To put the website design from the second domain onto the first domain we had to go through a series of steps.
Firstly we became the managers of their Domain Names through our reseller account, changing their NS records as well as creating an account for their primary domain on our hosting platform, which is also used for their email via M365, editing their MX, SPF and DMARC records accordingly.
Secondly, whilst we were transferring and updating the second domain site to the primary domain we pointed their web address to the previous Squarespace website. Concurrently, we installed WordPress via our hosting solution’s one step installer.
Finally, we transferred the preferred website via a migration tool for WordPress as we did not have access to the previous hosting provider’s cPanel for the domain. Once migration of the site occurred we updated:
- WordPress Core to the latest version at the time
- Plugins updated to the latest version at the time
- Theme updated to the latest version at the time
Once the site was ready, we pointed the web address to our hosting solution. As Universal Marina Systems is a Business Internet Presence client we also ensured that their Google Search Console and Google Analytics were in place as well as links to their social media accounts.
