Most cpanel using web hosts have web site builders as part of their package I believe John.

I use eversft firstpage free html and php editor and start off with a basic template format to save me some time so I'm just altering that rather than staring completely from scratch..

Be interesting to see what other people add to this thread :)

It depends on what you want the site for John. If you want it to be social, Ning sites are easy to build! I just built one and it was not hard at all!

There are also places that you can build free web pages for promotion, such as Squidoo, Hub Pages and the like! If you want complete control over what you are building though, Joomla is great and free, there is heaps to learn there though, not so simple!

If your looking to build a blog I recommend wordpress. You can host free with them or buy a domain name from like go daddy and host with wordpress.

I also know of a place you can build your site and add a blog with many pages. I am not sure what the site is for but you get a domain name, 10 domain email addresses, hosting & affiliate program included. If you wanna know more PM. It is not free but it is worth it for just $10/monthly.

Actually, not to put William down...but I feel it's better to buy a .com and use a hosting service like HostGator...it may come out to just a little more but I think it's worth it.
To actually build the site...well my taste has turned to Wordpress...you can do so much with it now days and it's a super easy install through cpanel.

There are also plenty of free hosting sites like Viralhosts (disclaimer: yep that's ours) and webs and 110mb. With the web building tools they have on board, it should not be a problem making a nice website.

As Tycho says you have those 3 options he mentioned above, ViralHosts has a simple panel so you can set sites up in a few clicks.

We also give you a wordpress blog here at ViralNetworks with social buttons in the header :)

AND - someone said Ning, for setting up a social site, well we now provide 'networks' too where you get your own subdomain. Need to be a gold member or higher, but then you can make your own network right here on ViralNetworks! :)

both Wordpress and Joomla has been mentioned here. Any opinions on which would be the more easy one to master? I beeive Joomla to be more robust of the two, regarding setting up a fully commercial site?

It depends fully on the type of site you want. The advantage of Wordpress is the enormous community, number of plugins and number of themes that are available at the moment. Really beautiful free work like http://alivethemes.com and others really give you a head start. Not to mention that ViralNetworks offers you a free way to try out WP easily.

Joomla is much more complex, but it's kind of a 'war' that is not battled out with arguments but with 'I like this better, I like that better'; I like WP better, for any site (and I made *very* complex sites with it) while a lot of people like Joomla better. For getting up & running and extending slowly, I would take WP any day; you are selling your first item tommorrow instead of in many weeks :)

If you tell a bit more about what you would like to make then we can give better advice!

I am going to look into Wordpress to set up a new site. I don't know too much about starting from scratch but I figure I should just jump right in. Since Joomla has been cited as more complex I don't think it would be easy for me to pick up. Thanks for all who commented and I hope it is as easy for me as it was for y'all. Thanks.
