1 of The Easiest Way to Build a Free Website

Some of the most popular questions I get about this are ‘how do I build a website?‘ and ‘how much does it cost?

The truth is there are lots of ways you can go about building a website these days and many reasons for doing so.

Maybe you want to start a blog, create niche websites of your own, or even for a local business or client. Whatever your reasons, the easiest way to build a free website guide will show you how to do just that.

What is the easiest way to build a free website?

Lets begin!

Some Basic Things You’ll Need

To have a working website there are four important things you must have.

  1. Domain Name
  2. Web Hosting
  3. Website Builder
  4. Content Management System

These four things are the building blocks to every single website on the internet today.

I’m not going to go crazily in depth for each of these things. However, I will outline what they are and give some important information about each of them.

What Does it All Mean?

Domain Names:

Domain names are essentially the website’s public address, for example in my case my domain name is

Picking a good domain name is important. This will affect your rank in search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo.

Keep it relevant to what your website is about unless you want to make your own brand e.g. Amazon, BMW, Microsoft, Nike, etc.

You should try your best to avoid using numbers and special characters in your domain name.

Also you’re typically better off going for .com if possible or .org / .net if the .com is unavailable.

Web Hosting:

Web hosting is a service provided to you by web hosting companies where they store all the files and information for your website.

It’s important to have a solid web host so your website will stay online and if you do run into a problem there will be good support to resolve any issues.

If you have a bad web host or the support is lacking, your website could go offline frequently and you could be waiting days or even weeks for a response.

Also it’s always a good idea to do a little research on them beforehand. As a result this makes sure you are looked after and the support is available when you need it.

There are many options for web hosting varying in price, from a free service, to a few dollars a month, or even a few hundred dollars a month.

It all depends on your own specific needs but today we will focus on the free services.

Website Builders:

These are the platforms that help you to actually build and design your site without manually editing the code (unless you choose to do so).

There are a lot of options for this both free and premium but I recommend SiteRubix because it uses WordPress, you can have your website fully operational in seconds, and is arguably the easiest way to build a free website in my experience.

Content Management Systems:

A content management system is the software that lets you create and manage the content (posts, pages, etc.) for your website.

I recommend WordPress as it is very user friendly, versatile, and has a myriad of options of free themes and add-ons available to you that will give you the edge and make your life a lot easier.

Building the Website

Buying your domain and the price of hosting can end up costing you a pretty penny, but I have seen many sites become successful even without a dedicated domain on a free platform like SiteRubix.

However, it’s always a good idea to get a dedicated domain later down the line like I did with this site.

You can build a free WordPress website right here by entering a domain of your choice in the box below!

It’s likely a lot of you have already heard of WordPress, and that’s not surprising. It is the most widely used website framework in the world.

The very site you’re on now was built with SiteRubix and WordPress!

Over the years a lot has changed and now anybody is capable of building a website and succeeding online.

The barriers present years ago that required people to have coding knowledge in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and the like to create websites are thankfully no longer an issue today.

Some great benefits to using WordPress

  • Very easy to install and set-up, just a simple click of a button when using the SiteRubix platform
  • Coding knowledge is not necessary to make a great site which means you can spend more time creating great content!
  • There are many different website templates or ‘themes’ that will make your website stand out from the rest
  • Thousands of free plugins and widgets that are easy to install and can do so much for your website
  • Incredible support and help from an active and friendly community

So there it is I hope you enjoyed my guide on the easiest way to build a free website.

  • I built a free website with a website builder company before because I wanted something that's simple and easy. Unfortunately, it turned out rather complicated and it seems like I am forever messing with designs/layout rather than actually writing a blog.

    I am planning to switch to WordPress and would like to know if SiteRubix can help with importing web content from my old website to a WordPress site.

    Looking forward to your reply. Thanks.

    • Hi Cathy, I'm sorry about your difficult experiences in the past while building your website. I would definitely recommend SiteRubix, it is an amazing platform and WordPress has such versatility to fit anybody's needs. As much as design and layout is important, content will always be king. Your priority should always be to provide your visitors with helpful, useful and valuable information, once you do that then the rest will fall in to place :)

  • I found a lot of good information. If I wasn't 't with Wealthy Affiliate already I would definitely be checking them out after reading your website. I have a question? Under Domain names you said not to use numbers or special characters. Why?

    • Hi John I'm happy you found my content informative :) As to the why for no numbers or special characters, it's harder to verbally communicate and when someone hears one of these domains it’s hard to know if the numbers are written out as words or are numeric. It affects word of mouth publicity and a domain with numbers or special characters can appear spammy to some people.

  • I've always wanted to build my own site but was under the impression it was quite complicated. After reading this post I'm confident it's something I would be able to manage even with my limited knowledge.

    Thanks for the info.

  • I used to believe that creating a website is complicated business until I tried your method. It took me about 5 minutes to do it and no coding knowledge necessary. Very good article, I'm sure it will help a lot of people. Keep up the good work! ;)

    • Hi there, thank you for your feedback I'm glad it helped and hopefully it will help many more in the future :)

  • Hey there! I'm planning to build a website but I'm scared to do it because I feel like that it's complicated. But after I read your article about how to build a website for free I;m thinking of doing it now. I found your article very informative and interesting to read. It's very helpful to me, a person who doesn't know a lot of stuff about creating website. Thank you for sharing this information.

    • Hey John, I'm happy you feel more confident now thanks for your input and if you need a hand with anything let me know :)

  • I think many people get confused when it comes to building a website. They think that we're back in the 90's where website building required a great deal of HTML coding knowledge OR a fortune to get one built by a professional.

    But by looking at your page, it's clearly not the case in this day and age of the internet. I think it's AWESOME that folks can now build websites extremely fast, easy, and FREE!

    I've wanted my own blog site for some time because I really want to build an affiliate marketing business. So your free SiteRubix website builder recommendation is just perfect! And with so many amazing benefits of using WordPress, it makes SiteRubix even more of a no-brainer for any aspiring digital Entrepreneur!


    • Thanks Neil, it's never been easier to get started and I'm glad it was of use to you. I wish you the best of luck in your endeavours! :)

  • Thanks for information. It looks like creating website it is not so complicated like I was thinking. Thanks one more time!

  • Thank you for the information! Many people become overwhelmed trying to get started with creating a website but like you explained it’s a lot easier when you know all the tools you need! Thanks again!
