My advice would be to steer well clear of GoDaddy.

What are you building the website for?

Wordpress is good, and free to use if you don't mind them putting some ads up. It's as easy to use as a bit of software like Word with a similar interface. You don't need to know any html (but can use it if you want) and can keep pages private after you publish them to make sure you get everything right before you expose them to the world.

wordpress.com/start


To be honest I would have thought you'd get better traffic from ebay listings (there are good online articles about how to write attractive ebay listings and avoid crucial mistakes) or if selling secondhand also consider using ebay in combination with local facebook groups (list on both and take down from ebay if it sells on facebook, and vice versa.

I hope that helps, all the best with it.

Agree with this, if you really need a proper eCommerce website then I'd suggest Wordpress as a starting point.

I don't know what you're selling but I imagine eBay, Amazon or if it's handmade Etsy might be something you could try first. My partner does this for her own company and for a good few years the sales from those significantly dwarfed those of their own website until they could put proper work into it.

Maintaining a website isn't as easy as it seems (coming from a full time front end developer).
