We Have Changed the Domain World for the Better. SiteDomains.

Last Update: January 07, 2016

Happy New Year!

Today we have some very exciting news that I want to tell you about. It's fitting to kick off 2016 with a bang, so I can't wait to tell you about what brand new platform is now available to ALL members of Wealthy Affiliate!!

For the past 10 years we have been building WA with the goal of allowing the most people possible (everyone) to be able to build an online business. One of the challenges has always been technology and getting people over the fears and difficulties of building the foundation of their business (their websites).

Today we are announcing a system design to fill the last MISSING link and makes WA a totally complete website building platform...removing one of the biggest technological hurdles people face!

Introducing SiteDomains!

You can now register new domains right here within Wealthy Affiliate! This means that when you are ready to secure your next domain name, you can do it right here within your WA Account!

The SiteDomains platform will instantly allow you to uncover any domain in seconds. This feature will expedite your domain research and truly uncover some of the true domain gems out there.

Access and purchase .com, .net, .org, .info and all of your other favorite top level domains in an instant.

All Your Domain Needs in One Place!

Each and every domain includes EVERYTHING you need and we do not upsell you like every other domain service out there. What you get with your WA domains is everything that you need to build your sites - privacy included!

  • Full privacy and domain protection.
  • Full email accounts included with each domain purchase.

With SiteDomains you have everything included all in one place...at ONE price.

Oh, and we don't charge you more for renewals. You can expect the same price for as long as you own your domain!

Security and Privacy

Your privacy was at the top of our list when building the SiteDomains platform. We are constantly hearing about folks in WA getting unsolicited scam phone calls, emails, or even registered mail sent to them because they have not protected their WHOIS (contact) details of their domain. At WA, we include PRIVATE WHOIS protection with every single domain, this isn't an upsell, it's built right into the highly competitive pricing.

We also include additional levels of security with your domains to help prevent you from ever losing your domain to a competitor.

We wanted to build the domain experience that we have always wanted, and SiteDomains is it! Simple, Secure, Private, and filled with features!

Simplicity...

When you buy a domain at Wealthy Affiliate, you will be up and running in literally minutes. No waiting for 24-48 hours for your domain to be registered, it's going to happen in MINUTES...

Your Domain will already be setup on our servers ready for your website to be installed just a few minutes after you purchase, so you can literally get your site published and live on the NET right away. No more fumbling around with changing DNS to point at our servers either, this is all setup for you - it's completely hassle free!

What about domains that you own from other Domain registrars?

Domains that you own at other registrars will continue to work the same way they always have. In-fact, you can still purchase domains elsewhere and point them to WA Servers...though there is no reason to ever need to now.

SiteDomains can be your choice moving forward for all domain registrations. It's completely integrated into your WA account, removes all technological hurdles, includes security, and is very competitively priced.

So, how about Pricing?

We are not here to gouge anyone for their domain purchases, so we made the decision to offer domains at the ABSOLUTE lowest price we could. As you can see in the table below, I think you'll agree that we've done a pretty good job at coming in with a competitive edge :)

When registering domains through WA, you are instantly setup and ready to use all of the SiteRubix features like SiteFeedback, SiteComments, SiteHealth, SiteSupport, and others we are working on! You'll be ready to rock right from the get go.

Affiliates earn $1 per domain

You will even earn $1 from every domain registration from people you refer to WA! These will also be recurring commissions so if you sell a domain now and someone keeps it next year, you will get a $1 recurring commission next year.

Many people also bulk buy domains, so if someone buys domains in multiples, you will et $1in affiliate commissions for each.

Don't be surprised when you start seeing TWO $0.50 credits (total $1) start coming into your Affiliate Account.

SiteDomains is available to EVERYONE!

Whether you are a Starter or Premium member, you will ALWAYS have access to WA domains! We have made this part of WA always accessible to you regardless what the status of your membership is.


The SiteDomain experience at WA truly a pleasure to use and I'm really excited to hear what you have to say after giving it a try yourself :)

==> Check out SiteDomains Here!

I look forward to hearing your comments and thoughts on the first BIG release of 2016...of many to come! I hope you have a great year ahead and we look forward to being part of it :)

I have other domains registered else where and had to pay for the privacy, so I think this is one huge advantage of SiteDomains. I just recently registered my first domain here and will be taking advantage of the 25 slowly in the future. The price is affordable to own your own domain, "why wouldn't you", Thanks Carson for re-publishing this article (post), I am just in the middle of writing my review and the information here is not something I thought to include.

Can all domain extensions be purchased or transferred to WA. For example can I transfer a .co.uk or purchase further .co.uk domains through WA?
When I tried it returned an error saying “tld” not supported, was that just an error on my end or is there a reason WA do not support .co.uk domain purchase?

Hi, if I transfer my domain registration to WA, (it's already hosted here), so 1) do I need to transfer it? (It looks like it will be better to)
and 2) do I automatically get the privacy protection or would I need to purchase it in this case since I'm not buying a new domain?
Reply
Labman Premium
You don't need to transfer it. I ususally wait until it is within a month of renewal before I transfer to WA as you will need to purchase another year of registration when you do.

The privacy policy protection is included with the price of registration at WA. It is typically an add on with other hosting.

If I am rebuilding my site anew, (following deletion), wouldn't transferring it here make it easier though, as I wouldn't have to go through transferring the hosting back here, as I suspect I will do if I delete my site first.

Hi Carson,

I am relatively late to the game on this one...I and my partner have about 100 domains from various sellers (i.e. GoDaddy, Hostgator, etc.)...

We are considering moving them all to Wealthy Affiliate (some are hosted here but most not)...The breakdown you provide above helps us to make that decision, because I can clearly see we will save...

The other thing I had no idea about was the affiliate portion of the new program. That is something else I can highlight ono the appropriate blogs and on FB...

Thanks to both of you, well done once again!

Cheers!

Happy to read this post. Thank you my dear Carson.
I'm now confident to buy my first domain.
Before that I was a bit confused about where to buy a domain.
However I still have one issue, how to transfer my existing siteRubix website to the new domain and what effect it will have on google ranking.
Many thanks dear.
Reply
MsMoneyHoney Premium
Well, stepping aside of the "dear" issue.... I'll answer the question about transferring a SiteRubix site.

Once you have a domain hosted here, which is automatic if you purchased a domain here, you will have two sites. All you need to do to transfer content is to click the "move" button on your dashboard.

First, however, I'd make sure you are using the same theme and have the same plug-ins that you have on your Site Rubix... I'm a bit of worrywart, and this would help minimize any content transfer problems. ...

The sooner you transfer your content, the sooner your new site will rank. Also, you may want to delete the Site Rubix site entirely, or, at least, break the connection and change the duplicate content asap.

My two cents!

Good Luck!

Many thanks Toni, you are so kind.
What do you mean by break the connection and how to do it. thx
Reply
MsMoneyHoney Premium
Hi - Sorry... When you move content, the two sites are still linked. In the past, I had to contact support to make sure the two sites became two totally separate sites because I kept one or two of them...

I am not sure whether there is an additional button now to give you the choice during the transfer. Just make sure that if you keep the Site Rubix site, that it's completely separate after the transfer because, one time, I had new posts - posting to the old Site Rubix site. Or, as mentioned earlier.. somewhere, you may just delete it entirely and avoid any problems altogether.

OK I thought that once I bought a domain name from Name cheap or here , that was it for out of pocket expense. No fees to transfer or add my domain name, but its ok.
Reply
DaveSw Premium
There is no additional cost to add your domain to SiteRubix for hosting, all you have to do is point the domain to their servers.

That is done through changing the DNSs for your domain from where ever they are pointing to now using the url you are provided...

You can get this by using the blue button you see to the post area of every WA page and then pull that DNS data out - OR you can do a search using the window above the post area to ask your question and the answers available will pop up for you to review...

If I remembered I could add them here, but it hs been awhile and I am not sure anymore, better to check and get the correct links...Best of luck!

There are no fees to transfer name servers and leaving your site with its current "Registrar" (Namecheap). There may be fees associated if you are transferring "Registrars" depending on your current Registrar and the time left on the domain's Registration.

If you are hosting here at WA, and keeping your NameCheap as your domain's Registrar, you only need to change your name servers. Change: NS1.MYWAHOSTING.COM and NS2.MYWAHOSTING.COM. Then, allow 15 min and up to 48 hours for it to propagate over to your new hosting site - WA. Once that's done, then, you create your hosting account by adding a new website "on a domain you already own." Add your Title of your website, choose a theme, and click "create my site." Then, log in through WA. That's it!

That's what I did. I've been contacting support here and at Name cheap, but still I have been struggling to add my domain name here . I tried again yesterday , it said Oops an error on our part, WA so I contacted support here again and they said I have to purchase . I'm a little concerned. I know this will get resolved.
Reply
MsMoneyHoney Premium
Did you purchase your domain with Namecheap? And, if so, did you change the name servers yet on your Namecheap dashboard? If you did change the name servers, have you checked with them to see if they have changed yet? It takes "up to 48 hours" to redirect. Support here at WA won't be able to help you unless you did (all of) that first.

If you haven't yet purchased a domain, and you want to purchase it here from WA, the domain will already be pointed to WA's server. So, again, I'm not sure if you have actually purchased your domain yet AND have changed the name servers...
Reply
Happy12 Premium
Hi, I did purchase a domain name from Namecheap and changed the name servers . I have been in contact with namecheap regarding this as well. I've explained to support here as well about namecheap, buying a domain name from them.

Then there was an issue with the name servers being pointed but fixed it and unlocked so the name servers could be pointed here but now support is saying the reason I can't add my purchased domain name here is because o have to purchase a domain name here when that's not true when I already bought from namecheap. I'm getting concerned but I know this will get resolved. I sent another message to namecheap letting them know too. Thank you for getting back to me.

scottymj2011 Premium
It may not be relevant to your issue, but I know it's a pretty strict policy that you must wait 60 days after the initial registration or any previous transfers to initiate a transfer. So if you purchased a domain at Namecheap, you would have to wait 60 days before being able to transfer the domain to Wealthy Affiliate. And that's not a WA policy, that's a ICANN strict standard that all hosting companies follow.

This is very cool. So here is my question. I have some domains with GoDaddy and I use Weebly for the platform. Since they are pretty established sites I don't know if I want to move them to WA. Can I transfer the domains to WA but continue to use Weebly for those particular sites?
Reply
pamdemonium Premium
Have you gotten answers from anyone?

Yes, you can transfer domains to WA while continuing your site(s) on Weebly.
Reply
MsMoneyHoney Premium
Hi - Just to clarify... WA hosts your sites via membership. In addition, WA now offers domains. So, when you ask whether you can "transfer" domains to WA, but still wish to use Weebly, a hosting platform, then you are only talking about changing "Registrars" for your domains - correct? If so, it will take some time to change Registrars, have the site propagate over then change those name servers, assuming you can, to point to Weebly which, by the way, is only free up to 500Mb. Is that what you wish to do?
Reply
NanMarie Premium
Probably not. I've come to the conclusion that over time I am going to rebuild those sites here at WA. I've transferred one that was fairly new and considering two others that haven't been well established or even published yet. The one I am most concerned about is my www.nelsonsewing.com site because it is the most well established site I have. I don't particularly want to lose any ranking I may have established but that may also not be a big issue either. What is your opinion on the matter? Now that I am learning more about WordPress and what it has to offer and how to use it correctly I am changing my tune a bit about Weebly.
Reply
NanMarie Premium
Okay that was the answer I was looking for. Now how do I go about making that happen?
Reply
MsMoneyHoney Premium
Sorry - was busy with "mom issues," but all is well now. Re: "losing ranking" - for what? If you, or anyone, changes host providers for any site, whether new, or old and indexed, it really doesn't matter. Your site will be temporarily "down" until it propagates to the new host. People do this all the time... Re: the content, however, I am not sure how you will back-up your content on Weebly, nor do I know if it can even be transferred to WordPress in its current state. I rather doubt it.. but then, I'm no Weebly expert.

In the past, when I have transferred my nameservers to another host provider, I actually copied the html code into a NotePad file for every page that I wanted to keep - content and images. Once the site propagated over, I cut and pasted the code into the new "vehicle," in this case, WordPress and tweaked from there to re-publish the site quickly and get it up and running again as soon as possible. You do not want your content missing for very long - as that time delay WILL affect your "ranking."

Reply
MsMoneyHoney Premium
I think you're talking about transferring "registrars?" Right? If so, and if Kyle has already told you that WA isn't ready to transfer domains yet, then you will have to renew with your current registrar but point your DNS to WA's servers. Once your domain is renewed, is pointed here, and you have opened up a hosting account for that domain here at WA, THEN, you can transfer the content from one site, such as a Site Rubix site, to your domain site. I believe the clarification needed to be stated... ..
Reply
ChrisGooden Premium
Transferring domains is hugely expensive and very time consuming. I think you are getting muddled up with transferring hosting, which is what all the rest of us do. Takes seconds. Costs nothing.

All you need to do is set your domain nameserver to point to WA. Every domain registrar has its own way to do that, just ask them.

You need to change them to
Primary: NS1.MYWAHOSTING.COM
Secondary: NS2.MYWAHOSTING.COM
Reply
MsMoneyHoney Premium
I've never experienced a huge expense when transferring Registrars. What makes you say that? It is easily done, but it does take a bit of patience depending on the Registrar as you have to release it from one Registrar and get the other to accept, etc.

But, in this case, no, I don't believe he needs to transfer. He just needs to point the servers as you have pointed out.
Reply
ChrisGooden Premium
Sorry, I should have been clearer on the expense issue.

What I meant was that the cost, to WA, of setting up the capability to handle transfers between registrars, is a non essential.

Yes you can transfer here - people do it all the time - it sounds as if it is a seamless transfer
Reply
ChrisGooden Premium
Just to clarify the answer given by @ShannonSB - No you cannot.

What Shannon means is that you can transfer your HOSTING just by editing the DNS entry.

But you cannot transfer your DOMAIN (which is the question you asked). Read the answers by @MsMoneyHoney and @rodc above for additional clarification.

ShannonSB Premium
OOPs - I'm sorry for misinforming - I misunderstood the question - thank you for fixing me Chris!!! someone has to keep me in line :)
Reply
MsMoneyHoney Premium
I apologize if my previous reply was confusing. For now, those who already have domain names with another Registrar can "point" their domain using the DNS changes. Yes.

For those who want to actually change Registrars, yes, I imagine that we will, at some point, be able to transfer our Domain Registrar to WA when either Kyle or Carson let us know. It is my understanding that WA cannot receive a transferred domain as yet. So, for now, if you have purchased your domain elsewhere, you can only point it to WA.

If you haven't yet purchased your domain elsewhere, hey! Purchase it from WA direct! Capisce?

Hi Carson, I have a domain that it is time to renew, is there a way to move that domain name here using this new platform?

Having purchased a domain from WA SiteDomain, I went to set up my Website using SiteRubix, but since I am just a Starter member there was not a way to create my free site on my own domain. I can't become a Premium member until my business can pay for the subscription, but I really want to get set up properly, on my own domain. Please help!
Reply
MsMoneyHoney Premium
If you purchased your domain, it's yours no matter where you purchased it from. You own it, you control it. But, only premium members may set up their hosted site on their domain they own. Therefore, you will have to use the SiteRubix free subdomains until such time you become premium. Then, you will just transfer the content over to your own domain hosted here.

Exactly, you can only host domains you own here at WA as a Premium member (as that is part of our Premium service), but you do own the domain and you can host it anywhere you like.

Start with a SiteRubix website for now and when you do upgrade to Premium down the road you will be able to transfer it to this domain.

What happens when you attempt payment? Are you still having issues?

Kyle,
I am going through step 1-3 of the process without any issues. The check for the Domain name was very fast by the way!

When I push 'Continue' to 'Select payment method' I get no response today as I did yesterday.

Two fields in my contact details are yellow; the city and the zip code.

The State/Province and City are the same -- Abu Dhabi in United Arab Emirates (UAE).

I have changed State/Provinve to AD/UAE, but the City field is still yellow, so it looks like it don't like Abu Dhabi. I changed the city to Dubai and the field turned white.

In UAE they don't use a zip code so I yesterday wrote "Not used" in the field.

Today I tried to use my P.O. Box no in the zip field and it turned white, so apparently it needs a number.

But still I can't access the selection of payment method. So now I'm out of options and need some help.

Best regards in anticipation

Kyle,
I tried it again yesterday and it went through and I got my domain name!

I installed it and made a blog as well yesterday and planned to make more keyword research today to get some long tail expressions to start making content..

But to my suprise I discovered that my domain name has been rejected and my money has been refunded.

I will concentrate on jeywordresearch now to find the 'low hanging fruit' to make a new domain.

Yes, it most definitely is. Within the SiteDomains tab, you will be able to manage all of your domains that you have here, including ones that you have purchased through SiteDomains.

A feature of SiteDomains domains is that you can redirect your domains (forward them). You can see this below in the attached screen capture.

OK, got it Kyle.

Couple other things if you don't mind:

1. If a FREE member buys a domain name here, can they use the WordPress builder to build their site, or, is that just for paid members?

2. If I were to buy a domain here and build a website here for a client and they decide they didn't need me anymore, can I transfer/migrate their domain and website to a Host/Registrar of their choosing, i.e. GoDaddy?

3. Is there an appropriate place in WA where we can post a website for sale? Or services? ... like we had in the old WA?

Thanks,
Charlie

Any news on this? I've had someone ask me about transferring their domain names to WA, but don't know how it would work. For instance, they need to wait until the domain name expires right?, and do you risk the chance of losing it once it does; given the lapse in time that it takes to purchase your domain here at WA?

Just to answer a couple of your questions. Wordpress is free for everyone with or without a membership at WA. I actually did a review on this on my website.

http://workonlineusa.com/what-is-wordpress-review

I've seen other training platforms actually using it as well.

As for your second question; this is true. You can transfer domains to a host of your choice. It would be the same if someone wanted to transfer another domain hosted elsewhere to WA's hosting.

Thanks for your help, and I hope my responses were helpful to you as well.

Hey Jonathan:
Thanks for the link. I checked out your review and in the image it said building a site on YOUR OWN DOMAIN is for PREMIUM members, so, that just answered my first question.

As for the second question, I would think what you said is true. I just wanted to confirm with Kyle / Carson that this is indeed possible. And, better yet, if they had a tutorial on how to transfer a site and domain OUT of WA (which goes against their interest, so, I doubt they would have a tutorial on how to do that).

jmatos Premium
I know what you mean. That would be interesting. I would think that it is similar to moving a website to a domain, which SiteManager allowed me to do with the click of a button. Really easy. I haven't found a reason to move hosting so I don't know. I do have issues with my site speed, but that's something that I'll probably be learning within the upcoming training, and I think it is a more of a plugin situation.

I am a newbie to all of this. I have chosen my niche. Considering WA now offers WA members the ability to register their domain right here I have done that as well. I am a confused as to whether to choose to start building my site in the SiteRubix selection to build "A Free Website" or "On A Domain I Own." Any direction anyone can offer is appreciated.

I did the paid domain because I have heard that affiliates don't like to see the "SiteRibrix" attached to your URL. I don't know if that's true or not, but for the $13 I felt it was best to cover myself and just have my own domain. Other members may have a different opinion on this - good luck and let your gut/trainings lead you.

Hi Craig,

We will be working on transferring domains from other registrars to WA, it's been a popular request!

Domains registered at WA can use hosting anywhere in the world by simply updating the DNS. For example, some folks have their own dedicated servers on other web hosts. You can register your domain at WA, the point to your dedicated server by updating your DNS. We do not force you to use WA hosting, although it is packed with features and security you cannot get anywhere else in the world!

This really is a great addition to WA. It seems like a win for everyone, except the other domain registrars of course... ;)

Just a few random thoughts:

-What happens if someone registers a domain through WA and later stops their membership? Are they able to continue to use WA as a domain registrar and just point the name servers to a different hosting provider? If that's not the case, is there some functionality to transfer the domain to another registrar?

-Is there a way to use WA's email service without changing the nameservers to WA's name servers? For example, if someone wanted to host their websites some where else would it be possible just to set the mx records to WA and use WA for domain email?

If you do decide to let people transfer domains in, I'm going to have to definitely consider. I would much rather give my money to WA for domain renewals than godaddy or namecheap.
Reply
Carson Premium
Hey Thomas - great questions!

1 - If someone were to cancel their Premium membership, they can still access their SiteDomains page within WA. They would be able to change their nameservers and point at any other web host of their choice. You can change your nameservers at anytime from the settings menu of each domain you register here at WA.

2 - Email requires you to be a premium member and have your domain hosted at WA. As a starter or cancelled premium member, email, hosting, support, is not included with domains. You could point your DNS at any web host and use their email service.

3 - it's clear that transferring sites in to the WA platform is a popular request. We will be working on this.

- I bought my first domain from namecheap last month. I just checked the website and I don't see the option of $15 for 5 email accounts, as per price comparison chart image Carson posted. The private email account service on namecheap starts at $9.88/year for single user (I think).

- The Email Accounts that comes with every WA SiteDomains domain is the current SiteEmail feature https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/email (which is basically webmail), right? It is not an additional email service being introduced here, correct? I have set up a domain email and forwarder, following Craig's tutorial so just wondering if there is any difference with the WA email service with SiteDomains.

Just wondering aloud. Pardon my confusion.

Thanks Carson!

This is a very, very good added benefit to an already beautiful WA program.
A question.........can existing domains be transferred into the new WA SiteDomain registration?

Way to go guys.

Wayne: A domain name is sort of like property. If you buy it, it is yours. It is your asset. But like property, you pay property tax or with domain names you pay the yearly fee to own the name. If you quit paying your property taxes, the city takes your property away and you do not own it anymore. Same with your domain name. If you don't pay NameCheap the yearly fee you lose the domain name.

So once you have purchased your domain name, like property taxes, you pay to the domain "maintainer" for every. If you quit, you lose your domain name.

If you then went to WA and purchased a new domain name, if you were really lucky the OLD domain name may still be available BUT PROBABLY NOT. You can transfer your domain name to ANY website hosting service that you want your website to run on BUT YOU CAN NOT TRANSFER YOUR DOMAIN NAME from one "maintainer" to another. DAN

Many thanks, Dan. Clears it up for me perfectly. I have two new domains on GoDaddy, I have yet to build websites with.......ultimately, there will be six making up my business plan. Would be nice to have them all in WA maintenance, but as you point out, it's not going to happen that way. But I will definitely put the next 4 in WA, leaving the 2 in GD.
Thank you again.......Wayne

Of course, you can TRANSFER YOUR DOMAIN NAME from one "maintainer" to another.
Why do you say you cannot Dan?

So I guess I'm confused now, Ben. However, I first asked the question of Carson (& Kyle) who should know explicitly.......I'd appreciate their answer to settle the debate.

BenORourke Premium
Oh I see what you mean now. You can transfer between other registrars but not to WA at present.
They are working on it though at the moment.

But just to clarify, you can transfer between Godaddy and Namecheap for example.

I was actually referring to gooddogpoky2's answer and not yours Wayne:)

Wealthy Affiliate is now a one stop shop!

I have a simple question: You say that domain purchasing is available to starter members also, correct? But they won't be able to host it here as starter members, will they? Can they point the domains they purchase here to another hosting company? We're all going to have to tweak our wealthy affiliate reviews, so this is useful information!

Have you set up a way to transfer our ie: Go Daddy accounts to WA. I would like to have everything in one place.

Hi Sharon. There is a tutorial on doing so. You need to enter into your Go Daddy account and fill in their server name the WA hosting address. In Primary: NS1. MYWASHOSTING.COM and in Secondary: NS2.MYWASHOSTING.COM. Check out the entire tutorial by putting 'transfer from GoDaddy to WA' up here as a question. You should be able to trace the tutorial. Good luck.

One question:
Is there a way to buy a domain and just forward it to any URL?

Thanks for all you guys do here!

Gwen: Congratulations on raising 5 kids! You can do anything after that ;) Mom's are awesome, BTW!

Yeah, it seems like at least THEY could set it up to forward, but, I'm wondering if they have an "Admin Panel" like GoDaddy where we can just go in and do it ourselves / anytime. -C

SquidooSlfMstr Premium
Hi John:
Thanks for your comment.

Yes, it is your URL, but, places like GoDaddy allow you to forward your domain to any URL if you so choose. So, let's say you make lots of videos about training dogs, and at the end of the video you say, "Learn How To Train Your Dog Within 7 Days Starting Today! Go to YourDogTrainingURL.com"

Well, you can direct all that traffic to an Affiliate Dog Training course and see if it converts into sales. If not, you can direct it to another Affiliate Dog Training course and see this one converts. Etc.

Of course, you could build a website on your domain, too, instead of forwarding it to another URL. It's just an extra option you can do with domains.

Hope that cleared things up.

Hmmm so we have hosting and domain name at the same place.

A few years ago, my friends’s website got hacked. Not only did the hackers destroy his site, but they also transferred his domain away from his web host and took it over. It took ages for him to prove ownership and get everything back. When your domains are separate, even if someone gets access to your files, your domains are safe (assuming you aren’t using the same login and password).

What additional security measured do you have in place against that happening since you are now providing domain names and hosting as an all in one together package?
Reply
Carson Premium
Hi Derek, that's really scary why happened to your friend. It's not possible to transfer a domain and steal it when registered at WA. A transfer would have to be unlocked by myself personally and identities proven. What happened to your friend cannot happen here with SiteDomains.

And there is more you say? 2016 will definitely be the best year ever (For everyone). The process will be easier and faster, it can't get any better than this.

After reading this announcement, my next domain name will be the new Wealthy Affiliate Child.

Keep up the good work guys, you are the best.

will I still need AWeber?
Reply
gooddogpoky2 Premium
jphe: AWeber is an affordable and easy to use email marketing and autoresponder tool. If I understand it correctly, it has its own email service (incoming and outgoing) but AWeber also interfaces with a number of other programs. So you should not have to leave AWeber just because you start using the WA email service.

WA has its own internet email service that all WA members use. There is no cost in addition for using this email service. So WA has email (works great) but WA does not specifically have a email marketing and autoresponder tool like AWeber. DAN

Thanks Carson, fantastic idea, I have 3 domains at GoDaddy. Can I transfer them to WA? and if possible could you explain how?
Reply
gooddogpoky2 Premium
Hi Alfred: A domain name (on the internet) is your property. You pay either a monthly or a yearly fee to a company like GoDaddy to maintain that property for you. If you quit paying that fee then you lose the property. So if you want to maintain your 3 domain names at GoDaddy you will have to keep paying that maintenance fee. If you stop, you will lose the domain names.

Now if no one wants those names and they are available (Still) when you purchase your domain name at WA, then you will still have the original names. But you will probably have to get new domain names for your sites if you want to purchase a domain name at WA.

Regardless of where you have your website hosted you can use your domain name on ANY Hosting Service whether or not you purchased the domain name at GoDaddy or NameCheap or at WA. DAN

We can buy domains for cheaper at NameCheap $11 (with privacy) and other places for $12. So whats the value we get here?
Reply
gooddogpoky2 Premium
Mark: There are several reasons. First it's all in-house. I originally had to sign up on NameCheap and it was in and out and read and worried that I wasn't doing it right and finally I got it done. When I had a problem in NameCheap and couldn't figure it out I went back to WA and asked Kyle anyway.
Second, if your look at the add-ons with the other Domain for Sale companies, you can see that with all the OTHER stuff that Carson is talking about (not just the domain name) you are getting a better deal on WA anyway.
Third, if you purchase more than one domain name, or refer others to purchase their domain names on WA you get a premium back. Not available (I think) at NameCheap or the others.
Fourth, for those that are actually going to sell WA to others as so many on WA do, you not only get the referral fee from WA Affiliate program gut you would also get the WA Domain Name referral fee.
Fifth, I suspect that Kyle and Carson make a little money by providing the Domain Name service as well as hawking Jaxxy. What's wrong with that? They have put a lot into WA (I am not saying they don't get something back from that) but hey, what's wrong with supporting your alma mater? DAN
Reply
dstaple1490 Premium
My take on your question is that there will always be sales at some of the other domain sites but what you are getting here is convenience.

In the long run, you do not have to do any transfer of a domain name and our time is money. If you really know the technical aspect of transfering a domain then it is okay. For someone who may not know, then the convenience outways the extra 2-3 dollars difference.

Dave.

Hi Carson,

This is a great addition to the Wealthy Affiliate program... I have seen so many questions over the time here about this very subject, and now the one stop shop for a complete solution is available... Cheers to you and Kyle for your constant seeking improvement.. Exactly what it takes to stay relevant!

Down the road from a user perspective, I would like to see this program fleshed out ever further, beyond the website portion of Internet marketing to some of the other crucial aspects of affiliate marketing.

Whether that could include things like a landing and other page building tool, to include hosting of these pages and products on your server, a course on sales funnels, etc. is up to you and Kyle, and this
is just one thing I can think of off the top of my head...

I am sure that you will continue to refine, improve and excel, and I am so happy to be a member that is a beneficiary. I have been talking with some other quite successful IM guys and gals who are also cutting edge folks. My conversation has centered around what you two have created and continue to create...

Raising the standard is a worthy goal and as I move ever deeper into this world, my intention is to do just that... Of course I am following in the footsteps of folks like you and Kyle, and others, but keeping the mindset that all of you have, I am sure I can add whatever little bit to the conversation....

Cheers!
Dave :)
