I am working on a project and I am writing a long post of text online. It is an only text design with a few photos or videos that I place in sections of the writing either with embedding or linking to a folder I am hosting.
I bought the domain, but I am unsure what the best web design service would be for me.
Should I use Wix or is there someone better to use?
My content may be seen as controversial and I am expecting DDoS attacks to occur. Is there any provider that can prevent this for my website?
Any help in pointing me in the right direction is appreciated. Thank you!

If the cost and censorship of WP/Wix/SquareSpc are an issue I might recommend Git-Hub pages - connect the domain to GH and run a jekyll site which will give you a handy local-side blog set up for a static solution. You would have to write your posts in a Mark-down editor though.

All of this is very easy you just need to sign up to GH, download the repo's for Jekyll (go to their website and read 'how to') and then play around with it.

In terms of DDOS this is generally a non-issue with solutions like Squarespace etc as they have dedicated teams that offset and mitigate the attack. Security wise you'll be running a static website too - so there's no risk of DB exploitation.

you don't wanna learn how to code your own website?

its all good if you don't but if you take the time to learn it its very rewarding and it allows you to display your content the way you envisioned it.

This but use Hugo instead of Jekyll.

As your site grows, so to do your Jekyll build times. Meanwhile, with Hugo, your build times are like 0.5s with 2,000+ pages.

It's a bit trickier to learn, and the docs are hard to understand, but in the end it will be better on your wallet.

Most of the website owners build their websites but they forget to optimize websites by following SEO techniques. Before approaching a web design service one should know the initial tactics to make it better. So here I would suggest you to take a look at this worthy article which is based on Responsive Website Design.

Sorry for the delay! Did you find what you were looking for? You know, nowadays, it is easier to build your own website, as almost everything is offered by the Internet. I was looking for the best website builder for sports clubs and I needed to try some of them, in order to find the best one. Also, I have noticed that not everyone finds it easy to use a particular website builder, so it is better to try some of them on your own and make your own conclusions.
