Wealthy Affiliate Web Hosting – Best WordPress Web Host!

Looking for the best web hosting for the first time? Lost in too many different web hosting companies? Look no further! Wealthy Affiliate Web Hosting is the best WordPress web host you can find. I’ll reveal more.

What is Wealthy Affiliate Web Hosting?

Hi there, Edmund here!

Do you know that there is a Web Hosting service at Wealthy Affiliate? Never heard of it?

A lot of reviews out there tell you that you are given 2 free* websites if you join Wealthy Affiliate as a Free* Starter Member.

Do you know where do these websites come from?


Wealthy Affiliate Web Hosting – 2 Kinds of Websites

At Wealthy Affiliate, the WordPress web hosting suite is also known at SiteRubix.

SiteRubix’s SiteBuilder tool allows you to build 2 kinds of websites all within 30 seconds.


Sub-domain name Website

Sub-domain website is the free* website mentioned in many reviews out there. Every sub-domain website given by Wealthy Affiliate will have a sub-domain name .siterubix.com attached to it. E.g. your-own-website.siterubix.com.

There is no advertisement or banner attached to these free WordPress websites. And yes, it can be indexed and rank by google too!

However, there is a limit of only 25 theme design you can choose from. You also do not have any cPanel (Control Panel) or FTP (File Transfer Protocol) access due to security and fraud prevention.

Anyone can create a Free* website so the risks of the security breach and fraud are extremely high.

Wealthy Affiliate owners, Kyle and Carson have vouched to protect the community within from this kind of risks.


Purchased domain name Website

This service is only available to Premium members who are paying $49/mth. (or $359/yr)

You can purchase a domain name from any domain name provider. One good example would be NameCheap. You can build a website using your own domain name purchased with the SiteBuilder tool. E.g. my-first-website.com

There is a limit of max 25 sub-domain name websites and max 25 purchased domain name websites you can build at Wealthy Affiliate as a premium member.

You’ll also have 1000 over theme designs to choose from. Although you do not have cPanel for these websites too, but you are able to use FTP to access your website files.


Wealthy Affiliate Web Hosting – why no cPanel?

As I mentioned earlier, it is for security.

There is another reason.

It could be confusing for a new budding Online Entrepreneur to get overwhelmed by all this technicality of tweaking a website using cPanel or FTP.

The objective of Wealthy Affiliate is K.I.S.S. (Keep It Super Simple) so that anyone new can start building their own websites without worrying about technicality. Two thumbs up for a website building dummy like me!

When you become an expert, you could use the FTP login given to access the files of your website if you need to. (Premium Members only)


Wealthy Affiliate Web Hosting – is it worth the money?

Best WordPress Web Host

Let’s assume that we are going for the Premium Service hosting at Wealthy Affiliate.

For $49/mth, would you think that it is expensive to pay for a Premium WordPress Web Host?

Yes, I would think so!

Let me tell you why.

I would want to have a web host not just because it is premium, I would want to have the best web host that provides the following,


  • A highly optimized and simplified hosting platform
  • The ability to MOVE websites from one domain to another
  • The Ability to fire up FREE Websites on demand
  • Full Redundancy (100% backed-up to the minute)
  • The latest and greatest hosting technology (your websites are always hosted on the highest powered servers available)
  • Automated recovery processes
  • Personal website monitoring and maintenance
  • Removal of “rogue” plugins and themes
  • Comment spam management and behavioural assessment (so I don’t even get the spam in the first place)
  • Website integrity updates the continually improve how my WordPress sites function, based on the latest version of WP


Not only that, I would want my best web host to have

  • The Community and the Live Help
  • Access to Industry Experts
  • Personal Access to the Owners
  • World Class Training (1,000’s of resources)
  • Keyword Research Tools
  • Weekly Live Video Classes
  • Unlimited Access to a Website Builder
  • One of the Most Lucrative Affiliate Programs in the World
  • Ambassadorship Program (Ability to Pay it Forward)
  • Incentive Programs
  • Business Productivity Tools (Rapid Writer, Link Tracking, KW Lists)
  • Access to ALL Future Updates

Then, I am willing to fork out $49/mth for the best web host.

Is my demand too high and unrealistic? 🙂

Let Kyle, the owner of Wealthy Affiliate, tells you more.

    Wealthy Affiliate is so far the most robust hosting platform for WordPress. I myself had tried few other providers such as Hostgator and Bluehost, but they seem to be lacking some monitoring features and the security is quite weak too.

    With Wealthy Affiliate Web Hosting, our websites are thoroughly checked and boosted up for users experience. Although many members don’t realise this, but if you tried other services before, sure you can tell the difference.

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Edy, thanks for your comment.

      Thank you too for sharing your experience with other web hosting provider and acknowledge that Wealthy Affiliate Web Hosting is far better than them.

      (*If you are thinking of creating your own website and host it somewhere, listen to Edy. Head down to SiteRubix to create your own website and experience the web hosting there now.)

      Wishing you the best!

    Hi Edmund,

    It is definitely true that hosting through Wealthy Affiliate has its perks. Not only is it the company’s goal to give the best possible service to it’s members, but you get the entire website as a learning platform with it. This is the true power of Wealthy Affiliate.

    I have hosted websites on BlueHost before and have honestly never had any problem with it. It is purely hosting though if you’re a beginner and you need a learning platform to go with it to become successful in your ventures, Wealthy Affiliate is the way to go! 🙂


    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Maarten, thanks for your comment.

      You are absolutely spot on with the true power of Wealthy Affiliate. It’s 4 core elements (Training, Community, Tools and Hosting) integrates seamlessly to provide the best possible service to it’s members.

      Other hosting companies such as BlueHost’s focus is just to let you host your website there. Wealthy Affiliate not just allow you to host your websites there, but they want your websites to be successful too!

      Thus, Wealthy Affiliate is my #1 recommendation for all budding Online Entrepreneurs.

      Wishing you success, Maarten!

    Really informative post, Edmund. I’m sure that a lot of people are happy that you have shed some light on the differences between the 2 kinds of websites at Wealthy Affiliate and are excited at the huge value they get for free.

    Even a complete ‘technophobe’ like myself has found using SiteRubix very easy. Wealthy Affiliate Web Hosting is the right way to go!

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Justin, I am glad to create values for my visitors here too.

      Do note that some countries are not able to enjoy the Free* Websites for starter members due to Wealthy Affiliate’s Anti-SPAM policies.

      Indeed, Wealthy Affiliate’s SiteRubix is simple and straight forward without all the technical stuff. Everyone one can build a website from scratch.

      Glad that you’ve already found SiteRubix, Justin!

      Wishing you Success!

    Hi, Edmund.

    The way you put it, Wealthy Affiliate doesn’t seem to be a web hosting company, it only provides hosting as a way to simplify their members experience. I have a question though, if you are allowed to have unlimited websites, could you build websites for third parties? I’m an IT consultant and I would gladly pay $47/month if I was allowed to build websites for my clients.

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Oscar, thank you for your comment and questions.

      Yes, you are right, Wealthy Affiliate’s main business is not just about web hosting. It definitely simplifies the members’ experience with training, community, tools and hosting integrated seamlessly together.

      There was an update that I did not know of at the time of writing this post. I have made the changes accordingly and I sincerely apologise.

      The unlimited websites benefit for Premium member has changed to a limit of max 25 websites for sub-domain name websites and max 25 websites for purchased domain name websites. You can refer to the explanation in the discussion thread here.

      However, you could still build websites for third parties. Some premium members had done so.

      1. Building websites for others has anyone done this?

      Hope this help. Wishing you the best!

    Hi there Edmund,

    The one thing I like about WA hosting is that I can use SiteRubix sub-domain as a test site for anything WordPress related without having to fork out additional cost.

    I have done this for several plugins, CSS stylings and code embeds without having to worry about crushing the site. If it doesn’t work the way I wanted, then I would avoid doing any changes on my original website which is what I want to keep intact.

    Once I forgotten my login password into WordPress and thankfully for SiteManager, I was able to reset my password and access from WA itself.

    Top notch hosting – can’t really ask for more.

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hey Cathy, thanks so much for your comment.

      It is very smart of you to use the SiteRubix sub-domain as your testbed before implementing your ideas to your main site. I never thought of that before! I will do that in the future. 🙂

      Oh yes, SiteManager allows us to change the password directly from Wealthy Affiliate. It can even help us generate a secured password automatically. Top notch hosting, indeed!

      Wishing you the best, Cathy!

  6. Jess

    Thanks for breaking this down so well! I love that Wealthy Affiliate gives you one free week to try it out and then the first month is $19. The community is absolutely incredible. I have been a part of the community for about two weeks so far and I have learned more from WA in the past two weeks than I have on my own in the past two years.

    I love Wealthy Affiliate and I highly doubt I will ever leave. I tell everyone I know constantly about everything I am learning from the easy-to-understand lessons. So glad to see so many others so passionate about Wealthy Affiliate!

    I agree with you that cPanel can be quite complicated to understand for newbies. Did you use WordPress, cPanel, etc before finding WA?

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Jess, thanks so much for your comment and testimony of Wealthy Affiliate.

      In addition to all the excellent training, tools and helpful community, Wealthy Affiliate hosting belongs to one of the top class hosting available on the internet.

      I am a website dummy and I never used cPanel before or even now. I only use WordPress after I join Wealthy Affiliate and all I did was to follow the training’s step by step tutorials.

      I am glad that I need not attend to the technical details but just focusing on creating my valuable contents.

      Sincerely wishing you the best, Jess!

    Edmund, I came across your website and was intrigued. I have had my own restaurant/bar businesses in the past and have done very well.

    The challenge was I worked long hard hours, unbelievable operating expenses, Food and liquor costs, Labor, Rent, Utilities, Insurance that left me about 10 cents on the dollar profit.

    I am now looking to start a home base internet business, consulting for restaurants. The Wealthy Affiliate program you talk about sounds like a perfect way for me to start. I am going to try the free trial program, with the training and 2 free websites.

    I calculated the yearly membership plan and it would save me over 40% versus paying monthly. Compared to the start up cost of my previous business and operating costs this is a no brainer. Thanks for introducing this program. I will be checking back and updating you with my progress at Wealthy Affiliate.

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Robert, thanks for sharing your experience of running a restaurant/bar businesses.

      Indeed, running a brick and mortar business requires lots of hard work and operating expenses. Not easy for anyone without passion and determination. You definitely have both to run your businesses very well!

      Running a home base internet business requires the same passion and determination too. It will not be easy and definitely not an overnight event that you could see results.

      I am glad that my website has created values to you and shared with you the benefits of Wealthy Affiliate! You have done your calculation well too! 🙂

      I look forward to seeing your updates at Wealthy Affiliate. Do feel free to let me know if you need a hand in anything.

      Wishing you Success again with your home business, Robert!

    Hi Edmund,

    I think you are totally right. I’ve seen a lot of different host networks and Wealthy Affiliate is definitely superior to its class. I love that it has a community to hep you and your business grow and evolve. It’s like a team on my computer essentially! I think I want to be part of WA for a lot longer than I initially expected.

      Hi Matt! Thanks for your testimonial of Wealthy Affiliate’s hosting.

      Indeed, besides the hosting, the community is like a team behind you supporting your Online Business. I am glad that you want to be part of WA for a lot longer time!

      Wishing you great Success!

    I had a problem previously about the fact that Wealthy Affiliate does not have a CPanel. I wanted to upload a large plugin and because the hosting from Wealthy Affiliate does not have CPanel, it became a problem.

    It has its pros and cons but I like the fact that you can host as many websites as you like and other than that I never had any other problems with the hosting that WA provides.

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Viljoen, thank you for your comment.

      Yup, I agree, CPanel would allow more experienced users to have more controls over the website settings.

      On the other hand, Wealthy Affiliate wants to keep things as simple as possible for users with ZERO experience with website building. Recently released SiteDomains feature is a good example of that.

      The good news is that you can use an FTP apps like FileZilla to access the files of your Website with the access login details provided at SiteDomain feature. In this way, you could upload your large plugin.

      If you need more detail on this, you could contact me at Wealthy Affiliate.

      Wishing you the best!

    Hi Edmund, I like your website.

    It was full of information about wealthy affiliate. I think that the page was a little bit overwhelming with all the different information. You are a good writer, and you gathered a lot of information about wealthy affiliate. I actually learned something I didn’t know here.

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Nancy, thank you for liking my website. 🙂
      I put all information about Wealthy Affiliate in one place so that my readers can find everything they need here.

      Yes, I agree that the information is a little overwhelming just like the training available in Wealthy Affiliate. However, if you could take your time and digest the information little by little, you will feel enjoyable and I assure you that your knowledge about Wealthy Affiliate and Affiliate Marketing will definitely increase at the end of the day.

      Wishing you the best!

    Hi Edmund,

    I have been with Wealthy Affiliates for about two weeks and I have been loving it. I knew nothing about building websites, marketing, keywords, etc… and thanks to Wealthy Affiliates I have completed my first website. It was much easier than I thought it would be, without all the hosting and setup technicalitlies.

    Also, the support and community interaction is motivating and inspiring. The training is easy to understand and has you check off each step you do so you do not miss a thing.

    Wealthy Affiliates is the best thing to come into my life this year.

    Great website.


  12. Dylan

    Hi Edmund,

    I totally agree with what you have to say here. Wealthy Affiliate is worth the money and is probably worth more.

    This place has so much value and you did a great job mentioning it all. To get a keyword research tool, hosting, email, a community of like-minded individuals, support and all the other stuff for under 50 is great. You really couldn’t ask for more and it gives you the best opportunity to be successful online.

    The owners, Kyle, and Carson are really great and helpful too!

  13. Neil

    Hi, Edmund.

    I’ve been overwhelmed by so many hosting companies, that I didn’t know what to do for the best when it came to my own website.

    I had heard about Wealthy Affiliate but never knew it offered its own website hosting. I do love the idea that the sub-domain website is ad free because it’s a rarity on the internet these days.

    Premium membership certainly sounds great if I wanted my own domain name website, and WordPress is an awesome platform too!

    Thanks for this…


    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi, Neil.

      You are most welcome. I am glad that this article has brought you attention that Wealthy Affiliate do offer website hosting. And more recently, it has become a Domain Name Seller too.

      Wealthy Affiliate has evolved over the past decade to become one of the most comprehensive Affiliate Marketing Training/Business Platform with its Premium Membership.

      Wishing you the best!

    The one thing that I like about web hosting at Wealthy Affiliate is the super quick response time from their technical support, in the case of any downtime.(it’s less than a handful per year). Your website is the most important thing when you’re doing online business. Awesome technical support is one thing I would never compromise.

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi, Kenny.

      Thanks for sharing your experience on hosting websites at Wealthy Affiliate with us.
      I couldn’t agree with you more.

      wishing you the bet!
