i got hostgator ironed out, but-

Postby sharonv » Fri Sep 26, 2014 3:29 pm

now I find another problem, I tried to put my url into the address bar- homeaffordabilitycalculator.net and thought that the problem was on there end, because when you put the site into the address bar it just comes up with the hostgator site- they said the reason for that is because there is no content on the site now.

It was just fine before I changed it from .com to .net

So I went from a beautiful site to, having no content on my site now.

and I was just going to start to apply to a cpa site on Monday to do some advertising for my site.

Hoping you can fix this.

Sharon ;)

Re: i so now i bought a site that is empty that has nothing

Postby sharonv » Sat Sep 27, 2014 5:24 pm

I thought when I bought this site it was ready to go, just like a saw it looking a few days ago, now I have to build a website and go buy content, what happened to all of the stuff that was on there. I spent a 1,000 dollars for this site that now has nothing on it, but was filled with stuff a couple of days ago? How do I get all of the same stuff on there that was on there 2 days ago. are you now saying I should have copied everything that was on there so I now have to start with nothing.

Re: Why don't i just copy all of the articles that are on my

Postby sharonv » Sat Sep 27, 2014 6:45 pm

what if I just copied all of those articles on www.homeaffordabilitycalculator.com which was my site that I paid for in the first place, because I guess your selling that one now to. and once someone buys that site all of that information on the that site will disappear as well.

I am so upset was on hostgtor for an hour

Postby sharonv » Sun Sep 28, 2014 8:05 am

the lady I was talking to for an hour she said that I should ask you:
I would contact him and ask him when he is going to move the content to your account- since he no longer owns the site, so therefore he doesn't need that content anymore. I would think that would be the appropriate thing to dol What use would it be for him to keep it. It's a simple procedure for him to transfer the content into your account at Hostgator

As I understand it, you have a website with a .com extension. You can't just change extensions, But you can install a new wordpress with the .net or any extension you want as long as that domain (with the .net) is registered as a .net with your registrar. Example, my domains are registered with the registrar NameSecure (I've been with them for years, no reason for me to change), but all these Domains are Hosted with Hostgator. So if I want to change my sports site from a .com to a .net, I have to re-register it with my registrar and then install the now wordpress domain with the .net with hostgator. (Here's hoping that made sense)

I just entered the domain http://homeaffordabilitycalculator.com into the my URL field in my browser and I get this message:
"FOR SALE! THIS DOMAIN HAS JUST BEEN LISTED FOR SALE. Click here to inquire" And you are right there is no content on it. And your http://homeaffordabilitycalculator.net has nothing on it but Latin phases.

So unless the site was backed up, the content is gone!

If this site was in your name, you can cross your figures and ask Hostgator if they still have a back up of the site. But if it has been a while, hostgator my now have it backed up as you see it now. I don't know how far back hostgator saves their back ups.

Lesson learned -Always have your site backed up and don't rely on the hosting company. I have test sites that I use and once I am happy, I transfer the content including images to the new site. Also if I make changes, I make them on the test site.

Note - Buy a test site (you don't care about the domain name). Then create Sub-domains on your primary test site. That way you don't need to continue buying new domains and spending money and sub-domains are FREE, at least with hostgator.

Next Note - WordPress in your Dashboard, under Tools, you can export (backup) your site/page(s)/post(s). Then imports them if something goes wrong. I haven't tested this for the reason mentioned above. but I think I will just to see if it does back up my test site.

I have posted 4 videos on how to back up and restore your website, transfer from one website to another. Same goes for pages and posts. Here is the link to the post in this forum. http://affiliatemarketingdude.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=862

anyway I hope I didn't loss you in my reply.
