In this tutorial I will show you how to find a FREE domain name from SiteRubix.com.
SiteRubix.com is a great resource for folks who are just getting started online. The great thing about SiteRubix.com is that it allows you to have two websites for absolutely free and it does all of the complicated, behind the scenes things for you. In addition, SiteRubix.com will host your websites for you on their servers.
Your website will have a “.siterubix.com” extension at the end, but that is not a major problem as they are still fully functional WordPress website.
If you want a website that has only a “.com” extension please see my tutorial here: How To Find And Purchase A Domain Name From Namecheap.com
The process of acquiring a domain name through SiteRubix.com is insanely simple. I will show you how to do it now…and you don’t even have to leave my site to get started!
How To Find A Free Domain Name From SiteRubix.com
Step 1: Think Of Your Domain Name. The first thing you must do is determine what you want your website’s domain name to be. This usually is related to the topic of your website, but doesn’t necessarily have to be. For the sake of this tutorial I am going to be creating a website about men’s moccasins, so I want the domain name to be MensMoccasins.siterubix.com.
Step 2: See If Your Desired Name Is Available. Now you must determine if the domain name you have decided on is actually available. You can do this by entering it into the search box below. Once you have entered the domain name, wait to see if it is available. If it is, a green “Available!” will show up above the “Build It Now” button. If not, you will see a red “Taken” and you must think of another domain name.
Step 3: Verify Your Domain Name One More Time. Now you have been taken to SiteRubix.com and you must verify your domain name again. Simply click on the blue (A) “Build My Free Website!” one more time to move on.
Step 4: Sign In To SiteRubix.com. Now you must either create an account with (B) SiteRubix.com by filling in the requested information or (C ) sign in if you already have an account.
Step 5: Review Final Settings. Now you must review some final settings before your website can be created.
What kind of website do you want to build? (D) “A Free Website” should already be selected for you and your domain name should be entered into the (E) “Choose your domain name” box. If not, please select it and re-enter your domain name now.
Name Your Website. Type in what you want your website to actually be called in the (F) “Enter a name for your website here!” box. Remember that this can always be changed at a later date…so don’t spend too much time toiling over the perfect name!
The “Name” of your website is usually your domain name, minus the “.siterubix.com”, but with proper capitalization and punctuation. For example, this website's domain name is “kirbysmarketing.com” and the website name is “Kirby’s Marketing”.
Choose A Look For Your Website. This is the part where you choose your website’s theme; again, this can be changed at a later date with minimal hassle, so don’t worry too much about it now. Just simply click on one of the (G) available options that looks good for now.
Step 6: Build Your Website! We are almost finished with creating our very first website! Once you are happy with all of your settings, simply click on the blue (H) “I’m Ready, Build My Website Now!” button at the bottom of your screen.
Once you click this, SiteRubix.com will do all of the behind the scenes work for you and create your website according to all of the options you have selected. Once it is finished it will take you to the “Access Details” page for your website. This page gives you your (J) “Admin Username” and (K) “Admin Password”.
Step 7: Login To Your Website. This is the final step to creating your very own website. The easiest way to login to your admin panel is, not to remember the admin username and details, but to simply click on one of the two, blue (L) “Log Me In!” buttons on this page.
Now you are in the admin panel of your very own WordPress website. This is where you create new content and control every aspect of your website. You can also type in your website’s URL in your address bar and see what it looks like. (Obviously, at this point there isn’t much there since you haven’t added any content yet…but, it’s still a website that exists on the internet!)
You Now Own Your Very Own Website!
There you have it. Finding a free domain name with SiteRubix.com is an extremely simple, streamlined process. It probably took you less than 5 minutes to create your very own, fully functional, WordPress website!
