I used Microsoft Front page to create www.goldentales.ca
Nothing fancy but, if you get into it, creating links to navigate from anywhere in the site, you get into hundreds of cross-connections
Essentially, you want each page to be able to download in probably 30 seconds or less (our photo blog page is way over that) and be able to navigate to any page, including the index page, from any other page.
Microsoft Front Page has its detractors. I can't say I'm against it since it's the only thing I used and I'm not particularly computer literate.
So . . . the good news for you about Front Page is that I don't really know much at all about computers but I created a website with its own domain name . . . . and it gets messages on its guestbook from around the world.
