I want to build a Financial website like Paypal with interactive badges. Where do I start?

I've just registered for free trial and I've started front end development and I find it interesting. Now I've an idea and I want to make it into real product in a website but I am not sure if I've started on right path.

Please guide me!

Thank you and Regards,

A site like paypal I would imagine would be a bit complicated because it requires large amounts of security. You don't want people hacking into your database and viewing data. I highly suggest you start off with HTML & CSS and master those languages. Then, move on to JavaScript and have a good knowledge of the language. Then, the language that I highly recommend you learn is Java, but there are many more programming languages to pick from. Paypal is made with Java and Node.js. There is a Node.js basics on treehouse, so you can start there. There's quite a lot you have to learn to build a project similar to paypal, but with hard work and practice, you'll achieve your goal. Good luck :)!

Thank you :) i shall complete the front end development studies and then continue with java script and the start back end.
