I run into people all the time who ask me how to get their own domain name, custom e-mail address, and website. I usually steer them toward DreamHost, but something that DreamHost is lacking for the beginner is a website creation program. Since I code my websites manually (Programmer's Notepad 2!) I don't really have any experience with website creators. Does anyone have any recommendations for software that would be great for a beginner? I'm open to all suggestions, but here is what I'm looking for:
- Low cost - free would be great.
- The beginning user should not have to see any HTML code.
- Has some nice looking, non-gimicky(is that a word?) templates to start with.
- Built-in FTP would be great as well.
