I basically have zero knowledge on how to design web pages. I bought a domain name through Google and tried to design a front page through Google apps. I hated it and found it hard to make it look the way I wanted.

I know how I want the front page to look and would like (if possible) to design it myself in order to save money. Is there software that will allow me to design the page the way I want? Is doing something like creating logins for a web age too advanced for someone like me who knows nothing?

Any advice or help is greatly appreciated!
