Hello Folks,

Could you please tell me the good application to develop the websites. Many people are suggesting me the Microsoft FrontPage is good. I am not good to develop the sites with that ?

Thanks for your valuable suggestions.

You're advertising "Live Support" in your posts, but you haven't any idea of how to make a web page?

I suspect you're just spamming to get your link out, but in case you aren't, FrontPage has been gone for years, replaced by Expression Web. Dreamweaver is also very popular. Both are fairly expensive. There are numerous free alternatives, and your host offers PageMason.

DreamWeaver owrks best. Since you don't really have to know any html or PHP to make a website. I thought Dreamweaver is free? It not now?

There might be a free demo or trial version, but the full program costs quite a bit. DW is well known, as is EW, but you should certainly give PageMason a try before spending any money.

From my personal experience and as a personal opinion Frontpage is a tool out of the 90's and I would not recommend it to anyone for website creation.

For basic websites Dreamweaver would be most probably the best choice. However indeed it is expensive and a more WYSIWYG solution would probably be Artisteer with which you can create basic HTML and PHP based websites but also templates for well known CMS. Due to the fact that you do not have any control over the code like you do with Dreamweaver makes Artisteer a bit limited in functionality but as a user of Artisteer I would recommend it as a possible solution.

However if you aim for more complex websites then you should consider using a CMS out of the large number we already offer through the Softaculous suite.

I have been using FrontPage for 15 years but I am now looking to make the switch to WordPress. The learning curve to get set up with FrontPage is gonna be about the same as with WordPress so I would definitely use WordPress . There's lots of tutorials on WordPress and you will be speaking the same "language" as everyone else. FrontPage is very very limited. For example it doesn't support Flash.  FrontPage's guestbook is highly vulnerable to SQL injection by hackers.  No CSS with FrontPage, etc, etc.

If you need to do sophisticated business sites then Joomla has greater capabilities. For example if you need a site that allows members to join with certain privileges then Joomla is the way to go.

Keep in mind that FrontPage/Expression Web, Dreamweaver, and Page Mason are completely different animals than Wordpress, Joomla, or Drupal. The first group are WYSIWYG page editors. You lay out a static HTML page by drawing it. The second group are (in increasing order of complexity and capability) content management systems. Both have templates to guide you and pick up some of the labor, to make pages consistent, but they produce very different results. So, be careful about tossing around all these product names as though they do about the same thing -- they don't!

You got that right - just click the profile and see the (mostly)  one liner posts. But it's not fair to target this user alone - the SEO board is full of spammers.

I'd recommed CMS scripts. You can find a list on http://www.softaculous.com/softaculous/apps and you can always install them to test them out using Softaculous from your control panel.
