Buying domain, Hosting at WA and siterubix.com
For the last few weeks I have seen many questions about Buying and Hosting domains at Wealthy Affiliate. The first thing to understand is what a domain is.
In the online business a domain is a name that starts with www (fullstop) Your domain name typically be www.yourdomain.com.If you buy a domain you become the owner of a real estate in the online world where you are the ruler of that domain. You can set your own rules and rule the domain name you bought.
Wealthy Affiliate does not sell any domains. If you want to buy a domain you have to buy it from outside registrars like Hostgator, Namecheap, Bluehost and Godaddy. Many of these companies offer coupon codes that you can use to buy domains at a very cheap rate. You can google for them.
As a free member you can have 2 domains at a time. You can delete and build a new one but never can have more than 2 sites at a time. But free members can not host any domain bought from outside. If you work really hard you can up and set up your site for online earnings. You can use your site for 30 days if you do not upgrade to premium membership. All of these domains have siterubix.com at the end.
Premium members can have more than 2 free sites with the siterubix.com at the end. Also premium members can have own domain and unlimited hosting. That saves hosting expenses. For example you can have yourdomain1.com, yourdomain2.com, yourdomain1.net, yourdomain1.org etc. etc. But if you cease to be a premium member you will have 60 days to remove all of your domains from WA hosting.
Wherever you buy your domain you need to change your name server from that company's Domain Name Server (DNS) with Wealthy Affiliate DNS. When it is done you can start building your website here. Usually it takes some time. For changing the DNS, in every case you need to log-in to your account in that company to change the DNS and point it to WA DNS. If you find any difficulty and you are sure you did all the things needed, you can open a support ticket from the place you are trying to build your site in WA.
