Would like to move all old files and old domain to new domain. How?

Posted March 19, 2016 2.7k views

Good day everyone! Hopefully warm weather where you’re at. :)

As stated in my previous posts I had been with Lunarpages (and Cpanel) for the better part of 8 to 9 years before coming to DO a few months back. Well, I just purchased a new domain and I wish to have my old domain currently on DO only parked with the current filesystem to point to my new domain.

What I got:
Droplet: xxx (not really…lol blushes)

What I would like:
Droplet: kitribe (not needed to rename, but would be nice.)
domain: (just finished the purchase process with about an hour ago and been looking at tutorials ever since.)

PS: OH BTW, if this changes anything…i’m also using Server Pilot if that helps any.

If all I need to do is update the CNAME etc records (I kind of know how to do that through this interface) that would be cool but I haven’t moved an inch so I can get all the details/facts first.

Hope to hear from you and thanks,
