This is a quick overview that walks you through the process of creating a website here at Wealthy Affiliate.

It takes me literally 30 Seconds to create a fully functional, Wordpress website!

Starter Members = 2 Free Websites (on .siterubix.com domain)

Premium Members = 50 Websites (25 free .siterubix.com website and 25 on your OWN Domains)

Hope you enjoy this video. Easy website creation at it's finest, not to mention all websites at Wealthy Affiliate are hosted on the most secure, reliable, and powerful managed Wordpress hosting platform in the world.

For more perspective of the quality of the "state of the art" hosting platform you get here at WA, check out the following details page:

Excellent video and excellent web management platform.

I have a question though. As a starter I will work on one site only to begin with and it will be a free domain on the SiteRubix platform. In other words my site will be on a subdomain. Being my first website I do not expect it to be my best work of all times, it will be mediocre at the very best.

I still would like to know, who will own the content of the website I will build on the free domain? I know it will most probably be a pile of rubbish. Will it be my rubbish?

Thanks in advance x

Great detailed and informative video! This is the kind of details I'm excited to play with and monitor, just because all these admin details are not just 'details', they are the tools that make sure and make me feel IN CONTROL of my site!
To me, this WA concept and technology are a unique, state-of-the-art and avant-garde IT breakthrough!
I'm really looking forward to use them extensively!
Well done, Kyle & Carson!
and All the best, to each and all!

I have am very new too all of this and even through I have never had my own web sight before, the video here makes it look very easy to do and I can not wait to get started. But I do have a question? I very much want to become a premium member, unfortunately a little while ago my bank account was hack and everything I had in it was taken and my account was close. I literally don't have the funds right now to purchase the premium package at this moment. In fact I am still in the process of still trying to find a new bank phase. I was just wondering can I will I have access to the first month discount after the time runs out? And if so for how long? But if not then will I still be able to become a premium member once I get my finances back on track?

Hello and welcome. I am not sure about the discount being extended past your 7 days but u can become a premium member at anytime just by paying the monthly fee. U can also stay a free member for as long as u want. Once your 7 days are up u can still use the search bar above for more training and help, just type in the words u are looking for and it will show what is available to u. So once your finances are on track u can become a premium member and still work on your website in the mean time.

Ok, so I registered my domain name this afternoon thru Wealthy Affiliate, and after paying through PayPal for the domain name, I received a message from PayPal that Wealthy Affiliate had accepted the purchase and then a few minutes later sent me a refund on my purchase price -- so my registration did not go through and the name is still available -- does anyone know what went wrong??

I have a few questions. First, I absolutely love WA now that I understand it and can roam around with jumping out a window. I am a retired Federal employee. I get paid quite well but only once a month - on the first of the month. Therefore, on August 1st, I will be able to pay for the premium membership for the year. Until then I will play with creating two free websites to be comfortable with them. I do have a domain name, ANJELLISAJEWELRY.COM on Shopify that never got formalized to my satisfaction in a website. I would like to transfer this domain to WA and create a nice website here to sell jewelry. I have a photographer coming here on August 1st to photograph 20 sterling silver gemstone rings I imported from China to add to the website. I will also notify Spotify that I am moving it. Then I can send emails, banners, etd from here.

If you have any problems with anything I have said or if you have any suggestions, please let me know. I really appreciate your advice.

Smiles,
Gerrie

Obviously shopify has their own proprietary store platform, but you can use things like WooCommerce (which is the most popular platform for stores within Wordpress).

Hi! I really enjoyed the video on how to create a website. I own a domain name that I purchased previously from GoDaddy. Would I need to follow the same process from this video to setup my website? Is this process for creating sub domains only? Please let me know if my inquiries need any clarification. Any feedback provided would be greatly appreciated!

When you go to build your site in the siterubix manager you will given the opportunity to transfer your domain name to WA. Note that you need to be a premium member to have a domained account.

You can use the above process to create a new website:

1) Using a domain you purchase here (must be Premium member)

2) Using a domain name from another registrar (must be Premium member)

3) Using a free subdomain (starter members and premium members can do this)

Whatever you choose to do is simple, and if you need help just reach out. Cheers :)

OMG!! I'm already overwhelmed after watching the video, I am hoping I can get 1 website up...but 50!! I tend to quit things early, however...I committed myself to not giving up and working my way through these lessons and giving it 110%!
My question is, if I build my site but not upgrade until later (really, these kind of things are like a gym membership to me) will my site upgrade, domain, etc...?
Reply
ericcantu Premium
Don't be overwhelmed by the big 50 number. 1 or 2 websites can be a very profitable undertaking :) You don't have to ever build 50! (whew!)

Your site doesn't "upgrade" with premium or anything like that. What you do get with premium is the option to purchase your own domain and here at WA they are really, really cheap ($13.99-$15.99/year), but that of course is a separate, but small, cost.

If you've started with building your free site and then purchase a domain later you don't have to build it all over again. You can move it over with the click of a button so that part's easy :)

Hi everyone!
I'm just setting up my website, and with all the 2500 site Theme options (Premium account), it's a bit exciting, and overwhelming..

I have a few site ideas..for blogging, selling products and training courses.

Is there a WA resource / info that helps with the decision-making process of what Theme to choose?

And, once I choose a theme, and don't like it, can I change it down the road with no implications to my site pages/info?
Thanks!!!

What is the difference between a subdomain like .siterubix.com and an owned domain?

How much would it be to make your own domain?

Also how do visitors or the audience you are trying to reach react to a subdomain site as opposed to a owned domain site? I know having a subdomain can make you website name longer, maybe a little harder to remember when you go to search it.

I plan to get comfortable with marketing and promoting products first but eventually down the road I would like to create my own products to sell on my website for anyone to buy. How does that work?

Any feedback would be awesome!

Thank you!

The domain within the Starter membership are created on the .siterubix.com domain, you are in full control of the content, but you don't own the actual domain.

When you are ready, you can move these sites over to your own domains with a click of a button here at WA using the MOVE feature.

We also have a SiteDomains (domain registration platform) here at WA that simplifies the process. It is a breeze, it handles everything properly for SEO, and these are features included within the Premium membership.

Hope this clarifies for you Angelee.

This is how I see it ..

You have a bunch of family coming over ( traffic)

Are they going to remember and enjoy visiting at your own home ( domain)?

Or at a home where you have roommates ( siterubix.com)?

I would prefer the home rather than the other .
Reply
TimMcKinlay Premium
Hey Ange, couldn't find a link as such, but there are advantages to owning your own domain. This is known as a 'top level domain (TLD).

Basically, better rankings in Google and better authority in your niche. It is always better to own your own domain, but a free subdomain is cool to get started or 'test the waters' so to speak.

If I am a current premium member and am about to create my first website, but it looks like in the future I might have to downgrade to the free membership (budget constraints), what will happen to any themes etc I choose under the premium options? Would it be wiser to choose from the free options first, and wait until I can consistently stick with the premium membership/all its options?

Unfortunately, u cannot downgrade back to a free member once u are premium. If u stop being premium then u will have 30 days to move your site to another hosting platform.

You cannot downgrade to Starter, but you will be able to resubscribe to your Premium account at any time and reconnect your membership (when you can make it back). ;)

We also host your website for 30 days beyond the cut off date, which gives you time to still work on it or move it to another host in the meantime.

Hope this clarifies for you Kristine!

I tried to write for many years...I'm an administrator and former facilitator/trainer. I'll tell you what my mentor told me: write how you talk to people (not speak--talk). If you need to clean it up, you can do that in a few minutes before posting. How do you know what to write? Ask questions of your subject. If you are not a subject-matter expert, become one, it will make things easier when writing about your subject. You become a subject-matter expert by reading and doing--learn as you go and put it into action. Oh, it doesn't happen tomorrow--it happens over time. One day you won't know that you didn't know what you know. ;-) I wish you the best.

I have some questions about websites:

1. It seems better to own a domain (which is possible with a Premium account) than to use a free domain (siterubix in this case), why?

2. I already asked a similar question at the end of lesson 1 or 2 (which I got some kind replies for), but I want to be sure: is it easy (as it seems better, as mentionned in the first question) to transfer an entire website from a free domain (siterubix) to another one we would then own?

I am asking these question because I am really interested and I am looking forward to start a website, but I think I will start and continue with my Starter account for a while (several weeks at least). I could totally be intersted in a Premium account, later, if it goes well, in regard to the advantages it can provide to a more expanded business.

Thank you in advance for your reply.

P.S. I really am a newbie as a website creator, but I can't wait to dive into it and will already start one, in any case, to try and learn :)

The reason many move over to a paid domain is because of the perception of authority when a site is on a paid domain. When your traffic starts to build and your target audience has the chance to choose between your post and another post next to it on a google search, the majority of the time they feel the authority site is the one where the owner has a vested interest in his website and owns his own domain. There's nothing physically better about the domain, it's just a perception type of thing. If you found a site about training kittens to play the drums so they can join a punk rock band as a guise while they infiltrate another country's government as spies you'd probably pick http://undercoverpunkrockkittendrummerspies.org over http://undercoverpunkrockkittendrummerspies.siterubix.com. Google also sees it as a positive sign of authority as well :)

But by all means feel free to build your site on the siterubix platform for now and whenever you're ready you can move it over to your own domain. They're super cheap at just barely over $1/month and moving your content from siterubix to a paid domain is very easy when you're ready. It's done with one click. As far as staying free for weeks, you can stay free as long as you like, but I don't think it would take you several weeks to finish course 1 of the training. I'm thinking you'll be ready to get on with the rest of the training much earlier than that and go premium. At $19 it's hard to beat :) good luck!

While we can't embed these videos directly into our websites, the easiest way to do it is the same way Kyle does in his tutorials.

1. Take a screenshot of the video player above
2. Copy your affiliate link from the white "affiliate" tab above the player
3. Place the screenshot image into your post
4. Make the screenshot image a link using the affiliate link you copied in step two.

This will make it so it'll appear you have an embedded video in your post and when they click on it they'll be taken right here. The great thing is that if they decide to click on anything once here they'll be prompted to create a free account and if and when they do that you'd earn a referral commission.

In checking this out and with no experience in the technology world.

Then I got an email from you Kyle that what the message said it came from saying to watch a video and that is when I realize I have made a mistake and need more incentive for me to be interested in learning it . But in building a website and then what when will I see any traffic or profit in doing this.

Building a website is the first step and by no means do you need to be technically savvy to be very successful online. :)I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Joy. :)

If I understand u correctly u want to add this video to your website and if someone clicks on it and joins WA u want the credit, correct? Then all u need to do is click the "Affiliate" button at the top of the post on the right-hand side. In there is a link code that will have your personal affiliate ID embedded in it all ready for u. Then just take a screenshot of the video, place it on your page and create a link for it using the link code u get from the "Affiliate" button. Then if someone joins WA through the video u will get the credit.

If I have misunderstood u I do apologize.

I just signed up today, and have already reached Lesson 4. I can honestly say that, as a previously employed tech support specialist and website builder, this seems like an incredibly intuitive platform. I'm excited to see that someone has taken the initiative to put together a system that does the hard building, and allows you to concentrate on the business aspects of formulating and implementation instead. Sounds like a winning solution thus far. Haven't built my first website yet, but definitely looking forward to it.

As a starter member you can have 2 siterubix sites hosted here. You would have to go premium to have your own domains hosted here, In the meantime, you can use what you are learning through the starter membership to apply to your domains. Hope that helps clear it up for you.

Ques 1: All you need to do is to point them to WA from your web host. If you are using GoDaddy, they have a very easy to follow video (as do most web host service providers). If you are still unsure about the process, just reach out to your web host for the instructions. It's a simple process, you just need to know where to look on their site. :0)
Ques 2: Not 100% sure on this one. That said... 25 websites is a lot. I wouldn't suggest going in on more than 1 (2 absolute max) for starting out. Writing content for 1 site can be a full time job. To do it right, you need to research and more research. If you are just selling via product reviews, then I can see multiple websites for various niches, however 25 niches is kind of a lot. Once you start closing in on 25 successful websites, let's revisit this question. To run 25 successful websites.. actually to run 3+ successful websites requires a team.

My suggestion would be to pick a specific area in your field and target that with your website. A niche is usually a targeted area of expertise that targets a specific audience, like "health and healing for those over 50", or "Weight loss for women after pregnancy" or something like that. The point being is that it targets a certain audience. Hope this helps u some.

You can move any domain to any domain hosted here at WA. For example, if you wanted to move your Siterubix website to a domain that you have purchased, then it is a very simple process.

The "Move" feature also handles for all proper redirects and SEO, it will transfer your site in its entirety and it is as simple as a few clicks. See attached screenshot for what I am referring to here.

I would not target one product and name your domain after that. that is an old school tactic which is not good anymore, target the niche and review the product as a part of your content within it. In short, just follow the training :)

Look up the company website. A lot of websites will have a link to their affiliate program hidden towards the bottom of their webpage.

If you can't find their affiliate program, then contact the website owner or their support team, and they should let you know. Most affiliate programs already have a commission % set-up , so you shouldn't have to negotiate.

If they have an affiliate program, look to see if they have an affiliate "tools" or "promo" page.

Make sure you are signed up as an affiliate before you start promoting their product or program, or you will not make any commissions.

They often will have banners with html code, which you can then copy and past into your side bar widget, or wherever you want on your webpage, with your affiliate link embedded in it. Make sure your affiliate link is in the html code so you get credit for it.

I find some youtube tutorials, but they don't look anything like what shows up on this computer. Any helpful thoughts greatly appreciated.

Choosing the website theme is difficult. I can't tell from the demos what the website will look like and how it will be to use it.

I'll make the best guess possible at this point but I'm wondering if there's a further way to see any of them in action.

It usually looks fairly similar to what you see in the demo, but all websites start outas a "blank shell" and then as you add content to it you are going to see the overall design of your website take shape.

When I first decided to create a website I searched n internet for WordPress and created my site through that. I even bought a domain. Now I have joined WA I am wondering if the one I have already created is linked in any way or if I have to start again with WA. Can you please clarify this for me. Thanks!

If u already own a domain with a website on it then u can just move it to WA and carry on using it here.

Hi Gunnertwist, one of my interests is to travel. I look forward to your input. Thanks,
Reply
Gunnertwist Premium
what area of travel? U need to narrow it down a little more, like vacation packages to some area, or traveling the world tips, or tips on travelling in a car or RVing across country, something like that. U start small then expand to more areas as u gain authority with your site. Just travel is pretty broad, but what about thehappytraveller.siterubix.com or onestoptravelshop.siterubux.com or yourtravelstop.siterubix.com. Hard to really come up with something if I do not know what u r going to do in travel.

Yes since I first came here and it still holds true to this day. I find the system in place to set up your website at WA is one of the easiest paths to get started. Everything is in place to do so and the support here is great and very attentive to the needs of the WA community. I have got help everytime I needed it and far faster than I have anywhere else.

I have a website on shopify, my question is can I build out an ecommerce store here using the free domain (I would want to test it out first since it is a different platform), then after I upgrade to premium, move my domain here then use that "move" button to move the whole site to my transferred domain?
Reply
ridesisapis Premium
You can certainly create a site using an ecommerce theme and install Woocommerce etc but you probably won't be able to test it as the free sites aren't SSL enabled.

You will be able to point your already registered domain name to your free site on SiteRubix and it will be moved to that domain name within SiteRubix when you do that.

Hi there!

I'm finally starting to dedícate more time to WA. I'm at lesson 4 of the "Getting Started" and I've created a website as told by Kyle in his video. However, after doing so I've noticed the following:

- In the website details of Kyle's video, under SitePlus+, he has 3 points: SiteSpeed, SiteSSL and SiteProtect.
- In my website details, under the same section, there are only 2: SiteSSL and SiteProtect. SiteSpeed is missing.

Is this ok? Did I do anything wrong? Shouln't the 3 points be there?

Thank you all in advance.

No, you have done nothing wrong. It would appear that Kyle is using the yet-to-be-rolled-out WA platform that includes the SiteSpeed feature.

You can read a bit about the upcoming site speed improvements in a recent blog post by Kyle:

Should we be concerned about LLCs or state sales tax for these websites?
I am not very knowledgeable about technology so I will probably be asking a lot of questions so any help would be appreciated. The video helped me understand the process it's the details I may need held with.

I'm not a lawyer or CPA and so this isn't legal or financial advice. A lot of states and localities require that if you are engaged in a business that you register for a sales tax license and submit sales tax returns. Whether or not you have to pay sales tax(or whatever it may be called in your state) on affiliate commissions is an entirely different issue. If you didn't want to research and/or consult with a professional, yet still be on the safe side, you could just pay the sales tax on any of your earnings. Easy, but you might be over paying your taxes. LLC's could be useful from limiting you legal exposure and protecting personal assets, but you don't need one. You could run as a sole prop if you wanted to. It's really up to you though.

Gunnertwist Premium
I to am not a lawyer or CPA by any means at all, but I did just wanted to add to ThomasPaul's post, if u are associated with someone like Amazon as an affiliate member, they will send u a 1099 each year for the commissions that u earn. This is pretty common for most USA based affiliate programs, I believe. I am not sure about companies outside of USA. Someone can correct me if I am wrong please. Hope this helps a little.

I'm not lawyer or a CPA, but I believe that since you are earning a commission as an affiliate marketer, rather than directly selling products, it's not up to you to collect or pay sales tax. The IRS 1099 form will show the income which you will have to declare and pay income tax on. You will get a 1099 form because there will be nothing withheld from the income from your affiliate partners. You may want to pay estimated taxes quarterly on this income so you won't owe a bunch of money next year on tax day. It depends on how successful you become as to whether paying income tax for a whole year in one fell swoop becomes a problem. LOL

Don't worry, anything "new" can be a little overwhelming. It is just part of the learning process. Just don't think you are going to learn all of this in a day or a week, as you move through the training and take action, much of this will become second nature to you Petar! :)

As you go through the lessons, you will learn how to build all of those types of sites. You can sell products and affiliate products at the same time. Word Press is a blogging tool so you will always have a page when you can write reviews, add your thought and you niche. You invites into the products is part of what gets people to your site and then educates them to buy.

Yeah, these are all things you are going to be learning as you move through the training. If you want to get a good handle on the overall process though, I recommend you go through the following training:

Something to keep in mind if you are not yet a premium member, like myself. If you try to change your theme after it is initially chosen, dashboard only gives you 3 other themes to change too, instead of the 12 you saw when first choosing. As I wasn't happy with any of them, I ended up deleting my page and starting over so when you first choose your theme try to ensure it is the one you want! Happy building!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, that is because it is very intensive to load 12 themes (install them all) with every site, it wouldn't make sense. You can always delete a site and then rebuild it using a new them or use one of your other free websites if you are still a Starter member.

Hope this helps you out here!

You can but keep in mind that as a free member you have limited access to the training and other few things.

Hi Kyle, i have already built a website "Beating Cancer Naturally".Is this too broad a niche ? And not a profitable one because there's already a lot of information on the net ? *****I've already watched the video on what to do next after buiding the website, but i'm still not sure what to do. I logged in to my website and updated wordpress to 2.7.3 and clicked on plugins and now i'm very lost. Could you help me please ?

Hi there. I think that would be a fine niche. I have friend here whose site is about Renal Cancer and Dialysis. I would be very interested in your site as I am a cancer survivor and I did it naturally as well. It has been almost 9 months now and still in full remission, woohoo! To get a better response time from Kyle u should PM him instead. He will respond, except over the weekend. Thats is his time off. Anyway, would love to chat sometime, take care.

I have build my website but up until now I am unable to add my image to my website.
I open my website while watching one of your tutorial videos and I saw you click a icon in the upper right corner and from there you work on your picture, in the picture, you had on a brown T-shirt, and you brought it to size and fit it into your website . You said the site was new so it was for demonstration it has no content yet. I could not add a image to my website then as that Icon is not on my website.

I did something the other day that i probably shouldn't have done. After watching the lesson on how to build your website and pick your domain name, I made the mistake of Googling my niche. I saw that there were tons of websites that were doing close to the same thing that I was doing and got very discouraged. I spent all day yesterday thinking about whether or not I wanted to continue doing this.

Today I feel a bit better but not completely. I decided that am going to continue and NOT do that again. I trust that the people here have felt the same in the past.

Don't feel bad, we have all been there (well some of at least). I did kind of the same thing and ended up deleting my website and starting over from the beginning. The nice thing is that here in WA it does not take long to fix up your mistakes with their great tools. So stay encouraged and keep working little bits at a time. As long as you do something with your business every day you will get to the end. :)

Most of us have probably done the same. Just because there are a lot of stores at the mall does not mean that you should not put your store there. It's just the opposite, there's where the demand is and there's where the traffic is. Glad you're still here, Vern.

Very informative. I just activated my site and it helps to have a separate monitor so you can have your website info on one and the video tutorial on your computer and follow what is being shown more easily. Obviously Site Rubix has upgraded their site since this tutorial was created, but the basics are still correct. I'm very anxious to continue with my training to learn how to get viable content on my site. This is very exciting!

Kyle, God bless you, very interesting. What's the difference between domain and website? If i'very WordPress existing before now can I link it up. What would you recommend for a writer of peom, prose or drama or motivational books to do? I mean the kind of website that would be content driven for this genre.

I believe the layout is clean, simple and inviting to read... I like it when the entire content is broken down into titled sections and I decided as well to follow that example to my own site. I definitely believe the video is a SUPER PLUS + for any content and as soon as I learn how to do it (through this course), I'm upgrading all my sites with video content as well. Thanks for inviting my input on this post.

Hi Kyle,
My website took me a little longer than 30 seconds to build. But, I have to say it was only a little over one minute.
That is not bad for never doing this before!

Now the fun of adding content, videos and pictures to make it my own personality.

With the Premium account, can I create a store type website with a shopping cart, etc? Can I build an algorithm within my website (I think that's what I mean, for example: a page on my site where a person could enter a city, state/zip code and be given the name of the closest airport)? Or are all the websites, through WA, blog based?
Reply

All the websites at WA are Wordpress - you have no access to cPanel technology, so unless you can find a plug-in (or program a plug-in) to provide the functionality you seek, it's not possible.

Shopping carts are available, however, payment processing will not be functional until WA provides SSL (coming soon).

1) Yes, you can change your theme. 2) No, you can't have multiple themes for different pages (at least not easily, it is an advanced technique that requires a theme builder which is not free).

Great info. So I would like to know that I own my domain. If registered through SiteRubix I am always free to take with me in the event I should leave and sorry for that sounding negative just want to know that it is truly my domain without strings attached. Further, I have no intent of leaving as I believe I found a home just due diligence. Also I am really impressed so far with what I am seeing and the folks sharing - it's great!

Hi and welcome.
Yes, you can take your domain with you if you leave WA. It's your domain as long as you renew every year with the registrar.
You should be aware that some of the info in the last video has been updated. Once you get into building and working your site, you'll find differences that will need to be rectified. but still no big deal.
