In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to build your own website for free using my approach which is very easy and takes less than a minute to do. Anyone can do this, no matter what your experience on the subject.
I’d like to point out before I go any further that the traditional way of making websites can be very confusing as well as expensive, especially for beginners. Here are some of the most common methods & issues with them:
1) You can buy a domain/hosting through places like Godaddy.com & Namecheap.com. A domain name is basically how you name your website. You have to buy the name first to own it. As for hosting, it’s basically a service that allows your website to appear on the internet. You can’t have a domain without hosting, and vice versa.
Domain names will usually run you about $10 a year (sometimes more) while hosting can cost $1-$10 a month. Not very expensive yes, but for newcomers, the set up of the website is where the problem/s come into play. This kind of stuff can have a long learning curve.
2) You can actually get free sites/blogs from other places. They have their pros. But at the same time they do have downsides and usually lure people in who are uneducated on the subject to use their service whereas the other alternatives basically own your site. It’s always recommended to have 100% control of your website.
3) You can hire someone to build a website for you. This is the method I least recommend. Usually web designers will charge you $100’s if not $1,000’s to for this kind of service. And the truth is you can do everything they do on your own (as you’ll find here), without having to pay such outrageous prices and get the same if not better results.
There are more ways but I personally prefer my method. Why? Because it costs nothing. You can have a website up and running (domain & hosting included) in under a minute and you can avoid all the other unnecessary red tape & headaches those other methods cause. Now that we got that out of the way, let’s get down to business 🙂
Here’s how I build my own websites:
I use a free website builder program called Site Rubix. This program lets you make 2 websites through it. To date, this is the best and easiest program I’ve ever used. The websites SiteRubix makes rank and function just as well if not better than paid ones.
It utilizes WordPress, the most popular website platform in the world. WordPress websites are search engine friendly, easy to work with and the ability to customize them in your own image is limitless. Usually you’d have to manually install WordPress to a website, but with SiteRubix, it’s already there.
In a nutshell, SiteRubix basically takes away most of the hassles involved in building websites, many of which I mentioned above. It really comes down to 4 steps:
- Name your website.
- Just give it a title.
- Choose a theme for it. Themes are ways your website can look once it’s up and running.
- Hit the build button and you’re done.
Here is a video showing exactly how it works:
If you take the instructions out of the equation, this process takes less than a minute to do 🙂
Note: This website creation process has become even easier!
All you have to do is just enter the name you want for your website below. If it’s available, click the blue button: Build it now. From there the process is simple and very fast. Try it out:
Benefits of using Site Rubix:
- It’s completely free.
- Includes hosting.
- You get 2 websites.
- The site/s you create work/rank just as well as paid ones.
- Includes training on how to monetize your site.
- Ridiculously simple to use.
- Takes less than a minute to create a website.
The only thing you need to do is sign up to SiteRubix. The good news is that there’s no personal info needed. Just your full name, email, choose a username/password, and you’re ready to go. After your site is built, you will automatically be given a link to it as well as the administrator area where you’ll be able to edit and change anything you want.
Looking to the future: Do you have a plan in mind with your website?
- If you do, feel free to utilize SiteRubix anyway you wish.
- If you have a hobby, business idea in mind, you can certainly utilize this program for your endeavors! If you need help with starting an online business, the site rubix program comes with free training on this (video above explains).
- If you don’t have any idea in mind, just want to experiment or would like to know how to monetize off your website/s, that’s ok too. Here’s why:
- Signing up with Site Rubix will also give you free access to Wealthy Affiliate which is a website that teaches you the A-Z of online marketing and making successful websites. This place is actually the original creator of the SiteRubix program. I used their program to make money off the sites I made there.
- Once you create your first website, you’ll also get access to training from this place and I can actually help you out there. If you decide to try the training, please do me 1 favor: Complete your account setup. It will better help me understand what your goals are and I will personally be able to help you achieve them there.
I recommend utilizing the 2 free websites with the training to make the most out of SiteRubix. But that’s my personal recommendation. Whether or not you decide to try out the training, the website/s you make are completely yours either way. At the very least, I recommend trying to build your own website at least once with this program just to see how it works and what you can do with it. It really is simple.
