Thanks for the question! It is definitely tough to start if you're not sure what tool you're going to use, or if you're unfamiliar with building websites. Fortunately, there are many options that may help. First, the website type that you're trying to build is typically known as a "static" website - so you don't need anything functional like an ecommerce site. And you can use the simplest tools, if you wish. If that is the case you may consider looking at the Premium Website Builder - it will take you through the steps of building a website. For you, the advantages are that the first website you build with it is free (every subsequent website is $12 for the Builder) and it very basic. Its disadvantage is that you can quickly outgrow it and if you're looking to have control over every element in the site, then it may not be the solution for you.

Other possible solutions are WordPress (which is the most common software used for websites), Similar to WordPress, but simpler is Concrete5 - this may also be a good solution for you to consider

Joomla and Drupal are other options, that can later be used for content management. These solutions can be used to build the site that you want, but they are much more complex and may need to be tailored to meet your initial needs. The advantage is that they can adapt to any of your future website needs, but the disadvantage is a much steeper learning curve.

Since you are starting I will also recommend the following:

1) Determine a name for your website (called a domain name) and register it. You can do that with Web Hosting Hub if needed.
2) Register for a hosting plan if you haven't done it already.
3) Storyboard how you want the website to appear, then decide on the tool to build the page.

I hope this helps to guide you in the direction that you need in order to meet your website building needs!

Kindest Regards,

Arnel C.
