I need to set up a website and need something quick and easy enough for someone who is technologically challenged. Any advice? if anyone has any other suggestions I'd be very grateful :)
Starting a website
You should tell us where you are as there can be hassles with paying out of country in some cases.
You might find the blogging sites sufficient for your needs, or may be a facebook page for the group/business. Those are free.
What are you trying to accomplish with your website? Is it a blog, a business site, a personal site, a large informational site such as this, forums and many contributors? You end product will help determine what your needs are. Wordpress is great if you are doing a blog or very simple website, but even then you have a choice between 2 different Wordpress systems, the one they host at wordpress.com or the much more robust Wordpress that you drop into your site hosted on another server. Also from what I hear, Squarespace is a really good tool for building websites that aren't terribly complicated, but more complicated than blogs or personal sites.
