Well, it depends on what type of website you want. For example, you need to determine if you want to build an eCommerce website or you want to get some ordinary site. In any case, there are so many platforms. For example, you got WordPress with you to build a site, however, you need some developmental skills too.
And if you want to get your own eCommerce website then you should be trying Free eCommerce website software such as Tibolli.NET or Open Cart.
To get things done in Open Cart, you are required to possess technical skills. Whereas for the later one, you just need an active internet connection and a laptop as their drag and drop interface let you do things easily.
