How do I avoid email downtime when I transfer my site to your servers?

To avoid email downtime the following steps need to be taken before modifying the DNS:
  • Set all emails on the old server to auto-forward to a third party email address or ISP provided email address.
  • We will create a "catchall" email on the new server (our server) and set it to auto-forward to the same third party email address or ISP provided email address.
  • Modify your DNS information and propagation will begin. During this propagation period emails will either go to the old server or to the new server. In both the cases, emails will be instantly forwarded to the third party email address or ISP provided email address.
  • At the end of propagation period, you may cancel the email forwarding as well as create more POP email accounts on the new server.
If you need assistance with this process we would be more than pleased to help you in any way that we can.
