Below we have listed some tips on what to consider if you want to move to Loopia and use web hosting with us.
In order to transfer everything in the smoothest way, you should configure everything before we point the domain to our name servers. If you do this, then there will be no problem that the website becomes unavailable and that e-mail stops working.
If you already have a web hosting account with another provider, you can check the notice period and how to complete your current web hosting subscription. Note that you should wait to terminate your previous hosting account until it is transferred to us or at least two to three weeks before the previous provider closes your account.
If you do not have a web hosting account with us, you can start by ordering it here.
If you have more than one domain name to be transferred, you can add remaining domain names after you receive login credentials for your web hosting account. You will find information how to add more domain names to your web hosting account here.
Note that it is very important that you upload the website material and email addresses in your account before we transfer the domain name from your current provider. If you do not, the website or e-mail may become unavailable.
Lastly, the domain name needs to be redirected to our name servers, which means that traffic from the Internet is directed to our servers instead. During a redirection, it usually takes about a day for the new DNS information to spread around the Internet and during that time, email can be sent to both your old supplier and us. However, no messages should be lost if the account of your previous provider is still active during this time.
