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, you can actually build your own website?

In this guide, 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 I use in Wealthy Affiliate Program, SiteRubix.

How to build a website in 30 seconds

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, since you already have an idea or a  niche for your business, you may now think of a  particular domain name or a brand name for your website.

I suggest you name your site almost similar to your niche.  Also, if you are thinking of your own branding, using your own name is also a good way to name as your domain name.

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

There are instances that your domain name is different from your website name.  It is all up to you.

Or, you can simply have the same website name as your domain name. But make sure to write it correctly.  Domain names are written with no space and all small letters. For example, this website`s name is My Affiliate Diary, but its domain name is


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 that will work for any niche.
