My daughter-in-law purchased a domain for her business and I wanted to help her out with her website. I do understand that we can only host our own domains here at WA. I'm just wondering if there is any way for me to help her legitimately? Can I purchase her domain and host it here? I absolutely don't want to do anything wrong as a WA Member thus why I am asking. Thank you!!

Some members host client websites here. As long as you have less than the maximum sites it should be OK. You can send a private message to Kyle if you want but it usually takes a few days for him to respond. He answers all his own messages and he's very busy.

Hi Kathy,

Yes, you can purchase the domain under your name and host here as it would be your domain and website per say.

I would suggest though for you to get her to become a wealthy affiliate through your affiliate link. This way, you can help her transfer her own domain and set up her website and also, she can learn in her own time how to run a success business for herself online through Wealthy Affiliate.

When she discovers the importance of having such an incredible resource at her fingertips being with Wealthy Affiliate, she will opt to go Premium. I know it's not about money with you in this instance Kathy, but you will get the commission from her upgrade plus you will be able to help her grow directly through Wealthy Affiliate.

Happy New Year Kathy, hope you're doing well :)

Thank you!! Very SOUND advice. Her business is service oriented and a thing she is passionate about. I doubt that she wants to put work into building websites as that is not her end game. She just wants a good looking website. Not that I couldn't talk with her about how this could turn into something so much better. I'm just not sure that's what she cares about presently. I was just trying to be a nice mom-in-law and help her out at little. Thank you for replying. Your advice was great and practical and true. I appreciate it!

You don't have to have your site hosted to be a member here. I started my site just before finding WA, so I'm here for the lessons and help of the community.

I'm sorry. I think maybe you misunderstood my question. I am a member here at WA. I want to host a website for a domain my daughter-in-law owns for her business so I can help her with the website. The way I understand it, I can only host a domain that I own here at WA. My daughter-in-law owns the domain. I'm just trying to find someone who can answer how I may be able to help her since I'm a WA member or if I wouldn't be able to help her with her website because she owns the domain.

When you say help her with her website, what are you going to do for her? Build it? Once it's transferred here under your account, how will she access it? I'm not sure you're allowed to share one WA account.

You can surely transfer her site to WA but you need to think long term. Who will build and maintain her account after you've helped her?

It would be a better solution if she had her own WA account and transfer her site here (or not), and learn how to build it herself. In the long run, unless you're the one doing everything for her website, then she should get her own account here.
