Let's Move Your SiteRubix Website To Your Own Domain In WA Hosting

#############################################################

Before we do that, let's Backup Your SiteRubix Website just to be SAFE!

#############################################################

1/ Login to your SiteRubix Website that you want to move, and in the left menu, scroll down to Tools, then click on Tools, and then click on Export.

2/ Click on All Content, then click the blue Download Export Files button.

3/ Once you are sure you have backed up your SiteRubix Website, then click on the light blue Move Icon to the left of Details.

4/ Make sure that this is the correct SiteRubix Website you want to move and choose either To A New Domain, or To An Existing Domain (Already Hosted Here At WA).

Since we've just pointed our domain to WA Hosting, it is now hosted at WA, so we'll choose the second option.

5/ Click on the To An Existing Domain button.

6/ Click on the down arrow to the right of the heading --Select A Domain -- and then click on the domain you want to move the website to.

A Confirmation Dialogue Box will appear warning you that it DELETE all files and content so you need to have Backed Up all that you want to keep as a safeguard measure.

7/ If you are happy that you've Backed Up your content and files, then click on the Continue With Move button, otherwise click on the Do Not Move! button and re-evaluate your process.

Once you've clicked on the Continue With Move button, a black Hold Tight! Moving Your Website... square appears.

Upon completion of moving your website, which only takes a few seconds, you will receive a green message that you have successfully moved your website to your domain.

Congratulations! You've done it!

Now you can access the website on the new domain and have fun!

Thank you very much for this. I had to get a .ca for one site and was panicking if WA would host it or not. I just changed the name servers so I am guessing I have to wait a little before it is official so I can move it to WA and then put my site on it.

Hi I have tried to move my website from siterubix to my own domain with WA but it still says my website is in the process of being moved, though I did this over an hour ago. Does it normally take this long or has something gone wrong? I have an option to "Install Website" on my own domain should I click this? Thanks.

It does take away to transfer everything from one site to another. The length of time varies. I believe, unless there is another function for it, that "install website" means to set it up in wordpress when it is a complete new site.

Ok thanks, so should I just wait until this is completed? Can I update my siterubix website in the meantime or will the changes be lost?
Reply

That I don't know. I think the changes would certainly be saved on the siterubix.com site, but they might not transfer to the other site.

JimmySteene Premium
Yes you can. And all changes will move with your site.

I just moved my free website to my own domain and still have two websites. When I try to log in to either one a Wordpress login page appears that I haven't seen before.

It's not doing it now, just logged into my new domain website. What do I do with the .siterubix site, delete it?

Don't delete the siterubix domain. It will redirect people to your new site. I am not sure how long it does this.

I just wonder where you get your ideas from Edu, creating the training is probably the easy bit........having the ideas to decide what the subject of your training is going to be is something else!!

Well done, Mark

It takes a lot of research to find the right training subject, I'm getting there. But you are right it's a juggle to see which one's will work. Thank you for your much needed support! :-)
