I have a slightly different problem than the usual “move domain” questions: I have an active, busy, domain on another server. I’d like to move it, top to bottom, to DreamHost, but without any interruptions in service. I think there’s a way I can get the domain set up here at DreamHost (I don’t care about the registrar - I can deal with moving the name later) and then start copying /configuring everything over to DreamHost and then swithing the DNS. yes?
Two problems I’m not sure about: I host several email accounts and I’ll have to check to see if I can see what their passwords are to set up the same accounts on DreamHost, and second: how best to copy the accounts themselves? Many people keep lots of stuff in their IMAP hierarchies (I don’t, as it turns out) and I’m not sure how to grab all of that and move it to DreamHost.
