Hi, everyone! It’s Halyna. In this post, I will guide you on how to build your own website free of cost.
Many of you might be a bit scared of the entire process, but let me assure you, it is very easy, whether you’re an inexperienced student, retired person, or a stay-at-home-mom. Everybody can do it.
I will walk you through building your website on the WordPress platform, one of the biggest and most ultimate publishing platforms in the world.
If you reached our website and you’re reading this blog now, you probably want to build your own business and earn money. Here are some important steps you’ll need to know while building your business.
- How to choose a niche
- How to name your business and which domain name to choose

- Choosing keywords
- How to do SEO for your site (Search Engine Optimization)
- How to get a high ranking on Google and other search engines.
Here’s how to build your own website free of cost! Let’s do it together!
The process consists of 6 basic steps:
1. The first step is to create your domain name. After, you will see information on the right side if it’s available. If not, that means the domain you chose is already in use. If it is available, click on the button: ”Build it Now”.
You will see the following window:
2. Now, what you need to do is fill out your details for creating an account.
3. After creating an account, you will have three options. Choose the appropriate button, in your case it will be a first one; click on it, and you will see the following menu.
4. Fill out the domain name again (it cannot be changed after, it can only be deleted)
5. Enter a title for your website (this can be changed after from your back office).
If your domain name is redshoes.siterubix.com, for example, your title will be “Red Shoes.”
6. Choose a design for your website. As a free account holder, you will have 12 templates to choose from. If you’d like to choose from more templates, you must upgrade your free account.
Once you choose a template, press the “Click Here to Build This Site” button, and it’s done. Your website is ready!

By creating your website with WA, you’ll also be able to use the free step-by-step training on how to build your business from A to Z.
By A to Z, I mean complete training including the most important part, how to drive free traffic to your website. Your website can be magically beautiful, and your content can be incredible, but without using the correct keywords, Google will not be able to find your website. You have to navigate Google to your site. Remember, Google is not a human; it is a robot with an algorithm.
Questions you may have:
You must be asking why your domain name is domainname.siterubix.com. It’s because you are registering for a free domain.
If you want a domain name like domainname.com, you have to pay for it.
You might also be wondering if it looks bad to have a domain name with this extension.
The answer is no. If you start running your business and decide to go for .com extension, you can easily change it!
I recommend using a free domain name for those who don’t have much experience or just want to give the platform and hosting server a try. It’s also beneficial in case you decide to change your niche or domain name. You can simply delete it from the system. If you are sure about your business, I firmly recommend that you buy a domain name with a .com extension.
So what is the next step?
The next step is activation of your plugins and adding content to your website so that Google can index it, and you will be ranked. You might want to see this navigation:
