Summer Cleaning: Kin HR

I was chatting with the team a few days ago about an internal vs. external focus within Reclaim, and always making sure there’s some sort of balance happening there. The last few months have largely been consumed by launching a sister web hosting company, hosting a two-day event out of state, and phases of heavy support. I consider this external.…

Changing a Domain Name

A very common support request we often get (from schools especially) is asking for assistance with changing a domain name. More specifically, switching the primary domain in a user’s account and moving all of their website data from originaldomain.com to newdomain.com. This means that we have to inform both the hosting platform (WHMCS) and the server (WHM) of the change.…

Though I…

Converting a Single WP Instance into a WP Multisite

Yesterday I had a user request that his WordPress blog was converted into a WordPress multisite. Totally doable, but unfortunately Installatron only has the “Easy Button” for a first-time installation, not an installation that already exists. (And nope, cloning won’t work either so don’t even bother.) Transforming an existing install into a multisite is rather straightforward, but there are a few…

Installatron: Import From a Different Account

Occasionally we’ll get support requests where the user wants to move (i.e. clone) content from one website to another website, and it just so happens that those domains are not on the same hosting account. (As a refresher, domains within the same hosting account/cPanel can be cloned between each other pretty easily by using Installatron’s Cloning Feature.) The following post is about…

Domains Dinner: Get-Togetherness

I hesitated even writing this post. It’s just about one itty bitty detail of the Domains 17 conference. A detail that is normally overlooked or tossed to the side as “free time”.
