Updates:

1) You'll get an email from Wealthy Affiliate asking you to click a link, and agree to allow WA to be your new registrar. The email and form are pictured below:

2) Total transfer time took less than a day.

3) In the video I did not include the ";" symbol as part of the transfer code. This was a mistake. Symbols and punctuation are part of the code and need to be included!

4) From a comment here, it sounds like if you try to transfer TOO close to the renewal date that your request to transfer can be denied. Make sure to give yourself enough time before the renewal date!

Hey Nathaniell, are there any benefits from doing this?

I think the main advantage is to have all your domains in WA for easy tracking and it is just more efficient to have everything in one place. I have a few domains with GoDaddy, but I accomplish this by pointing my domains to WA by changing the DNS to ns1.wahosting.com and ns2.wahosting.com. Kyle has a training blog on this

Does the pricing for domain renewal remain the same as it was in Namecheap or is there an increase in WA?

WA. Has their own pricing and after b7ying from different plac3s over the years, i consider it 5o be the best because so much is included. Cheaper isn't always inexpensive.

Thanks Nate,
I am going to get a new domain (new URL) at WA and transfer current Namecheap website to that new WA domain. What is the easiest path to do this?

Thanks

Thank you Nathaniell. My Namecheap domain is up for renewal. Decided to transfer the domain registrar to WA was directed to your video which is very self explanatory. Will implement asap as i have a month for the expiry.

Hi Nathaniell, got notice from Namecheap today that my renewal was up next month, so was lucky to see this training, did as you said, took less than a minute, and are now waiting for the message that all went well. So easy, thank you very much for sharing

Hi Nathaniell, I did this transfer 2 months ago with a domain name, and I stumbled on some things I didn't see, here are my findings of the troubles I encountered, others could benefit from it, and so are you, when you get unexpected questions

I tried to make the switch. My renewal date was three days away and Namecheap denied my request. I'm not sure why. I went ahead and renewed through Namecheap. I'll try again another time.

I'll add this info to the tutorial.

My site is good in Name Cheap till May 2017. Should I go ahead and transfer it here anyway? Wasn't clear on that. Thanks for the training, Nathaniell. I thought I'd already taken care of this, but guess not. :)
