I have just gone through the process of creating my very first website!! I am very excited to add content to this site! All of the videos I have watched this far have been amazing! I am VERY new to this entire process, and was very scared at the idea of trying this. I honestly thought it would be weeks before I had a niche, let alone a site to work on. Its been less than 24 hours and I'm following and understanding the materials! I cannot say thank you enough for making this a smooth, and easy process this far. I cannot wait to upgrade, and see exactly how far I can go with all this information and training!

You are definitely in the right place at the right time. Wealthy Affiliate has never been more advanced and in a better state, and the affiliate marketing marketing and Internet mktg. industry in general has never had more opportunity.

Usually when I hear audio in English active translator, I know that this wonderful place does not have this option, but it would be possible to make the video a little slower, since there is no other choice but to learn English, at least a little more slowly please ... or also a transcript written in pdf would be great ... I want to take 1000x1000 everything you say, but frustrated by the language .. Any suggestions? .. thank you.

I currently have a capture page made in Wordpress that is using the domain I would like to use for my page here. I also want to have a specific link to that capture page for anyone interested in that specific product. How do I go about transferring my Wordpress capture page here, and do I just give it a subdomain name then?

Hi Susan.
Why not just transfer your site here and solve all the problems in one go.

What if you make a free website and it's successful or has potential, would your ideas or domain name get taken before you get a chance to purchase your own domain? Also once you're ready to purchase a domain do you have to build a whole new site? Or can you just change the name of your first free site? Basically just take out the "siterubix" and just have .com
Reply
BobBarr Premium
It can be very difficult to purchase the same domain name as you have for your siterubix subdomain name. In many cases, you'll find that the domain name is already registered and you'll need to come up with another one.

The siterubix platform has a "Move" function that will copy your entire siterubix site to a purchased domain with one click. The name of the purchased domain doesn't matter for that function to work. It will move any free domain's content to the new domain.
Reply
Thanks, very helpful, so is it just hard in general to get the name you want on your own domain? Also is a siterubix site really efficient and secure enough to run a good site generating revenue? Or is getting your own domain always really going to be necessary eventually?

Hi there! You could always park a domain that you want, later on you can move it to WA, and then move your site rubix to your domain. It can all be done. Indeed you can move your site rubix to a new domain at WA and all pages will be forwarded to it, it will also tell Google about it, so you have no duplicate content issues. So once you did that, leave the site rubix website there for at least a month or so, so that Google knows where your new website is. All done for you, it's a wonderful thing!

Remember that any website has potential. You create the potential. You can make anything profitable, if you do an excellent job in providing great service and solutions to your visitors!

I wish you great succes at WA! ☼

In answer to your second question: yes having your own domain name is essential for your rankings in Google! And it's better for your visitors, they take you more serious if you have your own domain name. You can run a website in site rubix of course, it's secure and it has the basics you need. But running your own domain is much better. Highly recommended. It's worth the investment to go premium :-)

Thanks so much for that

If I'm adamant that my site is going to be successful would you recommend starting it in my own domain? Or starting on a free siterubix to be safe and then move it to my own domain once it begins to pick up?
Reply

Start with a free site, get your grounding and then once you are ready, move to your own domain. You can get your own domain out of the gate if you like, but you will need a Premium membership to hot your own domain.

We have a MOVE feature that you can use to easily transition a free .siterubix.com website to your own domain.

Thank you for explaining that! I was wondering the same thing: can I transfer to a purchased domain in the near future using the free siterubix initially.

I'm a old web developer and designer. This is so easy, and yes, gone are the days for hiring someone like me! Thus, I am here!

Pay per click was something I did for my own Ecommerce business (Circa 1999-2007) and spent a ridiculous amount of money each year with Google. But I also did the original version of affiliate ads reversing the process of spending to earning on my domains. I had a ton of domains and several had top ratings in Google organically. So, I simply inserted the codes for ads and the first year without even trying I made $4,000 with an initial input of about 2 days online.

But it was labor intensive and I hosted my own domains etc. I soon abandoned that gig for a full time web developer position in the "real 9-5 job...ugh).

This process offered appears to be so far, like a cakewalk for anyone with a desire to put in a little time. It's all pre built - like buying a house already built and having it dropped on a piece of land! Skip the carpentry and hard labor! Can't wait!

Yeah, times have changed and the efficiency in which you can build beautiful and highly advanced websites has truly changed.

Things that used to take months now can be done in days and as time goes on, we are going to continue to simplify things in ways that no other hosting co or website platform is doing.

Lots of exciting shifts coming in 2018 that will only continue to advanced our already advanced platform.

Hi Kyle, so here is a question. I am considering to transfer the hosting of my Dutch website (a .nl domain) to Wealthy Affiliate. Right now I build the entire html etc. myself. It looks okay, people love it, but it can look much better. So I could start in site rubix, transferring all my website pages there with the exact same page url name they have right now (like example.html, etc.) and then when that huge job is done, make sure my domain name is linked to the make over version? I don't want a lot of down time okay ;-) Even better: no down time because I have a lot of dedicated visitors that would be in shock if it was all offline... I want all the pages to have the exact same name, because they are already well ranked in Google, so no changes there! What would be the best strategy to work with?

And yes, as a start I'm going to create a brand new international website as well :-D I already researched and found a great and very short .com domain name :-D Is it better to first start building in site rubix and then later on link the domain name? Or register the domain name right away and hide it for google for a while till I have a number of lovely articles etc. published?

My mind is spinning a bit, but I really like this new adventure! I hope my questions are clear to you, if not just ask! Thank you for reading!

If it is just pure html, I guess you could create a dummy site at WA.
Then using ftp or FileZilla transfer the pure html files over from your old host over to your WA hosting. I think your dot htaaccess file needs an entry so that if someone visits say thewebsite dot com, that the default html file opens up.

Using pure html means you have to build all your webpages from scratch, whereas using Word Press, the look and feel of the website is in the Word Press Theme, so it is easy enough to change the look and feel without 'destroying' the content.

Play around with the Site Rubix way of using the WA site builder, develop a small test site first and play around. Using WA with WP means that the WP theme takes care of a lot of things regarding the look and feel of the website and on different platforms (pc / smartphone / ipads ) whereas using pure HTML you would have to build each webpage separately.

Once you are familiar with this way of doing things, you will see what a time saver it is compared to using pure HTML.

Hi David, yes I know, I have other sites build in WP and it's a super platform to build your content. I didn't want to change my own programming etc. for the website I mentioned because that would mean I would have to do it in a real crazy way with my current provider, they offer WP too you see, but over here at WA it's much easier to switch stuff. So I will have to build a dummy indeed until I'm satisfied (around 60 pages to transfer, but okay!) It will be so much better for the site structure as well. Google loves WP! So a lot to do for me ;-) The domain will stay at the current provider, because it is a .nl domain and WA doesn't offer that I guess. But I could change the name servers once I finished transferring all the pages into posts etc. There will be a few changes as some posts will change into pages, better for the tier structure, which I haven't got right now. I was too lazy to change all of that hahaha.

This is an amazing front end manager. I've worked with several others and without even finishing the video I can tell this is going to be worth it. All this content and a management platform for only 50 a month(rhetorical)? I've seen other suites that only offer a fraction of what you do for several times the cost. Why would anyone go somewhere else? Am I missing something? What is the catch?

Ok, I have my niche.... Camping and hiking gear for women and kids... is it a good choice to use the free domain and then move it to my own domain later? The comments on here seem to go both ways and I know it is a personal choice... is it really that easy to change it over at a later date?
Also, should my site name be a variation of what I described as my niche or how best to use the concept into a site name?

Question: This video demos how to set up a free site with WA. If we want to own the domain, we click "register a new domain", complete the process of registering our domain, and then must upgrade to premium in order to build the site on our domain? I am ok either way, I just am confused on the process. Can we build our site for free on a domain that we just registered with WA?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, in order to host your own domains you will need to be a Premium member. You can host up to 25 of your own domains as a Premium.

You can build two free websites on the .siterubix.com domain as a free Starter member.

I hope this clarifies.

Hey, I'm a little concerned. I see mainly the type of websites to create here are niche for those who would like to know about something and helping others (their audience) on how to find/learn about that topic. Not sure how that is going to work with my one of my website interest project. My website goal is not necessarily a "niche" has a project. Wanting to advertise and promote my goal in publishing a book and eventually a movie on a lesser known star? Who is my audience? Those who enjoy classic entertainment? Or would I need to go the route of my audience to learn with me on how to publish a book, then a movie/film?

And if i can create my business with WA, how can WA help me keep track of the sales and progress, i know it must be silly to ask but can anyone explain it to me.
Reply
MozMary Premium
do you actually have products that you want to sell? You can certainly create a shop with wordpress and the plugin woocommerce

affiliate marketing is where you don't need to invest in products, you help other people sell their products and you get a commission. It means you don't need to invest money in a product inventory or handle shipping.

so if you were in the health niche there are many products you can review and help guide people towards buying - they are already searching in google and are researching, you help them - same with the online marketing niche, people want to know where to get online with a website and you explain how good this platform is [or another one of your choosing] and when people sign up you get a commission

so niche is choosing your audience, who do you want to sell to , what do you think you could promote

if you follow along the lessons Kyle will explain how making money online works

You can change your theme at any time within your WP-admin:

Appearance => Themes

There are over 3,000 to choose from there and you will also be able to upload your own from there.

Simply do a search there (the search is pretty good) and you will be able to find a theme/look that you are seeking.

I have created some training on how to do this that you should check out:

I've designed a number of sites using WordPress and have them hosted elsewhere. I'm new to WA and looking forward to trying out the SiteRubix, also to see how it compares to my experience with the WP platform. I may end up moving those other sites to be hosted here.

One thing that I'll need to change as soon as I create the first site is the username and password, and that's just from a security perspective. Brute force attacks increase every week, and the first username they use is "admin". So I always create a uniques UN and then a 32-character random password. And I also use a plugin called WPS Hide Login, which masks the wp-admin feature of the back end - also for security reasons.

Aside from that, I use Smush for Image Optimization and Yoast for SEO, but they're similar to EWWW and All in One SEO. All these plugins are available on the WP repository at https://wordpress.org All in all, it looks very similar to building sites as I have previously, can't wait to get started. Peace y'all. :-)

Yeah, it really is that easy. In terms of your login, we protect that on our end and people actually can't attempt to hack it with our SiteProtect platform here (that protects your site in many different ways).

We also ran test using Smush vs. EWWW and EWWW came out the clear winner. AIO SEO has been chosen over yoast simply because it is more simplistic and doesn't have a lot of the "fluff" Yoast has, but both are great plugins. ;)

Thankful to have the top notch security - I've been taking care of that on my own for years. I did go ahead and install Smush and Yoast, but you know what? I'll remove them and try EWWW and All in One!

I am having difficulty deciding on a theme. Each has its own set of headers Footers widgets gizmos and bells and whistles.

you could try out a few different themes on the free sites first before choosing one for your main site, though I think they may be limited to about 12 types

bear in mind themes on your main site can be changed quite easily, just backup your site first

I'm hearing people recommend both customizr and divi, or just something real simple like the ones suggested on the free sites - it will be about the content - see how simple Kyle tends to keep it

I'm here at this website building stage, into my 3rd day at WA. I have already absorbed in the importance of choosing a niche. But since I'm all new to this, I want to know whether I can add features to my site later on, say more drop-down menus, pictures, videos, etc. after it going "live"? And before actually completing the site, will my website go live in its incomplete avatar? Is there an option where I can "save" the finished process but keep the site on hold so that it doesn't have to go live? Or can I launch it in its unfinished stage but let everyone know that certain features/landing-pages on it are still "under construction"?

You can modify your site, including all those items you listed, at any point, now or in the future.

If you use a plugin like Coming Soon you can block visitors to your site until you're ready for them to see it. https://wordpress.org/plugins/coming-soon/

Yeah most people hold back their sites on the reasons under construction so that they can add features like videos, pictures or dropdowns of menu, etc later. In my case I immediately let it go live with a page about the usefulness of WA as my first bite or experience and the usefulness it had given me and attract visitors ( you can check that page on my site,July 9). Because Google will look in to the longevity of a site for its Ranking as another factor. Some articles that need modifications can be made unpublished through the SiteRubix Ultimate Writing Platform. Hope this helps.

most people on this platform do not hold back their sites, outside of WA they do, but here the focus is on SEO and as one superaffiliate blogged recently, he does let those articles out into google as soon as they are written to give them time to be found and rank - of course there is a big difference between writing good content and having a fancy site - good content being the emphasis and no shortcuts on that

I think I'm getting somewhat stuck here. Since it's a proper website that we are talking about (unlike a blog), I guess the scale is certainly bigger if the goal is to attract visitors. And as rightly pointed out, nothing beats a good content and the way the contents are stacked. If content is then, the be-all and end-all in a website, it also means the one who's owning the site needs to be a good communicator, if not a good writer. Isn't that so? Does this imply that in order to be successful in online business, one also needs to write well?? Does this also mean one needs to have a blueprint of the site before one actually starts building it??

As I was watching the video, certain questions came to my mind. I have been told that after building my website on the "free" platform here, I can shift the whole website on a domain that I own. But after shifting to my own domain, will I still be able to get all the support that I got in building my free website? Secondly, will my website (built on my own domain) remain in my custody and control once my premium membership ends? During the building phase itself, will I be able to enter into affiliate programs and start my business right away?

ok, looks like you confused the domain with the hosting

1.you get free sites, they can be moved to your own domain at the click of a button and into the WA hosting, which you've already paid for with your membership - notice it is high end wordpress specific managed hosting with some extra features like SSL certs, email, and speed and spam protect, and more, so to compare prices with other hosting companies you have to look at their absolute top prices

2. If you choose to use different hosting then you can move your site, that is no problem, and you can still do all the affiliate programs - they are not dependent on where you are hosted

3. premium membership doesn't 'end', it is a subscription that is either monthly or yearly, The starter membership with the two free sites doesn't end either unless you go premium - at which point you've unlocked all the training so you can't go back down - I see you are already premium.

4. During the building phase yes you can apply for affiliate programs, many of these have their own rules as to whether they let new sites apply, and some people would advise to get your site established before flooding it with affiliate links - magistudios has some training on that, and you'll see members talk about it too

Thanks, MozMary. Yes, I was getting mixed up with the domain and hosting thing. I never knew, web hosting has already been included in the premium membership. And you have managed to clear up my few concerns. Thanks for the reply!

You get all the support though you transferred it to your own.Because it's the same platform that gives you 'free' or 'own'. Your website is yours and nobody controls it but you. Once your premium ends, you need to activate just like we do for our school children monthly or yearly.

Thank you WA so far I am enjoying myself following every step in the training. I was thinking the niche free website that I created, would one be possible joined to a new domain that comprises many niche websites.

I wanna to know the end result so I can design it correctly from the start.

Thank you in advance for the response.

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

I want to have a web page with the niche - regaining your mobility and strength with the Total Gym. History, I have used the total gym for over a year. Prior to using the total gym I was having difficulty standing up from a seated position and I continually had pain in my legs and my arms. Since using the Total Gym I am able to easily stand up from a seated position and leg and arm (from bursitis). The pain eventually returns, if I do not maintain my workout regime. Total Gym has an Affiliate program and Amazon also has Total Gym equipment and accessories. Confused, how would I create the Website?

You could always call it "totalstrengthandmobility" or something like this?

There are literally hundreds of products you could promote if not thousands and millions within the fitness niche.

Strength and mobility could even be one "sub-section" of a total lifestyle/fitness blog sort of thing.

Thoughts/comments?

Thank you so much Mikepawlik. Your response is really helpful. I like "totalstrengthandmobility".

So I use totalstrengthandmobility as the domain name and then use what for the Website. I just researched my last name Oliva, and found it means "peace" in Greek. What do you think of a website name of She Knows Peace.

I'm sorry for just responding back. I was wondering why I had not received any responses. I found out today where to go for everyone's wonderful responses. All of you are great I am blessed to have signed up here.

Hi Mary,

In my opinion, you could literally call your website anything you like but it might not be obvious right away what your website is about if you call it She Knows Peace. Once you drove traffic there and people started knowing who you are you could get away with that but something that would let readers know what your website is about before they visit it would be beneficial in my opinion.

If you would like any other help feel free to reach out! I am fairly new at this but I am definitely up for helping out whenever I can. Have a wonderful day! :)

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

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?
Reply

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!
