This tutorial is for users who own a Hostgator Reseller Account.
This procedure is specifically for new sites where you do not have to worry about preserving content or transitioning from the old site to the new site with minimum down time.
There are 4 steps when whooshing a new site for a client:
- Change the client’s domain’s nameservers to use your Hostgator Reseller Account name servers
- Create the client account for that domain on your reseller account
- Add a host to your Whoosh plugin with the cPanel details for the new client account
- Whoosh the site on to the new host
Change The NameServers Where The Domain Is Registered
