Transfer your domain from NameCheap to WA 2016

Last Update: December 23, 2015

This is how to transfer, move or point your domain from Name Cheap to Wealthy Affiliate. Name Cheap is constantly changing its dashboard so we need new tutorials to keep pace. The process is very simple and can be done in 3 minute or less. l have used screen shots, captions and arrows to make the tutorial easy to follow. This is my first blog at WA .... YEPEE!

Lets get rolling,

Is it 'Login to', 'Log in to' or 'Log into' ...... hahaha. Anyway, you get the point.





You can copy and paste Wealthy Affiliate DNS addresses below to avoid errors;

ns1.mywahosting.com

ns2.mywahosting.com

OMG - Your flow chart is awesome!!! Thank you so very much, you got me out of a real 'pickle'. I just love it when learning is easy. Honestly, I'm smiling now.
Just a quick check with you. Now there are both Domains listed, but the SiteRubix one will disappear on its own -yes?
Cheers, Jennifer

Thank you JMcLoughlin. l am glad you were not 'pickled' and you managed to transfer your domain without any glitches. l am not sure if there is a new system that makes the SiteRubix disappear with out you deleting it (not recommended). What l know is, the SiteRubix url will be redirected to your new website. You may need to carry out further research before manually removing it. Cheers.

Hi Dunbar, thanks for the follow. They say it takes 48 hrs. The confirmation message is very easy to miss. Complete the WA website set up and periodically check if the process has been complete by clicking the refresh icon on the website thumbnail. Name Cheap can update you on the progress using the chat option. Good luck.

Sorry for the delayed response. If you haven't fixed the problem, check attached screen shot on way to go. You need to select 'Domains' then scroll right down to 'Add Domain'.

I had figured this out on my own but I see a TON of people asking about it all the time in the activity dashboard. Thank you for this blog, It'll be great! Instead of trying to explain it when helping out, I'll just link them to this. It is an incredibly well done training tutorial, laid out very nicely!

Thanks again,
Zach

Thanks Zach for your encouraging words. The challenge is the ever changing dashboard at Name Cheap. It is really really simple. It is indeed a hot topic. It is my first blog ever here at WA and l am happy if you like the lay out. It is indeed easy to share a link than explain the process a thousand times.

I've already shared it with one person that was talking about the site not looking anything like Kyle's video had shown it. It would be ridiculous to expect a new video every time a website tweaked something, but that is where these wonderful walkthroughs come into play!

Great work on your first blog post!
Zach
