Magento transfer

The steps involved in moving Magento from another host to M.D.G. IT are:

  • Duplicate the site to our servers for testing.
  • Reduce DNS TTL values at the current DNS host


Once the duplicate site tests ok,

  • The current site is put into maintenance, transfer the live database, update DNS records to direct traffic to the new server
  • Update the domain NS at the registrar to point to our NS (both NS will have identical records at this stage)
  • Transfer email if required.
