Website creation software
« on: April 13, 2012, 07:00:52 am »
Can anyone advise on the best software for website creation.  I am a complete noob to website creation.  I have a new 1&1 account and I am staring at the page wondering what to do next.  My website does not have to come on live for 3 months.  Probably should employ a pro' but don't have much money. :(

Web site needs to be simple with picture of items nothing fancy required.

Need something simple for a simple person  :)  My wife not me!  ;)

I will be installing Peppermint three on a Toshiba Equium laptop with 2gb ram 80gb hard drive (yeh, cutting edge stuff!)

Thanks in advance.
Life is for living.  RIP Keith Floyd.   ;)

Then check if your 1&1 account supports hosting Wordpress websites ;)

Well then, for your own sake .. use Wordpress .. most of the work is done for you by whatever theme you choose .. the rest is just a bit of editing in an easy to use interface in your browser :)

I have no doubt others will tell you something similar :)

Wordpress runs on the web host (not your local PC).. so you'll need to find out from 1&1 how to set it up on their host.

They probably have a tutorial though .. or may set it up for you .. best ask them, or search their website.

Manual instructions for installing Wordpress on 1&1 here:
http://faq.oneandone.co.uk/scripting/php/23.html

and see here too:
http://antbag.com/how-to-install-wordpress-with-1-and-1-hosting/

But check to see if 1&1 have a "one click" wordpess installation routine .. 123-reg do, so you never know :)

Or phone them and ask.
