Website Pro Trouble Buying Domains
This post is meant to raise a concern / ask a question about selling domains.
I sold a domain to a client through Vendasta on the premise that the Client Dashboard/Business App would make it easy to manage their domain settings. However, when we went to use it, we quickly found that you can't change the nameservers.
For anybody that builds sites in Wix or Shopify, that's a massive headache because those services rely on changing your NS records.
Also, I was kind of disappointed to see how limited control over your domains you have in the Vendasta platform compared to Godaddy or Google Domains. I doubt any of my clients would ever notice, but it doesn't really feel like you own the domain when you can't edit the name servers or transfer the domain out on your own.
My question is, is there any plan in place to expand the domain settings? I was expecting to see the Godaddy dashboard when I activated a Godaddy domain.
Thank you for your post. I'm sitting here thinking I was going to quickly connect the Wix website I just created for my client's launch tomorrow and cannot update the nameservers to complete this publication of the page. Ugh...Your post is most helpful. What did you ultimately do in order to get your client's Wix site to connect to the domain purchased through Vendata "Godaddy Domains"? This is my first time with this and it's quite disappointing indeed. Sigh....
