Question: “Can anyone suggest a good software program or site where I can learn to create a web site?” — Ina Piner-Givens


There are some WIKI programs out available that allow you to do a website. Some are really easy and very affordable.

I recommend Yahoo Sitebulder. Unless you need something fancier than HTML. The hosting and domain, it is easiest if you buy them through Yahoo also, costs about $12 per month. It is a very easy program to use. I created my company's website with it and many others. Good luck.

Front Page is a good one for novices to creat a web page. I'd also recommend taking an HTML class to get the basics of the language so that you can tweak your page once it's built.

There are lots of great websites with HTML primers. Just type HTML in a search engine, and you'll find all kinds of primers. I haven't created a page in years but I always had fun doing it! Enjoy!

I built a website for our agency's Board of Directors using the Unite software ( You don't need to know how to do code. It's worked very well for us.

Wow! Thanks for all the suggestions

Thank all of you for the wonderful suggestions. This is very helpful

There is also a website generator site that you can pick the design you want and have the whole page there to edit as needed.

Before you go out to purchase a program, you should first decide what the goals of the site are and who your site target audience.

Other factors to take into consideration are:

1. Who will maintain the site on your staff?
a. What is this person comfort level with the cyber world?
b. Who will have access to up date the site?
2. Is this site to be a profit or non-profit site?
3. Is this site collecting information from visitors?
4. How do you want your information to be delivered/presented?
5. How will this site be promoted?
6. What are your deadlines (benchmarks) for this project?
7. Most important once the site is finish what type of hosting plan and feature do you need and can grow with?

I am presently using and for my websites because of service level and feature. For example with MayonWebHositng Hosting Plans start at $3.99/month which is ideal for most individuals and small business. They offer plenty of free stuff that would cost extra with many other hosting companies. Most important they are friendly and professional. Both of these hosting companies have templates and the serves you need to get your site up and running within 24 hours and keep it running. There are also companies like that offer free site builder with their hosting plan. HOWEVER, if your site is going to be a Blog or something simple and you don’t care about advertisement on your site you might want to look into a “Free” web hosting company.

Just remember the first thing is to figure out what is the goal and purpose of the site you are building. Once you figure out your needs you will be able to save, time and money because you want be wasting your time on something that want provide you what you want or give you what you don’t need.
