Hey Kyle. I did all of this 2 days ago, and my site is still down. The only difference I see is when I submit my DNS changes, it puts ns2 in primary, and ns1 in secondary. But WebHostingHub told me that shouldn't matter. Any ideas why my site would still not be showing up? Thanks in advance

Where did you purchase your domain from Kevin? Was it the WebHostingHub you mentioned? I think it is important to have them in the right order. It is at Godaddy.

Hey MsMerry, thanks for your reply! Yes, it was WebHostingHub where I purchased it. I have tried changing it several times, and each time I do and click 'submit', it reverts back to the way it is set now. So, I chatted with them and they said it wouldn't matter. I can ask them to try and make it stick the correct way so to speak.

Hey everyone. I was hoping to receive a little help. I have received emails stating that my DNS has not been set up however I thought I did set this up.

From Domain.com, I have changed the nameservers to:
nameserver 1: ns1.mywahosting.com
nameserver 2: ns2.mywahosting.com

I'm not sure what else is supposed to be done. I appreciate any advice I can get.

Can somebody enplane what 1&1.com is for? I purchased my site from Namecheep.com .When I tried to sign on the 1&1, they did not recognize me, because i had never used them I created a sign on and went through the steps, like Kyle's message said and then they wanted to charge me a fee. So what is 1&1?

I had already gone to Namechiep and reassigned my server to ns1 & ns2.mywahosting.com. but i keep getting a message from Kyle saying i do not have a DNS set up. So what all do i need to do?
Reply
Labman Premium
Both namecheap and 1&1 are registrars and web hosts. WA is also a registrar and web host. Your Premium membership covers hosting so once you have purchased your URL and reassigned the DNS, you will be on WA hosting and have no need for hosting on 1&1.

Drawshot Premium
Hi,

It can sometimes take hours, even a day or two at times for domain names to resolve.

If you bought your name at Namecheap, and have it hosted here at WA, then 1&1 should not be part of anything you're doing here.

LWayne Premium
Thanks for you answer and response!
Reply
nathaniell Premium
1&1 and namecheap offer the same service. If you bought from namecheap, you don't need 1&1.

Sounds like you changed the DNS already correctly, so now you just have to wait a bit so all the "behind the scenes" stuff and hook up and start working. Might take a day or two. Check back tomorrow!

I transfrred my site to WA. The transfer went ok but I got an email from WA today that my "If you wish to use the hosting at Wealthy Affiliate for alrvinspection.com, then all you need to do is point the DNS to WA hosting servers by editing the DNS/NameServer options on your domain registrar (where you purchased the domain)." I found and entered the DNS numbers in Wordprerss which is where I started with my website. When i select "save custom name servers" I get an error message "unable to update name servers". I did it twice, same results. Thoughts?

Hi Al!

If you transferred your website and it is now hosted at WA, then you need to go to the "Site Rubix" link on the upper left of your WA account screen and click on "site domains." Next to alrvinspection.com on the right side, you should see settings. Click on name servers and be sure those are set to ns1.mywahosting.com for the primary server and ns2.mywahosting.com for the secondary nameserver. I think that is what you need for this to work. I could be wrong. If so, contact tech support and they will check for you.

where is your domain hosted then Kray63? Maybe someone can help you. I am with GoDaddy so not sure I can help.

I got a rely to add my website pkm1963.com to this company website. I went in a paid $13.36 to add it from Wordpress.com which my first website was designed and setup through Wordpress. I went to upload the information and I was continuing to get the information to upgrade or lose my website as well as the other information.
What I was trying to do was make sure it was added without getting another message. Plus I have that one already established to add this one on. So my question would be do I need to do anything else or am I good?

How do you update DNS settings on WA? I have watched the tutorial, but it's about setting up domain DNS, which doesn't help me at all. Info: I bought my domain from Namecheap and successfully transferred to WA, so I guess I should update my DNS setting here--I have no records in my Namecheap account since I transferred the domain to WA.
Reply
pamdemonium Premium
Hi Prinz, if your domains have been transferred to WA, i.e., you've re-registered them via SiteDomains, and if your website is being hosted here on WA SiteRubix, then the DNS will be sorted out at WA's backend, you don't have to do anything. This tutorial is for people who've registered their domains outside of WA.
Reply
Prinz Premium
Thanks Pamdemonium. I understand that the DNS had been sorted out already. Actually, I'm trying to set up a Mandrill API key via MailChimp and I'm required to set up sending domains. To start sending through Mandrill, I need to verify ownership of my sending domain and update my DNS records. Unfortunately, site support can't help and I'm trying to figure out how this can be done.

Ahh, I see... I do use Mailchimp (not for my own personal sites), but am not familiar with Mandrill.

NeBro and Kyle...

I took the information you gave me below:

To Set up Your Domain Name Servers at GoDaddy, do the following:
1. Log in to your Account Manager.
2. Next to Domains, click Launch.
3. Select the domain name(s) you want to modify.
4. From the Nameservers menu, select Set Nameservers.
5. Under Setup type, select Custom.
6. Select Add Nameservers.
7. Enter the two WA Hosting nameservers

Primary: NS1.MYWAHOSTING.COM
Secondary: NS2.MYWAHOSTING.COM
8. Click Save.

BUT..THIS happened:

1. After logging to Account Manager
2. I find “Domains” then “Rate Product” and MANAGE
3. Rate Product” is “required”
4. Next I clicked MANAGE
5. Then the screen had two boxes – one had my domain with “is using external nameservers”
6. Next I clicked the “settings” star in the upper right hand corner of this box
7. It showed “Domain settings” and “Manage DNS”
8. I then clicked Manage DNS – this already had the primary and secondary nameservers for WA there – sand at the bottom there were two more boxes – “Advanced Features” and “Forwarding”, which indicated that neither the “Domain” nor the ”Subdomain” were setup for “Forwarding and had “ADD” next to each one.

So I am assuming (dangerous, I know) that my domain is already pointed at WA.
Is that correct? Or am I doing something totally off the wall???

Need some guidance here...sorry for being so inept...still

Press On!.

My GoDaddy navigation is different than above for some reason so I'm sharing.
After logging in to my acct, I went to my name in the u.r. corner and selected ACCOUNT SETTINGS in the pop-up menu.
Next, I clicked on MY PRODUCTS on the u.l. Portion of the page.
Then, to the right of DOMAINS I selected MANAGE.
Next. I selected the "symbol for settings", (what looks like a cog) that is in the same box as my domain I wish to manage. U.r. corner. Selected MANAGE DNS, and from there I went down to NAMESERVERS, selected CHANGE, and changed from Default to CUSTOM. Then the rest is as listed above.
After all this I navigated a couple different ways to do this same NAMESERVER change, and noticed that there are many ways to achieve said goal, but verbiage is a little different in my account.
I hope this helps anyone with relevant problems.

OK Guys - this is where I get confused. I have done what is requested above -
1 Log in to your Account Manager - I did that - clicking the words Account manager as in the instructions
2. I see the word DOMAINS - but NO 'Launch' - rather just MANAGE

So I'm LOST - I'm not sure what to 'click'? if the word LAUNCH is not there.

Am I confused? - I am trying to do what is told me above.

Maybe try it yourself and see if you replicate my problem - and tell me what I'm doing wrong - don't worry - it is ALWAYS like this with me a technology - NOTHING EVER goes smoothly - I'm not sure what it is about me and tech - but I"M DETERMINED to get this right - I HAVE to get it right as I am going to be training others in how to build their website with WA.

This is the instructions I have for my google domain, however, it suggests 4 and to hit the + button to add more, but there is no + button.
Name servers

To view the name servers for your domain, do the following:

Click My domains in the navbar and click the domain name.
Click the DNS tab .
Scroll down to Name servers section to see a list of the name servers for your domain.
To switch to custom name servers, do the following:

You must use at least two name servers. Google recommends that you use at least four. Check with your DNS provider for the number and names of name servers available to you.

Under Name servers select Use custom name servers.
Enter a custom name server in the Name server field.
Click the + button to add another.
Click Save to save your name server.
Set up new resource records with your DNS provider. (The Google Domains resource records only work with the Google Domains name servers.)

For people who have domains at Domain.com and have trouble.
Here are the Steps:

1. Log in to your Domain.com Control Panel.
2. Go to Domain Central.
3. Select the domain (example: xyz.com) you want to edit.
4. Click "Nameservers".
5. Use the interface provided to modify your nameservers:
Select "Use different name servers " to use another company's nameservers. This option causes your domain to work with another company (Like Wealthy Affiliate).
8. Paste for Nameserver 1: ns1.mywahosting.com And for Nameserver 2: ns2.mywahosting.com.
7. Click "Save" and wait for less than 24 hours for your changes.

So my question is:

How should those be set?

settings/nameservers/click on manage and then you need to make it a custom change and put this in NS1.MYWAHOSTING.COM

I did that MsMerry, but there are selections below that area, and I'm asking about those.

you don't need to worry about those. Once you have made the switch you should be good to go. I don't remember mine being locked for any time at all. I didn't transfer just pointed my domain to WA

How do I point my word press domain to wa hosting?

I don't have Go Daddy, Name Cheep, 1 and 1, I have my own website hosted with Word Press. My Word Press Looks different. than the one used on SiteRubix, even the guided videos don't look the same.

For weeks I have been trying to do this, with no success. The reason why I have not completed this stage in my training as I can't seem to get this stage done.

I now have a message on my WA page reminding me of my failure. DNS ISSUES!!!!!!!!!

YES I KNOW :)

I have been on this problem now for hours and days, my wife even said to me you have been working hard on this. I have not resolved this issue.

Did Live chat!

I'm given lots of advice but non of it matches up to my site.

Go to options area of domain, where you bought it from.
Make sure the name servers are changes to

http://ns1mywahosting.com
http://ns2mywahosting.com

I think this is wonderful news, concrete steps forward to implement the needed change.

Try all this and I got greyed out buttons

CNAM
A
NS

By this time I'm on my smart phone, this may be a issue now also using a different system, as I'm traveling to a family gathering, then trying to do this now on my iPad, not recommended with older generation device :) LOL

I eventually get some result by this time have no idea if I have accomplished the task I need to accomplish.

Result CNAM Alias of http://ns1mywahosting.com

I feel like it is easy for those who are in the know, but I'm not in the Know,

I have been feeling like canceling WA, but I do like the whole ethos of WA and the idea of community of like minded people and support.

But is there actually technical support a person I can actually telephone an actual person who can walk me through this issue.

I love my website that I have built and want to host it at WA, whatever the means, and not lose it, having implemented the training given through WA which is excellent.

Most question I ask I have had an answer for and implemented into my website.

But this one, bot getting a lot of JOY :(

Sorry if this has been a little bit of as complaint, it is my last effort to try and get this resolved.

Thanks Anam Carra

real name Mark :)

Here’s how you can change your Wordpress DNS to WA.

This was the solution, THANK YOU! Juneyo.

Here’s how you can change your Wordpress DNS to WA.
https://en.support.wordpress.com/change-name-servers/

Make sure you put the right WA DNS.

Primary: http://ns1.mywahosting.com
Secondary: http://ns2.mywahosting.com

In the WordPress Support page provided to me by Juneyo, there is a link that takes you to Domain of WP, have to sign into WP e-mail and username, takes you to implement the needed changes. I printed off the document and went through it step by step.

Now that I have done this, have to wait if my DNS message will leave in the next few hours and days RESOLVED!

Thanks

P.S. There is Tech support, probably would not have gone through so much struggle if found and used this earlier.

I forgot one thing. Make sure you backup your website in case things go wrong. I’m not trying to scare you, just want you to take precaution. Contact site support and ask them to help you move your website content here.

I've updated my domain (that I purchased at GoDaddy a few years ago) with the WA Hosting Nameservers. Now, how do I connect it to the siterubix site that I created for this particular domain? When I click on 'Move' (in the domain manager), the option to select a domain I own outside of WA is not appearing. Not sure how to move forward with connecting my siterubix site with my domain that's now pointing to WA Hosting. Can someone advise me please - thanks :-)

Here’s how.

1- Go to SiteRubix – Site Builder. You have to create a new website first with the new domain name. Only then you’ll be able to move it. Select On a Domain I Own and type in your new domain name in the Add Your Domain Name box. A green tick will appear as you finished typing. Then, just fill in everything. The process is the same like building the Siterubix.

2 – After you click on I’m Ready, Build My Site Now, go to SiteRubix – Site Manager. Locate the Siterubix site you want to move and click on the Move button on the right. Choose To an Existing Domain and select the new domain name from the Choose existing dropdown. Then, click I’m Ready, Move My Site. Everything will be overwritten and all your contents will be moved to the new domain.

did you type your current domain in the search bar you have to set it up as a new domain then when you add it the option should appear?

I have already done this with GoDaddy at least 3 times now and it's still not working. I called their tech support and they told me that because my domain name was new, it has to be over 60 days old before they can change it. Is that right? Nothing seems to be working.

You don't need to transfer the name from godaddy, that will take 60 days and you will also have to register for another year to WA in order to move it so, you simply need to point the DNS to the WA nameservers

I had no problem doing mine. Are you sure you are in the right place and putting this info in correctly? One little thing missing is all it takes. Primary: ns1.mywahosting.com
Secondary: ns2.mywahosting.com I know you have to change it to custom before it will work so make sure you clicked on that little button. Hope this helps a little.

I'm not sure I'm doing is right. Can you tell me where specifically I need to go on GoDaddy to put in the information?

To Set up Your Domain Name Servers at GoDaddy, do the following:
1.Log in to your Account Manager.
2.Next to Domains, click Manage.
3.Select the domain name(s) you want to modify.
4.From the Settings menu, select Nameservers (third option)
5.Click Manage
6. Under Setup type, select Custom.
7. Select Add Nameserver
8. Enter the two WA Hosting nameservers:
Primary: NS1.MYWAHOSTING.COM
Secondary: NS2.MYWAHOSTING.COM
9. Click Save

Note; Once your website is up and running with WA you need to go back into your GoDaddy Account and update your Domain Details under DNS Zone File > A (Host)

exactly as FHagstrom has said Carol.

I think they changed that for updating domain details. When I went in it says it cannot be done because my domain is not hosted at GoDaddy or something similar to that :) I think it is on auto for that now.

Hi, I just did mine and it worked.
1.Go to your domain manager or your GoDaddy account.
2. You should see some drop down menus. Among these dropdowns, you should see "domain". Click on it
3. It should show your domain name and a dropdown icon within the box. Click the drop-down arrow and got to DN settings.
4. Scroll down and you should see another drop-down requiring to either switch from default to custom, switch to custom and press ok.
5. Input these name servers:
ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com
6. Click save.

If you don’t buy your domain name from 1&1 then, there’s no need to create one. The 1&1 instruction is only for those who buy from that domain registrar.

The next thing to do is check whether the DNS has fully propagated. To do that, go to whois.net and type your website URL. Look at the Name Server. If it shows like the image below, that means everything is good to go. You can now start building your site.

Hi,
please help! I'm trying to transfer my site form godaddy. I see this instruction,

YES - If you already own indicolor.com, your DNS settings are not quite setup yet. You must point that domain at Wealthy Affiliate nameservers. To do this, you will update your DNS by following these instructions.
NO - If you don’t own indicolor.com, you can see if it is available available to register through our SiteDomains platform. For help with this, see these instructions.

To point the DNS settings, I'm asked to login to 1&1 account. I do not have a login, Do I have to purchase domain again to sign up here?
Reply
Juneyo Premium
I check indicolor.com via whois.net and it looks like your DNS has been successfully pointed to WA DNS. Are you trying to create a new site with it or move a siterubix site to it?

If you don’t buy your domain name from 1&1 then, there’s no need to create one. Where do you see the instruction that asked you to login to 1&1 account in order to point the DNS settings?

Did you just move your site from another hosting to WA? I check on whois.net, your DNS is already pointed at WA.

The first thing you need to do is you have to build a new website the domain. Only then you’ll be able to move your siterubix (if you have one & if that’s what you’re trying to do) to the domain.

My Domain is with Go Daddy today. I changed the name servers to:

NS1.MYWAHOSTING.COM
NS2.MYWAHOSTING.COM

As suggested, however when I try to start work on it through Rubix I receive the following message:


YES - If you already own thebestonlineaffiliatemarketingprograms.com, your DNS settings are not quite setup yet. You must point that domain at Wealthy Affiliate nameservers. To do this, you will update your DNS by following these instructions.

Any suggestion I what I can do to get Rubix tho allow me to work on setting up my webpage? I am stuck in limbo.

I check the website you mentioned at http://whois.net and it appears as available (image below). It seems like you haven’t bought the domain yet. Could there be a spelling error?

godaddy sent me the domain transfer code i paid the money to WA I signed all WA agreements...the code went through...but there was some sort of issue on WA's side? I don't understand the email that WA sent to me...has this kind of thing happened to any of my WA brother's and sister's out there??

While I wait for a response it's off to training I go :)

This is very confusing, even for me & I have done this before. The pictures of the pages in 1&1 as are shown do not look like this now. It should be corrected to reflect the changes. You just have to read each item in 1&1's list to find the correct place to click.

Hi,

I am looking to transfer a couple of domains from 123-reg to WA to keep ALL my online business right here to include hosting and registrar.

My question is do I simply need to change the DNS in my 123-reg control panel to Primary: ns1.mywahosting.com and Secondary: ns2.mywahosting.com

123-reg tell my I do not need a verification number so do I leave that blank? WA asks for domain name and transfer code before clicking the add domain button. 123-reg say only .com and .tv domains require this verification number of which I have added both a .com and a .tv domain to my WA transfer cart just the .co.uk domains now, with a little help :)


Looking forward to getting past this :)

Cheers
Jim

Well I am a proud owner of a new baby, oops mean new web site. But you do have to feed and nurture it daily for it to be a healthy vibrant child. I am expecting that child to support me sooner than later. D: Smile Big. After changing DNS at 1&1.com to WA hosting, they took about 9 to 10 hours to confirm the change. The move after that from the free Suber to my .com, was quick and seamless, transfer took about 8 seconds. Hey I do have question? How and where can you log in with FTP user and password, just curious?
