Learn me about web hosting

Saying F U to the corporate world and starting a consulting company. Looking at setting up a website and I am illiterate when it comes to that. Nothing fancy just a few pages talking about who we are and what we do, some pricing, blog section and a contact me page and able to expand as time goes on however it has to look nice and professional, no geocities here. I did some searching on squarespace and saw there are a ton of competitors in this space, what has the PBB had good luck with? Not going with some neighbor kid who needs a school final project in exchange for a case of Busch latte here, but also dont need to spend a shitload and have something overkill.

Easy is go get a host account at Bluehost and set up a Wordpress site but there is a small learning curve.

You can also use Squarespace, its even easier to build a site there if you don't know what you are doing.

Yea I looked that up and saw all the alternatives to squarespace, just wondering which ones of those are worth taking a look at. I'll check out wordpress.
I have a family member who can HTML code that will be helping me out when I get in a bind however they are busy as shit and cant hold my hand.

You dont need any HTML with wordpress. Its a website package with tons of add ons. I think like 80% of the internet runs off of it and any host that I run across has it ready to install at the click of a button.

One of my company websites runs off of squarespace (They did that before I showed up) and I was going to dump it but it seems to be running fine so I'm leaving it for now.
