How do I transfer a client's url from Go Daddy to BC. I want to use one of my 5 hosting sites for this client.

I developed her  web site using Muse. Thank you

    Hi Phyllis,

     

    You need to go into the site admin and set up the domain names under the Site menu -> Domain Names

     

    Then you need to log into GoDaddy and change the Name server settings to:

     

     

    NS1.worldsecuresystems
    NS2.worldsecuresystems

     

    This change could take up to 48 hours.

    Sorry Phyllis,

     

    Need to add a .com on the end of those.

     

    NS1.worldsecuresystems.com
    NS2.worldsecuresystems.com

     

    My bad. Sorry.

    Hi Phyllis,

     

    You should no need to use the authorisation code as you are not physically moving the domain - you are simply pointing it to the BC servers to manage.

     

    Have you set up the domain name in BC already?  It won't work until you have done that. 

     

    regards

    Ursh

    Again to be sure though as the other guys have provided the right information.

    You are not transfering the domain reigstra to BC so if you did the UDI number - this is not what your doing. All you are doing is pointing either the name servers if you want everything from email to the website to be on BC OR you just point the A- Records (web traffic only) to BC.

    Brad,

     

    Does this transfer the email servers/service as well? I have a similar situation moving from 1and1.com to BC. I don't want to interrupt the email of my client.

    In that case you would only change the A Record ...
