There are lot of companies that offer easy and fast website building packages. If you search on Google for 'website builder' you will get many results. Lot of them are popular web hosting services or specialized companies. Even Vista Print is offering website package.
When you choose one of these website creator services you have to make sure that you can get your own domain name and you would be in the WHOIS contacts so that you would be able to transfer it to different registrar if needed later.
There are really many good ones but I would recommend using Mr Site website package that includes all the website software, domain name and also web hosting. You don’t need to install anything or know any coding. All you need to do is to register, choose your domain name ( Mr Site will check the availability and register it for you ), choose favourite design for your website, type in some text and upload some images if you want, your logo and your web site is ready. Nobody would ever know that it was not done by professional web designer.
Mr Site has three different website packages which are pretty much the same but the expensive ones just has bit more features. You can easily start out with the beginners one and upgrade it in the future.
When you purchase your package all you actually get is activation code and that is all you need to get started. I would say not to purchase the package from the MR Site website directly but buy it on Ebay instead as you will get it for the fraction of the original price and you get the activation code emailed to you strait away with most of the seller.
Once you have the activation code just go to Mr.Site Activate, enter your code and follow instructions.
Admin section of your site is very easy to understand and comes with many options, if you get stuck with something you can go to the help section or just use green live chat button to get some advice.
And as I said there are lot of extra features you can add to your site to make it look more functional and professional.
And also lot of widget you can easily add and remove as you like with just few click of the mouse.
But before you decide, check out some other easy website builders as there are many you can choose from. Lot of web hosts like HostGator or GoDaddy and lot of others offer some website builders options. Some of them you can even try out for free for a month or so before you decide whether you like it or not.
