Crate training is the best method. The dog crate, becomes the dog's home and he will not want to do the deed in his nest. Thus, you have the dog sleep in the crate. You take him outside every morning to do his business and do the same after every meal. If your dog only eats once a day, you need to taken him out at least two other times. Reward him when he goes to the door to go outside. Scold him when he does not. Do not hit him or her with a rolled up newspaper, or rub their nose in the mess.
Older dogs, usually have some house training already. They learn pretty quickly. Puppies are harder. If you see a puppy ready to assume the position, grab it and take it outside. It will get the message soon enough.

Use a crate to discourage house soiling, but do NOT scold your dog for not eliminating. How in the world is he supposed to know what he did NOT do?
In general, train the older dog the same way you would a puppy - with frequent trips outdoors, crating and regular feeding. Never punish your dog for an accident! If you do, you run the risk of him making an unintended association between you and bad feelings! He is likely to eliminate out of your sight following punishment.
If you have a dog that should be housebroken but isn't, the first thing I would probably recommend is a trip to the vet to rule out medical causes. After getting a clean bill of health, you can start to work on the house training.
