I made a few sites with Serif WebPlus when I first started. For a basic site I’d definitely recommend it as it’s really intuitive and there’s a great support forum.
I progressed to using WordPress due to WebPlus not handling responsive if I remember correctly. But I definitely miss the simple drag ‘n drop approach. WordPress is great but I definitely think it’s a steep learning curve for a beginner. So many options, stuff to consider etc.
I’ve been experimenting with Adobe Muse a little recently. Looks promising.
