what programs would you recommend for creating a website?

I will be creating my own website here in the next month and I want to buy a program. I’m not rich so no $500 programs please. I heard dream weaver is good?

Anything would be helpful. I will choose best answer.

I agree on Dreamweaver. Its definitely the best I’ve found out there. However, If you’re also looking for free software to start out with, you also have options:

Visual Web Developer Express Edition 2008 – Microsoft put this out in 2008 for free. Its fabulous. It does a lot, but also basics. https://www.dreamspark.com/Products/product.aspx?productid=2 . This was the only link I could find from google, but you can search for it for other places to download.

NVU – http://net2.com/nvu/ – Another great one I’ve used. Simple and straightforward.

Also, just so you know, these days, you can create excellent websites without using software, but looking into (also free) content management systems. The easiest one to start with would be WordPress which is just great, and most major hosting providers have easy installations for it. You can even download thousands of free templates online. http://wordpress.org/ (Check out sample sites: http://wordpress.org/showcase/),

  1. Dreamweaver is the best. It is also part of Adobe Creator’s Suite so it is really expensive. Look into Microsoft FrontPage, or HomePage I’m not sure the name. Also you can look at http://www.coffeecup.com/free-editor/ which is free, but i have never used it so i can’t comment on it.

  2. Dreamweaver does have a trial period. I don’t know how long though, but it should be enough for you to get your sight made up.
