What is the easiest, simplest to use software for creating professional-grade Websites? I don't know any Java, etc etc, no knowledge of programming at all. I just need a "template" like software for creating professional Websites.

    WordPress :)

    If you are not a professional web developer, then get hosting and install WordPress.  Find a theme that you like, modify the CSS to customize it and then use plugins to replace any lack of coding knowledge.  There are free plugins (and some premium ones for really advanced functionality) for just about every common task that you used to need to know a programming language or hire a dev to accomplish.

    In order to use Wordpress you have to have slight knowledge about how to create a phpMyadmin database, and you'll also have to edit the config files. Creating a website with zero knowledge is a little sketchy.

    Not necessarily.  There are lots of ISPs that will now let you deploy WordPress on your account from the Control Panel and it also sets up the database and walks you through the config (such as it is).  No FTP, no shell commands, no MySQL installations.

    Thank you very much.  That helps a lot. I will look into Wordpress, and thanks to you guys as well.
