What is the best tool/platform/program to use for building websites from scratch? [I Design Websites]

What is the best platform/program to use to build a website from scratch nowadays? I'm helping a friend make one. I made one YEARS ago in class, but so much has changed. Any advice? Books or other sites to check out?

Yes, I've been googling my eyes out. 馃ぃ馃槀馃槀

Thanks in advance!

The best way to build a website from scratch is to use a good text editor and code it by hand.

That may be too much for what you want to do.

A good option is to use WordPress, especially hosting at It's easy and it's cheap, especially if you want a blog-like site.

If you want something other than that, it's a path into Perdition, but that's a different issue.

@DunningKruger Thank you.
I use WordPress with Divi Builder from Elegant Themes.

@DunningKruger Thank you. I mentioned Wix to her, but she has some reservations about that as well. Thank you again so much!

@sweetiepoo If you don't mind jumping into the deep end, I recommend ExpressionEngine. It is my preferred website system, but it has a learning curve that is not for the faint of heart and hefty hosting requirements. That being said, once you get over the hump, it is by far the best solution I've ever used.

Thank you. I will look into it.
