How to Set Up a Website FREE

In my article, How to Get Started as an Affiliate Marketer, I talk about how Wealthy Affiliate taught me how to set up a website FREE.  In this article, I’ll show you exactly how that works – what the steps are – so you can see just how easy it is to learn how to set up a free website.

Signing Up for Training is FREE

When you sign up with Wealthy Affiliate, the starter membership is FREE.  And not for a limited time – it’s free for as long as you want it to be.  You only pay when and if you decide you want to go further and get more advanced training (or if you want to have more websites – Premium Members get unlimited websites). With the Starter Membership, you get two free websites. You’re on one of my websites right now.

It’ll only take you a few seconds to sign up with Wealthy Affiliate and you will not have to enter a credit card number or be obligated in any way.  You can enter the site and go through a whole bunch of video training classes – all for free!

How to Create a Website in 30 Seconds!

The first thing you should do if you want to learn how to set up a website free, is watch Wealthy Affiliate owner, Kyle’s video on How to Create a Website in 30 Seconds.

This, as you will see, is exactly the kind of step-by-step video training I told you about in my first article.  Wealthy Affiliate literally walks you through every single step, as you’ll see in this video.



See what I mean?  Easy, wasn’t it?!  And that’s just one short sample of the training you get at Wealthy Affiliate.  Kyle is a wonderful teacher.  He goes slow, and you get to see on the screen exactly what he’s doing.  And what I love about the training videos is you can click pause any time you want.  You can stop to take notes, or stop to do the task he’s talking about. And you can even rewind the video a little if you didn’t quite get something.  The video training, in my opinion, is the best way to learn this stuff.  I don’t know about you, but I need step-by-step instructions!

All websites at Wealthy Affiliate are hosted on the most secure, reliable, and powerful hosting platform in the WordPress world! WordPress is one of the most popular website hosting platforms.  I’ve found it super easy to use, easy to learn, and it’s so easy to get help if you do have questions or get stuck.

Creating your first free website is just the beginning.  Wealthy Affiliate is a full on training website on How to Become an Affiliate Marketer.  In other words, it’s a site that teaches you how HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE AND HAVE YOUR OWN BUSINESS.  Does that interest you?  Maybe you came to this article just because you want your own website.

Maybe it’s not to make money – maybe it’s for a charity you are trying to help, or maybe you’re just trying to spread the word about something you’re passionate about.  Maybe you’ve published a book and want your own author’s website – or maybe you’re already a business owner and want your business to have a website.

No matter what the case, the training at Wealthy Affiliate is beyond valuable to you.  They will show you not only how to create the website, but how to set it up, organize it, make it look fantastic – and most importantly, how to get traffic!  After all, what good is a website if no one ever goes to it?

As a FREE Starter Member at Wealthy Affiliate, you get free access to two separate training programs.  The first one is called Get Started Here, and it consists of 10 lessons – each very similar to the one you just saw.  Kyle teaches all the classes, and each lesson includes a step-by-step video like the one you just watched, plus a written lesson – and at the end of each lesson, you are given specific tasks to perform.

So each day (or however often you have the time to work on your training), you open the new day’s lesson, read the lesson, watch the video, then do the steps Kyle has just taught you how to do. As you go along in the training – guess what’s happening?….you’re BUILDING A WEBSITE and starting your own online business!


The second training program that’s offered in the free starter membership is called Affiliate Bootcamp. This is where Kyle teaches you, again, in 10 step-by-step lessons, how to build a website specifically to promote Wealthy Affiliate. You’re on my Affiliate Bootcamp website right now!


What Have You Got to Lose?

I hope you’ll check this out and give it a try. Go to the links I’ve given you, check things out.  Watch Kyle’s video on how to set up a website in 30 seconds.  You’ll see it’s super easy to get training to create your own website, and to make money from it if that’s what you choose.

  1. Hi Debra,

    Really great post you have written here. It was a really easy read and contained all the information I wanted to know about. I see that you mention Word Press here and I was just wondering if there is a difference between WIX and WP? I have been seeing a lot of ads promoting WIX.

    1. This is the first I’ve heard of WIX. I’m sorry – I’m not familiar with it. Thanks for the kind compliments on my article. 🙂

  2. When I first looked into website building a good number of years ago, it was an impossible task unless you hired a web-designer which cost a lot of money!

    Reading through your article and actually watching the video, I’m gobsmacked to see just how quick and easy it is to build a free website. 🙂

    I’ve heard a lot of positive things about WordPress too, so Thanks for the help and guidance here.
