I already own some websites but the unlimited domains that come with premium accounts here are tempting me to upgrade. But do I get to keep those domains if I eventually decide to leave WA? I don't mind adding them to my account at my existing web host, but I love the idea of using the templates here. I just want to be sure I own the sites.

WA offers unlimited hosting as part of Premium Membership, not unlimited domains, as WA isn't a domain name registrar. You can create unlimited siterubix subdomains as a Premium Member. However, you don't "own" a domain such as http://yoursitename.siterubix.com as WA is the owner of the core domain http://siterubix.com so you can't transfer these subdomains away if you decide to leave. You can host unlimited websites using your own domains registered with a third party such as Namecheap. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/website-development-programming/how-to-choose-a-proper-domain-name You can also transfer a siterubix subdomain to an own domain with one click https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/carson/blog/siterubix-website-to-a-domain-you-own-in-one-click Hope this helps! :) Rich.

Ah, so I buy the domains and can host them here for as long as I stay. Makes sense. I can add to my own host pretty easily, but I see a lot of value in the templates here. Hopefully I can use those with my own host (haven't gotten quite that far yet).

Yup, if you decide to leave WA you have 30 days after the expiry of your Premium Membership to move your websites to a new host before they're deleted. You can install WordPress on most third-party hosting services. :) Rich.

I believe they're having domain names purchased through NameCheap, and yes you'll be the owner of those domain names just as you have in the past. You would just point them to your WA hosting servers is all. As far as your site content, you'll have the ability to move that if necessary too, so shouldn't be anything to worry about :)

Just to clarify, I'm referring to actual domains that you would purchase. If you make use of the 2 free siterubix account names, those are subdomains, which you can't just redirect so they're a different story. Hope this help :)
