How to Create a Website without Knowing HTML?

Can we create a website with its own hosting, without complicate installation procedure as with Wordpress, without editing HTML or CSS or PHP programming?

Several sites offer free templates and reusable kits.

One way to design a site without dealing with the CSS code is to use a theme for Wordpress under GPL license - all those listed on the Wordpress.org site are so - and replace the SQL calls by text. The Cryonie theme offered by Scriptol.com shows how a Wordpress theme can be written as well as a static page.

But if you want not to deal with HTML too, then the solution is to have recourse to a site generator as offered by many hosts, here is a short list ...
