Once again; the title pretty much has the question: If a Member who has not signed up for the paid Plan yet: If that Member signs up and pays $49.00 and after the first month

Hello Michael

The starter membership is free forever but once you upgrade you can't go back to the starter membership. You can cancel your premium membership anytime from your account settings.

But if you cancel your membership you will be locked out of Weatlhy Affiliate and you won't be able to access the platform without rejoining as a premium member.

You will also lose any websites you have hosted here so make sure to back them up and move them to another hosting provider before leaving.

You can join as a starter member using a different email address but I advise against doing this as I think it might be against Wealthy Affiliate's rules but you could ask Kyle to confirm.

I recommend upgrading when you are ready and have the money but don't give up and cancel after one month. Starting an online business is a commitment and an investment. You need to be in it for the long haul if you decide it's something you want to do.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions. All the best to your success.

Think that the two answers below cover eveything.

Hi Michael,

Phil gave you a good response. Once a paid member quits, if they wait a while I believe they can rejoin as a free starter member again using a different email address. I suggest you ask Kyle to confirm.

However, a Premium Plus member can downgrade to the Premium level.

If you are trying to qualify for the Vegas trip by recruiting 300 paid members in a calendar year, if any paid member quits, they still qualify towards your 300.

Cheers.

You can never go back to being a starter but you can always cancel your membership. Just be aware that you will need to transfer your website to another host if you have built one.

You are very well covered here, with some excellent advice and guidance. If you have any further questions, please let the community know!

Excellent.. very good question.. Answers were given by Kyle and others , I'm a free starter, not premium or premium plus but I was ranked because i attended 10x lessons , active and participate in activities ..yes was ranked

Hi Michael,

The clearest way to see if a member has upgraded is via your WA Affiliate dashboard. You can access that by clicking the $ icon at the top right. Then click Referrals. Here you will see who has upgraded to Premium or Premium Plus. New paid members if not active could still be unranked.

Another way is to look at their profile image, If they have upgraded to Premium, you will see the blue diamond symbol attached. Premium Plus members have a gold crown with a black background attached.

Did you know that Wealthy Affiliate allows you to create automatic personalized messages you can send to your referrals? Until they upgrade, you can only choose to have these messages sent to their Profile Page. Once they upgrade, you can then send them PMs.

The system allows you to send messages at any time interval after the referral either action or doesn't. You can get training on how to do this in the Bootcamp training

I hope this helps.

Edwin

If you are not a member here, then you are not a member...so you wouldn't have a profile, a name, or ranking. If you are unranked, it means you haven't been active just yet, and as you start to become active you will see your rankings get better.

Just keep checking from time to time if you're a member if you not you not be Ranked

Oops went to wrong person michaelw

Dear Kyle: You did not answer my question. Thank you for the answers you gave. But, I was asking; if a Member is unranked? Does that mean that that Member has not signed up for the free plan yet?

I have a ton of recruits who are unranked. And I would like to know if they are signed up for the free plan or not?

So, you did not exactly answer my question. No Offense meant.

Thank you:
Michaelw777

Dear Kyle; last time I was sort of hungry when I looked at your answer. But, still; I have more than a Ton of Members I have recruited who are not ranked.

I want to know what I should say to them? So, I am just asking you to please give me more information. I do understand that if they are not active here; they are not ranked. But, I am asking for more info so I know what to say to them.

Thank you:
Michaelw777

Hello Michael

As Kyle said unranked means the member is not active. Free starter members and premium members can both be unranked if they are not active.

If you don't sign up to Wealthy Affiliate in any way you will not have a profile or be a member. There is no other way of explaining this.

Simply put if you can see someone's profile they are a member on WA. Unranked just means they are not active. The rankings will improve the more active the members are.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions. All the best to your success.

I was planning on thanking Site Support. But, I know they are Very Busy; and I don't want to use a ticket to them to thank them. So, I am just saying Thank you Very Much to S

I have always taken time to thank them for helping me out. Imagine the thousands of requests they receive everyday for help. I feel it's only appropriate to thank them in return for their help.

I always say a big "Thank You" to site support. They provide excellent service.

When they PM me that everything is corrected, I alwaus leave them a thank you!

Jeff

Hey Michael,

I'm certain that SiteSupport would be grateful when each of us say, "Thank You", when letting them know the issue(s) is/are now solved.

For me... that is a "must do"... as that is what I would want others to do unto me. ;-D

Must do indeed, Trish, do unto others as you want them to do unto you, even if you paid for the service. These guys at times go above their remit to help us, myself included.

Agreed. Site Support is always there to keep our businesses running behind the scenes. We don’t know how spoiled we are :)

Yes they are very helpful they always there when I need them !!

I use their expertise a lot and always send a thanks

Site Support is my unsung heroes! They are always very efficient in whatever website issues I bring them - and I always thank them for their support!

They deserved to be acknowledged every time !

Cheers,
Maria 🌹

I always thank Site Support, as they do a fantastic job. I'm sure they will appreciate your thanks if you choose to respond to the original ticket. Otherwise, they may not see your message!

That's very nice of you, Michael and I'm sure they appreciate it. You can also thank them by responding in the original ticket.

Thanks for letting me know; but they contacted me back and I Thanked them.

No time 😮

I am just going to say: I know where you are coming from. When I can; I will try to review the Training. But, I am just afraid; even if I review the Training. Which I will try to get to as soon as I can.

The Fault won't be with the Training; but I am just afraid that even after I do the Training; I might make the same mistake or mistakes again. So, I am just please asking for some Expert advice on how to both create a Domain name; and transfer my Current site to the new site?

I mean; I hope it is understood; last time I did the Training and made the mistake; the fault wasn't with the Training; the fault was that maybe that I didn't understand the Training fully; this was years ago when I first started and I was younger.

So, I am just asking for Expert advice on how to Create a new Domain name correctly and Transfer my Current Site to the new site? I am asking for Expert Advice on this?

The point I am making is that I can repeat the Training; but there is no point if I make the same mistake again even with the Training.

So, I am asking for Expert Advice on this? Please Help?

I am just going to say too: I asked Site Support about these issues before; I know they may be Very Busy. But, I am hoping to hear back from them before I have to quit being on the Computer for the night.

So, please PM me if you want? If any Experts can help?

I'd just like to make sure in advance I get it correctly this time.

And I am planning to just buy the site once I know the necessary steps.

So, I want to make sure I don't mess up again.

Thanks in Advance for any help that can be given.

Thanks:

STOP! You are predicting and forcing negative results before they happen.
It's alright to ask for help but the way you describe the situation sounds hopeless.
First things first. Change your attitude to I can't fail positivity. Don't plan to fail or sit around waiting for help. Ask for help but keep working on the problem. When help does arrive you may have solved the problem already or at least you will have new information to add.
WA is just one tool. Also try YouTube and other resources for help. You have years of learning ahead of you and this will be your new way of life for now on. Solving problems and kicking butt.
You can conquer this problem and move on to the next one.
You are a natural . You already wrote the equivalent of two blog post today 😆
From your wording I think you have the idea of what a Domain is all wrong. If you have purchased a Domain name already and now you want to point it to WA, it is very easy to do.

HTTP - stands for "Hypertext Transfer Protocol". HTTPS - stands for "Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure".

This is an automated process that has nothing to do with the site name. All sites look like this: https://the-site-name.domain-extension.

purchasing a domain name with https preceding it is causing the confusion you are having. I would highly suggest purchasing a new domain name for your site.

Try to shorten your domain name if possible. Do a little research.

I tried it and took out the extra https. Still didn't connect. Are you sure you have your name right? forwomenexpertadvicegettingintoshape.com

Well, that's the whole point, really, lol.

He deliberately included https in the domain name even though, obviously, it wasn't necessary!

I was just a newbie; and this was years ago; and did not know at the time. I did not do it on purpose. I am just asking for help now. Once more: It was not deliberate or on Purpose. At any rate: I have to quit being on the computer soon. If anyone can suggest how to fix it; please Private Message me. I am asking Site Support too.

Thank you:
Michaelw777

You mean that's part of his domain name and not just a typing error?

NM I see it now

If you want to keep that domain name, including the https, then it is working fine.

If you want to change it, you would have to buy another domain name, and transfer all your work over.

Your solution is to register the domain name forwomenexpertadvicegettingintoshape.com (although something shorter would be better) create a new website on the new domain name and then transfer the existing website to the new one. Site Support can help with that.

Michael,

Did you mean to have 2 https in your website URL?

I can see your website; it is up and running (see the screenshot below).

But when you purchased the domain, you gave it the name httpsforwomenexpertadvicegettingintoshape.com

You actually included https in the domain name.

So, that is what you need to type into Google.

Your site https://httpsforwomenexpertadvicegettingintoshape.com/ comes up fine but it's a really weird domain name. Why does it start with https?

When I enter this in Google: http://forwomenexpertadvicegettingintoshape.com I get this: http://forwomenexpertadvicegettingintoshape.com/ that is a link. My Site does not come up when I search for it in Google. Hope that explains? Please help?

That's because your site is not http://forwomenexpertadvicegettingintoshape.com/ . It's https://httpsforwomenexpertadvicegettingintoshape.com/. When you registered your domain name, you must have preceded it by https.

Your actual domain name is httpsforwomenexpertadvicegettingintoshape.com

Try entering that into Google and you'll find it comes up (automatically preceded by https://).

When I put this in Google: forwomenexpertadvicegettingintoshape.com
I get this: http://forwomenexpertadvicegettingintoshape.com/

I don't know if this is a problem now: But, if there are searches for my Site? I would like others to be able to find it.

If it is not a problem? Please Advise? But, I think it is.

Thank you:
Michaelw777

It's because forwomenexpertadvicegettingintoshape.com is NOT your domain name. Your domain name is httpsforwomenexpertadvicegettingintoshape.com. That's what you need to put into Google. Try it!

Can somebody please advise me how to fix this problem without losing all the material on my Site?

Both Diane and I have told you several times. Your site comes up fine. There's nothing wrong with it. You will not lose anything. Your problem is that your domain name is httpsforwomenexpertadvicegettingintoshape.com and if you try to find your site without including that https at the start, it's not gonna work.

I thought the link would work; they don't. If anyone really wants to help? Just please try copying and pasting them into the Google Search Bar and search. Thanks in Advance.

If you don't understand why you shouldn't have put https in front when registering your domain name, let me know and I'll explain further.
