Hello. I would like to ask if it is worth it to buy my own domain as a beginner? Also, if I won’t be able to continue my Premium membership at WA, in case I push through in buying my own domain, will it automatically replace the website url with siterubix.com or will my website be totally shut off?

Thank you for any response in advance.
All the best,
Peachy

Hi - if you cancel your premium membership here, then you cannot go back to being a free starter again, you would be locked out of the platform.

If you have purchased your own .com domain, you would have to move it to another hosting provider before you cancel. Otherwise, it would go dormant and you wouldn't be able to access it.

It won't go back to being a SiteRubix.

Yes, absolutely buy your domain. It is your online real estate and it grows with time.

Hello. If you are serious about making your business turn into a success then yes it is absolutely important to get your own domain.
Your new domain will replace the siterubix one.

Kind regards

Yes. Without one you don't actually own your website, are at the mercy of a free host, and your SEO will be utter crap as part of your SEO will feed the main site.

Thank you for your insight. So it is important then to buy a domain, because if I don’t then I’m reality I don’t really own the website that I am about to make. Did I understand correctly?

yes because a free website is a subdomain to some companies site like SiteRubix. If you own the domain you can move your website to any hosting account and have freedom of content ownership.

Hi Lisa. Thank you for for responding. This means I would need to pay every month if I would like to keep my domain right? But will my website be shut off if I let go of the domain or will it simply go back to siterubix.com and leave my website running?
