 email considerations before transferring-in a domain to us


Do you have existing domain related email accounts? i.e.: you@yourdomain.com

Do you have FOR CERTAIN all the vital sent and received messages, as well as the addressbook downloaded or printed out?
Do you HAVE to have the email account migrated to us? If so we charge for email migration, the charges vary based on permitted access methods, access time required, and quantity of data.


Should you leave your domain and email where it is? (you will have to continue to pay a third-party for those services)
Do you have domain related email accounts setup into so many softwares/apps/devices – that the domain should remain at the current host, so that all the devices do not have to be re-setup?
Do you have any specialty email integration in place at their company requiring that the email accounts be left where they are (such as a Microsoft Enterprise 365 workflow or some other exchange server)?
Do your employees have the ability themselves, or do you have someone that can re-setup all the necessary devices with email, when provided the instructions?
If you need to leave the email hosted where it is at, requiring us to leave the domain where it is at, WE MUST be given the credentials to the existing host to ensure the proper DNS settings for the website. We are not responsible for any breakage of site DNS by you or the existing host.
If we are to provide email, we must control the domain on our servers – there are many ways that a “blackhole” could happen if we tried to provide email for a domain on external-to-us Nameservers/DNS records.
Any email backup, printout, or migration must be complete before transfer is begun. Just because you use email software on a computer, doesn’t mean the messages are permanently saved – if you use IMAP access, as an example, a server shutdown could wipe the data from the computer at next sync attempt.

Based on the information above, if you instead need to leave the domain and email at your current registrar, notify your DollarADay Sales representative that you have decided NOT to move your domain and email to us.

For any domain-relative email accounts you registered for with us, you will be notified of the accounts being ready for use, which will happen after the domain transfer is complete.
