Today I will show you how to create your own website for free.
The cool thing about it is that it’s never been easier in today’s high tech world. It’s even better when you have free support to guide you along the way.
You can actually create your own free website in less than a minute. I’ll show you how in a moment.
I’ll also introduce you to a free program that will guide you step-by-step as you begin creating your new site.
OK, let’s get started and you’ll have your free website up in just a few clicks.
How to Create Your Own Website For Free:
To make your site, just put in whatever name you want to call your website in the Website Builder shown below.
If your site name is available, click the “Build It Now” button and you will be walked through a simple 4 step process to get your website up and running.
I did a Siterubix website this morning and I had my site up and running in less than a minute.
First things first, check and see if your site name is available.
Once you have verified that your site name is available, hit the “Build it Now” button and you will be taken to the Siterubix webpage that looks like this.
You’ll then hit the blue tab (like the one above) that says “Build My Free Website!”, and you’ll be taken to a screen that’s looks like this below.
You’ll want to click the tab that says “A Free Website” in Step 1, and in Step 2, your domain name that you already selected will be positioned in the Siterubix box as shown above.
Mine says: Date Colombian Women.
Pick a Theme for Your Website:
Then you will choose a WordPress theme that you can use for your website.
When I made my website earlier, I just went to the top 5 WordPress Themes that says “Favs (5)” and chose a nice looking high speed theme.
This is probably the only step that can potentially take a little time with over 1,000’s of themes to choose.
Everyone likes to look through the different themes to tweak the look of their website.
Go ahead and play around with it, have fun. If you don’t like your theme, no worries.
You can always change it at a latter date if you like.
I found a nice looking theme (the blue one above on the left side called FIGERO) and then went to the final section shown below and hit “I’m Ready, Build My Website Now!”
Within a few seconds I received confirmation that my site was fully built. All essential plugins and security features installed, along with a confirmation that looked like this…
Once I received confirmation that my free site was built, I logged into the administration section, activated my plugins, and put up 2 pages of website content.

Websites Need Content Fueled from Keyword Research:
As you may have noticed by now, I named my website “Date Colombian Women”.
If it seems strange there’s a little background story to it.
I have spent the last 5 years living part time in Colombia, South America. I wrote up an article for men that were interested in dating Colombian women.
The site is just a simple 2 page site and contains some practical advise for foreign men who are coming to Colombia to date women.
The site also functions as a small affiliate site that is promoting a dating service called Colombian Cupid. They offer 75% commissions for anyone who signs up to this dating site.
I personally know and have used the site, and give it my full recommendation. I used the keyword phrase Date Colombian Women because this is a low competition keyword phrase.
Because it’s a low competition phrase, it will be relatively easy to rank my site. I found the stats on this keyword phrase in a few minutes using the keyword tool called Jaaxy.
Some quick info about this screenshot of the Jaaxy results for my keyword phrase of Date Colombian Women.
- Avg is 1210 people per month are searching this keyword term.
- Traffic means that if you’re on page one in Google, you’ll recieve 206 visitors to your site/mo.
- QSR means the number of competing websites competing for this keyword phrase.
- KQI is an indicator if it’s a good keyword phrase. Green is Good.
- SEO is a measure of how competitive and relevant this keyword phrase is in today’s market.
- Domains – Jaaxy just shows me if these domain names are available for this keyword phrase.
I wrote a thorough article and incorporated some good visual images.
So it shouldn’t take too long to get my site ranked and in front of people.
Why Content is Critical for Websites?
If you want to build a website for fun, that’s great, have at it.
But if you want to get your website in front of people who might want to visit your website; you need to learn about keywords and writing content.
Once you do that, it’s not hard to get you website to rank in search engines like Google, you need to write content.
You also need to understand keyword research, but one step at a time.
Want to Make Money from a Free Website:
Honestly, if you’re going to build a website to make money, we’re talking about an online business.
I’d never recommend anyone have a free website with a free domain name. It just wouldn’t be professional and a domain name costs around $15/year.
But you can totally do it.
Find an affiliate program, and then create a website with some content to promote that program. It doesn’t have to be anything super fancy!
Now you have the platform to make sites, the next step is to find an affiliate program and write content.

I have been looking into site rubix and wealthy affiliate. I am curious if you have been with them both and which you prefer. Does one seem to provide more than the other? I see that you can probably get away with doing both for free. It appears that the premium membership with Wealthy Affiliate is the better way to go? Any experience with this?
Yeah, Wealthy Affiliate is the creators of Site Rubix.
So when you get a premium membership to WA, you’ve got complete access to Site Rubix.
This is one of the major factors that makes me a lifelong member of Wealthy Affiliate. I get all the benefits of Site Rubix plus the ongoing and updated weekly training.
Building a website and implementing best seo/website practices has never been so easy for me as it has been using this service!
I put together my site in less than a week and it’s up, running and has started getting 40+ views daily and just after 3 1/2 weeks of launch!
This is a great tool for anyone who is not too versed or just doesn’t have the time to build a website from scratch.
Cool Wendi, I might also encourage you to go through our Free Internet Marketing Training eCourse.
I try to give a unique perspective and recommendations based on what has and hasn’t worked for me over the years.
Plus, it give you the right mindset for this type of business.
Its amazing to know that it is that easy to build a website these days. I have a website but i’m glad that you tell your audience about how easy it is so that even more people can learn to make websites and earn an income from it.
Thank you very much
You bet Samantha, it’s a cool thing once you get the education to learn how to build out a site and make it profitable (AND HELPFUL).
But yeah, absolutely, the future is online commerce and so might as well as claim your stake in the real estate.
Not that many years ago building a website was only a pipedream for most. However, that is no longer the case with a great site builder like the site rubix platform you are showing people. I dont know why anyone wouldn’t want a free website.
I really think something like this could really go bigger than viral. We just have to get people exposed to the education that’s out there.
Absolutely Dale, I built a dummy free website and made a couple commissions off it, like $40 bucks, not much, but it was totally free and actually video’d to use on this site as an example.
I also did a paid domain and made a site with 4 pages and 1 post and it’s made a couple 100 in commissions.
Imagine what you can do if you really put time and effort into a site.
I sought out to learn how to create a website, not necessarily for free, but on a budget of some sorts.
I too used wealthy affiliate to learn quit a bit and the reality is I’m always still learning, but you are correct, having a proper education and the right tools make all the difference.
I’ve already got my niche defined and I’m getting some of my posts to rank and learning how to target to my niche audience.
Really nice comprehensive review of how the process is done.
Thanks for your feedback Lesa, much appreciated.
Building a website is a massive obstacle for anyone who doesn’t have the technical skills or the faintest clue where to start. But after reading your awesome tutorial on how to build a Free website, all I can say is WOW!!
I’m gobsmacked that anyone CAN actually easily build their own website in under 60 seconds AND without technical knowledge! That’s just crazy!
I’m definitely sharing this post for the whole wide world to see! I mean, why should people pay thousands of dollars for a website when they can create a professional looking one for free?
Apart from your “datecolomianwomen” website, was this website also built using the same website builder?
I hear you man. Before I started attending the university of Wealthy Affiliate, I was clueless. As a matter of fact, I paid a friend $1,000 dollars to set up a website that now I could create in less than a day. That’s with adding content for pages and posts. But yeah, it’s way too easy.
It is a pretty cool ability to be able to put up websites easily. And it’s something that every business, online or offline, needs to have.
As for your question. This website was built with the same website builder that Wealthy Affiliate offers. The only difference is I bought the domain name (Cost = 10 dollars/year). Other than that, both sites use WA “Cloud Hosting” and WordPress as my Content Management System.
Thanks for spreading this post around, I think it can help a lot of people who want to have their own blog, business website, or “niche” online business.
Have you got a website set up? And if so, do you have any recommendations for my readers?
Have a great day,
$1,000 is an awful lot of money to invest! But at least you found a way to create your own website which is sweet!
Now that you have the knowledge, have you considered easily putting together websites for friends, family and other business owners? It could be a nice little money earner and you could charge a fraction of the cost of what web designers and marketing agencies charge.
That sounds awesome! I bet many people would love a website just like yours and with the same benefits too.
You’re welcome 🙂
Yes, I’ve got a website set up and it’s at: HowToCreateOnlineWealth.com (Hope you don’t mind me dropping that in there).
I recommend that people buy domain names from WA’s Domain Name Service, setup free sites using SiteRubix which is fantastic and become part of the Wealthy Affiliate community in order to learn how to build and promote their websites in the appropriate manner.
You too, Todd.
Thanks for the advise as always, and I love your plug for your website, you’ve got a great site buddy and you should be proud. For sure, building websites now is super easy and isn’t a bad side job to do for friends.
I just updated this article because last night I was playing around with my example website, datecolombianwomen.siterubix.com using Jaaxy. I found the site ranking on page 9 in Google. I think that it’s a great testimonial to using Jaaxy. The site isn’t a dot.com site, and there is less than 3,000 words of content as well as 2 pages. The site was made 12 days ago mind you. There’s an About Page and a home page with a dating article.
I’ll keep you up to date on it if it moves up. Good stuff.
Thanks for getting back with me Neil and have a great evening.
Hey Todd, this article got me thinking for a bit.
Free web hosting has been rumored to be unreliable versus paid hosting.
What makes (free) hosting in Wealthy Affiliate stands out from the rest?
Awesome question and thanks for asking. Most free website builders use a single server for their website hosting. With multiple users on a single server, the users site is vulnerable if there is a technical problem with that server.
With Wealthy Affiliate’s free Siterubix Builder, you won’t have that issue. The reason being is because Wealthy Affiliate is a class act. They don’t use cheaper single dedicated servers, they use the good stuff, what’s called “Cloud Hosting”. Which is a bit complicated to explain so briefly here.
But in a nutshell, it’s a series of virtual servers that host multiple sites. So if there is a technical issue with one of the servers, another server with pick up the tasks of the server that failed. So you never have interruption issues in your hosting service because there are multiple servers to take up the slack.
This technology is starting to catch on, there just is a higher cost with Cloud Hosting versus Dedicated Server Hosting.
Let me know if have any other questions about SiteRubix and thanks for stopping by.
