You could set up a free Wordpress site at wordpress.com for keeping track of your research. If you're worried about the domain name, you can purchase one for your wordpress.com site fairly easily.
You hardly need to know what a website is to run one of those sites: they have lots of great themes, and functionality to add on too. Plus, there's a solid community ready to help you out there, if you get stuck.
Another option is you could hire someone like me to develop a professional website that is custom built to meet your needs. FYI: I charge a good bit less than the earth.
