Here’s the Video Transcript

Hey everyone. It’s Denny iHop Luong from Mackeno Creative. And today we’re going to talk about the next part, part two for how to build a personal training website and that’s from scratch and for free. So this is very helpful for anybody who may be bootstrapped or doesn’t really have a big budget to work with. So let’s go ahead and dive into the, to the next part. So this is part of the article that I have here and let me go ahead and make my head smaller and like magic disappeared. Okay. So this is the article that I’m referring to, how to build a personal training website. Part one, this is the overview. Okay. So you go ahead and read through the article, but what I’m going to go ahead and do is show you how to get a free domain. So you can read about this article. It just sums up exactly what you’ll need to do. And then an infographic that explains how a website works using an analogy of a house. Okay. All right. So enough of the article, let’s go ahead and get right into this. So how to get a free website domain first, you’ll want to go to freenom.com. Okay. And you’ll want to sign in however I’m already signed in. So you’ll just need to register an account. You can use Google or just create one without using a Google attachment. So what you’re going to go ahead and do is you can type in the domain you want, I’m going to go with something personal trainer like, and, uh, I’m going to go with broccoli. I mean, chicken and broccoli. All right. It should really say no more chicken and broccoli, but Whoa, what would that grass? Okay, so this is earlier. I just selected it. What you can go ahead and do is as you see here, there are five types of domains, chicken and broccoli.tk dot M l.ga dot C F and D GQ. Yes. You should come down here and then purchase one of the domains. Um, like a.com or.net. I really wouldn’t do that. This website is perfect for free domains. However, it is a little funky and I wouldn’t recommend using it. There is a lot of bugs that may happen. So I wouldn’t get a paid domain from them. I would go to maybe Google domains or maybe GoDaddy, one of the larger ones. Okay. I’m going to go ahead and select this one. Cause I like GQ. I get some fabulous. Anyways. I’m going to check out. Okay. So I’ve selected that one and you are welcome to select multiple domains. There’s nothing wrong with that. I don’t really need so many domains. I’m just going to go with one. Okay. So I want to chicken and broccoli.gq. And as you see here, it says three months at free. And if you go down, you’ll see that it goes all the way up to 12 months. So don’t select any of these other ones. I would not recommend them. Okay. So before I continue, just to note these free domains, they aren’t perfect. Okay. There’s going to be lots of limitations. There has been a few people that said that after using their free domain for a while, and they got tons of traffic that they ended up losing their domain because of how well it was doing. Okay. So that is or caution. But the way I look at it is if you’re tight on a budget, you don’t want to spend anything. Then this is what you have to pay for. Okay. Or this is one of the things you get, you get what you pay for it. So anyways, let’s continue. I selected 12 months for free because why not choosing any less? It doesn’t really matter. I’m going to go ahead and hit continue. Okay. So at this point, if you haven’t already registered for an account, they’re just going to ask you to sign up with an account with them. Uh, you have to have an account, otherwise there’s no way to access your domain. Okay. So just to know, all right. So as you see here, $0, I will click that and complete my order. Another great thing is that you don’t even have to put in your credit card. Okay. So even if something happens, uh, there’s no worry. Okay. You don’t have to put in any money. They won’t be taking anything from you. And I wouldn’t suggest you pay for any of their services. Okay. All right. Let’s go ahead and continue. All right. Now that we’re done, we’re back to this page. And as you see here, when you click services, then you go to my domains. You’re going to see your domain here. There we are chicken and broccoli dodgy. Cute. Okay. So, Well we’ve gone ahead and done is we’ve just set up the domain. Okay. We’ve gone access to it. And that we are the owners of it. What you’re, we’re going to do later on is we’re going to manage the domain and then we’re going to change some of the settings so that it points to the website we create. So if you looked at the article that I had here, the domain is basically just a, uh, where did we put it? Uh, oops, where did I put the domain? Here we are. Where are you? So domain is just how customers will find you. Okay. It doesn’t mean that’s the website. It just means where they’re going to find you. So if they type in chicken and broccoli, GQ, then you should see my website. But if there’s nothing there yet, then you’ll see nothing. And I will go ahead and show you just if you’re curious, so I’ve copied and I pasted it and it’s just going to give me a blank page more. Most likely our site can’t be reached because there is no site here, but we’re pretty much done with this. I just wanted to show you the first steps we want to register our domain so that no one else can take it. It’s possible that someone might take it, even if it’s free. Okay. All right. So this is the end. We’re going to move on to the next part very soon. Okay. All right. I hope this was helpful Luck and look forward to helping you out with your personal training business. All right. It’s Denny iHop Luong and we’re out.
