It depends on the purpose for which such a platform will be developed - this functionality may be quite enough. But to use various software like Adobe Dreamweaver is a very dubious idea for normal development. If this is not yours, then such a plan should be entrusted to professionals by type of https://do-it-solutions.com/web-development/ or freelancers.

When we first started KiasuParents.com, it was on Joomla. Quite easy to DIY. But we quickly ran into scalability problems as the site grew. We went over to Drupal, and finally WordPress. But I still kind of prefer Drupal for its scalability, athough much has been done to WordPress to improve its appeal.

I'm setting up a simple website for one of my workplaces - any recommendations for where to register the domain? Should I register with wordpress if I plan to use one of their templates or is it better to get a local company? Also is there any redress if a third-party ran off with a company's original domain details?

Here are some possible things for you to do:
1. Choose a hosting site. I assume that you are trying to build a public website. We started on a US Site called Siteground which provides remote server access for about $20 a year. When the community grew we set up a SG site costs us about $2K a month.
2. Buy a domain name. That can be reserved using any DNS provider. We used GoDaddy.
3. Your hosting provider can either be full or bare metal. Some, like Wordpress, provides that software that allows you to set up the site. Others require you to do development before the site can run.

Regardless, you need to set up a team minimally comprising 2 persons: someone good with the technical details and someone good with the business. It is unlikely that the same person has both skills,

While I use Divi, I see the value and benefit of using Elementor Pro.
However, if you are not building a pro or commercial website, the extra $ paid for the 'pro' would not be worth it.

I'm using the free version. it's really good enough for a simple & nice looking website, and easy for beginners to get into.

Courses are required. With an abundance of free information, it is difficult to understand what is really important. It would be better if at first you will be helped by a specialist. Use HTML5 seems to me a more promising option. You may see https://www.webawards.top/nominations/ to see examples of sites that you will have to do, and I hope you can do it
