In this section I will describe how to build a website in 4 easy steps in WordPress.
This is a follow up lesson from the Getting Started 4 step process of establishing an online business.
Before you begin
1. Choose a niche
First thing is that you need to have decided on your niche, the selected area of the market, your target group. There is more detail on how to do this in the post on doing keyword research. Within Starter membership you will find this in lesson number
2. Choose a website name
Secondly you need to have decided on the name of your website. Your keyword research in the section on choosing a niche will inform what name you give your website. It can be in the form a keyword or it can be in the form of a brand or if you have a company name already.
There are two options in creating a website. One is to use the free website offered on the SiteRubix platform on Wealthy Affiliate. The second one is to use your own domain name that you need to purchase on Wealthy Affiliate platform or any domain name retail service like NameCheap.com or GoDaddy.com.
Option 1 : Free Website Option
Your website name will be a subdomain of the siterubix.com domain. A sub domain is a virtual web space that is denoted by the prefix of a domain name. For example when I was starting out a WA. I decided that my niche was the drone market. I then chose the name droneapex as my preferred name. But because I was still on the free Starter membership I had to use the free website option on the siterubix.com domain. So my website was called droneapex.siterubix.com
Option 2 : Own domain name
If you are Premium member, you can buy your own domain once you have decided on it. To make it simple you can register it within the Wealthy Affiliate Platform or you can register it elsewhere. If you register it elsewhere, you can get the name servers from WA and update the entries on your domain name reseller to point to Wealthy Affiliate NameServers.
