There is a variety of website creation software available, but the most popular is WordPress.
You will also need web hosting if you are looking to run a self-hosted WordPress.org installation. There are lots of hosting companies to choose from. HostGator is a solid company that isn’t too expensive. You can also check out coupons from Justhemes to save money on your hosting package.
Most hosts offer a simple one-click install of WordPress and then you can configure your site using thousands of themes and plugins until it is customized to your liking.
