Hello Eric,

Thanks for the clarification. How does it work when I own/ purchase a domain on my own and want to move my siterubix website to that domain without being a premium WA member?
Please advise.

John

I'm not sure if you can access that as a free member. I believe as a free member you have access to 2 free siterubix sites. To have a site on a domain you own, whether you buy it here or have one already bought elsewhere, I believe you'd have to be a premium member :)

Can you confirm that for me?
What if I purchase a website though WA and decide not to become a premium member. Does that work?

As a free member you only have access to the 2 free siterubix sites. You have to be premium to purchase and register one here at WA, and that's why I'm thinking you have to be premium to move a site over onto a domain you own.

Now, you can go premium and purchase one and then if you decide to leave later you'll have the opportunity to move it off from WA to wherever you want. That's an option as well.

As advised some hours ago, I watched your video in order to answer my question. So thank you! It really looks easy now to move from a free domain to another. Clear and simple!

I won't worry anymore about that ;)

I followed the training but I don't know why it takes time to redirect the website from a siterubix free website to a domain.

Hey Valentin. You don't understand why it takes time to redirect an entire website from one area of the internet to another? Well, internet addresses are real estate. And depending on how complex a website is, to move it in its entirety from one piece of real estate to a completely different one while also setting up redirects on the old domain that point to the new one takes time. It's usually done very quickly . And all with just one click.

It's a pretty amazing feature actually.

I guess I have to wait at least 24 hours to see my website up again! Thanks for the help!

When I moved mine it took all of 5 minutes. Don't worry about it! 1 day definitely won't break you, especially on a new site :) Enjoy the break and prepare your next post!

When you're looking up a domain to register are you clicking on the "add to cart"? Once you add it to your cart, you then just click on your cart to finish the purchase. If you're adding it to your cart and for whatever reason it's not showing up, try restarting your computer. Whenever basic functions aren't working right, it's usually just a matter of resetting your computer and things begin to work again.
