The beauty of developing with popular web frameworks like Django is that a lot of repetitious work has been done for you, so you can focus on building your site. It's also great to know that the core of what you're running has undergone the scrutiny of a large open-source community and should be less susceptible to large security holes.

Whether you're a developer or not, one thing that is not inherently simple is knowing how to get these web frameworks up and running outside of your own development or testing environment.
