Are you not looking to make a website of your own? Then you should!
Nowadays, making a website is something very easy to do. There are many platforms that offer “dummy proof” ways to create professional looking sites. Whether it is a website for your business or for a client, you have a lot of options and you can find a lot of information. I am going to show you how to make a free website and all the things you need, for it to be a good one.
The most important qualities for a website
When you search for information or for a product on a website, I’m pretty sure you would like to find your search fast enough and well-arranged. Luckily, there are many hosts and platforms you can find online.
In a professional website you should find the following qualities:
✔ Easy to Navigate
✔ Professional Design & Look
✔ Speed & Load Time
✔ Uses a CMS (Content Management System)
✔ Quality website content
If you take these 5 things into account while making your website, you’ll have a very successful (and profitabel) website. When making a website, you would want to know what to spend more time on, the design or the content? Check a few answers here.
You have the option to study about programming and stuff and make a website from scratch. This is going to take a lot of time before you can make one, because programming a website from scratch is not easy.
Or you could make a website using siterubix, where the website is made for you. All you have to do is select a theme and put in the content.
What is the best Content Management System ?
First of all, what is a content management system? The words explain themselves, and that’s what WordPress is. You’ve probably heard about WordPress, one of the world’s most widely used website framework. In fact, this website was built using WordPress. I also used Wix to make a website, but WordPress is so much more interesting and easier to use.
Using this framework has many benefits such as:
- No HTML, no code, no need for some advanced knowledge
- Typically very easy to install and set-up (click of a button at Wealthy Affiliate)
- Over 1,400 different website templates to choose from
- One click install over 10,000 “add on” features and website functionality
- Lots of support and help within the community
What is hosting a website?
Now, you have the website, you put in the content; what you now need is a good host. You can find many hosts online, some of them are cheap and some of them are expensive. Now you probably ask yourself, What is hosting a website ? or How to host a website ? Hosting your domain means making your website accessible online 24/7. This happens through an Internet Presence Provider.
How much does it cost to host a website you say? There are many hosts where you can host your website “for a very low price” like 99 cents, but it’s not as interesting as it looks. Some of them will increase your costs when your website value increases. At Wealthy Affiliate you can buy and host a domain name (.com/.org/.net/…) for only $13,99/ year, and it stays that way! It includes the domain name, the hosting, website protection, anti spam,… basically all you need to host your website in a professional manner, no extra’s needed. And once again, it stays that way.. unlike other hosts. Even when your website is worth $100 000 or more.
You can also make a totally free website, with free hosting! For this you can find a link below, but first read how I made My own website.

How I made TheWealthyTourist.com
As you can see, I choose WordPress to make my websites, not just for fun, but I make my money using those websites. I started out free, and I can say that you’re perfectly able to make a website totally free of charge and no credit card needed! Because I’m sure that you had an experience once where it said “free” but you ended up giving your credit card details and getting billed the next month. If not, then keep it that way.
At Wealthy Affiliate, where I learned everything about marketing and about how to make money online free, you have two options and they are both interesting. When you click on “Create an account today” you just sign up for free without any charge of any credit card information. I have the information for you down here:
