Now, I want to build a own website. Tired of using those free service and get stuck in halfway! Gonna build a website for business purpose. What things to consider about? Do I need to be an expert in writing php scripts?
You can get a php developer and make it, be clear with your output so that you may feel easy top continue..
My suggestion wolud be any of the Below 3 CMS's
#2 Drupal (ecommerce modules) and also try with drupal gardens
u can work with all these without much knowledge of Php and html
If you are Australian, the government has a MYOB deal that is pretty decent. Its something to look into if you live there.
I would recomment drupal and adding the ubercart eCommerce module.
You don't need PHP scripting if you only wish to showcase your company on your website..
ie, if you just want to show the visitors what your products and services are, like Management, or IT solutions etc... then you only need to know how to use Dreamweaver or similar software... Some basic concept of photoshop too!
Dreamweaver is very easy, and a simple CSS script website template can be edited via dreamweaver + photoshop and created into a very nice website.
If you're looking for ecommerce, then I have no idea of what's to be done in that case...
If you want to start that route, then I would advise you to start out using notepad ++ or Aptana Studio 3, then slowing progress to advance IDE like Adobe Dreamweaver etc.
For a simple website, you could use wordpress + a business template. You don't need to learn to write php code. There are a lot of tutorials on how to use wordpress.
