Hi! I started with a free website, but I haven’t done any content yet. I just upgraded. Can I just delete the free website and start with my Domain page ?

You may start with a siterubix subdomain around a focused niche and build up content and until you are satisfied with your niche and name, down the line have your own dot com, as some affiliate programs do not work with a subdomain. Cost of which is $15 yearly each privacy included. You can then move your siterubix to your dot com applying the move feature found within the site manager which is an easy process.

Also please be aware that your desired dot com domain name may not be necessarily available at time of purchase.

Another reason is that if you made a mistake on a dot com domain, you won't be able to edit the URL, you'd have to purchase a new one.

You can use the move feature found within your site manager to move your siterubix subdomain to your dot com, when you are ready. It is a simple process.

You would need to wait up to 30 days (Kyle's recommendation) for 301 redirects to be completed and for the search engines. After of which you MAY delete the subdomain however you could keep it for longer if hosting space is not an issue or for testing purposes such as themes, plugins, scripts, coding etc

Yes, you can do that. The thing is that you have to pay around $15 for a .com. I think many people practice with the .siterubix page and then purchase another website when they know a bit more about how they want to approach their business. You can't change a .com but have to purchase another one to make a change. Its up to you.

Yes, you can delete it.
If you like what you have created on your free
http://siterubix.com
website keep using it and then when you come to level 2 training Lesson 2 you will receive instructions on how to MOVE it to your dot com domain website. That way you do not have to redo what you have already done. The MOVE moves your theme, settings, plugins, images, posts, pages. It is such a great feature. .

Hi - yes, you can, but have you actually purchased a .com domain? It is not included in your membership subscription.

Hi! No I haven’t purchased a .com yet. I actually thought it was included with my membership. But its ok. I will put content on .siterubix and later I will move to a domain. When I know a little bit more what I am doing.

Yes, that's a good idea, in case you change your mind about your niche, as you get further along.

You can too, or use it for testing new themes, plugins, scripts or any other. Totally your choice.

To delete, I click the details on the name in question in site manager, onward next page scroll all the way to the bottom and click delete.

You can delete it if you wish to, and start another one, I like the answers you have, especially the one about putting content on your site Rubix site until you are sure about your niche and the domain name, because once you purchase a dot com, you cannot change it, so you really have to be sure before you purchase a dot com.

All, the content you put on your Site Rubix, site will be moved to your dot com site safely without losing anything.

So don't worry about that.
