I'm very new to this and just got a domain yesterday as I've been postponing making a portfolio website for ages. I got this website builder trial for free the next month, but I don't really like it or understand it as it feels really limited (only 7 themes), and i have no idea how to make it into a portfolio. It just looks too complicated and too simple at once. So, i'd like to use or buy a template of my own and apply it to the design, is that possible? How do I avoid going through this website builder? And how do I avoid paying for it after the free month passes, as I don't need it?
Thank you very much and I hope to resolve this as jumping into this head in is very confusing!
