Baby Boomers Are Invited To Create A Free Website

Be Sociable, Share!

I would like to invite other Baby Boomers who want their own website to test drive this free website builder.  This is exactly how I started and, 10 months later, I have a website I am very proud of and am starting to make some extra money from.

And right on the heels of signing up, you are going to be introduced to the Certification Training and to a great community that supports and encourages one another.  Another huge plus…spamming within this community is a definite no-no.

No experience?  No problem!  This website builder was made for you.

Highlights

You actually receive two free websites that rely on the trusted WordPress platform and are hosted on state-of-the-art servers with 24/7 support with back-ups of your website.

These websites are sub-domains of the WordPress Express platform hosted at Wealthy Affiliate and are kept optimized for your convenience; this includes protection from hacking and malware.

Your website will be responsive and mobile friendly…did you know that 50% of all internet surfing is done from cell phones and tablets?  You can rest assured that your site will be viewable on all devices.

You will have the ability to select from multiple free themes, depending on the look you want to develop for your website.  And if you decide you want to change themes then it’s easy to install and activate a new one with just a few clicks.

Unlike websites hosted at WordPress, these free websites allow you to add and install plugins to help you create the website you envision.  Caution though, some plugins may contain viruses or require excessive load time; Wealthy Affiliate monitors these to ensure your site is functioning at its optimum.

What You Will Need To Start

Select Your Website Name

As you will note in the form above, you can immediately select your website name and will be notified, as you type, if the name is available.  Because this is a “smart form” it will also notify you if you have typed in something incorrectly.  You will then need to click the blue “Build it Now” button.

Note: ensure that your website name is typed in as one word…no spaces.

You will be taken to the following screen:

SiteRubix Make Account

Set Up Your Free Account

You will need to set up a free account and will need to enter:

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Email address
  • Password (make sure to save this)
  • Choose a username (will be used inside the Wealthy Affiliate community only)

You will also see where you are in the process as you create your website:

  1. Choose domain
  2. Create account
  3. Build your site

Now you want to click the green “Create Account & Continue” button.

Build Your Website

You are now taken inside Wealthy Affiliate to the website builder page where you can now create your free website.  You will see this screen:

SiteRubix Build Website

  • Step 1: The builder page will be pre-populated with the domain name you chose.
  • Step 2: Type in the title of your website, with spaces now
  • Select your theme (again, remember, this can be changed later so don’t spend too much time finding the “perfect” one now)

Ready!  Now you can click the “Build my Website” button and you will see a pop up telling you to “hold on…we are building your website”.

Your Admin Page

Once your website is build you will be taken to your Admin Page where you will find all the details you will need to log into your Dashboard and start adding to your site.

Just a few important notes:

  • Your username is “admin”, which you can change if you would like
  • Your password is created for you, which you can also change
  • Please keep both of these safely stored as you do any other usernames or passwords that you may have

You can access your admin page within Wealthy Affiliate at any time by going to the blue “Websites & Hosting” tab in the left column.  This will take you to your website(s) page and you will see the “Details” tab, which will open your Admin Page.

That’s It!

You now have your free website ready to go; whether you want to blog, start an online business, do education, or whatever your passion might be.  If you’re ready to build your website then click here.

…actually, it’s the beginning.  You have now started your online journey with your own website and the possibilities are endless.

Need Training?

It’s important to note that not only do you get a free website but you also get free training, you are not left wondering what to do next.

If you would like to know more of what is available to you then please read this review of Wealthy Affiliate; the training and support are listed.  Level 1 Certification Training is available to all new members.

Do Sub-Domains Get Traffic?

It’s important to note that, yes, this is a sub-domain but they are powerful tools in the online world (Google’s Blogger for instance).  But if you would like to read a success story then I invite you to read the following: “Siterubix Sites Can Get Traffic.  Boy Can They Get Traffic”.

Thanks for reading.

    • Thank you for your kind words. This site has truly been a labor of love, which also means I get frustrated with it sometimes 🙂 But overall, you are right, this is my passion and I’m always trying to improve the user experience.

  2. Not very often do I see someone doing into such details on how to set up a free site. very nice work. I wish others learn from your example.
