Carrd is the most amazing web building platform I've seen to date- and trust me, I've tried everything. You start off with a blank page, or choose from expertly-designed templates, then you can build your own site with content LEGOs: drag text under an image, make a row of links across the top, or even add some of your own code.
When you discover control bars that let you break your site into pages, though, it's when everything changes: Carrd goes from letting you create business-card like pages to making full-blown websites for anything- home base for your app with dedicated support and contact pages, a sign-up form for an event that plugs names and comments into a Google sheet, ANYTHING (how do I make extra bold?)
Carrd is now my go-to tool for anything web-building related. I made a website for a friend and even made a few bucks off it. I'm also teaching an HTML class for my homeschool support group and there will be a whole lesson on Carrd!
I just want to say thanks to @ajlkn for my favorite website for websites, ever.
Found it to be extremely useful to create a profile site that I can easily share with people so they can find all my social media handles by just going here !
- Inexpensive ($8/mo, if you pay for a year... and you get your domain!), easy to use, always new features. I <3 it.I second Squarespace. IMO they do a great job of balancing ease of use with the ability to get in and customize things.
- Wordpress is the most flexible platform available and it's built to scale. With a good theme, you can create something beautiful quickly and easily and it won't limit you from growth in the future.Totally advocate this. The problem with using alternative solutions is if they decide to change their pricing structure or worse still they drop the service, all of that content is a hassle to move. Wordpress is not going anywhere, even if it just takes a little longer to set-up!Can't recommend WordPress enough. When it comes to WordPress, the major cloud service providers Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure are the most reliable and scalable options to host your site. Try Google Cloud with WordPress free with Cloud With Me.

I've been using Now for a while and it's one of the greatest Ops/Devops products I've ever used! It makes it simple to deploy an app not having to worry about it scaling up or down. Buying domains through the CLI is just a seamless, while it still allows for DNS record changes
