Various types

It depends on a certain type of project and also personal freelancer skills. Well-experienced and professional ones make custom-designed sites, it's a rather complicates work with many tools and pure php because such sites are usually made from total scratch. You'll need to learn much before achieving such level of work.
Newbies and many other freelancers often make sites with the help of such platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Wix, Weebly and so on, they're very easy in using and are good for making simple websites and getting experience in your
sphere. Also various web tamplates like wordpress skin are often used in this case too, it's the simpliest tool for making a nice web design. I recommend yoy to register on special freelance sites and look through portfolios of professionals, also clients' orders there, in such way you'll know usual prices and how to present your skills. As I remember from my own experience well-made portfolio is very important for improving your rating, also test tasks are popular before starting the
serious work. But always be careful with possible scam clients.
