Here in CT (until last year) we had a farm team for the Twins - the New Britain Rock Cats. It was fun to go to their games then see players when they reached the big leagues!
I hope you're having a good experience here at WA so far, and that you're moving ahead as you want to. All the best, Heather :)

Thanks for the comment. We had a farm team here in Alexandria MN called the Beetles. I think the owners have closed the team for the coming year, but it was fun having a team like that here in town.

Things are going good. I joined premium, and am moving along with my website. I know it will take some time, but I can sit here all day if I want and work at it. I will send you a message if I need your help. Thanks for all your help that you have given me already.

Awesome Russell, I know you are going to really love Premium and going forward and as you work through the training, you are going to make some wonderful progress.

Remember, success is the result of "action" and "hard work". Everything else you have here at WA to facilitate you along the way, and if you add those two items to the mix you are going to do very well! :)

I am starting Course 2, and they said that I have to purchase a domain name in order to continue on? I thought it said I could continue on until I decided I wanted to have a domain name. I just ran into some other financial problems, and can't afford to buy a domain name, or the $47 a month to pay premium each month. What are my options?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, you don't have to purchase a domain. Skip that step, you can use your .siterubix.com domain for now and you will always be able to transfer this to your own domain in the future. Completely fine to use your existing site.

How do I keep going with the lessons then. They won't let me go on unless I buy a domain?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Skip that lesson (just check off the task) and move forward within the lessons. Not a problem at all.

I need help. I have bought a domain name, thought I had it set up after many long hours. Went to transfer it over, and it didn't work right. None of the information pages show up, but my previous site is still there with the pages. What do I need to do?

Kyle Premium
What is your domain name? Let me know and I can have a look for you here.

My original website that still has all the information is minnesotatwins.com. The new one that I have thru name cheap is minnesotatwinsapparelinfo.com. Nothing shows up there.

I replied to you yesterday and haven't heard back. I can't do anything until I hear back from you and find out what is wrong. I have 2 sites out there instead of one. The one that I created is working and is namedminnesotatwins.com. The other one that I transferred from name cheap is minnesotatwinsapparelinfo.com. The headings are there but no information. Let me know what is going on.

Your domain:

http://minnesotatwinsapparelinfo.com/

Is definitely pointing to WA now. What you need to do now is build a website on this domain and it will be live immediately.

If you want to move another website over to this domain name that you have hosted here, then you will want to use the Move feature.

Yeah, we actually have a "Move" feature that you will see right within the SiteManager.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

You can move any domain to any domain hosted here at WA. For example, if you wanted to move your Siterubix website to a domain that you have purchased, then it is a very simple process.

The "Move" feature also handles for all proper redirects and SEO, it will transfer your site in its entirety and it is as simple as a few clicks. See attached screenshot for what I am referring to here.

PS. Sorry for my delayed response here, I have just been crazy busy with the Black Friday catch up here (literally swamped!). Thanks for your patience!

Just looking for some feedback on my website. I asked for some help on the comment site, but nobody has replied yet. If you get a chance, would you please look at it and see what you think of it. I'm thinking of changing my theme page, but not sure what others would look like. Please let me know what you think. Thanks for the help getting my domain set up.

I have set up the domain name and moved everything over. I just have two site listed on my site yet.

Hey there Russell and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I am Simon, an affiliate of WA and I am here to help you along the way.

A little about me - I run a successful Internet marketing agency from my home base in Mexico and my clients are mostly in the UK. I have a staff of 7 to support our clients and we’ve been in business for over 6 years.

I use Wealthy Affiliate to spread some of my knowledge and help people like yourself get off the ground. If you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do let me know, I’ve covered almost every part of Internet marketing and selling online.

In my view Wealthy Affiliate is not only a great place to start learning in how to create an online income, but the only resource you will need. However be warned – there’s a lot of information on this site. Take a deep breath Russell, this is where it gets interesting!

As a new member here, you should check out the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). This is a task based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets. Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labelled "Get Started Here". Here is your link to set up your 2 free Wordpress sites with full hosting -
