Starting your own website is a lot more easily than a lot of people think, you can have your website up and running in a manner of minutes and completely for free.
Let me show you how I got started with my first website.
What do you need to build a website?
Thanks to the technology you don’t need to know any HTML coding whatsoever to start your own website like the old timer did before, all you need is only a computer and an internet connection. Pretty much everybody has that or have access to it right?
The first step is to choose your domain name which means the name of the website, and there are two ways to do that.
The first choice you have is to buy a domain name. You can get one at GoDaddy or Namecheap those are the ones I prefer personally. The most popular are the ones ending with .com .net or .org and this cost around 10-13$ for a year. Cheap right? But, there is ways to get it even cheaper with coupons code with FatWallet. I bought my first one for about 1$ I’ll tell you a little bit later if that interested you.
The second choice you have is to get a domain name with siterubix and it is completely free. The only difference is that you don’t actually own the website and it’s going to end up with .siterubix.com. So if you wanna get started right away without having to buy it I recommend trying the siterubix website. You can always change along the way, meaning you can transfer your website to another domain name and actually own it, so it is a great way to get started.
Cheap domain name
So I’ve bought my first domain for about 1$ with coupon code, really simple, if you want to buy a domain from Godaddy what you do is write on google godaddy+fatwallet and it is going to give a lot of coupons to buy domain name really cheap.
The host is a web provider or a company where you store your files on their server. Now a good thing with Wealthy Affiliate is that they support the hosting as well. Instead of getting host with Hostgator or Godaddy which cost around 10$/months, it is included at WA. So it is another cost you don’t have to worry about when your are a member of the community at Wealthy Affiliate.
