A domain is something that you not only own (just like real estate), it appreciates in value and it will lead to much better rankings in Google. It is also an opportunity to brand yourself and create an authority within a niche.

SiteRubix.com sites are a wonderful starting point and testing ground for your business, but at some point you are going to want to consider moving to a domain of your own. As a PREMIUM member here at WA, you can host 25 of your own domains as well as free 25 websites on the siterubix.com domain (total of 50 websites)!


In this training I am going to be walking you through the process of transferring an existing website you have created (.siterubix.com) over to your own domain name.

Before you move through this training, you should first own your own domain name. You can buy domains and register them directly through the SiteDomains platform here at WA. Here are instructions on how to do this.

How to Buy a Domain Name With SiteDomains

There is no additional set-up after buying a domain name, upon purchasing you will be able to transfer your new website over to your own domain name using the Move feature.

The "Move" feature takes care of everything, including:

  • Transferring all of the website files/themes
  • Transferring all of your plugins
  • Transferring the user accounts
  • Redirecting all of your old website pages to your new pages automatically
  • Making sure the transfer is SEO friendly
If you have any questions about any of the content within this training, please do let me know and I will give you a hand.


PS. If you have not purchased your domain name yet, you can do so here.

If I still have things I want to edit on my website, should I do this before I move my domain to .com or can I work on my website (e.g.edit some content) after the move? I mean, do all the modifications still have to be done on SiteRubix after the domain move?

I would do it after the move. Then you are really motivated to give your best on your own domain. But actually, it doesn't matter.

I did it! I had to point my nameservers from Godaddy - and the tutorials here on WA did not answer all my questions - but I did figure it out and write a blog on my site about it. I saw something on WA about premium members not being able to write tutorials until they have been premium for 3 months and I wanted to record how I did this transfer - to help other people - and remind myself if I forget by the time I have to do it again! http://freetrainingworkfromhome.com/host-a-domain-you-already-own-on-wealthy-affiliate

That was an easy to follow video, and I created my WA domain easily. In following the instructions on the video I checked the Site Domains section and I noticed that the one year registration I purchased "Renews Feb 02,2019". So, since today is March 04, 2018, I am a bit confused. It seems like I lost a month on the deal.

hello everyone i just transferred my siterubix over to my new domain but i have a quick question if someone wouldn't mind helping i would greatly appreciate it. so after going through the process of moving to your own domain the page that comes up once your move is complete mine doesn't look the same as in Kyle's video for example in the video the page reads
-Access Details
-Website admin used
-installed website functionality and options
but mine isnt this way mine says
-Admin details
-Domain details
-site+
>site speed (with an option on or off) mine is off
>siteSSL(HTTPs) says unavailable
>site protect (spam blocker) With option on or off mine is on
-page speed insight (with a chart of my pages)
Page title publish date desktop mobile scanned
V V
page title date
page title date
.........and so on
why does mine appear different did i do something wrong? Or is this how it should look? Also is the siteSSL supposed to be unavailable?

In the bottom right hand corner there is a score out of three, click on it then turn on all of the boxes

there is nothing in the bottom right hand corner and when i try to click unavailable in hopes it would allow me to change it it comes up with a message that says (i copy and paste the message it shows me)
SiteSSL is not available for websites on free SiteRubix.com subdomains. If you wish to install SSL on your website you can move your SiteRubix.com site over to a domain you own, then enable SSL.

Hi. Sorry it is called Site Plus. When you are in Site Manager on your site it is in the bottom right hand corner of your given site.. In Site Manager is it showing your now moved site in its own box

So I have followed the steps and have waited over an hour but my site still has not moved.... When I go to click move again it says "yourealhomeneeds.siterubix.com has already been scheduled to be moved to yourealhomeneeds.com We are moving your website over to a new domain right now and it will only take a few moments. If you wish to browse away while we complete the process you can feel free to do so as we will email you when the transfer is complete!"... any ideas??

Well it sounds like you may want to submit a support ticket if its been that long. I don't think mine took more than about 10 minutes or so.
All the Best
