Hi all….am just wading through the guides and have also signed up to Simpleservers.
I transferred an existing domain name today and then installed Magento (after having been informed the domain had been transferred successfully) – all v easy and as per the guide. Only a slight problem encountered in that I’d installed Magento too quickly after transferring domain name so instead of the admin I got a placeholder.
Raised a ticket with Simple Servers and got a reply from them in LESS THAN 5 MINUTES – v fast and at 10pm on a Friday too! Hats off to Simpleservers for the excellent service so far and also big thanks to Matt & Dave for the guides ..really easy to use and informative….hopefully in 24 hours I’ll be able to continue with Magento once everything has propogated through…
That’s great to hear on both counts :)
You know that if you’re impatient you can change your hosts file on your computer to force your computer to look at the IP address for your domain name?
It varies a little from one operating system to another, but just google “change hosts file for” and add your operating system on the end.
This is how we were able to transfer this website in 30-40 minutes and be back working on the real version will very little down time.
Will do’s! We have a guide to get recorded and another block of guides will be ready as well.
Great news Alex, I know the speed of Simple Servers response times are incredible but they still surprise me every time I hear a story like this.
On a Friday Night too. :)
Every expert was once a beginner
Fab to hear. If you ahve any comments or suggestions on the guides as you go through them, pop a comment at the bottom and me or Dave will be back to you.
