Creating a static website (Part 1)

In order to host a website on, first I need to build a static page. It seems to me that there are 3 main stages to getting a website up and running.

  1. Buying a domain
  2. Setting up a static webpage
  3. Hosting

I looked at a few of the off the shelf CMS tools such as WordPress and Drupal, but I wanted to see whether I could go a bit deeper and try and make life a bit more complicated for myself.

It will be good to try and keep costs as low as possible, which is why I don’t particularly really want to spend lots of money on a WordPress solution that I might not end up using extensively.

I have come across this website generator called Cactus [GitHub link] although it is getting a bit late and I don’t want to work much longer on this.
