How much downtime will there be when I transfer my site to PurpleCat?
As long as things are done properly there should be no downtime as a result of the move. We suggest following these steps:
- Sign up for an account with us.
- Upload your website to our servers and test to make sure everything appears as it should.
- Update the name servers with your domain registrar to point to the ones we provide in your welcome email.
- Wait a couple of days before cancelling your old hosting plan. It can take a couple of days for a domain to transfer and it is best to leave some overlap to ensure there is no downtime.
If you follow these steps the transition will happen smoothly.
