  • For DNS updates:
    • Service does not include domain transfers between registrar. Customer is responsible for any desired domain transfer.
    • If DNS is managed from the source host via a control panel, to which Server Sitters has access, then Server Sitters will update the DNS records to point to the destination host.
    • If DNS is managed from the destination host via control panel to which Server Sitters has access, then Server Sitters will update the DNS records to point to the destination host.
    • If DNS is managed elsewhere, and the customer provides a control panel login, then Server Sitters will update the DNS records to point to the destination host.
    • In other cases, Server Sitters will provide instructions for the customer about what DNS changes are required. The customer will be responsible for making these changes.
  • A time window for the migration cutover will be scheduled with the customer. Typically, this window will be 1 hour. The websites may be unavailable for some or all of this window. DNS propagation delays may cause the website to be unavailable for a longer period. When possible, Server Sitters will lower the TTL on DNS records to minimize propagation time.
