Before taking ownership of your new website, you will need to the steps below as part of the handover process. In order to complete this you will need to ensure that you are equipped with the following:
- Credit Card to pay for the 12-month premium Wix subscription
- Login details for your domain provider (if you are using your own domain)
Step 1 - Accept Transfer
You will receive an email prompting you to accept the website transfer. This link will expire after three days.
Step 2 – Plan Selection
Once accepted, you will be required to either login to or create a Wix account. You may be asked to add templates and various Wix add-ons, skip through this where ever you can until you arrive at the dashboard.
You should then arrive at the My Sites page. If you can see your new Netball Australia website on the dashboard, hover your cursor over the relevant site and choose Select Site. If you do not see your website, go back to your email (as per Step 1) and Accept Transfer.
When you arrive at the dashboard, you will need to select ‘Upgrade’ from the bottom of the dashboard.
You will then be prompted to upgrade your plan. We recommend the Essential package from the premium range.
Once this is selected, you will then need to chose a billing cycle.
Please note: In order for the PlayHQ Fixture & Results and Ladder widgets to work, you MUST choose from any of the Premium options for at least a 12-month cycle.
Once a premium 12-month plan is chosen, follow the prompts to the payment section.
Step 3 – Domain Selection
We highly recommend that in line with best practice, you obtain a custom domain. If you already have a custom domain, proceed to Step 5.
If you are yet to obtain a domain, you can do so via a reputable provider, once this is done, proceed to Step 5.
Alternatively, you can purchase a new domain from Wix. To do so, proceed to Step 5 and choose Buy a new domain.
If you opt for a Netball Australia supplied domain (eg. organisation.state.communitynetball.com.au) skip to Step 4. If this option is taken, you will need to add firstname.lastname@example.org as a Domain Manager (further instructions are provided in Step 4).
Step 4 - Connecting Your Netball Australia Domain
Please note: This process will require Netball Australia support due to the technical requirements involved to connect the domain.
Once the payment has been made (upon completion of Step 2), you will arrive back at the dashboard. From here select Settings.
Under General, select Roles and Permissions.
Select the 3-dot menu which corresponds with email@example.com and choose Change Role.
Then scroll down and select Domain Manager and choose Save.
Once completed, you will need to reply to Netball Australia's communications to advise that you are ready for your new Netball Australia domain to be connected. Once you receive confirmation this has occurred, you can then proceed to Step 6.
Step 5 - Connecting Your Own Domain
Once the payment has been made (upon completion of Step 2), you will arrive back at the dashboard. From here select Connect Your Own Domain.
You will then be presented with two options as per the example below. Select the relevant option to proceed.
Please note: If you purchase a new domain, the connection process will be done automatically. You can then proceed to Step 6.
If you are connecting a domain you already own, upon choosing this option, you will be prompted to enter the domain and be presented the appropriate steps for completion of this.
Once you complete the steps to connect your domain, it will then need to be checked. To view the status of the connection, you can select Domains from your profile.
This may take up to two days to complete. A notification will be emailed to you once the domain is successfully connected.
Once the domain has been connected, you will be presented with an option to assign the domain to the website. Select Assign under the relevant domain and follow the prompts.
Step 6 – Publishing the Website
In order to publish your website, you will need to navigate to either the Dashboard or the My Sites page.
If in the dashboard, select Edit Site.
Alternatively, if you are on the My Sites page, select the dropdown arrow from the relevant site and select or Edit Site (you can also use the pencil icon).
When you arrive at the site editor, select Publish in the top right corner. You may be presented with several follow up questions and prompts. Once these are completed, your site will then be published!
