Before commencing on this topic “Building a Website“, let’s state what a Website is. The word Website comes from the word “web” and “site” and have various definitions as stated here-under:
From Dictionary.com, it is a connected group of pages on the world wide web (i.e www) regarded as a single entity. A Website is usually maintained by one person or an organization and devoted to a single topic or several closely related topics.
The British Dictionary also defined it as “a group of connected pages on the world wide web containing information on a particular subject”.
In Science: It is a set of interconnected webpages, usually including a homepage, located on the same server, and prepared and maintained as a collection of information by a person, group or organization. A particular website is identified by its host name which is part of a URL. Multiple host names are usually mapped to the same computer in which case they are known as “Virtual servers”.
From the above definitions it is understood that one could create as many websites as possible since a website handles particular issues or topics or related issues. Hence in Wealthy Affiliate in its registration requirement, Starter memberships are to build two free websites while twenty-five free websites for Premium Members and twenty-five of own domains- which is just too good to be true; but true because during the training sections; various issues bubbling around you may warrant you to create these various websites and putting down your contents for publication.
Having known what a website is, How do we build a Website?
To build a website especially in Wealthy Affiliate is as simple as A-B-C. In fact Kyle calls it “a blink of the eye or an average time of 30 – 34 seconds” a website is set up and running with lots of theme to choose from. This is made possible because all the technical issues involved in building it are erased from you as Wealthy Affiliate experts handles all the technical issues. As a Starter Member of WA, you have two free websites you have to build.

How would you do it with ease?
First of all you have to get an area of interest of your choice; an area you are passionate about; be it in photography, sports, recreation and its facilities, hospitality, etc; what ever field of your choice you know you can confidently talk about and form a niche from it.
