You don't need HTML knowledge to build a website
With today's web design software, users can create an attractive site with little or no coding knowledge. Professionally designed templates can be enhanced with custom text and graphics, as well as features like photo-sharing plug-ins, RSS feeds and more.
Several of the web design software products we review are free, though some features (like video hosting) may cost money. The good news is that few of these extras are must-haves for a basic website, such as custom domain names, extra templates and tools for editing HTML code. Some web design software also offers hosting services, saving you the hassle of registering your domain name and finding a server to store your website.
We didn't find many recent comparative reviews of web design software. TopTenReviews.com has roundups of the best web design and blogging software. PC Advisor and About.com reviewers also give their picks of the best web design software. Reviews of individual web design programs are often for older versions of the software, though we did find some recent reviews at PCWorld.com and WebsiteToolTester.com as well.
