Transferring in a website from another Host
I think I just transferred a website in from another Host. I know I've bought domains from Go Daddy and had them pointed to WA. That was complicated but following directions provided it was doable.
Transferring this from another host was unbelievably difficult. I filled in the domain name and clicked the button at the "transfer domains" in Site Rubix > Then I find out I need a special tricky code from the host I'm transferring from. Like WA they are resellers for a company called Enom. So they send me info for a site I need to go to to request a code to release my domain to WA. I enter that in the space in Site Rubix.
Happy me, I think now I just wait a few days and my site will be live in Site Rubix.............
Not so quick ! The previous host forwards me an email from Enom. There is a link I need to click for the transfer to go through. Only the email they sent me has no such link. I contact their tech dept at least 6 times and they just send the same useless email that really doesn't make any sense. Finally they tell me I need to call Enom, well enom was sort of helpful but said I needed to deal with old host. Of course they sent me the same useless email.
Finally I found and clicked the resend email in Site Rubix again. I hadn't recieved the email the 1st 3 times I clicked it, so I didn't have much hope. This time I got 2 copies of the email and............. It was the same one the first host had been sending me but it had the links. With renewed hope I clicked the link,,,,,,,,,,,, got an error message... GRRRR
Not being one to give up I emailed Domains@wealthyaffiliate.com 2 times.
Too impatient to wait I went back to Site Rubix, resent the email again finally I went to the approve terms and conditions page did so and approved the transfer.
I think this was the brass ring and now I just wait patiently for my domain to show up in Site Rubix. I really hope all steps in transfer now complete. Not positive, but I will let you know if more steps are added.
Feel free to reach out to me if you are on this mission and need help. I was only transferring the domain name and let the content go. Hope I never have to try that too.
