I was under the impression that I could purchase the domain once I upgraded. I attempted to last evening, and it came back not available. Is there a solution on your end, or do I have to start over with a different domain name? What do I need to do now? Thank you, Don

An available siterubix domain doesn't guarantee that same domain to be available in a .com, .net, or .org. But, you can slightly adjust the domain name to find one that's available.

Once you find one that works for you, you can then easily move all your content from your free siterubix site over to your new domain.

This training walks you through the process:

You will not have to worry about loosing your existing pages, posts, images, theme, plugins, and settings. When WA domain purchase is ready after its transition to a new servers, you can purchase a dot com domain name and MOVE your free siterubix.com website to it.

Hi - it doesn't matter if your chosen .com domain is different from your free Siterubix domain. You can still transfer all your work over, you don't have to start again.

Take a look at my blog post before purchasing your new domain.

Message from Kyle regarding Site Domains - "The Domain service has scheduled downtime as they are changing their service, so we have programmed according for this. It should be sorted shortly."

You may start with a siterubix subdomain around a focused niche and build up content and until you are satisfied with your niche and name, down the line have your own dot com, as some affiliate programs do not work with a subdomain. Cost of which is $15 yearly each privacy included. You can then move your siterubix to your dot com applying the move feature found within the site manager which is an easy process.

Another reason is that if you made a mistake on a dot com domain, you won't be able to edit the URL, you'd have to purchase a new one.

there was never any guarantee that the name you choose as a siterubix is available as a domian...
but checking as you create the siterubix would give you an idea...
it soundslike you will need to choose a different name for your domain...
you can try leandomainsearch to see if there is one close to what you are after...
when you have bought one then if you are hosting it here you can use the move button to easily move the contents of your siterubix to the new domain ( click on the move on the siterubix to move the contents to the domain)
it is also worth checking social to see if that is also available with
i hope you manage to get a name you are happy with...
