Backups DigitalOcean

I use WHM with digital ocean and I have transferred multiwordpress sites.
They are pointing somewhere else at the moment and I wanted to know if I need to add all of this domains inside Digital Ocean on my droplet or just to change the records somewhere ??

Thanks!

It's definitely a good idea to setup DNS using our DNS tool: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-host-name-with-digitalocean
Also, be sure that your domains aren't being directed to old IP addresses using another tool you previously configured.

  • Hello,

    Thanks for your answer.
    Can you help me with this to be sure that everyting is ok ?

    As I said I transferred some sites to my own WHM cpanel and all sites inside the cpanel are now pointing to the DNS of digitalocean.
    After, I created the same domains that were transferred on Digitalocean and everythhing is matching with the info that is inside the cpanel. (dns, mx, etc.) They also have the same IP address. I checked here also : http://viewdns.info/dnsreport/?domain=easa.ca it looks ok.
    But for example when I go on www.easa.ca it doesn't work, which is one of the sites that I try to make it work.

    1. Is it too early to check ? DNS points to digital ocean. It was added to the registrar 15hrs ago.
    2. IP address is correct and points to my new droplet where the WHM&Cpanel are installed.
    3. Or maybe I should first create all domains into Digitalocean and then make the transfer from cpanel to cpanel ?(not sure on this one it doesn't look like a good suggestion)

    Ok that would be it.. Not sure what am I missing ?

    Thanks again!
