    Most likely, a simple CMS (Content Management System). There are millions of them out there. The first thing you need to know is, what Server Side Language does your host support? PHP, ASP, JSP, .NET, CGI-Perl, Ruby, Python, ect.?

    This is why I can't wait until Firefox 2.0 and it's rumored inline Spell Checking...

    Asking is an incredibly good bet.
    Disclaimer. (1) Whilst I will help you sometimes, if I feel like it, and my advice in relation to your actual question will be of good quality: my posts are to be taken with a pinch of salt. I will be sarcastic, deploy irony and include obscure cultural references for my own amusement without warning.
    (2) You will gain nothing from complaining, and if you try to argue with me then you will not win. No matter how noble your battle seems, I am still better than you, don't be an hero.

    Assuming you have a solid server-side language at your hands, a good place to start would be <http://opensourcecms.com>
