beginner to create a great website.

In my opinion, if I do not get people to say I definitely have to "Check Out Your Website" after I show them my Website most of the time, I have failed to impress them. Even with website editors, Creating a Website is not for the squeamish. I hard code all of my digital content and do my own Photography and image manipulation.

The first Website I created was around 1990. At that time most people would give up trying in a very short time because It was very difficult to learn Website coding.

Having a working website is just the beginning. Driving viewers to one's Website is far more difficult than creating one.

BOTTOM LINE: Building even a basic Website from scratch is out of reach for all but a very few.

Yes. You can have a Website. Some Internet service providers offer Website builders for free. Some Website builder software providers offer free or a free trial before signing up for a fee based version.

But be careful especially if one gets frustrated or stressed out easily. They might want to get medical approval before attempting making a Website.

I hope this helps.
