So, you want to learn about WordPress? WordPress is an amazing way to quickly and efficiently create beautiful websites enriched with functionality. Back in the day, I used to use Adobe DreamWeaver to develop websites. I developed some great websites with it but it was necessary to know some coding to accomplish all that you needed.
With WordPress, you do not need any programming skills and you can create a stunning website proficiently LIKE A BOSS!!
Anyone at any level can do this! Climbing the mountain like the picture below does not look easy but setting up your WordPress website is … YES!
WordPress is an open-source content management system that was developed in PHP and MYSQL. WordPress includes a plugin style architecture with a template system in which to build your website. In order to function, WordPress will have to be installed on a web server and that can be part of an internet hosting service that supports WordPress.
The hosting will cost you on a monthly basis. But you can get a free WordPress website plus hosting and easy installation completely free from Wealthy Affiliate. Just enter in the name of what you want the name of your website to be and SiteRubix will walk you through building your website step by step.
WordPress is free and extremely easy to use through Wealthy Affiliate. It takes only a couple of clicks to install WordPress and pick a theme through Wealthy Affiliate. You can install WordPress with hosting companies but they will charge you a hosting fee. Wealthy Affiliate will host 2 websites absolutely free.
You can set up your WordPress website absolutely free and in less that 30 seconds.
It explains it all in the video below.
Next, I am going to walk you through the steps of building your own website. This is such a great way to learn about WordPress. I hope you are enjoying it. It makes it easier to be dedicated to something if you enjoy it also. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the training I have received from Wealthy Affiliate University about WordPress and about building my own business online.
Now it is your turn to take an inside sneak peek so you can learn about WordPress too! Here we go!
Click the link below to take you to the SiteRubix page. SiteRubix is powered by Wealthy Affiliate and this is where you will build your free websites. Exciting! You are on your way!
When you click on the link above it will take you to the page below. Below is a screenshot.
Choose a name for your website and type it in the blank to see if it is available just like the screenshot below. If the name that you choose is not available, try something else. This is your chance to be creative! If the name that you type in the blank is Available, you will see the word Available to the right as pictured below.
If the green button is showing that your name is Available, then you are in business!
Click Build My Free Website as pictured on the screen above!
You will see an image that says… “Hold tight, we’re preparing your website”. This should only take seconds.
Then, you will be taken to a screen that looks like the image below in Step 4.
Next, you will be able to choose the kind of website that you want to build. If you do not have your own domain right now, do not worry!
Select On a free domain. You can always contact support within Wealthy Affiliate to have them help you transfer it to a domain that you own later. It is perfectly fine to build a website on a free domain. In fact, that is what I did initially with the website that you are on right now!
example of a SiteRubix Domain: bestwebsites.siterubix.com
Now, you are getting to the fun part!
Fill out the form as noted below (with your own website name of course!)
Search through the thousands of themes to find one that suits your business and the way that you want your website to look. To narrow down the themes, I like to put Responsive Themes in the search box which means themes that will look good on a mobile phone.
After you choose your theme, click… “Click here to build this Site” as noted above.
Now, your website is being built and installed and you will get the message below!
When your website installation is finished, you can log into your website and change the pictures, colors, add some blog posts or whatever you want to do. It is all yours to do with as you wish!
After your website installs, you will see a screen that looks something like the one below.
YOU DID IT!!
