Website coding for small business has evolved from line by line programming to easy to use programs that make it easy to produce custom crafted websites.
Before Windows and Apple Operating Systems, computers used DOS (Short for Disk Operating System). The DOS gave you a prompt, and then you had to type in a written code to start a program. You had to know the correct format for typed commands.
Windows and Apple Operating Systems have made it much easier to initiate those commands. Instead of line by line typed commands you can simply click on an icon or menu item to accomplish your objective.
It's the same with Website Design Systems.
Original coding was done using line by line commands. Later, Dreamweaver created a program that would let you see the actual results of your line by line programming. That was a big step forward and helped you code more easily, but you still need to do the line by line programming..
See this video for a sample of how hard it used to be (Great if you can’t sleep!)
If you don't need line by line programming, which most small-business owners don't need, then you have several other options. You can use one of the many Plug and Play Website Design Services. These low-cost solutions give you templates with blanks to fill in with your custom information. For many companies, this may be sufficient. Wordpress is another Plug and Play type of Design Service, which is quite popular and gives you more capability and options. With all the many plugins available this is a great choice for many small businesses.
The Option that I promote gives you the simplicity of the basic Plug and Play sites and enables you to plug in as many widgets as you want while giving you TOTAL freedom over all the design elementsand the ability to plug in as many widgets as you want. It's easy to insert photo galleries and videos and any type of web forms. You can create truly Responsive Websites or can create custom formats for different desktop and mobile devices to give you total control over your look and presentation. You can also import all the content from an existing website which saves you a lot of time as you customize it to work with the new program.
This program also includes photo-editing tools and a wide variety of design elements that you can customize and mix and match.

There is, however, a learning curve that can be challenging..
