I built my first “Content Website”, or “Blog”, 5 years ago, and now I earn enough recurring monthly income to pay for my lifestyle, whatever I decide it to be; beaches and surfing, mountains and hiking, or city and yoga. You can have your cake and eat it too. (Scroll down to watch the video tutorial on How to Build a Website).
Short Cut: How to Build a Website
Getting your website started is SO SIMPLE. It’s really just 10 minutes and a couple dozen clicks. It’s FACEBOOK simple, so if you can play farmville you can learn how to build a website.
You really only need 3 things to get started:
How to get a Domain Name (website address)
Your Domain Name is the name of your website, it’s the address that people find your website at. The domain name for this website is PassionProfits.com.
I have hundreds of domain names and 5 different “Registrars”. A registrar is just a service that allows you to register a domain name. Most registrars are also hosts, but some are not.
Not all registrars are created equal. Some are very difficult to transfer away from. Some are even difficult just to buy from (GoDaddy, the biggest registrar has many different upsells and distractions).
I have tried most registrars and hosts, and found that you should keep it simple and effective. Dreamhost is a registrar who also offers very flexible, reliable and easy to use hosting service.
How to Setup a Hosting Service
Websites are just files on a computer, and a host is just the computer somewhere in the world where the files that make up your website will live. Your domain name will “POINT” to where your files are located, so having your registrar and your host with the same service makes things very simple.
Dreamhost offers 24/7 support who are happy to help you with all your questions if you can’t find them here at PassionProfits.com.
They also offer 1-Click installs of many website platforms like WordPress -which is amazing free software that we’ll use to power our websites.
How to Build a Website using WordPress
WordPress is world class. It’s by far the leading platform for all kinds of webistes. Huge magazines that we’ll aspire to and that are valued at hundreds of millions of dollars (yes I said 100’s), use WordPress. It’s very easy to use, and VERY Powerful.
WordPress uses themes to create very beautiful and functional websites with the click of a button. I love WooThemes and use them for almost all of my websites, including PassionProfits.com and TheMasterCleanse.org.
I have put together a 10 minute video that walks you through the entire process
Here’s a list of shortcut’s on How to Build a Website:

Do you really want one of those houses that had wing after wing added over years and years with no understand of what would come next? You end up with a house that has no flow. It’s dysfunctional. Most websites end up this way because they start without the right services and tools.
