Most modern websites use some form of content management system (CMS). The majority of web hosts have made CMSs very easy to install or they may even have it pre-installed, depending on what type of hosting plan you purchase.
For simple websites, we recommend using WordPress, Weebly, or one of the many website builders available. These do not require you to learn how to code anything, you simply need to click and drag, and insert content. Most web hosts offer some sort of website builder software, or they offer 1-click installation tools for WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and more.
If you can use a program like Microsoft Word, then you should be able to handle it. And if you need help, there are plenty of tutorials, forums, YouTube videos, and more that can answer your questions, and guide you. Some web hosting companies also provide support.
If you have more complex needs or require a lot of customization and special features that a website builder or CMS can’t do on it’s own, then you can hire the help you need.
Beyond simply creating the site, you also need to look at marketing it, writing content for it, creating and editing graphics or video for it, and maintaining it so that it stays updated and secure.
Simply building a website won’t mean that it will get traffic, so all of these elements are important to it’s success and creating a great experience for your visitors that leads them to want to come back.
