Redirect your domain

This process is done at your domain provider. Follow this link for further instructions. 

If you are having difficulties with this step, don't hesitate to contact us directly. 

Moving your site

When you have redirected you domain to one of our servers, you might be promp with the following window. 

This means that the domain is pointing at our server, but there is no site configured at the host. Therefor it is displaying our default homepage for empty hosts. 

The final step in the sequence is uploading you site to our server. This can be done through SSH or SFTP. 

After creating a host, you receive an email with all the necessary information.  


To upload the site with SSH you have to go into your terminal an rsync the directory to the hosts public directory. 

The following command will upload you directory to the server: 

#cd into the directory you want to transfer
#remark the dot, this tells the host it from *this* directory you want to transfer from.
rsync -aP . <username>@<server>:/path/to/public

#This follows the password prompt. Enter the SFTP password from your email.
#first go into the directory

cd website/servebolt_example/upload_tempsite/

#Then upload the directory content to your public directory

rsync -aP .

If you want to edit your files upon upload you can connect to the server through SSH. For more information read our article on connecting using SSH
