I work as a QA analyst in a web site development company.
Please let me know, will QTP be beneficial in web site testing.
If yes, please let me know how I should start using QTP.
What are your requirements?
What is web site built in?
What in house skills exist for automation?

-I am actully a manual tester over hear, but wanted to implement the automation test techniques here.
- We develope web sites on wordpress.
The sites are of both kind, simple and ecommerce.
- Not aware much of the Automation testing. But for the better future opportunities I want to widen the horizon.
First thing before going to automation is identifying which tool supports your requirement.
The biggest challange is getting the budget after tool finalization(resource cost+tool cost+ environment costs+etc..).
There are other open sources like selinium which are very good for the web testing(as your requirement is purely web bases)
How ever if it is for your leaning purpose you can download the 30 days trial package from HP site.
when things gets harder ,the harder gets going
You need to get demo versions of a few tools. Most will allow 30 days.
You need a Proof of Concept of each tool against your system.
However if you have no in house skills then anything you do in the way of trials and Proof of Concept will have little value.
Hire consultant to evaluate what is needed it will save you money in the long run.
Also don't fall into the trap that thinking Open Source is free. I have seen some very expensive Open Source projects.
