Moving Domains – How to Avoid Disasters
I recently moved domains from my old hosting provider to a new one. My first domain moved fine, but polarcomputer.net and another domain that I owned did not. Unfortunately, the old provider cancelled my account and I was stuck without e-mail to authorize the transfer.
The biggest single takeaway from these experiences was to have all your domain information point to a domain independent e-mail like a Gmail account or such. Once I was able to get all the domain information pointed to the new e-mail account, the process was less painful and happened in about a day.
On the other hand, there were plenty of great resources out on the Net to migrate WordPress sites. A shout out to this link to give me enough information to avoid having to recreate the site.
