Make your own website free! Easy, step-by-step instructions!

There is no reason to pay money to make your own website. Make your own website free? Yes, absolutely, and I am going to give you step-by-step instructions on exactly how to do that. The goal of this website is to educate you and give you the confidence to create a website and make money from it.

Let’s get into what type of website you want to build. We don’t want to put the cart before the horse. The very first step is thinking, “What type of website do I want to make?” In other words, what is the theme of your website, what kinds of information do you want to provide to your readers, or in marketer’s terms, what is your niche?

I want to let you know that this website is full of details on every aspect of creating a free website, filling it with content, and making money from it. Therefore, throughout this article, I will be referencing other articles that will dive into the particulars of the subject I am referencing. This will provide you with details and instructions, so if you are brand new to this, don’t worry.  I’m here to help and easily accessible anytime you need through email at

Choose your niche

You’ve probably given this some thought if you’re wanting to build a website. I want to encourage you to really think about this. Don’t just choose a niche like “electronics” or “headphones” or whatever just because you think there’s a lot of money in it. That’s not the right reason to build a site. You want to go with your passion. You can make money from any niche. Believe me, there are people out there who love just what you love and want to buy the things you would buy within that niche.

Your main goal when thinking about your niche is to do something you love. Something you enjoy. A subject you know a lot about or one that you want to learn about. You will be spending many, many hours researching and creating your content, so do yourself a favor and choose your passion.

Here is a great article I wrote all about choosing your niche, and I recommend that you read this article before you begin the process!



Free and Easy Website Platform

If you are new to this, or if you are an experienced builder, the WordPress platform is the way to go. I’ve tried so many platforms, and I’m telling you the WordPress platform is the easiest to navigate, there are beautiful, unique themes, and thousands of wonderful plugin widgets that you can install for free as well to make your website easy to navigate and add interest to it for your readers.

I realize this terminology may be new to you, but please don’t worry. I have an option for you that no only provides you with an absolutely free website (you actually get two for free), but this program will provide you with full training on how to set up your websites. Is that amazing or what? You get two absolutely 100% free websites with step-by-step training on exactly how to set them up!

Wealthy Affiliate Platform

This is the free platform I told you about above. There are two different programs through Wealthy Affiliate. The Start Plan (which you never have to upgrade from if you don’t want to, and it’s 100% free – no credit card required) and the Premium Plan (this plan is $49 monthly if you choose to upgrade, but if you upgrade within 7 days of joining, it’s only $19 for the first month, so you get a little discount in the beginning).

Here’s a little recap of the differences between the Starter and the Premium memberships so you can see what is offered to you if you ever do decide to upgrade. I am a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate. I joined, found great value, enjoyed doing this, and so I wanted all the benefits of the Premium membership. Take a look:


Walk-through of sign-up process

I realize many of you are new to this, and I was new to this at one point in my life, as well. I was very nervous to start because I felt like I didn’t know what I was doing. When I created this website here, I did it with the hope of helping people to overcome their fear, and to me, knowledge is power. Knowledge and information on how to do this can alleviate the anxiety that comes from starting a new venture.

You do not need to have any anxiety. Here is an article I wrote that will fully explain the sign-up process and how to set up your site. Remember, too, that inside the Wealthy Affiliate platform, you will not only have directions and instructions, but video walk-through tutorials to guide you every single step of the way. It couldn’t be made easier for you.

Born in Texas, raised in upstate New York, I have been marketing for my entire adult life.I have decided to share all the information I have gathered on what works in affiliate marketing, and what doesn't because I want to let the world know that working online gives you the freedom to work from anywhere, and that is exactly what I do!

Starting out can be tough, I know, so I will also be sharing lots of free resources to get you going.I am dedicated to providing this information to my readers, and I hope you always feel free to reach out to me.

Thanks for visiting my page!


  1. I can definitely say that learning to create a site on the WordPress platform has never been easier. The key to successfully setting up a website in order to grow a successful online business is finding the best training. Wealthy Affiliate has been absolutely amazing and I’ve managed to learn things I thought I’d never learn. The plus side is that I was able to learn so much and do it at my own pace, which is key to being able to grow your own business and there’s no need to rush or give up family or work (or school in my case) obligations in order to build something amazing!

    I’ve tried other programs in the past and was never able to wrap my mind around how blogging and earning money from said blog worked, but after much trial and error, I decided to start looking for a legitimate opportunity and training I could understand. Not only has Wealthy Affiliate helped me take steps toward my dream of working from home full-time, I’ve also gained a lot of new friendships with like-minded individuals!

  2. Thank you for sharing with us this great post on making a website for free.Building a website was a mystery for me until I found a great platform which gave me training on how to build it for free.Building a website is the start point to earn money online when we choose to be affiliate marketers.

    Choosing a niche was my complicated step I met when I was starting building my website.But as Wealthy Affiliate is a good platform with a supportive community,I arrived at understanding the point and did it.

    I recommend people to use Wealthy Affiliate if they need to make a website and host it withing WA.

  3. I have been wanting to start my own website for a very long time now. I was just scared and had no idea how this works so I didn’t create my own. After reading this article I think I’m finally ready to open My own website. This article gave me step by step instruction on what to do with my own website and what are the things I have to take care for having and running an successful online business. 

    Thank you so much for sharing this article with me.

  4. Thanks for this tip. I was always thinking of making a website but so far didn’t because of being afraid of the high cost that can get involved.

    Now that you offer this step by step guide and a platform where I can make a free website I think I’ll have a try. I looked at the free WIX sites once but these are too complicated for me to work on, I don’t have any experience.

    Do you have any idea what my niche should be about?

  5. Hey Babs,

    Great article!

    When I decided to launch an online business I wasn’t even sure about what I even wanted to do. I looked a bit online from some sites that promoted affiliate opportunities but there was something a little off about their promises. Too good to be true almost always is. I happened by chance on Wealthy Affiliate three years ago and can vouch fort being all that you are saying. 

    The best part for anyone not tech-savvy like me is that the training is phenomenal. What you mentioned about the importance of choosing a niche that will help you be successful is explained  in the training. 

    Another great thing: Since there are so many world-wide members anyone from anywhere can find answers very quickly whatever the question about their region in the world.


  6. Wealthy Affliate has  made it so easy to build a website. Not only is it free to start, but there’s the opportunity to build two websites. When I joined Wealthy Affliate, I was totally clueless as to what to do, I had no idea of what WordPress was all about, not did I understand how to use it.

     The step by step training is very easy to follow, all the tools are available to build your website and the support was really amazing. Anyone can make use of this wonderful platform. It really does speaks for itself.

  7. Wealthy Affiliate is my favorite program to start an online business. It is perfect for beginners because it walk you through every step you need to take to start and grow your business. It offers 24/7 support, chat room, classrooms plus lots of trainings and courses.

    What I like the most is the community, you have all the members, newbies and experts to help and motivate you when you need it.

  8. Your heading sums it up beautifully, Free easy, step by step instructions. Wealthy Affiliate has certainly proven to be all of that and more.  Anyone can sign up for that free membership and see for themselves all that you have outlined on this page.Once you sign up as a free member it does not take long before you realize the incredible value that is available within the program and so signing up as a paid member becomes a no brainer. 

    I am a premium member of WA and I have to say I continue to learn new things and hone my skills after 2 years working with the platform.

    1. Just the fact that you have been a member for two years is a testimonial to the legitimacy of this program and how beneficial it is to all affiliate marketers, new and experienced.  Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your comments, Judy!  – Babs

  9. Awesome guide as always Babs!

    If I had found your article sooner when I first started, I would have saved myself a lot of time in building my website as I didn’t know what platforms to use. Is there such as a niche being too specific? I often get that question and thinking back, it is much better to go after a niche where we feel confident at better than taking risks right.

    1. Wealthy Affiliate teaches that you can be as specific as you want.  My one word of advice would be to make sure the specific niche has products that the readers will want or need.  Selling products within your niche is the name of the game, so that is a key component.  – Babs

  10. Hi Babs – I really enjoyed reading this article and could definitely relate to not knowing where or how to start creating my own website.  I joined Wealthy Affiliate about two months ago and have found the training and support to be extremely helpful.  You have hit on the key points and provided all the necessary information for anyone else looking to create their own website.

    Nice job and best of luck to you,


  11. Great article, it really shows how easy it is to build a website these days.  It boils down to a few simple steps according to what you say here! So Wealthy Affiliate offers all of this for free?  It’s kind of hard to believe but I think I will give it a try.  After choosing my niche and theme will I have to pay for the maintenance of the site and other services or is it entirely free?

    1. It’s free to maintain your two free websites for as long as you like, but all the major benefits to really build your business are found in their Premium membership.  If you want to really work this as a business, invest the $49 monthly, it’s a business in a box.  Do it when you feel you can afford it, and until then you can build your content on your websites.  You can keep the Starter membership for as long as you need to.
