Build Your Own Free Websites!
You can build your own free websites and also have a free domain name for each site, using the WordPress system for creating websites.
In addition to this your sites will be fully hosted for free.
There are now platforms (ways of building websites) that offer people who are new to creating websites the opportunity to build smart professional looking sites. You do not have to have technical skills or knowledge or be a programmer.
I am going to show you how you can quickly and easily create your own completely free websites that are fully hosted. You can choose from a number of free themes or for a modest cost choose from 1400 themes.
The theme is just a general style and structure that your website will have that fits in with your content and the style in which you wish to present your messages to visitors. The theme gives you the skeleton of your site upon which you add written content to flesh it out and bring it to life.
There are platforms on the internet that cost nothing or are relatively inexpensive to join that have huge less obvious costs. I took over the role of webmaster for a local club that I am a member of. I discovered that the platform that was used was enormously complicated and would be suitable for a website for a government agency or a huge corporation.
My findings were that I could get help and support if I paid the owners of the platform software program thousands of dollars! I would with this in mind caution you against such programs that are designed for huge businesses that have full time webmasters who have made a career out of building high complexity websites.
The Key Components Of A Quality Website.
Your website is your “shop window” through which internet visitors view what you have to say and offer. The quality of the presentation of your “shop window” will have a major impact upon the perceptions that visitors have upon the material that you are presenting to them. They are in real terms your internet guests who should be treated with respect and courtesy at all times.
You also need website hosting which does at first blush sound quite complicated. However, this is merely the place that stores your website and makes sure that it is presented quickly and efficiently to visitors to your site.
There are other characteristics that make the difference between a high quality visitor experience of a website and a poor one.
- Easy User Friendly Navigation
- Uses a Content Management System (explained below)
- Speed & Upload Time
- Professional Feel & Look
- Premium Quality Website Content
If you can incorporate these key characteristics into your website you will be well on the way to having a very profitable and successful website. To do this you will need a user friendly system that takes the heavy lifting out of the process.
I would recommend using WordPress, which is the system that I have used to create this website. You can as well as making money with your website have a lot of fun building and developing it. You can give your site your own unique personal stamp.
Why WordPress Is A Wise Move.
It is likely that you have already heard of WordPress as it is probably the world’s most widely used website platform.
The beauty of it is that anyone can now build a website. Building a website is no longer just the domain of computer whiz kids. I am a baby boomer and do not have a technical background. I have found the WordPress framework to be accessible and very user friendly. The system can be used by anyone around the world who has an internet connection.
I really like the fact that it is very easy to create content for your webpages using the WordPress system. You add content in much the same way as do when you create a Microsoft Word document. The icons for adjusting the font, colors and text size etc are very similar to those that are used for Microsoft Word.
I installed into my WordPress dashboard a free plugin called Ultimate TinyMCE which gave me all of the normal “Microsoft” editing features plus a host of others. I have stuck with the basic features and found no problems with creating content and developing my pages.
Once you have completed your page all you need to do to upload your page onto the internet is click the blue “Update” button. I installed the plugin in a blink of an eye.
WordPress uses a Content Management System (CMS) which could be viewed as being like “Microsoft Word” for your webpages. It lets you put together what you want to see on your website without you having to know what goes on behind the scenes to make it work.
I have illustrated below some of the additional benefits and features of building a WordPress website using the free Wealthy Affiliate support and training system.

To get started with your free website simply choose a general name for your site and enter it into the box below. If that is already taken the system will tell you. Choose a similar name until you find one that is free. You are in the process choosing what will be the unique domain name for your website. A domain name is rather like a car registration number for websites.
