Learn how to build a website for free step by step and get free hosting as well as great support. Best of all no credit or debit card is required!
Technology has changed the face of website building.
If you were trying to build a website a few years back, it would have been tough.
It would probably have taken you weeks of sitting in front of your PC just to produce even a basic site.
If you had wanted a site that looked professional, then you would probably need to hire a web designer and that would have cost you thousands of dollars.
But that’s all changed…
Technology has advanced and now you can build a website yourself, with no prior experience, quickly and professionally.
So if you’ve never created a website before, don’t worry – you can now!
If you think it will be difficult, it won’t – if you can use a keyboard you can build a website!
Let’s get started building your website now!
The software we will be using.
The most user friendly and free website builder is the Siterubix domain builder provided by the guys at Wealthy Affiliate (also known as WA).

How to ask for help when you need it
The worst thing that could happen is that you give up because something didn’t make sense.
Don’t let this happen!
There are a number of ways that you can ask for help:
#1 Here on my website
You can always leave a question in the comment box at the foot of the page and I will answer it as soon as possible. There are no silly questions so just ask away!
#2 Ask me via my Wealthy Affiliate profile.
When you first set up your account I will have messaged you from my profile page. This message will show you how you can message me directly with any questions that you have. Never be scared of contacting me directly, I’m here to help as much as I can!
#3 Ask others for help
Within the system there are two great ways that you can use to ask others for help.
First of all there is the “Live Chat” option, which is a real time message system that lets people talk to each other and secondly there is the “Ask a question” feature, which puts your question onto everybody’s activity dashboard. Whatever method you use if someone knows the answer to your question they will let you know quickly, sometimes in minutes!
Here is a short video that shows the help facilities working in real time:
Specific help for each of the ten lessons.
I have prepared some extra help for each of the 10 lessons within the Get Started course but I haven’t reproduced them here for three reasons.
- They wouldn’t make much sense to you before you work through the related lesson.
- It’s really important to follow the steps in the correct order.
- Too much information presented at once can be confusing.
What I have done is set them up as individual pieces of training within the Wealthy Affiliate platform and I will send you the link for each one as you progress through the course.
As always please ask questions at any time, I really can’t stress that enough.
Even if you are just looking for confirmation of something that you feel you have understood correctly, please ask.
You will have my personal help throughout this process and I will answer any questions that you have as quickly as possible.
Worried about lack of experience building websites?
One of the most common concerns people have when first looking at building a website is their lack of experience. Many people still think that you need specialist PC or programming skills as a minimum in order to build a website.
This is not true!
Would you believe me if I told you that you can start from scratch and have a website live on the internet within 5 minutes?
I didn’t think you would, so let me show you!
In this video I show you how to set up a website within 5 minutes!
