So, a temporary period of frustration has set in due to a Domain name transfer issue. In short, it shows "ready" under hosting, but "transfer in progress" under transfer domain. If someone can make sense of this without their brain exploding, please let me know.
Why the frustration over something seemingly unimportant?
Glad you asked. I already had my website launched with Shopify. I closed it down and went through the transfer process to WA. That domain name has absolutely everything I created linked to it. A ton of time and effort. I should mention that this domain name is the name of my business .net.
Now, though I am rebuilding my website from scratch it is coming along quite quickly which is good. The problem is that when a potential customer goes to that domain from all my social media pages they get a "Sorry, the website can't be found" messege instead of me being able to at least set up an "Under Construction/Maintenance" page with an e-mail capture.
Can I still progress?
Of course I can and I will. My woocommerce storefront is still not completed, but should be within the next 2-3 days pending any major distractions or being called to go back to work.
I am currently in the process of finalizing the arrangement of my site at which point I will just have to finish plugging in all my products and variations of said products along with prices, descriptions, etc.
Thereafter it will be time to start pumping out articles and creating more product images. The road is still long, but I want my fricken domain!
