You don't have to know HTML, or break bank to build a great-looking website. WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML editors have made it easy and fast.
You're faced with decision of between a freebie HTML editor (not good) and a mini-site maker that screams, " I'm here to make a quick buck!" Alternative?
All's not lost. Here are some good low-cost (less than $100) website builders that will give you good results: Plus their limitations.
Go Daddy Website Complete: One of easiest website builders out there. And a darned good one too. If you are a complete beginner, or need to build a website quickly, go for this.
Comes with 400+ templates, plus a large variety of images. Spell checker, FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and preview included.
Building a website is as easy. Just type, drag and drop, cut/copy and paste content. Custom buttons easy to create. Image editor included.
You can change templates with a mouse click without loosing your work. Tables and forms easily created and edited. User Guide included, with examples, plus demo video.
Limitations; you cannot create independent pages and Java not well supported. You can only upload with in-built FTP.
Website Complete has some great features for ridiculous price of $14.95. Works best with Go Daddy hosting.

Actual Drawing: The learning curve for Actual Drawing can be overwhelming initially, but after that, you're on roll. Not as many templates as Website Complete (above) but quite a good variety.
