Or do you operate a blog with a business/niche domain?
Is it worth running a blog for business

Hi, Chigs

I have a domain with my name but I haven’t done anything with it yet.

When I was getting a Masters degree in healthcare informatics we had to create an “electronic portfolio” on a NorthWestern University subdomain. It’s essentially my CV and work experience.

Maybe I’ll have it transferred to my domain at WA.


Thanks 👍🏼

Many actually.

However more accountability required here, you have to live up to your visitors expectations. Your name is on the line lol.

Yes, very true 😂

I set up a website based on my name and associated email addresses right back when the internet was starting out. I use it for personal stuff only.

Thank you 😊

I have my, Chigs, but as far as I can remember it has nothing on it right now!


Thanks, Jeff 👍🏼

You're welcome, Chigs!


None of our business blogs use our name.
We have noticed that many well known MMO business bloggers use their name.

Thanks and you're right. Many top people do use their names 👍🏼

My name domain is my personal blog and my niche domain is my business blog... and my other niche domain is my MMO blog.

Is it worth it to have a domain with your name? I think so... whether you use it for business or personal blog is really up to one's preference.

There are several internet marketers (some even well known) who use their name domain for their internet business.

Hope this helps you.

Thank you so much for your reply. Much appreciated :)

Hi all,

This may be a silly question!

Where do you find all recordings from the weekly live webinars?



Classes tab top menu

If you want a specific tutor for example Kyle, see more classes.

Thank you, Abie 😊👍🏼
After having time off due to personal reasons, now I'm ready to get back and watch certain training videos and turn my blog on 😊👍🏼

That's so great Chigs and most welcome!

John’s got you covered. Have a good day, Chigs. 👍🏻

How to move a website out of wa hosting?

How to move a website out of wa hosting?

asked in
Everything Wordpress

Hi people,

Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to move a website out of WA hosting? What is the procedure?



I have full instructions on my website, but I can't give you the link here as it would violate WA's policies. Search Google for "move website from wealthy affiliate" (without the quotes), and you'll find the article with my name on it near the top of the results page. Or send me a private message and I'll give you the link.

Thank you 😊

Find out from your host what you need to do.
Make sure you backup your site. We would agree that all in one migration works well.

Thanks :)

You are welcome.

If migrating back it up with AIO WP Migration plugin and then ask your new hosting support for assistance.

They'd give you instructions on the how to.

Thanks, Abie :)

You're very welcome!

make a backup of the site is the first and most important step...
this way if anything goes wrong you have a copy of your site to restore...
and make sure you can restore it... use a siterubix site to test this....
if you are only changing hte hosting then you have two ways to do this...
you can ask the new hosting comapny if they provide a service for transfering your site...if they do and it is free let them...
or you can change the name servers under websites>>sitedomains...settings to the new hosting...
unfortunately wa only have nameservers available so if you need any other information added then sitesupport will need to do this...
and essentially that's it....
if you are transferring hte domain yourself you wil lneed to restore your site onto it at the new hosting....
if you are transferring hte registrar as well then you can get your epp code from websites>>sitedomain settings transfer domain and request epp code which will be emailed to the account holder...
once you have it you will need to turn the lock off for this to be moved...
if you find that your membership runs out before you mover or transfer your site then you can log in directly to your domains via
this will be the only place you can get to and there is no support if your membership has finished the best idea is to get everything relocated before your membership runs out....


Thanks, Phil :)

no worries...
you leaving us Chigs.....

NO, not leaving at all LOL

Thanks :)

Welcome wishing you well Chigs

Personal branding vs business branding, which one is good?

Personal branding vs business branding, which one is good?

asked in
Pay Per Click Marketing

Been think alot lately about personal branding Vs business branding.

Which one would you choose and why?

Your comments are appreciated.


I am not a fan of putting myself out there as a brand.
If I was selling advice and my skills then personal branding is important, and I would do it.

I do believe we should have an about me page and we should state our values and a bit about our personalities for our readers to feel more comfortable with us and build trust.

I do believe in having a brand and building it up.


Thanks, Alex 😊👍🏼

Good question, Chigs. I think it might depend in part on the niche and your potential audience. For my dog or vegan food niches, I see the audience as needing to feel me, personally. But that might be different for another niche, such as some electronics (maybe?)

I'll be following along to see what others think.

Thanks 😊👍🏼

I have been and am still pondering the same question, Chigs. What I have found is that it depends on what you provide your audience and if you are comfortable putting your name on the line.

I ended up with a business brand as I wasn¨t comfortable using my name as the brand yet.


Thanks, Roy👍🏼
I am more favourable with a business brand. Still deciding.

It would depend upon the niche and its purpose.

For those who choose to be entrepreneurs and create their own products and services such as books, seminars, website building, it seems that personal branding is becoming more and more popular.

For affiliate marketers who sell others products, it seems that a brand is the way to go.

Thank you 😊👍🏼
Appreciate your comment, very helpful 🙏🏼



I would go with business branding, Chigs, but then, my Brand--Jeff & the Blog Dogs could be used for both! You have to decide what your Brand will be!


Thanks, Jeff 😊👍🏼

You're very welcome, Chigs!

Hi Chigs,

We've chatted previously on this tutorial: or are you looking for something different?

Hope you find this helpful.

No, this is exactly what I was looking for 😊👍🏼

Make sure you read Diane's latest blog on the first message sign-ups receive. There is a big change and it will help you to write your first response to a referral. .

Yes, read it 👍🏼👍🏼

Found it very interesting and beneficial that Kyle is trying to get starter interaction going.

Hi buddy, yep I’ve used it and pretty easy. Looks like Abie has you covered with where to find it. All instructions are found there as well.

Thanks, Stephen 😊👍🏼

Oh wow. Thanks, Abie 👍🏼☺️

You are super welcome Chigs!

Enjoy a fruitful day!

I will certainly have a relaxing one today and will be darting in/out from WA ☺️👍🏼

The training link is spot on. Would the message go out to all members or only to members who joined via your link?

I would assume yours Chigs! the folks who joined you under your referrals tab

Thanks, Abie 👍🏼

Much obliged and best wishes.
