    Your first notification of this transition -- we encourage you to begin setting up your new user profile and site at Guild Launch.

  • August 5th
    You will receive a reminder notice of the transfer.

Why should I transfer my guild to Guild Launch?

We were founded in 2006 and 7 years later we are still the biggest name in guild hosting. In addition to transferring a lot of your WowStead data we have some really great features that we know you'll love. From our enormous selection of amazing site templates, outstanding customization, multi-game support and truly epic support, we know our guild hosting service will provide you with the things you'll need for your guild to succeed.

What do I need to do?

You and your guild members will need to create accounts with Guild Launch (if you do not already have one) and begin transferring your guild's information from WowStead to Guild Launch.

Will my WowStead account transfer over to Guild Launch?

To some extent yes, but you will need to create a site and user account on Guild Launch. But fear not, it only takes 30 seconds and we will be transitioning some of your more essential pieces.

How much of our WowStead site will be transferred over to Guild Launch?

We are working very closely to transfer as much information from the WowStead system to Guild Launch. At the present time the following data will be transitioned over to your new Guild Launch account:

  • All of your forum data
  • Your current WowStead subdomain
    • Your new URL will be http://[YourCurrentWowSteadSubDomain].wowlaunch.com

We will be honoring any remaining subscription credits or tokens that are on your WowStead site and applying these credits to your new Guild Launch account on August 12th, 2013.

Does Guild Launch also have a token system?

We do have a comparable Crowd Pay system so your members can still contribute. We also use PayPal for subscriptions and we accept credit card payments.

What if we already have a guild site on Guild Launch?

If you already have a site on Guild Launch please create a new site for the transition. If your current Guild Launch site has significant history and usage please contact support to discuss assigning the transition data to your existing site. We will need the newly created site to track the data we need to transition your data.

What about my voice servers?

There should be no interruption in your service and no action needed by you. Your service will seamlessly transfer and you will receive your next bill from Guild Launch.

What if I have more questions?
