I have to migrate from hostgator to Digital Ocean help me


#6

I just created a new droplet with new ubuntu version.


#7

Now follow this guild till step 32 (excluding 32).


#8

Ok thanks.


#9

Let me know once you have done that


#10

Sure I am following the post.


#11

Have a look!



#12

I haven’t but I am following Paritosh’s referral


#13

Sorry, Paritosh for late replay.:neutral_face:
I was following instructions that you were provided me. But when it comes to step #9. Update your DNS records
I was getting confused. So, I checked another tutorial and I found a different way. I Have done some work.

  1. I created a new droplet.
  2. I downloaded the backup from previous hosting.
  3. Then I download & installed putty software. In this software, I have successfully run all the commands there.
  4. Also, I haven’t updated the name server yet.
    So, what should be my next step?

#14

Where did you register your domain name?


#15

Go daddy


#16

Are you using CloudFlare? or any other CDN?


#17

No I am not using any CDN.


#18

Quickly go to CloudFlare and create an account, add your domain name there.


#19

Why is it important? I mean can not we continue without CDN?


#20

CloudFlare DNS is fast, better than default GoDaddy, you can disable CloudFlare CDN.


#21

Paritosh I am getting confused. Because I have no technical knowledge. For your information, I was using cloud flare free CDN. But I faced lots of problems. That’s why I left it.

Paritosh we will continue this thread tomorrow. Because now I thinking what to do or what not? So it would be better to me. Continue this conversation at tomorrow’s morning with a fresh mind. Is it Ok?


#22

Alright, talk to you tomorrow :wave:


#23

I will tell you a easy way to migrate tomorrow :wink:


#24

Yes, definately you can.

Step 1. Login to GoDaddy > Manage DNS > Set default DNS
Step 2. Now, you will be able to edit DNS records directly at GoDaddy.

Add as below

Record type Hostname Value TTL
A @ Type here Server IP 600
CNAME www example.com 600

However, we strongly recommend Cloudflare because its UI is neat and clean and it’s faster as mentioned earlier by @Paritosh I do agree.
