[QUOTE="Bobby, post: 6478739]I’m not a programmer myself, but I’ve got a question for you guys. I want to create a website for the bussiness I’m starting, just a simple one with all the basic information. I would like to learn some programming basics to build it myself, but I think it might be better to use something like a website builder (I’m considering the 1&1 website builder, for example, or a CMS like WordPress). At the moment, I just know some HTML and that’s all. How long do you guys think it would take me to build this site completely from scratch, without any website builder or CMS?[/QUOTE]

While you're only going to have the basics at first, what features are you planning to have in the near future for the site?

[QUOTE="Raydan, post: 6423528]@Varsh: Yes you are right, Google Blogger is great because it is so easy to get started, but I would not be learning anything new. Plus I prefer having an own domain instead of a .blogspot ending. Part of my plan is to also learn the basics of web design while traveling, that is one of the reasons why I want to create my own travel website :)

@Shingo: Thanks, never heard of websiteX5 but it looks promising[/QUOTE]

Actually it doesn´t need to have new features that soon, because the website will just be there to provide information about my company. As long as the basics are there and the website looks professional, it´s ok for me.


And thanks Shingo, I´ll check that one out.
