How to Get a Free Website and Free Website Design

Developing a niche website is a great way to make income online via products you create and/or affiliate marketing.

I want to make it very clear that if you are at all serious about developling a website online you should get a website that you control. This means you should pay for hosting and a domain name.

I recommend Namecheap for domain names and Hostgator for hosting. But there are other good ones out there also.  A domain name runs about $12 a year and a hosting plan $10 or so per month for unlimited websites.  (Tip: Do not get your hosting at the same place as you buy your domain names.)

Using free platforms puts you at risk. Your site can be removed at any time. You are driving traffic to a site you don’t own. That said, some of you may want to play with a free website and free website design before you go the paid route.

So here is a step by step plan for you to get a free website and free website design.

Step 1

Go to www.webs.com. On the main page fill in the domain site name you want and a password. Webs.com offers an easy way to get a free website and free web design.

Step 2 

Click create a website.  A new screen will open up asking for more information; your email address, date of birth, country and gender. Your user name will be the same as your site address and will be prepopulated with the domain site name you chose in Step 1.

Step 3

Scroll down the screen and select a template. If you prefer to use advanced HTML you can upload your own. If you use webs.com, you have 300 templates to choose from. Templates range from a patriotic theme to floral backgrounds to modern designs. You can change your template at anytime. Most templates come in several color choices.

Step 4

Check “I agree to the terms of service” and click create my sites. A screen will pop up offering you different levels of service. Choose Basic (Free).

Step 5

Next a screen will pop up that asks if you want help building your site. Click Yes. Webs.com will then recommend pages for your site. It will walk you through the steps to develop each page. Pages make include a blog, photo gallery, shop etc.

Step 6

Spend time experimenting with the different easy to use site builder options that webs.com offers. You can delete pages, add pages, include links, add photos and video etc. There are lots of options for your free website and free website design.

Step 7

The webs.com is supported by ads so your website will have ads on it. You can however, upgrade (at a cost) to a no ad website. However, if you plan to do that you should switch to a hosting company where you can host unlimited blogs for the same price.

You can also register your domain name if it is available through webs.com but I would recommend registering it through a less expensive registrar such as Namecheap.

Enjoy playing with a free account but if you find you are enjoying the site and plan to develop it fully, you will want to migrate to a paid platform that you control. You can then use your free website as a backlink to help drive traffic to your paid site.

I would highly suggest considering a paid website which will run you about $10 or so a month. I recommend Hostgator. Use coupon code HostgatorPennySale and get your first month for one cent.

There is good and there is fantastic. That is the difference to me with my old hosting company and my new one, Hostgator.

Last year I sold a couple of my websites and needed help to transfer them. I called my hosting company at the time and was giving vague directions. I had heard Hostgator was very good about helping so I called them. They were amazing at giving advice. Over the course of the year, I found myself more on the phone with Hostgator than with my own hosting company.

Hostgator goes the extra mile. Every single time I have called them, they have taken time to provide me with the help and direction I need to go forward with my business. Not just general directions, they have walked me through, step by step, to help me with my sites. When it was time to renew, I switched to Hostgator.

I opened a reseller’s account at Hostgator. Now I am able to easily sell and host sites. I purchased the Aluminum plan. This comes with client management, billing software, site building tools, templates and much more. For 24.95 a month, I get 50GB of space and 500GB bandwidth. What I like is that each site has it’s own individual cpanel so I can easily sell sites, giving the buyer the log in information and letting them take care of the transfer.

For most people, the basic Hostgator plan is more than sufficient. A single domain starts at only $4.95. You can host unlimited domains for $7.95. I recommend you get the Baby Plan so you can add unlimited websites. It is only a couple dollars more a month. Installation of WordPress, forums and other programs are done with a click of a button. They will also transfer your domain at no charge during the first 30 days. They will transfer up to 30 domains for a reseller’s account.

If you need Hosting and want top notch quality and service at an affordable price, Hostgator is excellent!

About Affiliate Marketing

SPECIAL! Step by Step blueprint on how to make money with Amazon, written by two $10K a month bloggers. Read about it in my article AMAZONIAN PROFIT PLAN

Affiliate marketing is a method of generating income by placing ads in your blogs, newsletters, and other marketing material for products and services. Advertisers pay you based on customer sales, leads or clicks.

You register to be an affiliate either with an individual company or an affiliate site. Then you put banners, widgets, text links and other product information on your website, blog, newsletter etc. There are a number of different compensation structures. Payouts will differ according to the advertiser and the type of affiliate program you are workng with. Below are some typical methods of compensation.

Pay Per Click (PPC) – You are paid based on the number of clicks that result from your ad placement.

Pay Per Sale (PPC) – You are paid based on the number of sales that result from your ad placement.

Pay Per Lead (PPL) – You are paid based on the number of leads that result from your ad placement.

There are many affiliate sites. After you have completed an application, you will have to be approved. Some sites approve automatically. Others will look at your website and make a decision. Once you have been approved you may find that the affiliate site carries hundreds of products and you may have to submit an individual application to carry certain product lines.

Free Website Traffic For You!

If you are working online then you probably want to drive traffic to whatever you are doing.
We all know that traffic is essential to get more Adsense clicks, Affiliate sales,visits to your articles, visits to your products etc.

One method is to use social bookmarking. Social bookmarking gives you backlinks and it also helps drive traffic. However, tons of social bookmarks to your sites from yourself is frowned on by the bookmarking sites and could even result in deletion of your account.

The solution is social bookmarking on steroids. Getting your bookmarks bookmarked by others. And you can do this absolutely free. Sign up for a free account at the Social Bookmarking site Register for the bookmarking sites.

Put in the information for the sites you want bookmarked and voila…others will bookmark your sites driving quick free traffic for you. How is this different than sites like Onlywire? With this site other people will be bookmarking your site. This looks very natural to the search engines and to the bookmarking sites. Plus it is much easier to use than Onlywire.

What is the catch? Well you have to bookmark other people’s sites to earn credits so they bookmark yours. BUT it is done by simply clicking a button. Once you click it auto bookmarks the site using the tags and URL they have put in. So it is very efficient.

This is very simple, very fast and will save you hours of time. New sites are being added all the time. Currently the site uses Mister Wong, Delicious, Faves, Spotback, Multiply, Gravee and many others.
