Ready to move to DDS Hosting? For new customers, we will migrate up to 5 domains for free.
Here is an outline of the general process of moving your website to your DDS Hosting services.
Whether you're moving your website yourself, or you've ordered a "Website Migration Service" there is no way to guarantee that your emails will be transferred to your DDS Hosting services. While typically emails for moves between hosting services using the same control panel (Direct Admin to Direct Admin or c-Panel to c-Panel) can generally be transferred; we recommend preparing for the moveby following the steps below:
First, download your emails using an email client, such as Thunderbird or Outlook.
Then, when your information has been moved to your DDS Hosting services, upload the emails to your current hosting space using IMAP.
This is an extra precaution you can take to ensure the smooth transfer of your services. Whether we're performing your transfer, or your trasnferring your website alone, the following is a very basic outline of the "website migration" process:
First, you'll log into your control panel with your current hosting service.
Then, you'll generate a backup of your site.
Next, you'll download this backup to a file manager.
Finally, you'll log into your DDS Hosting control panel and upload your files. *After you've successfully uploaded your files to your DDS Hosting, and your site is JUST the way you want it, you're ready to point your domain to our nameservers!
