Want a quick personal homepage? Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) may already be providing a pakcage that include free web-hosting with free tools for managing your webpages. There are also free web-hosters like Yahoo! Geocities.
Using a paid-for hosting service? Your company may already be providing 3-click installs to many free/open-source web software.
So unless you think you are a hard-core IT professional, stop writing your own HTML, PHP script, etc. Many open-source packages have already written PHP, HTML, etc. that took a long time to develop and test.
