Migrating your Bergbuilds domain to Reclaim Hosting is a pretty simple process. You begin by clicking the 'migration information' link from your Bergbuilds dashboard.
Next, you will want to select the 'Get Started' button.
You will be presented with three options.
If you have only ever used a Bergbuilds subdomain (for example: yourname.bergbuilds.domains), you will want to select the first option: Register a new domain. Reclaim Hosting allows you to select an available domain name from top-level domains like .com, .org, .net, and many others.
Please note: the majority of folks who have created Bergbuilds domains will select option 1. Unless you have previously configured your Bergbuilds domain to have a personal domain similar to 'mywebsite.com' or 'mywebsite.org', then option 1 is the choice for you.
Follow through the prompts, and select your new domain name. It is recommended you check the box offering ID protection.
Next, review your shopping cart, provide your credit card information, and complete your order.
That's it! You have migrated your Bergbuilds domain to Reclaim Hosting. Watch your inbox for confirmation emails and instructions for logging into your personal cpanel dashboard.
If you have any questions, please reach out to our Digital Learning Assistants, or to ITDL staff and we will assist you.
If you have previously purchased a domain name to put atop your Bergbuilds domains, you will select either option 2 or 3. If you wish to transfer your domain from an existing domain provider to Reclaim Hosting, select '2' and follow the instructions. If you wish to continue to use your current domain registrar but move your content to Reclaim's hosting services, select option '3'. You will then be responsible for changing DNS configuration for your current domain registrant.
If you are interested in options 2 or 3, here are a few items to note:
Again, if you have any questions, please reach out to our Digital Learning Assistants, or to ITDL staff and we will assist you. Also, Reclaim Hosting has provides excellent customer support.
