Finding your own NICHE or a brand for your business is not enough if you do not have a home base, or what you call a website.
A website is the foundation of your business.
It is your created platform for your chosen niche which will you be promoting to drive traffic or visitors and eventually create money online.
Creating a website sounds hard especially if you are just starting in an online business who doesn’t have any knowledge in the “codings” which expert do in creating web pages. But do you know that even if you are just a beginner with no experience can actually build his or her own website?
In this article, I am going to give you a step by step process, in a very easy way to follow procedure using the most advanced yet simplistic platform in the world we use in Wealthy Affiliate Program, SiteRubix.
There are 4 steps in creating a website: >>Check Video
Step 1. Choose the kind of website.
When you get to the SiteRubix, it can access you to the SiteBuilder and everything else that is related to your website.
There are two options you can choose: creating a FREE website or creating with your OWN domain.
A domain is the address name where people can access your website through the internet. Domain names are registered, it is your property. There are several platforms where you can buy your own domain. You can also buy and register your domain name at Wealthy Affiliate through their SiteDomain platform and will allow you also to build your own website.
In this step-by-step guide, we will be using the FREE website which you can use as a Starter Member at Wealthy Affiliate. You are actually given 2 free websites and hosting as a Free Starter Member.
Step 2. Choose a domain name
By now, as you already have a niche for your business, you may also already have a particular domain name or a brand name for your website.
There`s a “domain field” which you can type your domain, do not put any space in between words when you are typing your domain name. This will then let you know if it is available or not. If it is, then that is great, but if not, try to come up again with any other name you have in mind.
Step 3. Choose a website name
Sometimes your domain name may be different from your website name. Or, if your domain name is with no space, then your domain name will be written correctly. For example, this website`s name is My Affiliate Diary, but its domain name is myaffiliatediary.com.
Step 4. Choose a website`s design.
This is one of my favorite steps, choosing the “look” of your website. There are thousands of designs or themes for a website. In Wealthy Affiliate, as a Starter Member, you have access to 12 different kinds of themes.
But if you upgrade to Premium Membership, you have access to more or less 2,464 designs or themes available to choose from for your website.
