At this stage of the course you have chosen your niche. Now we are going to show you how to take this niche and create your very own website... for FREE within Wealthy Affiliate :)

First we want to explain the difference between a Free website and a website that you OWN.

Your Own Website vs. A Free Website

Having your own domain name is ideal and gives you a huge competitive advantage when it comes to succeeding online. For example, if you owned your own domain it would look something like this...

www.yourwebsite.com

To host your own websites here, you have to be a Premium member.

When starting out it is not 100% necessary as we do provide TWO free websites to you as a Starter member. At Wealthy Affiliate we have one of the top Website Builders in the world called SiteRubix (you find it under the SiteRubix link in the main menu). This allows you to easily install both free websites and if you are a Premium member, websites on your own domain.

You can actually register domains here within Wealthy Affiliate as well through the SiteDomains platform as both a Starter or Premium member.

Today you are going to create a free website targeted to the niche that you have chosen in the previous lesson.

Choosing Your Domain Name...

When you create a free website today, you will choose a siterubix.com extension (subdomain). I suggest choosing something that is highly relevant to your niche.

For example, if your niche was "Macbook Air Cases", your domain name would be:

macbookaircases.siterubix.com

And your website name would be:

Macbook Air Cases

As a Free member here at Wealthy Affiliate, you get 2 free websites, so If you make a mistake initially, you can always choose another one in the future and you can delete ones that you don't want. In other words you can install/delete over and over again and have up to 2 websites hosted on our state of the art web hosting for absolutely nothing. They are free!

***As a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate you to host up to 50 websites (25 own domains, 25 free .siterubix.com websites) on our state of the art "managed" wordpress hosting platform. This includes unlimited email accounts, free SSL, , premium monitoring and security, access to our SiteComments, SiteHealth, and SiteFeedback platforms and 24/7/366 website support.... meaning you can create an army of successful sites for one or many niches!


Task 1: Watch the Video on Setting up Your Website using SiteRubix

Below you will find a training video specifically showing you how to create a website at Wealthy Affiliate using our easy-to-use website builder, SiteRubix. It really is simple and it will take you no more than a few minutes to get your very first website up and running.

DISCUSS THIS VIDEO HERE: Building Your Website - Get Up and Running With This Walkthrough

With the website builder here at Wealthy Affiliate you can choose from 12 awesome website themes (templates) as a Starter member and all websites are pre-installed with 5 of the most powerful plugins. As a Premium member you have access to over 2,400 theme choices, and unlimited combinations of plugins and setup options!


Task 2: Set-up Your Website Using SiteRubix

You will find the SiteBuilder along with everything else associated with your websites (passwords, profiles, feedback, site health, email accounts, and support) within "SiteRubix" link in the Premium Services menu to the left.

Upon mousing over this menu, it will give you several options. To build your website you can either click on the SiteBuilder (takes you directly there) or you can click on SiteManager, where you can also initiate the SiteBuilder from.

You will pay $49 because the special offer only lasts a certain amount of time

Great lesson. I love the information Jaaxy gives. Unfortunately though, the countdown of searches isn't entirely correct in my case. I performed one search and the countdown for the free searches dropped for more than 5. Bit of a bummer, but I got enough data to make a start :)

Now on to the next lesson!

If you have been typing for some time and haven't left the page you might want to refresh your page

@ademichaels - probably because you have not yet added the new pages to the navigation menu.

Go to Appearances > Menus

In the Menu section, first create a new menu and name it.

Next select Pages from the left column and drag the pages
you want to appear in the menu over to the right column.

Use the WA search bar to find "create menu" and you will locate
several tutorials that show you this process. ~Jude

Hi Ade you need to make sure you have 3 things going on here.

1 your pages are published and not still in draft mode http://easywpguide.com/wordpress-manual/saving-and-publishing-content/

2 and 3 You need to have a menu setup and added to the 'Manage locations' http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/how-to-add-navigation-menu-in-wordpress-beginners-guide/ because some themes have multiple menu points so WP needs to be told which goes where for it to appear in the appropriate place.

If this is not what you are looking for then pls post back and give us some more info/background as to what you feel your issue is.

Best wishes

Neil

Hi, Kyle. (Feb 23, 2017)

Thought I should take a minute and give you a "heads up." (I would've sent a private msg, but wanted to include an img, which I can't do in PMs.)

I got 404 (page not found) msgs for your "About Me" and "Privacy Policy" pages.

For the http://howtolosebellyfatfast.siterubix.com home page, I got this: (see attached img.)


Sharon

EDIT: I'm assuming the siterubix links don't work any more because you've moved the site to .com.

Any chance of getting an updated lesson? Or, maybe just some updated links on this one?

Hi, Jude.

(How often do you get people singing "Hey Jude" to you and does it get annoying?) lol

Ty for the link. I'm actually repeating this training, just don't remember the siterubix links not working the first time I went through it.

Thank you for reaching out, though. I appreciate it!

EDIT: And that link may help others as well, so thank you for posting it.
