    This may seem like a real nooby question, dont hammer me for it :)

    I have decided to get a Hostgator account to host a few websites i want to build, the question is am I best to build the sites with a wordpress theme or use the site builder and templates that Hostgator provides?

    i realise that in the ideal world i would build out a site using dreamweaver or some other pro app but i think that could be beyond my technical ability, what is my best route to build some decent looking sites?

    I would say WordPress because of its ease and the various plugins that can help a great deal.

    Yes I would go with that wordpress it's better for all your needs you will find some great plugins and really good themes for free. Also some really good prem themes here from all your freinds on BHW.

    And help with your Tech problems just ask :cool:

    Thanks for the feedback guys i will go with wordpress then. Where would you recommend getting the best templates from, I'm after business style ones, I will probably have the ususal: "Home - About - Products - Blog - Contact" main menu structure.
