(Check Estimated Turnaround Times)

 

The following instructions show you how to request to have your current blog migrated and your new Showit site launched! Follow these steps when you are ready for your site and blog to go live. 

Please review Blog Migration Details before submitting.
 

How to Submit to Have Your Blog Migrated

  1. Inside of Showit, click "Site Settings" 

2. Click "EDIT" next to "Custom Domain" 

3. Click the button to get started.

4. Enter your domain name where you'd like your site and blog to be if you don't yet own a domain, learn how to get one here.

5. Check the boxes for the settings that apply to your current setup and make sure you check the box for "I currently have a blog at this domain". 

6. Double-check your details to ensure they are correct. Then provide your phone number and any additional info.

7. Next choose if you want to setup your blog now or wait until later. (Pro Tip: we suggest putting in this setup request near the end of your site build process when you can setup your blog at the same time and be ready to go live with your new site!)


8. When you click "Yes, proceed to blog setup" you will next be brought to this screen. Choose the blog setup type that represents your needs, in this case you would want to choose "migrate existing blog."


9. This screen is simply meant to ensure you know the domain your blog will be available at. Click Next to proceed.

10. Tell us the domain your blog is currently found at. (Pro Tip: Open your blog in another browser tab & copy + paste it over for full web formatting with the http)

11. Fill out the blog request form with your current registrar information (Pro Tip: The #1 thing that delays a blog migration is incorrect login info submitted here, double-check your credentials by logging in before submitting for smooth sailing!)

12. IMPORTANT - Here you will choose what happens after your blog is setup and migrated. You can either go live at that time or choose to have your blog setup but wait to go live until you contact the Showit team and inform them you are ready to launch.


11. Review your blog migration details, include any last additional notes, and click Submit when you're ready to send your request to the Showit team!
