Before we start I just want to say that this video tutorial and images about using the website builder are those found in Wealthy Affiliate using the WordPress platform. There are other free website builders available using different platforms, but I chose to be involved with a platform without restrictions and limitations and other problems that I’ll not go into here for this post.

Wealthy Affiliate is a University that teaches you everything you need to know and keep you up to date with one package and has a community that also helps with active training and questions as well.

The free package is also available for as long as you like with a full 7-day access then resumes to the free package. To learn more about the difference packages click Free Website Building and Hosting.


Here is the Video Portion!

Create a website in under 30 seconds

4 steps with a Website Builder!


To start this process, all you need to do is sign up for your free membership at Wealthy Affiliate first. Then you’ll be able to start the four steps to create one of the two free websites from the free package you will receive.


Step#1       Your Domain

If you are unfamiliar with the term Domain, then check out What Is A Domain Name And How To.

Once you are signed up, you can log in to your account and in the left column, click the Site Rubix menu then the Site Builder to build your website.

Write down a couple of domain names you like!

Step 1 shows two options:

  1. A Free Website
  2. On a Domain I Own

You will want to click on the first choice of A Free Website.
The second option is better to choose a domain name when you understand What is a Keyword Research, first before selecting a domain name.

Step#3       Choose a Theme

Step 3 is all about picking out a theme for how you want your website to look.

The key thing to remember here is, you can change the look of your site by picking out another theme at a later date if you decide you’re not happy with the one you started with at any time.

This is UNBELIEVABLY fast and easy. I have honestly never seen a builder with such simple method of building a site from scratch.

Takes away all the need of coding, scripting or anthing like that. SiteRubix makes it easy to create, WordPress makes it easy to develop.

It is integrated with WA though, so I’m interested to hear a more in-depth review of it. Great post and looking forward for your next one!

    To check out more about what Wealthy Affiliate has to offer you can check out the link to Free Website Building and Hosting.

    From checking out the link, you’ll learn all about the two packages that WA has to offer. The Free and Premium package are the only two, and they cover all the basis without having to deal with up sales as you get bomb barded with in other sites trying to do a similar service.

    You can get and learn everything you need at Wealthy Affiliate and with the community. Other places tend to cost a lot more with upsells and lack the knowledge to be truly successful online.

Thanks for this I have always been so nervous to make a website as I didn’t even know where to start.

Is WordPress the best place to go for website building as your screenshots and explanation make it look really easy.

With the starter membership do you recieve full training to make the website?


    June 7, 2016 at 9:56 am

    Compared to most of the other free website builders you’ll have more flexibility and better features and function to earn an income online with this WordPress platform.

    The website is created in the simple steps as shown and you get enough free lessons to create your website

It looks like this company, Wealthy Affiliate, actually teaches you how to do this? I’ve set up websites before, even free ones – but I can’t say I’ve ever seen any of those companies actually provide me with instructions like this. I mean, usually they just have you choose a domain name, category – then they give you a list of themes to choose from. Than wah-la! There’s your website. But then you’re on your own from there. I’m definitely going to check out Wealthy Affiliate – I’m a person who definitely needs more step-by-step instructions!


    June 28, 2016 at 1:02 am

    From a lot of the other sites out there offering website builders, what you mention Debra is so true for how they operate. That can work fine for some people but your right about having the extra training after the site gets created. Most people think that once you have a site, you’re ready to go, but that is just the beginning.

    Understanding SEO to get better ranking is another critical step along many to become truly successful online. You will find Wealthy Affiliate is an excellent place to be for learning all the extra steps that are required. WA will take you step by step at your pace so you can maximize your time for learning the way you need to learn and have the online presence you want.

Hi TSmithers,

You cannot get any faster then this! Your 4 steps are fast and simple. Anyone can do this. You explain the steps very well. I like that there is a community to support you as well. So often you are left alone with complex steps and language to navigate through but your article makes building a site so doable. I am sure many will find this to be the case. Thanks you.

    A lot of people are familiar with using website builders from other sites like Wix, Weebly, Squarespace and there are others. Most people are not aware of that you can have a website builder like the one Wealthy Affiliate uses for WordPress that has more flexibility, and they have a full package for training not just for the website builder but also what to do after you build your site.

    Having a site is great, but it means nothing if you do not know how to get it ranking with the search engines. Building the site is just the first step, and Wealthy Affiliate will also teach you the rest.

Your explanation on how to build a website on the Word Press platform without any prior knowledge is very to the point. The fact that at Wealthy Affiliate it does not cost any money up front to test it out is really a plus. Although without the additional training it would take a lot longer to monetize the website that you are creating, being a premium member while you are building up your website and learning how to drive traffic that will make the process go a lot faster. The community is second to none in Affiliate Marketing Training.


    June 28, 2016 at 1:06 am

    Your exactly right John about the free site is good, and you can get up and running but being a premium member will certainly speed your progress up as you have all the training and community at your fingertips.

    Without the premium membership, you still have your free site, but you must spend many countless hours deciphering through other websites for information that may work for you which does take a lot longer.

Very detailed and easy, since you included the step-by-step visuals with the screen shots you included Travis!

“…when I grow up, I want to be like you!”

No but seriously, this was so helpful to us readers whether experienced or newbies.

Keep them coming… I’m sooooo looking forward to your other posts as a result of this.

My best,


    July 17, 2016 at 12:41 pm

    Happy to hear you liked the post, Nerissa. It just goes to show how easy this can be when an old fellow like myself can get into creating an online presence with all this new technology and have fun with it.

Chosing a passion for your niche is important. Firstly, because it will make it easy for you when writing posts. Secondly though it is important for your domain name. If you have a domain name that clearly states what you are about then you will go far.

As my website is informational I went with a theme that portrayed this. The website builder gives you so much choice and you can create a website so easily.


    August 21, 2016 at 11:54 am

    It definitely, use to take some work in the past to create a site as you had to work with code to do everything. Nowadays it is so much easier with so many of the providers supplying website builders to make it all happen.

    Your right about the importance of choosing a niche you’re passionate about as that will make creating your posts that much easier for the people you want to help and for the money you’ll want to generate from your site.

Great tutorial – for someone like me who really can’t get my head round code, this makes building a website so easy.

I’ve recently joined Wealthy Affiliate and can echo your comments, they provide a great set oftutorials, and the community there is absolutely fantastic – you get answers to questions 24hrs a day and the speed at which I’ve developed my website it testament to the great support at WA.

Keep up the good work!

    Nice to hear you’re making out well with your site Mike. Like you when I discovered Wealthy Affiliate, I could see they had great value for everything they had to offer.

    I had used other providers, and after trying out Wealthy Affiliate, it was a no brainer to switch over to not only receive everything they had to offer that my previous provider did not provide or have in place but the over savings for what I get at Wealthy Affiliate was another great bonus.

Hello Travis,

Thanks for the easy walk-through. I can guarantee a lot of people will find this very helpful in creating their first website.

I will say, I have used SiteRubix many times in the past and there are literally no better website builders out there. The things that really set SiteRubix apart from the others is that you get FREE training and support with it.

With WordPress[dot]com for example (which is what I used when I first started building websites), it’s great because it’s free, but it’s not easy to get support or training without doing a lot of research which will eat up a huge chunk of time.

Thanks again for the easy walk-through, Travis. 🙂

    Hi, Ian and thanks for stopping by and writing up a comment. For most people just having access to a free website builder, is not enough. The majority of people looking to build a site with a free package need help with designing and creating the site they want to make. Too many of the other providers that offer a free site have too many things lacking for newcomers to be successful.

    Wealthy Affiliate gives people the best opportunity to make things happen by using the free package or especially when you go premium to have full access. Either way, you can not go wrong with Wealthy Affiliate.
