If you were hoping to transfer your domain to Serversaurus as well, site migrations and domain transfers are two different processes. To learn more about domain transfers we have a step to step guide.
Before we get started, for security reasons we advise not to send login credentials via email, so at any time if you need to send credentials for secure transfer please use our Escrow site.
If you have not already, register with us.
Now, there are three main aspects of a migration specific to your setup, to move forward we will need to know which of the below options apply to your migration.
1. Website Hosting: Firstly, there is the hosting for the website. This is pretty self explanatory, to migrate your website we will need granted access to your current hosting manager. If needed, upon receiving your credentials we can review the current resources being used by your website and recommend an appropriate plan.
2. DNS Hosting: Secondly, there is the hosting of your DNS records. Think about whether you would like your DNS managed at Serversaurus as well. This will incur no further fees and having the DNS hosted with your website definitely makes managing your services easier.
If you would like to leave your DNS with your current provider, this works too however we will still need granted access to your DNS Manager regardless to either update the records with your new IP address post migration or to migrate the DNS Zone. Alternatively, feel welcome to update them yourself.
3. Domain Manager: This is where you purchased the registration for your domain. If you have decided to migrate your DNS records to Serversaurus, we will need granted access to your Domain manager so we are able to update your domain nameservers to point to Serversaurus. Alternatively, feel welcome to update them yourself.
If you have lost track of where your DNS, Website or Domain is managed just let us know and we can help you identify your current suppliers.
To arrange a migration, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will ask you for the above information so please be prepared to inform us on which services you would like migrated and have the required login credentials on hand.
Once we have received those details from you, we will be able to take a closer look at your website and then schedule a time to proceed with the migration.
