I need to find a host with an online site builder that can create pages that do not appear in main menu. (I think they call thisa atier 3? page)
Soholaunch does this in it's demo, but I am having trouble getting soho to work with my current host. The online site builder is the most important thing for me right now as I need to get my site up and running. I will learn on frontpage or something like that at a later time.
Frontpage aint to much of a bad product for newbies i have allot of clients who use it, frontpage extensions can be a pain though at times.

not sure how to explain. On most online sitebuilders I have found, when you create a new page, it automatically appears in the main menu(usually down the left side of the screen) I would like to be able to create pages that will not show up in the main menu, so that I may place links to them in individual pages.
Example. If I create a page called sharks in the main menu, I would like my clients to be able to click on that shark page and then on that page have links or buttons to pages on hammerhead sharks, great white sharks, etc.
Yeah if you're going to do custom stuff like that you will probably be better off with FrontPage.
I wouldn't pay too much attention to the FP bashing you'll see. most of it is lack of knowledge. There are some reasons that you woulnd't want to use it but for someone new with limited knowledge it's the fastest way to do it.
What I would recommend though, is not getting FrontPage itself, but get it's new big brother Microsoft Expression Web. Which can be found here.
Now, if you decide you want a site that's editable online and uses adatabase which acts more like a CMS. you may want to find a provider that offers Sharepoint services which is a great system and can be found here. If that's the case don't get Expression Web, you'll want the Sharepoint Designer which is built specifically for .net stuff using SQL backend.
For the most generic, just 'build a site' use Expression Web, if you want a detailed scaleable database driven site, use SharePoint Designer.
All that being said, a sitebuilder can work. I'd search for Plesk SiteBuilder 3.0 myself. You can decide what pages to include in your menus, and there are over 500 site templates. You can also log back in at a later time and update your live site with the sitebuilder. Good stuff.
