Hello everyone,
I am looking for the best and cheapest tools to build my own website. I know this question has been asked before (and I read those threads), but I am looking for updated responses to the same question.
I want to advertise my services as a consultant.

Thank you.

  • Open source text editor.  I like Scite.
  • Open source FTP client.  I like FileZilla.
  • Open source browser. I like FireFox.
  • Open source image editor.  Gimp is very powerful ... Paint.Net more user-friendly.
Visual Web Developer Express is pretty good if you're on an ASP.Net host.  Also free.

Can you recommend another alternative to build my website. I don't want something free, but rather something that is easy to use (I am a beginner on this), but that produces a quality website.

Thank you.
