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 10 websites. As a Premium Plus+ member, you can host up to 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.
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.
