My open secret to building websites revealed – My open secret to building websites is to be smart about it.

top secret

Rather than learning all about building websites by buying books that contain a lot of technical information and by studying hard, I think it is much smarter to see if there are any alternatives methods in reaching this goal.

I am very pleased to tell you about my open secret to building websites. When you see this, you will see why it is an open secret.

This post was originally written in 2016. Then this approach was “leading edge”. Now numerous webhosts have similar interfaces. These solutions are very bit as good and usually a lot cheaper.

For instance many cPanel webhost accounts come with the Softaculous Apps Manager installed. Installing WordPress with the Softaculous Apps Manager is really easy and simple.

Or at least that was my experience in 2021 with the cPanel hosting at Domain Cost Club.

Rather than reinventing the wheel, here is a link to the Softaculous Install WordPress using Softaculous documentation. This includes screenshots. It shows how easy and simple this approach is.

These days, many cPanel webhosting accounts come with the Softaculous Apps Manager installed. This allows you to install WordPress. In 2021, I found that this approach just worked with no issues.

Getting your own hosting, at say for example Bluehost, you will have a lot of options regarding functionally. You will have access to many WordPress Themes and many WordPress Plugins, both free and paid.

Once WordPress is installed and working with your website, you work smart. You bypass installing WordPress on your computer and working the “old fashioned way”.

If you opted for cPanel hosting you discovered that installing WordPress with your webhost using Softaculous is very easy and error free (at least it was for me).

If you opted for Managed WordPress hosting you pay a lot extra for hosting and your host installs WordPress for you automatically.

Of course there are usually other differences between cPanel hosting and Managed WordPress hosting as well.

You have to decide for yourself if it is worth paying the extra money for Managed WordPress hosting over cPanel hosting. One “but” with cPanel hosting is that you usually need some prior experience in using it. This is because there are loads of options, many of which you may never actually use. It can be overwhelming.

The Managed WordPress hosts I have used have a way similar user interface which makes navigation and the like way easier to actually use.

Years ago, in my experience, the scripts used in cPanel hosting to install and implement WordPress were troublesome to use and error prone which was one of the reasons why I opted for Managed WordPress hosting in 2016.

However in 2021, I discovered that the modern version of these scripts in cPanel hosting just worked with no issues. I wrote a post comparing a cPanel webhost with a Managed WordPress webhost.

  1. Thanks for your article. What a thoughtful way in thinking about starting your online business and building websites. I’m just starting out building my own and realize that I have such a LONG way to go. How long did it take for you to feel like you were getting the hang of things? I look forward to your feedback!

    • Hello Momma Bear,

      Thank you for your input. My advice is to start to build your free website now and to take it from there. When you start this process, you will have access to additional training that should help you with this process.

      I wish you all the very best with this process, Momma Bear.

  2. Very good information here. I have been trying to make a website for a long time. I just haven’t found a website to help steer me in the right direction. I hope this works for me. Is it an age limit on who can join?

    I want to join as soon as possible. But I need to know is it really good for someone older like myself.

    Thanks and keep up the good work.

    • Hi there, Heathguy33,

      There is no upper age limit on who can join. If you can read and send emails, and follow video presentations (which you can ‘rewind’ as often as necessary), you should be good to go.

      Give it a go and see does it work for you. After all, the free starter membership package is free and you do not have to provide credit card details to get the free starter membership package.

      Cheers,
      David

  3. Hey David, thanks for the great information. Seeing as I myself am just starting out in the world of website building, your post was very useful to me. Thanks for the hard work, and keep it up!

    I’m curious though, roughly how long did it take you to learn how to build a website?

    You’ve picked a great niche to work in!

    • Hi JoshyT,

      If I was learning from scratch how to build a website and get it up and running on the internet, I would start to build your free website now and to take it from there. When you start this process, you will have access to additional training that should help you with this process. I reckon if I spent a dedicated hour or two per day doing this for a few weeks, I would be well on my way.

      All the best with your website building, JoshyT.

  4. Hi David.

    I am just starting off on creating and designing my own website and I was looking for help on-line. I came across your page and I was impressed with the simple design and layout of your post. I like the way that it is not cluttered with banners and adverts, it’s easy to read and navigate and has the relevant info that I was looking for.

    • Hi Antonio,

      As you might have gathered when you read my article, I am a big believer in using tools and techniques other people have found useful when building a website and writing articles that other people find of great value. I think having this skill is an extremely valuable one.

      Thrilled that this article helped you out.

      Kind Regards,

  5. Great article. I have used a lot of different platforms to build my websites over the years including learning how to use Adobe Dreamweaver. WordPress in my opinion is by far the easiest.

    I totally agree with you that you need to approach building your website the smart way. Rather spend your time creating content and find a simpler method to create your website. One way is to use SiteRubix in conjunction with WordPress. This is a good practical way to build websites. Anyone who knows how to send and receive emails can do this.

    • Hi Celeste,

      Yes, I agree. Using SiteRubix in conjunction with WordPress is a great way to build websites. This is especially true if you do the free easy to follow training they they provide.

      Kind Regards,
      David

  6. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. I am really keen to start my own business and have no idea how to do it. Does Wealthy Affiliate build the website for you?

    I notice you said you started with the siterubix domain but upgraded to a paid version, do they let you keep the siterubix domain when you buy the paid version?

    Reply
    • Hi Craig,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Using the Wealthy Affiliate build a website tool, you answer a few questions and then the website is built for you. This is just really an empty website with its own infrastructure. This allows you to add content.

      Yes, you can keep the free siterubix domain when you buy premium membership of Wealthy Affiliate. There is of course a time limit (which in my opinion is very generous) on how long you can keep the free siterubix domain if you let your premium membership of Wealthy Affiliate expire or if you never buy premium membership of Wealthy Affiliate in the first place.

      Kind Regards,
      David

      • I am also a member of Wealthy Affiliate.

        They are very helpful in the sense that they give you a free trial in order to work out if this is the thing for you and then when you are a premium member they open you up to a massive network of like minded people who just want to succeed in life without being stuck at work all their lives.

        • Hi Craig,

          Yes, I agree with you 100 per cent. Wealthy Affiliate is really good if you are interested in building websites and are interested in building traffic to your websites. They provide a lot of great training. They also provide secure WordPress hosting.

          Kind Regards,
          David

  7. Wow, thanks for sharing this freebie. 1 FREE website? That’s awesome. But this is a subdomain site right? Like siterubix dot com?

    But nonetheless, this is legit. I’ve watched that video you shared and they really provide some good training that teaches people how to build a website by using WordPress.

    I’m going to get started soon. I’m excited for this. Thank you again.

    • Hi Andrew,

      Yes, that is correct. The secure WordPress hosting for one website is free, and it is accessible on the internet as sub domain sites within the main siterubix dot com website.

      For instance, say you had a website focusing on clocks, you might try to grab the “clocks” name within siterubix dot com, and assuming that it is not assigned to someone else, your website in this case would be called clocks dot siterubix dot com

      Yes, you get really good practical training on building your website and having it accessible on the internet.

      Yes, you should get started on this as soon as you can.

      Having the ability to build websites is a very useful skill to have and it is also a very marketable skill to have.

      Now of course, if you never upgrade to premium membership of Wealthy Affiliate or if you let your premium membership of Wealthy Affiliate expire, the free secure WordPress hosting of your website will be stopped which is fair enough.

      Kind Regards,
      David

  8. You make it seem so easy! I like that you include so much information about creating a site through WordPress. I also use WordPress, and it’s so awesome how we can change the layout/theme without injuring our content. The free service for building the sites sounds like a good deal, too, especially with all that step-by-step information available.

    Reply
    • Hello Penelope,

      Yes, the free offer to allow you to build a free website using their secure WordPress hosting within their domain is a really good offer, especially when you take into account the free training that they provide. Following the “Learn and do” approach, you should have a website up and running very fast indeed.

      Thanks for dropping by and leaving your comment.

      Cheers,
      David

  9. I would love to learn more about this because I really love writing so starting a blog would be perfect, but I do worry about the technical aspects of setting up the websites, learn how to add images and that kind of thing.

    I set up a website with wix once before, it was a drag and drop builder so easy to use but I found the options were very limited on it, it didn’t feel the way I wanted it. Does SiteRubix user a drag and drop builder too? How easy is it to customise? Many thanks.

    Reply
    • Hello Simon,

      SiteRubix is very easy to use. You answer some questions and a website is built. SiteRubix uses WordPress behind the scenes, so you can use WordPress Templates. It is easy to customise as well.

      How easy is this? Pretty easy in my opinion.

      Kind Regards,
      David
