I guess so, unless you already are Premium, in which case you just transfer.

Question. If I have a domain at Godaddy and they are asking me where to forward my domain to, What address do I use? My siterubix?

You only need to point it to WA DNS.

Just follow this and you should be fine...

So sight would go down for 10 days if I transfer? I can't have site down for that long.

If you have content you will want to migrate your site. It will not be down for longer than perhaps 2 hours.

First, you will backup your site to a file (I use All in One WP migration plugin for this) Then you will change the nameservers on your hosting to point to WA servers.

They will propagate in under 2 hours. ( It tells you 48 hours but will happen much faster) Once the nameservers have propagated to WA, you will install the site and add the migration plugin. Then you restore your backup to the site.

Thanks for answering. I'm still too afraid to do it. Every time I mess with something, I break something.
