Are you

Code.

I build up a world
from what is but none.

Software is produced from code.

Most people might know me
but others know none.

Some can read/write code, others cannot.

Some people think magic is I
while some just don't wonder just why.

Some like to code, others don't care to understand it.

You know this thing all just too well
just answer the question you definitely can tell.

I'm actually doing basic coding now by interacting with Stack Overflow's user markup code to provide hidden answers, new lines, and other great SO features!

is it

imagination

I build up a world from what is but none.

You can create entire worlds from your imagination and nothing else

Most people might know me but others know none.

some people are more imaginative than others

Some people think magic is I

imagination is a kind of magic

while some just don't wonder just why.

not sure about this line, it's worded a little oddly

You know this thing all just too well just answer the question you definitely can tell.

It takes imagination to answer the question, thus proving that you have it!

  • $\begingroup$ Good guess, but unluckly that isn't the answer. Look at the one you said was worded oddly. Its that for a reason, good luck! $\endgroup$ – Jansen Norm Oct 10 '16 at 20:46

Is it

Programming/coding/code

The above satisfy the conditions. Depends on what you have on mind as the puzzle is quite generic and may have multiple answers.

  • $\begingroup$ Check it now. :) $\endgroup$ – Techidiot Oct 10 '16 at 20:57
  • $\begingroup$ Much closer, what is the internet made of, what makes it up. A job is based on this. $\endgroup$ – Jansen Norm Oct 10 '16 at 20:59
