Changing Providers

Here is quick checklist of items when changing providers

Domain Transfer

Please make sure that you/your new agency are getting full access to your domain. This can be done by providers such as crazydomains.com.au or godaddy.com.au and is a straight forward process however please allow for a week or 2 weeks for this to happen.

Emails

If you are using emails with your previous agency (and not with Microsoft or Google), you will need to setup your emails with your new Agency/Hosting Provider, please ensure that you have setup your new emails before disconnecting your last emails.

Email Backups

You may want to backup your emails because otherwise there is a chance that you will lose all the emails. To backup your outlook emails please view this link
