Hello,

Two queries please.

1). Please can you give me the URLs of the servers I should point my DNS to for the domain hosted here on this trevorcuthbert.com droplet, and

2). I’m hoping to migrate the site to SiteGround soon to avail of their visual interface cpanel. Their team are handling the migration for me so I’m passing on the log-in credentials to them. Is it possible to please disable the two-factor authentication while this is happening? If that’s not possible, would you consider providing a full backup of the site (files and database) so that I can upload the backup files to SiteGround manually? Another option’s to generate a SSH key to give to SiteGround to complete the transfer, but my command line skills are weak so I’m not able to action them. Grateful for whichever of these options you feel is most appropriate to help action the transfer.

Many thanks.

Hello,

1).I can’t understand what you mean,but I guess you want to modify your DNS set,from digitalocean’s droplets to the cpanel,right?If it is,just get the cpanel server’s IP address and change it.If you use DigitalOcean dns,here is a tutorial DNS Quickstart.

2).I recommend the first way.if your cpanel will installed on a server,please check your droplets’ image,create a new one and upload it to the new server,then install the cpanel.

Kind regards.

Hello, @wtc555

  1. If you could elaborate more on this it will help us to give you the exact steps you need to follow. If you need to point a domain name to any external provider you can either update the A record of the domain name or update the domain’s nameservers.

  2. You can generate the site’s full backup (files and database) and upload them to your Siteground’s account. Their migrations team can also handle the process for you if you generate a ssh-key for them using the ssh-keygen command:

ssh-keygen -t rsa

You can find more information about the ssh-key generation process via this link:

Hope this helps!

Alex

SSH keys provide a more secure way of logging into a virtual private server with SSH than using a password alone. With SSH keys, users can log into a server without a password. This tutorial explains how to generate, use, and upload an SSH Key Pair.
