I updated my website and published it but when I try to go to the website it takes me to a link to buy the mittenshirt.com domain name. Is this legit? Do I have to purchase my domain name again thru a different company?

Hello Cherie,

If you already have your domain mittenshirt.com with ProfileBuilder.com then you do not have to buy it again. An enquiry on this domain advises that it is registered until 28 April 2014 at that time you would need to pay the renewal for your domain.

Transferring the domain is a relatively complex process when it is nearly expired or immediately after renewal. If you wish to transfer your domain to Yola then I would act quickly or your other option which may be more suitable,is pointing this domain to Yola's servers and paying the domain subscription with your previous host. You can do this by setting up A records with your host. The requirements for pointing to Yola's servers are: Publish to a domain you already own

Domain name and web address are in effect the same for the single purpose of publishing a website.

Hi,
Doesnt look like you own this domain anymore. You probably relied on a web developer to take care of your domain but forgot to renew it and this company "sitematrix.com" has bought the domain name.
You will have to pay them to purchase the domain from them. You better hurry as if someone else buys the domain, you will end up paying alot more.
