  1. Site Definition. - SharePoint 2010 (Site Definition project type in VS2010) - SharePoint 2007 (SharePoint Solution Generator create Site Definition & also WSPBuider, VSEWss1.3)
  2. Site Provisioning (Programmatically) - You can create easily Site Template using this way because all controls in your hand (in your code). Add SPList, Delete SPList, Provision Web Part etc.
  3. Site Template - For SharePoint 2010, Site Setting > Save as Site Template. Save as .WSP file in Solution Gallery. - For SharePoint 2007, Site Setting > Save as Site Template OR type /_layouts/Savetmpl.aspx in your web url. Save as .STP file in Solution Gallery.

You can create Web Template Feature in Sandbox Solution & give scope Site for this feature.

Column Level Security in SharePoint

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 support a rich security model that allows administrators to control access to sites and content by assigning permissions to users and groups for a specific securable object (such as site, list, library, folder and even an individual document or item).

Currently, SharePoint does not provide out of the box support for securing columns or views.
Here there is good article for securing the columns in SharePoint.

Its working because I used in SPList & Discussion Board.
But there is limitation for lookup field (255 characters) so you can secure item's fields value up to 255 char.
