A website can do many things for you and can serve many purposes, but no matter what purpose you are trying to fulfil, your website will need a domain name, hosting plaltform, and a website builder. Normally, these all cost money, but today, I’m going to show you a website you can use to make a free website, including a free domain and hosting platform – Wealthy Affiliate. Let’s get started.
Step 1 – Creating An Account
So first, you will need to create a free account here. Fill in your name, email address, username and password to create your free account. Once you’re in, move on to step 2
Step 2 – Choosing Your Domain And Website Name
Once you’re in to your account, click on websites on the column on your left. Then click on Site Builder. From there, choose Free Domain. Now choose your domain name. Your domain name can be anything as long as it suits your website niche.
Step 3 – Creating Your Website
Finally, click on Build My Website and there you have it, your website is ready! You can customize your website by clicking on Websites > Site Manager and then go to your website and click Log in > Log in now. From here, you can customize your website to whatever you want it to look like. Do not that if you want to change your theme, you will have to upgrade to a premium account. You can see what a premium account lets you do here.
This second method is for those who wish to choose their domain name before creating their account. Simply enter the domain name of your choice and click Build it Now and you’re good to go!
What If I Don’t Want To Have The Siterubix Portion In My Domain?
If you do not want to have the siterubix portion in your domain name, you will have to purchase a domain name from sites that sell domain names such as GoDaddy and Namecheap. However, after buying those domains, you will still need to pay for domain hosting and then probably buy a course to learn how to build your website and start a successful blog. Instead, I would recommend Wealthy Affiliate premium membership which costs only $19 dollars for the first month and includes everything you need to start a successful blog, from a keyword research tool to a domain specific email. You can read my review on it here and read more about the premium membership here.
I hope by now you have created your free website and started your journey to a profitable blog and wish you all the best in your journey!
