Do not follow this if you have already started a website on the GoDaddy Servers. You will need to download your content first so it can be uploaded after the transfer.

This is for people who have just bought a domain with nothing on it and use GoDaddy to buy domains. Without any of the up-sells from GoDaddy if you are a premium member at WA you will get all your hosting for free. This means a piece of real estate on the internet only costs you about $13.

I bought my domain name from godaddy years ago and tried setting up, hosting it and launching it but quit after a while. I remember this name servers thing and left everything behind.

To make the long story short, I left everything in an incomplete unfinished non functioning website in godaddy but NOW I transferred my domain name to WA, paid for it and READY to start from scratch/zero.

What now? Help.

Start the WA Affiliate Bootcamp training. It will take you through setting up your website here at WA while teaching you how to build out your website.

There is training here on DNS and transferring the name and attaching it to the your siterubrix site. Did you go through that instruction video? Go to the top of the WA homepage and in the middle is the slot where you can type in a topic and a whole bunch of training pages will be listed. You will find what you need by doing that. And you need to find one that fits the company you bought the name from, i.e. GoDaddy or NameCheap. Good luck

Thank you for your answer. I saw the video many times. i made many question but i can't receive answer. On the godaddy i have this:
Nameservers:
http://NS1.MYWAHOSTING.COM
http://NS2.MYWAHOSTING.COM
Updated 1/14/2015
Manage

On the godaddy seems everything is good, but after 24 hours when i go to Rubix and want to build website, it said: Please correct the errors......


Thank you,
Mayk

Since you own a domain name and since you are premium member, you can bypass the siterubrix and build your own domain site. When you are in the site manager and click to build a site, you have the option at step 1 to build "on a domain / own" Click that and follow the prompts to enter your domain name. It should register and you can build a new site with your domain name.

Thank you, i try to to this 24 hours already. This is my problem why i asking for help. When i put my domain name in the Rubix following the steps, finally when i click Build my websites.
The message come out: Please, correct the errors.........
and again i follow this instructions:

Have you already purchased this domain name?
YES - If you already own http://bestptcsites.com, your DNS settings are not quite setup yet. You must point that domain at Wealthy Affiliate nameservers. To do this, you will update your DNS by following these instructions.

I made this changes yesterday and i tried several times but no succes.

Thank you for your answer.

Best,
Mayk

Contact the domain name company. It might still be processing but you can encourage them to push it thru

Make sure you get all the content downloaded and ready to transfer. magistudios would be a good person to pm and he has also done a WAbinar on selling domains that may help you.

Thanks for watching. I have heard of a couple people wanting to know about this and also that some were using namecheap because this was difficult. It is actually really easy after the first time.

Hi Ryan, nice clear video to follow along with when I expanded it. Thanks for taking the time to share. Debut is that the name of a programme, whereby you can record what you are doing on your computer? Freebie or paid? Many thanks for your help.

debut was free kinda... you can use certain features but not the whole program and only if it is for non commercial use. Thanks for watching it and commenting.
