How to migrate a domain with BigCommerce

Ok so having taken the decision to migrate The Little Treasure Box to Party Bag Kids UK the question is how do we do this without taking the store offline.

BigCommerce is sweet but the fly in the ointment is DNS this could take up to 48 hours to propagate.

The way we dd this was to utilize cloudflare – by the way Cloudflare you have a big fan here :-)

To switch these domains I did the following – get things ready

OK so no I have both domains on cloud flare and this ready to go as the cloudflare DNS is local I no longer have to worry about propagation – off to bed.

Kids wake me out the next day and Lucas has a swimming clas at 10am we have breakfast and decide to flip the sites.

Test site – Job done off swimming.
