OK, you have chosen your site URL, your site name and your theme. Now what?

BUILD!

You should now be on the page to build your actual site. This is basically a page that shows you preview of what you have just specified you wanted your site to look like. If everything looks good to you, the next step is going to be clicking the"Build Website" button.



Upon clicking this button it will take 30 or so seconds to install and build your site for you. Once the engine is done churning together your site, you are going to get a pop-up that will give you all the "Details" for your site.





This gives you your website URL (where you can find it online) as well as your login details to the WP Adminstration area of your site (where you go to edit your site).

Your Website = The LIVE URL
Administration Page = Where you go to log into your admin
Username: The username you use for admin
Passowrd: The password you use to log in

Here is my example "iPhone 5 Cases" site if you want to check it out...


That is it. You are all set-up. In the next lesson I am going to give you a quick overview of how you can manage your sites.

Great add for WA! You guys keep evolving, and it is awesome. How easy it is now for someone to get their first site online and learn the ropes without spending any money on domains and stuff. You guys kick arse!

Yeah, that is the absolute goal...to take some of the major initial hurdles and risks out of getting rolling. I think that once people see that they can do this by getting to touch and feel something (in this case there own site), it will lead to much greater forward progress!

Thanks for your feedback!

Kyle,
You have explained and illustrated this very well. Thank you. I am going to share this with my new WAer. It will help him tremendously. This resource is also something I can use to show someone who is thinking about trying the 10-day free trial, but needs encouragement as to how easy it is to create a website.
I am glad you are offering free websites. This will give me a place where I can take the time I need to convert one of my big 'old Site Rubix' sites. I checked my 'old' Site Rubix site out on a mobile device and it needs some cosmetic help.
Thanks again for the efforts you and Carson put into WA. You really demonstrate your passion to help all of us succeed. George

You should definitely start moving moving your old site over to a new framework. There are many sites (wordpress themes) now that have mobile versions which is great if a good deal of your traffic is from mobile devices.

Thanks for your feedback. and your appreciation. We are and will always continue to evolve WA to become better and better to members.

Very nice breakdown Kyle. Its all so easy to set up really. In regards to the themes available are the best ones listed first or just a jumble that one has to sift through to see what themes are relevant?

Typically the most current themes are the ones on the first couple of pages. You can go through and favourite your best themes if you like. Just because they are on the first page does not mean they are the "best" themes, but it means they are some of the latest.
