The Foundation Of An Online Presence Is A Website

Your website is the foundation of any online presence, and the place for your visitors to browse and to read interesting and relevant content. A website can be likened to a piece of real estate that you own online. So, it makes sense that you drive the process of building out your website or online real-estate. If you have never attempted to have a go at this kind of thing before, there is nothing to be worried about – if you can follow instructions then you will be fine and have a website in no time.

Easy As One, Two, Three

Believe it or not, you can create your own website in under 30 seconds whether your website is for business or otherwise! You are not required to have any experience or prior knowledge to be able to build a website. You will want a domain name for your website – a name that you come up with. All this is included at Wealthy Affiliate and there is no need to go looking for parts all over the internet – it's all in the one place and it's free to get started. Click the following image to take you there.

Deciding On A Domain Name

Here is an overview that walks you through the quick process of creating a website in Wealthy Affiliate.

It can literally take 30 seconds to create and build a fully live and functional, WordPress website.

Starter Members get 2 Free Websites (on .siterubix.com domain)

Premium Members get 50 Websites (25 free .siterubix.comon; 25 on your OWN Domains)

Once you have you a domain name then you are ready to build the website. The following video will show you all of the steps required. But if you are ready now and want to get started right away, then go here to register.

Create A Website For Business, Or Other Reason

If you are requiring a website for business, charity or other reason, then a low-cost option is probably the ideal but ensure that you are also getting a great hosting platform and a nice safe and secure place for your website to live.  Some may think that unless you spend thousands of dollars on all the bells and whistles on your website, then it's not going to appeal to your visitors. This is completely false! It's relevant content that will appeal to your visitors.

Hosting your brand new website

Hosting is a very very important function required to keep your website healthy and ticking over nicely and safe from harm. Imagine that you have just acquired a brand new Ferrari! Now you want to have it somewhere safe to live! You are not going to want to leave your brand new Ferrari parked outside on the street and in the open at night now are you? Imagine the unwanted interest it would attract – who knows what would happen to it.

$5 a month to host your website

Well, hosting your website is just the same. If you are paying $5 monthly to a hosting company, then that will be like having your Ferrari parked on the street with the keys left inside. So don't be fooled into cheap hosting services like this, because the likelihood that this service will protect your website from attack for this price is a total myth! A safe hosting service would cost you a little more than $5 a month, but wouldn't you pay a little more knowing it was protected by high security around the clock? See here for more on what a good website hosting service should provide. 

Having a website you built yourself

Whether it be for business, charity or other reason, building your own website can be very satisfying. So having the right tools, help, and support will ensure that you have a great experience.

  1. Rina, I have done a lot of research into how much it costs to build a website, and you can end up spending $100’s or even $1,000’s! That is what makes the SiteRubix platform such a great deal. Not only can you build it yourself for free (no hosting costs, domain purchases, maintenance costs, etc.), but you don’t really need any technical knowledge. And since you also get access to the Wealthy Affiliate community, the knowledge you do need is available to you, also free. It’s truly a no-brainer.

  2. Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for laying it all out like this. I’ve been waiting to build a website for my business for a long time now but I kept putting it off because in my mind I saw it as a long, drawn out and complicated thing to do.

    You’ve opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities and for that I’m eternally grateful! Am I right in thinking that with SiteRubix the domain and hosting are included? Are there are other costs I need to keep in mind like paying for website themes?

    Thanks again!

    1. Hi Simon, I’m so glad you called by! Thank you also for the comments and questions. 

      In the past, the only way to build a website was to use coding. But those days are long gone. Today we have WordPress among others and all of the website building tools make it ‘child’s play’. 

      To answer your questions…the Siterubix in the ‘Getting Started’ training includes hosting and domain names for 2 websites and website themes, and it’s all free. 

      I wish you every success with your business.

      Regards 🙂

  3. Rina,

    Your post is really helpful and I was super excited to learn that I could build my first website in such a short amount of time. It really was as easy as you stated. I’ve got a lot of content to put up now, but the foundation of the site is something I am really happy with.

    I agree with Andy that building a site can sometimes cost a lot of money and I also agree that hosting can be super expensive on a monthly basis to get the kind of security you need to protect your Ferrari. (And I love that analogy, by the way.)

    Thanks for the helpful post.

    1. Thank you Teresa. I’m glad to hear you are happy with the foundation of your website and it’s now ready for the content. I wish you every success.

      Regards 🙂

    1. Thank you Phil. I appreciate you taking time out to visit and leave your comments. I also wish you every success and all the best.

      Regards 🙂

  5. Would you be able to help me with something? I wonder about a lot of the up-sells I see with domain names. Is the domain privacy something that’s worth the extra $16/month? What would happen if I didn’t opt for the privacy? Does wealthy affiliate offer privacy? I am looking to keep this a lean of a start up as possible.

    1. Hi Neil

      Thanks for stopping by. Domain name upsells are non-existent if you go through Wealthy Affiliate as the privacy feature is included in the price. However, that is not always the case with others i.e you will have to purchase it separately – click the following WA blog link to see a comparison chart. Without privacy protection, you are open to having your private information released to the ‘world’. Hope this helps and I wish you every success.
