Is it a good idea to start a web designing website?
Web design is a great niche to get into to develop skills that could possibly land you a job, to make your resume more attractive, or simply to spend some time while making money or not.
There are plenty of web designers out there, though, and standing out, of course, can be hard. You have to work on your own projects or work for others to build up a respectable portfolio, you have to get your name known by working for free to get some promotion and so on.
However, there are other ways to achieve renown, and one of them is creating a web designing website. Tips and advices, particular techniques or tricks, general guidelines, WIP updates while you're working on another project and so on.
How effective would it be compared to the aforementioned alternative (portfolio)? Ideally you would want to work on both, but that's not always (if ever) possible because of time restrictions.

If you are dedicated and focus on it, then why not.
Here is a way for you to make money with websites
1. Sign up to a host affiliate programme.
2. They pay you xxx amount for each person you sign up. Usual is $50 to $100.
3. Offer to set up website for customer for FREE. Design it FREE.
4. But sign them via your affiliate link.
You get your affiliate commission. Customer gets free design/set up. Win win.

Plus, hosting a website on a platform you're affiliated with could also prove useful to assure a quicker assistance to your customers. It really is a win-win.
I assume even bigger web designers do that, right? With the difference that they also charge a price for the design itself.

Yes. Between $50 to $100 per sign up is normal.
You could always outsource the design work, and get it done for cheap.

And here is another smart idea. I think that would make it harder to provide quick support, though, and it could turn counterproductive if you don't know this external designer well.

Depends where you look for the designer. There are platforms where you can check feedback and so on. So you know when you deal with reputable sellers.
You know, you could always suit up and go to local businesses and offer them this.

That could work well in the right areas, you know? I'm still a student, so it's hard to find the time to try this, but it looks like a very intriguing idea.

A student? You have plenty of potential customers around you - other students. Maybe not web design, but there are plenty of other things out there you could try.
Find out what your fellow students need. Once you have, I can point you in right direction if I can.

Thanks for the tip, though!

You could start the web design, get your fellow students to promote it for you. When you get paid from affiliate host, you can pay the students a % for each referral they gave you.

Especially on webmasters, web designer forums, there are more people needing web design services for their websites and you can easily to get some clients quickly without spending more time.
