transferring domain w/existing website
 
I have an existing domain and website promoting a different business. I am considering joining PIPS. My question is - what happens to the existing business that I am advertising with my current domain if I transfer the domain?

I suggest just keeping your existing site the way it is and starting a new PIPS site. There's nothing wrong with having more than one site. Actually it's smart to have multiple sites so if something happens to one you have more.

Do you mean to keep the existing Domain name and have that for PIPS ?

Yes, I am wondering what happens if I transfer the current domain that is currently promoting a different business - ie does PIPS use one page only of a website - I am currently using 3 of 5 therefore leaving 2 available?

We require a domain that is registered directly with us to accept your application. That is a new domain and it has no other site on it.

You could have one free hosting account for that domain and a free PIPS website, etc.

Once you are a member then you can also request a free hosting account for your other website/domain. You would need to transfer those files yourself.

One website per domain name.
One domain per hosting account.

Patrician - Thank you for the concise reply. When you state "we" are you referring to PIPS or Just Host. Also - in regard to your statement, "once you are a member, you can request a free hosting account", are you referring to being a member of/and making that request of PIPS or Just Host or both.

In addition, when signing up with PIPS/registering with Just Host, is one domain sufficient for PIPS or are 3 advisable?

Hi KLT

WE - means PIPS -

PIPS - PlugInProfitSite.com

PIPS - PlugInProfitSite.com/Domains (Reseller, Wild West Domains)

PIPS - PlugInProfitHost.com = (Reseller, Just Host)

Your relationship/membership would be with Plug-In Profit Site - Not Just Host -

You would register a domain at http://www.pluginprofitsite.com/domains - which is our reseller account - (required) --

We would set up your hosting account on our account with Just Host and you would not need to sign up for anything with Just Host that relates to Plug-In Profit Site -

You only need 1 domain name for Plug-In Profit Site. However if you want more than one you can always use them for redirecting affiliate links or for other purposes...

I think your best bet would be to register a brand new domain with our partner domain registrar and use your existing domain for something else. Transfers can take a while and there can be complications. With a new domain registration we can have your new site up and running for you within 24 hours.
