My host is ipage, they have excellent technical support.

I chose to use wordpress to build my site though. It took a while but I fanally got to the point where the basic layout of the site is close to what I want and I am now working on a password protected part of the site for the retailers I work with that will allow them to choose a basic design then input the options they want on a form. It is not exactly what I want but the template and all the plugins I am using were free and when I am done it will at least do the minimum I need it to. I also have a small store on one of my pages that I set up using google checkput. As has been mentioned, many wordpress templates are very customizeable so you can use wordpress for pretty much any type of site you want.

Several weeks ago, I had spent many hours trying to build my site and was not getting anywhere. So I got a friend to agree to take a look and help me out. He was too busy to get to it right away though so after a few days, I went back and tried to change a couple things. That time, everything went really smooth and I was able to find all the info right away in the wordpress codex to make the changes I wanted.

Point is, sometimes if you hit a wall, it seems it is better to take a few days off from the project. When you go back, it might not be as complicated as it initially appeared.
