Website creation software

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. :frowning:

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

Need something simple for a simple person :slight_smile: My wife not me! :wink:

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

Thanks in advance.

Then check if your 1&1 account supports hosting Wordpress websites :wink:

Thanks for the link Mark.

Allegedly it supports Wordpress via htp and ssh.

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 :slight_smile:

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

How do I get Wordpress? I can’t find it in Linux software database.

Ok found it. ;D

downloading tar now.

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.

OK, thanks.

Manual instructions for installing Wordpress on 1&1 here:

and see here too:

But check to see if 1&1 have a “one click” wordpess installation routine … 123-reg do, so you never know :slight_smile:

Or phone them and ask.

Thanks. You replied quicker than 1 & 1 support team! :wink:

Heh … ask em if they need me to provide support for them … for a fee of course :wink:

I did my site with wordpress at Mark’s recomendation, it’s a doddle and I do not understand web sites
