Wix for simple drag and drop. good templates, easy to use.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Wordpress is pretty straight forward. Need to watch a few youtube tutorials, but all out there

I always do my own websites but if you need help is easy can PM me. I have time to show you how.

1) Register Domain - pay money
2) Get Cpanel Hosting - pay money - emails included.
3) Install Wordpress - free
4) Use a theme - like One Page Express (modern sites are just one page with likes at top for scrolling) - free
5) Add SSL certificate so get green padlock and https:// - free but is a few steps to install - or you can pay when you pay the hosting fees
5) if you need backend like shopping cart then you can add later - free

If you follow the steps is mobile friendly

All you need to think about is the content.

you can look at https://www.a1mepsupply.com for an example - took around a week to do the content.. is not that good but it does the job for me .

download a pirate copy of dreamweaver. its pretty much what you see is what you get. i found it very easy to use.

you'll need a domain and hosting. what you pick will depend on expected traffic to your site

You have some specialized builders (like https://www.lodgify.com/ for holiday rentals).

Thank you - you are right - the free ones by let's encrypt are valid three months.

I was lazy to upload the new ones even after I received the email saying renew.

I'll do it now.
