OK, awesome. You now have your niche, in other words, the direction for your brand & business. That is great and don't worry about this not being "perfectly clear" at this point, as you move forward the pieces of the puzzle are going to come together.

Starting with a big piece today, your website. We are going to be taking our niche idea and turning it into a tangible business starting with your website.

Building a Website Ain't Scary, It's FUN!

Building a website sounds like a "scary" process, but fortunately you have access to the most advanced, yet simplistic website platform in the world here at Wealthy Affiliate. We pride ourselves as a technology company here at Wealthy Affiliate and we are the industry leaders in the website development space.

I am not going to toot our horn any longer, I would rather you experience the website builder and platform for itself. The first step today is going to be building your website, which will literally take you less than 30 seconds.

Click the SiteBuilder link

within the menu, and you are going to be ready to rock here (and complete the next task).

Below I have included a "Building Your Website in Under 30 Seconds" video walking you through the Website Platform (also known as SiteRubix) here at WA and showing you how quickly and efficiently you can build a website here at Wealthy Affiliate.


Task 1: Build Your Website

Your website is your foundation of your business. It is where all of your traffic is ultimately going to come to, where you are going to build brand and trust within the industry, and where you can promote products/services and generate $$$!

The SiteBuilder platform here at WA is the most simplistic, yet advanced in the industry. It is going to take less than 30 seconds to get a fully operational, profit ready Wordpress website up and running online.

There are 4 steps in the website build process, that I am going to walk you through here. To access the SiteBuilder and EVERYTHING related to your website, you will simply click the light blue "SiteRubix" button in the main menu.

Step 1: Choose the Kind of Website

There are really TWO options here, on a FREE website or on your OWN domain. Ideally, you will have your own domain, but that can come with time.

You can "register" your very own domains right within Wealthy Affiliate using our state of the art SiteDomains platform, which will allow you to instantly set-up your own domain for your own use.

If you are just starting out as a Starter member, you will be building a website on the .siterubix.com domain, which is a completely free website. You can build and host your own FREE website as a Starter.

As a Premium member, you can build and host up to 10 websites (including websites on your own domains). As a Premium Plus+ member, you can build and host up to 50 websites (including websites on your own domains). That is more than adequate to drive many multi-million dollar businesses over time and our hosting platform is industry leading in terms of speed, security, and reliability...all critical factors to running a successful online business.

For the sake of this training, we are going to be choosing "On a free domain".

Do know that within the Premium membership, you can easily MOVE a free .siterubix.com button to a registered domain (one you own) using the "Premium Only" MOVE feature. So by all means start off with a free website and then down the road you can easily move it to your own domain.

Step 2: Choose a Domain

Remember last lesson when I chose my "niche". In this step, I am going to be choosing a name for my website and placing it in the "domain name" field. This is because this will be my website URL and my brand moving forward.

As you can see below, I have added my brand "how to lose belly fat today" into the domain field.

When you type in your domain, it will let you know if it is available or not. In my case it was, but if your first choice is not available simply do another search until you find a domain name that works for you.

You cannot put spaces in your domain name, hence why my domain is "howtolosebellyfattoday".

Step 3: Choose a Website Name

The name of your website should match your domain, but it just needs to be grammatically correct (with proper spacing). You can see below my example of this:

Domain: basketballskillsanddrills.siterubix.com

Title: Basketball Skills and Drills

It is as simple as that. Don't overthink this step, your title will be the same as your domain.

Step 4: Choose a Design

The last step is choosing a "look" for your theme. As a Starter member you will have access to ONE theme that has been hand picked for quality, speed, security, and overall theme design.

As a Premium Member though you will have access to over 4,134 designs (as shown below) or your website and there are always new designs being added to this daily. These are referred to as "Themes".

Choose a design that you like.

Click on the design you like, and then you will be able to build your site.

SiteRubix, a Next Level Website and Hosting Platform.

You are going to notice that there are many other website features allocated within the SiteRubix menu. I don't want to eat up too much of your time here, but it is important that you understand the incredible benefits of the SiteRubix platform.

The powerful hosting you have access you here is unparalleled in the Managed Wordpress hosting industry. We truly specialize here in providing a secure, robust and FAST platform for you to run your website.

To make your sites secure and fast, we have some SiteRubix EXCLUSIVE technologies to make sure your websites are operating at lightening speeds, but also in a very secure way that protects you from hackers, spammers, and all forms of erroneous attacks.

Kyle, to be sincere, you made me feel I'm in another world completely. Why? You made everything simple and easy for me. You inspired my writing spirit. You sparked up the fire in me and made me go back to what I have put on the back burner some years ago. Thanks so much for this. You are a godsend to me. More grace.

You see, I'm using WordPress to write my content, but the problem I have now is Privacy Policy page editing becausee WordPress has already provided a copy of it, but I'm just thinking of how to come about editing this perfectly, professionally. What could you do to assist me, please?
AbieAJ Premium Plus
You can use the one in site content.


Once done you can publish to your site, it is typically a page.
Oh yeah, thank you so much here.
I’m just staring and I’m feeling very inspired by what I have learned so for. I’m very passionate about hair color and want hair color tools to be my niche. Like tint brushes and foiling combs foils and clips etc every tool you need to color hair for professionals. What do you guys think of that as a niche?
Newme202 Premium Plus
That is very possible. You need to narrow down your search and specify what type of hair are you referring to?
countrylife Premium
Like your niche, having a terrific day?

Hi! I'm new here and I'm now undergoing my Entrepreneur Certification Training. Kyle mentioned that class training programs are held every Friday night. Are these class trainings recorded for replay for the sake of those who miss the classes? I work late shifts, so I will likely miss these classes unless they are recorded for replay for night owls like me.
AbieAJ Premium Plus
Hi, it may seem you are referring to Jay's live webinars those can be viewed by Premium and Premium Plus members.

However yes all live webinars can be replayed again and again.

Welcome to WA and our community.

Thanks for responding, Abie! I later got this answer when I was reading up the offers for Premium members. I'm definitely going to sign up for it soon.

I think it is better to focus on a single niche to promote in your website as it will get you more expert in that particular niche and the message you want to convey to your audience. I was like you before. I thought of another niche to promote in my website but later on I realise to just focus on one and make good at it.
Hello please i need help here.
This is my website name and doman (Ligesiterubix) please is this website good name to pomote Baby niches?
Praxides Premium
Hi CSoni, I think it's good to have a website name that is relevant to your niche or with a word or two related to your niche. Also something easy to spell and remember. It's good to register with a .com
Hope this will help. God bless

Hello if I delete my website I can still have the opportunity to build another free one here on the platform, help.
I thought that the video was very interesting to watch and it makes me want more info and to truly think about why people haven't done this before in their life because every time I think about every company that I have work for that's gone out of business and that I have busted my butt for from the bottom up to get to the top as in retail and as in management to have somewhat of a lifestyle to have to keep starting over because they either go out of businesses or lose a store General Manager and you still haven't moved up the line at all makes you truly think about what I have really lost in the 38 long hard years doing that time frame now. I would like to say thank you to Everyone here for the opportunity and I really appreciate it and thank you for inviting me to this wonderful community and family of WEALTHY AFFILIATE Community.
