I guess this is where I tell everyone what I like to do...maybe even give some insight into the life of "Kyle". I enjoy travelling the world when I can and fortunately owning an internet business is very accommodating to travel (but it also means that I am always connected lol).

I also like to exercise, play sports (mostly basketball), and of course, Internet Business!

I also like to read in my spare time. Knowledge is a powerful thing. If you educate yourself in things that you are passionate about and that you can "apply" towards your journey to success, you can achieve big things!

I began marketing in college, where I began my journey onto the Internet. I took computer science in school, primarily focusing on programming, but quickly found a love for the business & marketing components of the web. Business has always been an interest of mine. I remember reading jargon-filled business magazines while I was still in high school.

Since the inception of Wealthy Affiliate in Sept, 2005, I have a new found passion -- helping others succeed online. This is not an easiest of tasks, and everyone coming to WA comes from a different background, with a different story, but my (and Carson's) goal is to continue to work towards creating a system that will induce widespread success among the WA community members.

Give me a shout out in the forum and if you want, add me to your buddy list, or send me a message below!

Take Care,

Kyle

PS. I truly look forward to working with you!!

I am totally lost> I went through the 10 lessons. I've got things I need to delete on my website such as About me is entered on my website 3 times, two for i min. only and the one I did first with over 300 words. How do I delete the 2 one minute ones.

Also I don't know how to get the header you have at the very top left
BASKETBALL....

I've been on the computer for 2 days straight and I am ready to give up because I don't know what to do now other than delete everything if I knew how and start all over.

I don't even know how to get these questions answered. Very frustrating.

this website building normally isnt something i wouldnt consider doing because i figure i cant rap my head around it which is whats happening now. in order for me to grasp what im doing here i need to be shown like in a "hands on" matter. im watching your videos and im still sitting here with a big question mark over my head. with this that the other. i mean i know what my interest are, it just doesnt seem like what im thinking for a website and whats being said in the videos for a set up website is quite the same which is where the confusion is setting in plus all the other features and that stuff. i went to school for electronics but was terrible with IT stuff. still am. in other words im not rolling anywhere yet with this unfortunately.

This industry was new to everyone at one point, myself included. Back when I started I had no knowledge of the Internet business and this. As you move forward, you will get the hang of this and things that you are overwhelmed with by now, will become second nature.

You can learn this and I can assure that everything you need is here at WA to create any level of success you want! I really do look forward to seeing you progress as you move forward Micheal! Let me know if you need a hand if you ever feel even a bit stuck.

I appreciate your personal attempt to get me the help I needed. I am still too broke to go on and get down right now. WA was suppose to be my way out of poverty, but the snag in getting done was too long and now I can not finish right now. I am rather depressed. I just can not justify the expense if I am not able to make money. Hope to be back, the education here was fantastic! Dee

Your writing is fine Sami and your goal of your content is not to actually "write" so much, rather you are communicating. That is all it is.

You communicate all day, now it is just a matter of applying those skills (which I can tell you are good at) to your online business. There is a really awesome post that I want to refer you to here that I think will give you some new found perspective on this topic: Trust me, your writing is more than fine and if you ever need a hand or want me to to look at your content, let me know.

Yes I'm new thanks for having me I was wondering how to add product to the site I build? I haven't started building it yet I just wanted to know like for Amazon for example my site is built I would go to Amazon place my website under the affiliate info than like would I copy and paste the product or is there a promote link that I would paste to my site and obtain a picture and place that as well

You will get there as you go through the training, the first focus with your website is to build out the foundation, the content and get rankings. Once you have rankings and traffic then you can focus on what you are going to promote.

There are 10,000's of affiliate programs and millions of products you are going to be able to promote as an affiliate, don't ever worry about there being nothing to promote within a given niche. There will likely be 100's if not 1,000's of things you can promote. ;)

There is no sense in putting to much thought into what you are going to promote until you have content in place and an audience to promote to. You will definitely get there though!

Hi Kyle, I have a question regarding making another account from the same location. My dad wants to make an account with WA as well, but he wants a separate account from mine. We have two different laptops but we live under the same roof.

He tried to message in the questions and answers page outside WA but he didn't get any responses yet. He really wants to do this too. To succeed with WA.

Can you tell us of possible solutions for this, besides having to share one account?

Thank you!

Kyle, I am a digital artist who specializes in mentoring other artist. I am looking for a website theme that will attract other artist with a contemporary look. Any suggestions on a theme?

I feel certain that I will become a premium member. Is it advisable to do so now so I may have more website design options?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Choose a theme that is simple, ideally with a white background and black text (as this is the most readable).

I tend to avoid themes with too many bells and whistles as the focus of your website will be your content and your content will make your website look visually appealing to your audience.

So choose something simple, yet elegant and if you ever need to change down the road, you can easily do so within Appearance => Themes.

There are over 3,000 to choose from there and you will also be able to upload your own from there.

I have created some training on how to do this that you should check out:

This is all new to me as I develop a strategy to expand my mentoring programs to a much larger universe. I am a retired college professor with an MBA and also a Masters of Photography. I am a nationally recognized digital artist. The draw back is that I am "old school" which means that I have very limited understanding on online marketing.

Hi Kyle. I was wondering if you'd ever considered an editor for the training course material. Not a software-based editor, but a live, human editor. I've found a number of typographical and grammatical errors throughout the first course/phase of both the certification program and the Affiliate Bootcamp. I would be happy to help edit this content, but I wouldn't know how to go about it. I think leaving messages as to where I find such errors would end up being very bulky and confusing. If you would like to consider such help, and would consider me to help with that, I would like to chat with you about it, and try to figure out how to go about doing so in an effective manner.

Can a premium member get more memory, bigger cpu, storage and more bandwidth if they out grow the standard system configuration you have now to be more competitive with blue host.

The reason for asking is what i'm trying to create i'm wanting to grow as big as possible with no run down on those things that bluehost provides which I know this is a good system for the majority of bloggers but if i go all out with full on marketing and grow this business I may need more of thoughs increases in memory, cpu, storage, and definitely bandwidth for more monthly visiters.

I'm willing to pay more for the service increase if possible when i need to upgrade once I get to that point.

bluehost doesn't provide all the traning and social atmosphere you all do so I'm willing to pay what they charge for their ultimate wordpress package which is $130.00 plus your 50.00 a month for the e-mail subscription, training, and social networking so you'll be coming out on it when I need to upgrade.

If you want me to get you the details for that package I'll do that just let me know.

also if I outgrow this after it gets past the incubator period and training on here if I need to upgrade and for some reason I out grow this package you provide then I'll use your system till then and then transfer to bluehost after I out grow what you have to offer.

Thank you for having me and letting me learn on your platform and I hope you will consider more upgrades for potential costumers and me when we need more capacity.

If you want to promote WA and work within the "make money niche", go through the Affiliate Bootcamp training. If you want to build a business within another niche, head through the Get Started Here training.

Focus on just one though. You are going to be much more successful if you focus on one business/website versus trying to do too many things at once. You can always diversify down the road.

Hope this helps you out here Kristen!

Hi Kyle, I am on the part of the training where the instruction is to place adsense and affiliate marketing together in one page and then only adsense in a page and then only affiliate.

I already have adsense but when I go to all posts and pages the adsense is present in all of them. How do I accomplish the instructions? Do I cancel adsense and subscribe again?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sorry, you want to add adsense or you want to remove it? I am confused as to exactly what you are trying to do here, it is completely optional though whether or not you want to add adsense to your website. I typically don't as I would rather generate revenue through the promotion of affiliate programs.

Hi, Kyle:
I am Daniel. I just decided to start a few days ago with this online business. For a long time, I wanted to start my own business. By profession, I am a college professor, an instructor of ESL, Spanish, and Humanities (History, World Religions, etc.), and worked in academia for about 15 years in the US, until I had a set of adverse circumstances that ruined my life, and I had to start again financially. I am looking for an occupation that provides me a decent living like I had before this setback happened, and also I want to be independent, I don't want to depend on a salary anymore.That's why I am willing to put the time and effort for this to work. I need to get out of these financial constraints. If this system can help me get an income in short time, I am willing to invest part of the income I get to continue growing it. For a long time, I wanted to start with internet marketing and looked around and saw many scams. If this really starts making some money, I will try my best to make it work. I look forward to your assistance in this path.Talk to you soon.
Regards.
Daniel

I was telling Stephan that this was something I've been looking for to legally supplement my SSDI income and living as a legally blind entrepreneur.

Hi Kyle,

Hope all is going well!

Am close to deciding on premium membership.

Just few questions please - if I take on premium membership, can I cancel at anytime? And how do I cancel?

I am in South Africa - how would I get commissions paid from say Amazon for example, which sells items around the world in US$ and other currencies?

Thanks!
Sailesh
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, you are in full control of your membership. You can cancel at any time if you are no longer interested in building a business.

All companies pay differently, most offer at minimum check payment. For example here at Wealthy Affiliate we pay via Paypal as our primary payment method, but we can also pay via check if you reach over a certain threshold. :)

As I said though, every company is different and they will state how they pay when you become part of their affiliate program.

Hi Kyle.

I was wondering if anyone else has had issues with their bank not allowing me to use my debit card for WA? I first thought I had been hacked. But finally was able to speak to someone who said my upgrade to premium status had been blocked due to it being an international payment. Is there anyway around this other than me purchasing a prepaid debit card ?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Your bank may be blocking your payment for one reason or another. We are a Canadian company (might be international depending on where you live) and often times online transactions are blocked.

I couldn't pay on Apple.com the other day for this very reason, but if you contact your credit card company they should be able to et you sorted.

Kyle,

I am not sure if WA has already built a policy around this. I wrote this to Thomas Paul and wanted to get you in on the conversation. It has to do with taxes that I will pay and my clients (retailers) will pay due to "state nexus laws."

Since I read a post on taxes and got to read potpie girl's entries about what was new then "nexus tax laws." (2011) I thought I would send you a link the retailers' affiliates have to be concerned with.

We could literally lose our contracts if certain online companies decide to end their affiliate programs to pay their taxes. Here is the link: https://blog.taxjar.com/states-sales-tax-click-thru-nexus/.
(You will have to copy and paste it, I can't figure out how to make it an active link)

It only affects affiliates if companies choose to end their affiliate programs, basically to pay their sales taxes. Thanks again for all the info.


Your friend,


Jason

Amazon is the only company that has done this, and most states are actually now allowed (they have pulled the plug on this policy). So Nexus Tax laws is certainly something that you should not be concerned about.

Hi Kyle, I wanted to use my name BarneyEdwards as my username because a lot of people know me and recognise my work by my full name.

If you don't have the budget to upgrade at the moment, that is completely fine. You should work through the Getting Started training (within the "Get Started Here" button in the menu) and take action.

By lesson 4 you are going to have your own niche website up and running. This is the starting point of your business and is the foundation that is going to lead you to success down the road.

When you are ready to upgrade, I know you are going to absolutely love it but at your own pace.

That is all of the courses within bootcamp (7 in bootcamp, 5 in OEC).

Where are you at with your website? Have you already completed all 70 lessons and tasks? AND YES, you definitely want to be building your website as you are going through the training. That is why there are tasks at the end of every lesson and by the time you reach the end of either "run" of training you will have a full scalable website/business in place. ;)

A couple of things: first, and please understand this well: I do NOT have $359 for a yearly membership. I barely have $49/month. My only regular income is a monthly $1,187 social security check. $359 is way too big a chunk out of that for me to afford. Secondly, but equally important, I was under the impression that the $49/month was and is all-inclusive. I cannot afford to pay "extra" fees for (1) a website, (2) a "domain" (whatever the heck that is), (3) a "traffic fee" and (4) etc. etc. etc. I am wondering--what would be less expensive: sticking with the training (I just finished lesson 3), or switching over to the Affiliate Bootcamp? If I go to the Bootcamp, should I still finish the regular training?
Reply
Kyle Premium
It is all inclusive. The only other potential cost is a domain, if you want to own your own .com domain (which is $14 per year).

We teach free traffic methods in the early stages so no costs there, and the entire website platform and state of the art hosting is included in your membership here.

If you want to promote WA and work within the "make money niche", go through the Affiliate Bootcamp training. If you want to build a business within another niche, head through the Get Started Here training.

Focus on just one though. You are going to be much more successful if you focus on one business/website versus trying to do too many things at once. You can always diversify down the road.

Hope this helps you out here Paul!

You can also find this within the SiteRubix menu under the "SiteSupport"(to the left). This is where you should go if you ever have loading issues with your website, email issues, plugin/theme issues, or if you accidentally do something that adversely impacts your website.

This support is 24/7 and upon submitting your ticket we will look into it right away Marlene!

I have also spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Fay. :)

Hi Kyle,
There appears to be something wrong with my website not updating the information from word press. I've tried to change the date, time zone and the way I would like the date to display but when I refresh my website it still reflects the same information and format. I would like to know what is going on as it's not allowing me to do anything here basically. Thanks..

That is dependent on the timezone people are visiting your site within. There typically aren't any settings that you can add to change this, so this could be a theme issue.

If you want me to have a lot of, drop me your website URL and I will have a look. :)

You can add these custom menus to organize your top menu in any way in which you like, as well as create sub-menus (for themes that will support this). You can also use these custom menus to add within your side widgets on your website (within your sidebar).

Here is a tutorial on how to create custom menus: I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!

Hello, Kyle, I need your input, please.

Quick Background
My website is called uRpotential. This is the business model: "Helping You Transform In 4 Critical Areas, Financial freedom, Ketogenic Lifestyle, Fitness & Living In Victory.

All these areas I believe are needed to be your potential, hence the website and business name.

My Question
Is it ok to have these 4 niches in the one website, or would you advise against it? Or is it Ok because it is the services my business offers?

Some guidance on this would really be appreciated
Reply
Kyle Premium
I would not try to tackle all 4 niches within one website. I would focus on just one, this isn't reality 4 different websites.

So choose the one that you are most interested in as your starting point.

Hi Kyle,
I need your help or anyones if possible please. As I am only at the begginning of doing my first web site, new to the training. I was wondering if someone could send me a lnk to one of your own sites, just so i can see an example of what ppl are doing. Not for copy purposes but to get a jist of what the difference is between a companies web sit (Amazon, EBay,) and a niche. I am up to the part where it's "about me" and all the sites I have gone to do not have this in there "about" section.

People share their websites as they wish, many people do and you will see them within their profiles while many people like to keep their content and activities private (in fear their ideas will get stolen).

Here are the sites I use within the training that are both very successful:

waystoavoidscamsonline.com
howtolosebellyfattoday.com

And here is one Jay is using within his Live Classes as a case study that is also very profitable:

footballsnackhelmets.com

The training here will walk you through the EXACT process of building a very successful site, with no experience. We walk you through the proper steps you should take, give you the tasks within the lesson that will lead to the creation of your business, and we provide you with all the tools, training, websites, hosting, support and networking here within WA to create, grow and manage your business online.

The only missing piece is you and your hard work. If you ever need any help as you move through the training, just ask. You have a ton of support here within the community, myself included.

I finished my very first article! I'm so excited and thrilled to have accomplished that. Please check it out sometime!

However, I did want to ask you something. I'm very hesitant about purchasing the premium membership.

Do you believe if I continue with this entrepreneurship., I could be successful? I truly would love your feedback.

Everybody earns money at a different rate, so it really depends on the person. I have actually created a discussion on this that will put things into perspective for you here: Have a read of that, I know it will give you a lot of insight into this exact topic. ;)

The first month is typically your foundation building stage. In order to build a website that earns you consistent revenue, you need this foundation. After this, you are going to start seeing traffic and as you build this out, there are many different ways in which you can generate revenue.

Personally it took me into my 3rd month of busting my butt to make my first dollar online, by month 6 though I was making consistent income and by the year mark, I was almost full time.

But guess what would have happened if I quit during those first two "trying" months. I would not be where I am at today. Just wanted to put things into perspective for you.

I am in this journey with you, so is the community here at WA. If you want to jump in, work hard, take action, and persist. Amazing things can and will happen!

Hello Kyle, as of now I have a few questions, one: I already have a website for affiliate marketing, can I use my website for this program or should I use the website in which you all offer? Next question, if I can use my website, can it be integrated within the WA program? I hope that the second question makes since.
Reply
Kyle Premium
You don't have to use the website platform here if you don't want. You can use an existing site that you already have set-up with the training here or you can start fresh.

Sometimes with an existing site there may be some things that you have done in the past that could be hurting your rankings (backlinks, spun content, duplicate content, low quality content), so starting fresh and doing things properly from the start can be advantageous. But this is totally up to you.

Either way, I am here to help you along the way Timothy!

Hi Kyle,

I got an email from WA with this text:

A recording of the most recent LIVE webinar titled "2017 WA Fall Hot Seat!" is now available within your WA account:

The system didn't let me put the link because I am not Premium.

However, when I tried to watch it, I was asked to pay for the Premium membership, even though the email I received said: is now available within your WA account.

Is there a mistake or is this just a promotion to the Premium Membership for new members?

So happy to be in WA. Have come from SFM where everything is very long winded. I already love the 'get to the point' training offered by WA. Yay!! Really hoping this is the last business system I need to look at before making my millions. ; ) and being free !

So wonderful to have you as part of the community here at WA Leith and I definitely look forward to working with you! Get in touch with me if you ever feel "stuck" anywhere along the way. :)

Yes, you can earn money on the free membership. In saying this, generating money in the first week or month prior as a Starter is like having an your introduction course to becoming a surgeon and expecting to perform surgery within the first month.

The first month is typically your foundation building stage. In order to build a website that earns you consistent revenue, you need this foundation. After this, you are going to start seeing traffic and as you build this out, there are many different ways in which you can generate revenue.

Personally it took me into my 3rd month of busting my butt to make my first dollar online, by month 6 though I was making consistent income and by the year mark, I was almost full time.

But guess what would have happened if I quit during those first two "trying" months or had instant revenue expectations. I would not be where I am at today (going on 12 years full time!). Just wanted to put things into perspective for you.

I am in this journey with you, so is the community here at WA. If you want to jump in, work hard, take action, and persist.

You will have some awesome things accomplished by the time you finish just the first 10 lessons of the getting started training and you will be prepared to build a very successful business online within the Premium membership.

But do upgrade at your own pace and take action on the tasks. Action is what will lead you to success!

Is your niche for children or adults? If you're trying to tackle both, I think you're being a little bit too broad with that and you will need to narrow things down.

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Are you still having issues with that? You can reinstall this plugin if you want, it shouldn't have disappeared though and it should be available within the back end of your website (unless you explicitly deleted it).

Hi Kyle, It's nice to hear that you are a Canadian. I'm also a Canadian & lived in BC before coming to the States. ;-)

My learning is going a little slow here because of my other online course (Diploma in Interior Designing) that I recently started before starting this. The course load is a little heavy with that course too. (I actually should've stayed on starter for a few months)

I'm sort of stuck with my niche; I do want it to be under Interior Designing, but having difficult time narrowing it down, or deciding what to write. I am wondering whether to discuss what I learn from my course, but I don't know whether it would be ok with the institute.

I did look for help through the community, but still I'm struggling with the task, and I haven't been able to progress beyond Course 1- Level 4.
I'd really appreciate your idea on this!
Thank you so much!

Hello Kyle. I definitely will not forget your name as my youngest son has the same name. I am struggling a little with a concept I have heard it so many times you must do something you are passionate about. I have changed my career from working in an office after for 27 years for a big blue chip company,back to a trade repairing power tools which i thought was more me doing things hands on. But when your business then is not going so well, and you don't have the income like before and cannot support all of your family's needs it becomes very uncomfortable and you start to question , "Am i doing the right thing for me?" When the money is coming in and you are comfortable it seems much easier to see the way forward but on the other hand sometimes you have to get squeezed into a corner before you make major changes in your life to yourself as well. I am hoping that is what this is.

Thanks for your encouragement and kind words. I look forward to a new way forward and life for me and my family.

Kyle,
The best way to keep a person renewing their premium membership is to make sure initially they get involved with promoting WA's affiliate program. They are locked in to paying if they want the commissions earned on the people they have recruited. Selling other products not associated with WA
gives them no incentive to remain after
they learn what to do. Plus it is a faster track to earning commissions.
Should you have a program promoting this to all new members as a way of quickly starting to earn an income initially while they pursue the other choices including follow up e-mails and offers of help to set this up thru Bing and google ads?

And if you do not have the time to do this, I could and would on some type commission basis.

I would think getting more people involved in the affiliate program would drastically increase your retention rate on renewals.
Just a thought from an old retired Sales guy that is definitely promoting this with his small group.

It is up to someone what they want to promote and we recommend people go in a direction that they're passionate or interested in.

Where in anything I said indicate I was suggesting that WA force anybody to do anything.
I simply was purposing a business plan that would promote the affiliate program you have more aggressively to the newbees as something that would make sense to them as well as being a smart business move for your organization for the above reasons I stated.
They would still have the choice, but be encouraged to start with the affiliate program initially as it is much easier way to go, then keep working that and go into the other niche selling.

I am not sure which niche I should select, and would like your opinion on which one would be best for me. Maybe I do not understand how the niche is supposed to attract online shoppers. Your input would be greatly appreciated.
Here is my list of niche possibilities;
a) Online shopping
b) Easy shopping
c) Online shopping retirees - since I am a retiree. Would this limit my online shopping to this target only?
d) Online shopping for holidays
e) Parkinson's - since I have Parkinson's, I could do more research on Parkinson's. The problems I see; how would I associate this with online shopping, and would this limit my target online shopping audience?

Your new host is responsible for the inbound transfer and should be able to help you out with this. Do know that after your membership has been cut off, you will not be able to access these details or your SiteManager, so make sure you grab these details prior to this.

Yes, As he moved to the training is to walk you move through the process of organizing your menus.
- when organizing your menu, one the tabs on there is HOME, is this necessary or can I delete?

It is not necessary to have a Home menu, no.

- then i see all of them are pages but ABOUT is a post, is this correct?

You can add these custom menus to organize your top menu in any way in which you like, as well as create sub-menus (for themes that will support this). You can also use these custom menus to add within your side widgets on your website (within your sidebar).

Here is a tutorial on how to create custom menus: I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!

When you are using the SiteComments platform, your goal is to add to the dialogue of the content and to be highly relevant to the content within the post.

If the post is about "how to lose weight fast online", then your comment should be about this exact topic. Ask a question, offer insight into your experiences within the topic, etc. You ARE NOT critiquing a website, you are not commenting on how you like the layout and you are do not want to comment things like "Great post" as it offers no value.

Here is some training on how the SiteComments platform works: You should watch this before you make another comment as it will offer you a good deal of perspective here.

Hi Kyle,

I have 3 questions:
1. MENUS: Can menus with drop downs be created for future content that I'm working on but not ready to post?
2. CHECK MY WORK: Up to Lesson 7, I believe I have completed my work correctly, however how do I check to make sure I'm on the right track. I feel ver uneasy because I don't know what I'm doing.
3. Affiliate Links: Can I have more than 1-Affiliate Program Link , for lack of a better description, within the content of my site. In other words I may link mostly for Amazon, but then I may have other links to affiliate programs for different products within the same content. It's difficult to explain, but hope you understand .

1. MENUS: Can menus with drop downs be created for future content that I'm working on but not ready to post?

No, don't add placeholder content to your website. Add content as you create it, there is no benefit creating content or menu items before you have the content ready.

2. CHECK MY WORK: Up to Lesson 7, I believe I have completed my work correctly, however how do I check to make sure I'm on the right track. I feel ver uneasy because I don't know what I'm doing.

You can let me know any questions that you have or I can have a look at your website. Up to you .

It's difficult to explain, but hope you understand .

You can promote as many affiliate programs on your website as you like.

Over time you will likely be promoting many different products/services on your website and this will take place as your build out content and you see a good match between an audience and a product.

Remember, your role as an affiliate is to connect your traffic (an audience) with a product or service that will benefit them. This will be based on the context and relevance of the content.

Hi Kyle, I have discovered that I have a major problem. When recording my domain name I inadvertently added an extra 's' to the word essential and thus my domain is incorrect.
healingessentialoils.siterubix.com this email ID is incorrect and I cannot fix it. I went to Godaddy and nothing is available there, plus checked a few other and can't find a domain that matches my website. However, my tagline is available, Natures Natural Ingredients, can I change my website name to that, and point the domain to siterubix.com without having to redo the entire thing?

Please do go ahead and take a look see to let me know if I'm on the right track and let me know about the domain and I can move forward.

I'm writing my content so that I can add the menus, and move forward.

Thanks Kyle

This domain looks fine:

http://healingessentialoils.siterubix.com/

I don't see any extra "s" within your domain, it is spelled correctly. Where exactly is your issue here?

When you log into Siterubix Site Manager, you will see the incorrect domain listed as "healingesssentialoils.siterubix.com" and if I try to log in on Chrome to see the site using "healingessentialoils.siterubix.com" it doesn't show up, but it does with the incorrect spelling.

Well it appears both domains are taken, so someone might have the other domain already (ie, it is taken).

Thanks for your reply; any suggestions as to how I should handle this as it does affect my website name as well.

You could purchase a domain name and move your website over to it.

When you choose a domain, you are going to want to choose something that is "brandable" versus something that has keywords within it. The reason this is the case is because as you build out your website, you can target as many keywords as you like within the content (that is how you will rank).

I have created a discussion here outlining the process and what to look for when choosing a domain name: This should help you out here and if you ever want to run any domains by me, simply let me know and I will give you some feedback.

PS. You can host up to 25 of your own domains here within the Premium membership on our state of the art hosting platform. :)

Hi, Kyle, I purchased a domain through WA just now, and thought it would automatically update to my website...wrong answer. I didn't follow the directions for if you "purchased outside" of WA, thinking because I purchased through SiteDomain it would automatically update or at least give me instruction as to how to connect it to an existing site but it did. What do I need to do to move this new domain to my current website?

Thanks so much
