Post Creating a Website

I have been asked to help build a website for a local restaurant. The problem: I don't know how to build websites. It doesn't need to be anything complicated-- just a relatively simple place to view menus and services and such. I know that there are services online that will basically walk you through it, but I'm not sure what would be best. Is Go Daddy anything worth checking out?

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Creating a Website

I have never used GoDaddy for anything other than domain registration (not hosting, as seems to be a popular rumor), so I am unsure of how they stack up against other services in the web site creation space. However, the services they provide which I do use are quite simply stellar. I think they would be my first stop aside from this site's host, if I were looking for that service.

Crandy, if you don't need anything too complicated (like a shopping cart, etc) then GoDaddy would be fine to use. Check out jimdo.com too. Easy set up, nice templates. Cheap.

eta: x10hosting offers some different packages.


(btw, I know nothing about this stuff)

Re: Creating a Website

Crandy, I have had a lot of success with WIX. They have many prebuilt templates - many perfect for a restaurant. They do a good job with hosting. I built two websites with them that looked quite professional despite my having a role in it.

Re: Creating a Website

Crandy, I can't help you with site hosts because the one's I've worked through in the past have always specialized in Real Estate sites. But I do know that what will probably help you a lot is that you need to have the ability to edit the site in WYSIWYG mode (What you see is what you get) rather that html.

Re: Creating a Website

If you are doing something on the cheap, and want something simple, most word processors worth their salt will allow you to convert whatever you put together into html. It wouldn't be terribly sophisticated, but you would get a page up in a hurry.

FileZilla is a good free FTP program so that you can connect with where ever you end up as a server:

Is there a budget? The reason that I ask is becasuse there are commercial services that will do this all for you at pretty reasonable prices for simple sites.
