I'm researching Do it yourself websites for a friend who has a business.  I have web design experience (don't do it anymore) and what I'm asking is your opinions on the best sites for do it yourself webdesign.  I've done some research, but was hoping for user opinions that have actually used them.  I need a site that after I set it up he can manage.  FYI, not web.com too expensive.  

Thanks

I've been happy using a 1&1 hosted site with a WordPress front-end. Management is easy and WP is very user-friendly (and adaptable to nearly any business/application.)  Wix is a good place to start but, as Juan said above, the site has to be hosted with them.

hosting with the company is not an issue.  I looked at Wix and not that easy to get detailed info.  Mostly startup cost.  I'll look at Squarespace.
