Hello to everyone at WA.

I have a question regarding creating and running a website for a company, and can I run it through WA?

I was recently approached after my

Derek has a valid point. If you decide to do this website you can take the skills you have learned here and host a wordpress site with another hosting provider. So building the site would be the same.

Hi Mary.

I did think about going through Wordpress directly, as the building of the site would be more or less the same as on WA. It just works out to be much more expensive. Where on WA I can host up to 50 sites and only pay one membership, with Wordpress I would have to pay for each site. This is what I have understood from my research. I'm open to correction?

You can get hosting elsewhere Cathryn. I have hosting for an unlimited amount of sites elswhere.

Derek

I will will have to look into it more. I'm really not a guru in all the web stuff so have to do my due diligence.

Using the WA hosting is fine, but should you leave WA for any reason the site will be lost.

Just a thought.

Derek

Hi Derek.

Should the client decide to that they want to change their host at a later stage would I not be able to transfer the site?

Thanks in advance.
Cathryn

Yes you can transfer the domain at any time.

Derek

That works out great for me. The only reason I would leave WA is affordability. So if I have clients paying hosting fees while I am hosting them through WA they are basically paying my subscription for me so I wouldn't have to worry about the affordability anymore.

Thank you so much for your help.

Hi Cathryn,

I believe you’ve received very good advice from @smartketeer.

It’s a matter between you and your prospective customer but my feeling is you need to be careful the responsibilities and liabilities for each of the parties are clear.

In particular, you ought to be careful not to take on any liabilities and when you look at it from this perspective the answer to your question should be clear!

Good luck,
Will

Don't see why not and since you are a premium member host the website on this platform, it is part of your package so use it...you do not have to pay for anything extra so go for it, if you decide in a year to move out of WA then you can transfer your site to another hosting company.

Thank you for your feedback. Nice to know it can be moved. Not that I would. I enjoy working on my website through WA. Makes my life so much easier. Once again thank you for your advise.

Hi Cathryn,

Literally speaking you can.

What they need to understand: that will be YOUR website ... And that's true even if you'll decide to use an external hosting service

What I'm trying to say: regardless of where you are hosting the site, if you are the person who will purchase the domain, that will be YOUR site. Which is quite different from being an administrator for a site owned (registered) by the company itself.

Your rights, attributions, responsibilities, etc will be different in these two cases, and I think these are the important points that must be analyzed in this situation. Once you and the company have a clear view on these issues, the hosting platform it's almost irrelevant

Wow, that is something I didn't think of.

This will need to be discussed. which would you suggest is best. Them buying the domain and me doing everything else or me doing it all and simply billing them monthly. I think they will want to have the safety of knowing it belongs to them at the end of the day.

Thank you for your feedback. :)

You''re welcome Cathryn!

The simple and quick answer is yes.

You can create 50 sites if you are a premium member and you can have them all hosted with WA or anywhere else for that matter.

What sites you create and what they are about is entirely up to you as long as you are paying your monthly/yearly subscription.

My advice - go for it.

Enjoy your Monday.

Great, thanks for your feedback. Do you know if there is a specific way to create a store in WA? (or some type of website that is similar to an online store)

You don't actually say what the company does.

There are quite a few sites that have online stores such as Shopify and WooCommerce but is this the type of store you, or should I say the company is interested in?

Sorry, they supply building materials, tools etc to re sellers. I don't know exactly which type of site they would like if they want re sellers to purchase from the site or if they simply want it to be like a large online product brochure accompanied by product information and pricing.

I am doing research to see the options that I can offer them. I would hate to pitch an idea and not give them options to choose from without even knowing what it is.

will send you a PM directly

Thank you for all your help :)

You are welcome and did you get the PM?
