    If you want a drag-and-drop editor, Weebly isn't bad. Making the website yourself is a hell of a lot more fun though.

    The fun part is learning how. Have a look at one of codecademy's HTML/CSS courses. Sites made with drag-and-drop editors look fairly invariably tacky, and (like any business) they're primarily concerned in making money, through adverts on your site or premium-only features.

    wix.com is good I like that site, but it does give you lots of ads unless you pay, so that may be an issue
