    You could consider building your site with WordPress and getting a free template for it.

    What is the website for? Are you creating an affiliate site or a business website?

    You can use any free CMS: drupal, Joomla or DNN and more. Wordpress is more about picking and choosing between designed themes, but there are some themes that have more options than others. Like the Atahualpa theme have more than a couple of hundred options which make it very easy to change the design almost however you want without really knowing anything about coding languages.

    if you are looking for easy, then I really liked concrete5 ... if you are looking to do a little more dirty work, then ModX is awesome!

    But if you decide to design by your self, you can use dreamweaver for easier designing. It is a software that is available online for free.

    He asked for a program to DESIGN website, not to create one, and obviously the best free design program is: GIMP and you can download it at GIMP.org for coding I use Sublime Text 2, and coding in this program is just pleasure :)

    ts sound like you want to custom make a website, which is require design and programming skill. For those without technical knowledge, it is advise to use ready made platform, e.g. webly, wix, wordpress, blogger.

    If you want to create a eCommerce website, Magento is the excellent programme and for blog site, Wordpress is good. Both are free open source platforms.
