How to build a website FREE

Websites come in all shapes and sizes, colors and designs. They cover myriad businesses, hobbies, passions, and pastimes. You understand that, but do you know how to build a website free?

A week doesn’t pass without someone saying to me, “Yeah, I’m thinking about getting my own website. But how?”

So here’s how.

For most people, the reason they’re not yet online is that they don’t know where to begin. And with so many choices around these days, the process of starting up a website can be really confusing.

It’s critical to make the right choices early on, so for newcomers to the online world, a free site can be a godsend.

The good news is that you can create your own website in less time than it takes to drink a cup of hot coffee. And it will cost you less than a cup of coffee.

Hard to believe?

Well, it’s true. You can be up and running in no time at all, and you can begin writing about sports, politics, or your own business, and adding pictures so that people landing on your site will take even more notice of what you are saying.

If this sounds too good to be true, don’t just take my word for it. Watch this short video and learn how to build a website free.

What do you think? Please let me know below!


  1. You are right! Wealthy Affiliate really gives a hands-on guide when building a website. Maybe because I was not technically savvy, it took me an hour to setup my website. But hey, an hour is way fast for me.

    From not knowing how to build a website to have a working website within an hour? I say that it is a miracle.

    • Thanks for that. Of course, once you set it up, there are bells and whistles to be added and strategies to be used, and Wealthy Affiliate has those covered too.

  2. Great review and great approach!! You did an awesome job here. Thank you for sharing and good luck!!

    • Cheers Brent. I hope it helps you.

  3. Hey Mike! I noticed you mentioned Wealthy Affiliate in this article. I totally agree on your claims about how good this “system” is. Even though there are a lot of scams out there, there are still a few of the legit ones left, and WA is definitely one of those sites! Do you have a review on Wealthy Affiliate? I’d love to hear your personal opinion on it.


    • Ah yes, Brandon. You can find my thoughts on Wealthy Affiliate on this very site here. It is worth a read, and in my opinion, and the opinion of many people I admire, worth a shot if you want to build for long-term success.

  4. Wealthy Affiliate really is a great community. At time i consider it a program because of the structure that beginners get when joining. But the community itself is very giving and supportive. There are many other programs out there, but WA i believe provides the best supportive community.

    Great post!

    • Thanks Jonathan. Apart from building websites quickly and in the right way, the pace of learning can be set by the student. It’s fun, one learns lots and the courses can be quite addictive. I’m about to move all my pre-existing sites over to WA and save a bucketload on hosting too.

  5. It really is amazing what you can get for free once you stop watching youtube videos and go to the right places. I love the step by step training to get set up and started running a website and business. Take care, Peter.

    • The other day, I heard someone say “In an age where there the information available is infinite, there are more illiterate people than ever.” Certainly, there are greater numbers of people who wish to find the easy way. The social media generation demands to know, but all too often they want to know things that are evanescent and ephemeral, not important and lasting. Yes, there are some fine free products. Wealthy Affiliate can teach you where to find more!

  6. Hello Mike,
    I must say, reading this gives me a nice feeling within. With all the scams out there, It is nice to have a program that you can try out for free and decide if you want to go forward with it or not. Good post!

    • Yes, I think we can all understand the reason for hesitancy to jump in eyes-closed and finger-crossed. There are no magic puddings, so a good look at a program is advisable. Heck, I looked for a long time before I dipped my toe into Wealthy Affiliate. Happily, the water was fine. It still is. Thanks Desron.

  7. Great advice! Thank you for sharing this awesome way of how to start a website! I have personally tried Wealthy Affiliate, in fact, that’s where I started my online journey, and now I already have 2 great websites up and running. Thank you again for sharing!

    • Thanks Liv. I am glad that Wealthy Affiliate worked out for you. Another success story!

  8. Great article! I absolutely agree that WA is great when you want to create a website. I’ve had other blogs in the past, but the information I’ve learned from this site is incredible and I never would have known any of it otherwise! highly recommended.

    • One thing I have learned is that the education never stops. Wealthy Affiliate opens up the inquisitive side of me and I am always seeking to learn more. Happily, there are plenty of answers for my questions, provided by a really knowledgeable and generous member community.

  9. Wow! Wealthy Affiliate sounds awesome! Based on that video I watched it looks super simple.

    It also looks like there’s quite a bit of educational material and seems like there might be some kind of community at Wealthy Affiliate.

    I have to say, the site when I first started looking at it seemed a little overwhelming. So, I have some questions…

    Does Wealthy Affiliate have a community? If so, can you tell me a little bit about it?

    Would I need to get a hosting company of my own, or does Wealthy affiliate help me with that too?

    • Hi Jack
      If you look elsewhere on my site, you will find more about the Wealthy Affiliate (WA) program. However, to answer your questions in short . . .
      It is SIMPLE to LEARN because the education side of things is laid out in a logical and easy to follow format.
      If you look at the whole spectre of WA, it might appear daunting, though I’ve always found it easier to take down a wall brick by brick than by trying to push it over.
      The WA community is unmatched for its willingness and ability to help. Here’s a quick link from a WA Member, who remembered WA during Thanksgiving.
      Finally, no more webhosting needed, as WA does it all for you.
      No such thing as a FREE lunch, though WA can provide FREE entry.
      Thanks for your interest.

      • Thanks so much for your super quick response! That’s what I was looking for, it sounds PERFECT! I’m going to go check out those other resources now…

        Thanks again!

        • Jack, I am happy to help, as are the thousands of others in WA.

  10. Hello Mike,
    Building a website today is technically pretty easy, as you don’t need to know coding or programming. But you do need someone to have your back and guide you through the world of online business. You need the right information in order to succeed and Wealthy Affiliate offers a lot of it.

    • Good point, Nikos. You are correct. Most will be able to figure out for themselves how to get online. However, to reach the goal you seek by adding an internet presence, you might need help unless you have been successful before. Even then, the online world changes quickly and I am glad that Wealthy Affiliate is there to keep me abreast of evolutions and revolutions.
