Migrate to Reclaim Hosting

There are a few reasons that could lead you to consider exporting your website content from BuffsCreate. Perhaps you’re leaving the University, or maybe you’re just wanting to use your data on another hosting environment. Whatever the case, you have a couple options for how you want to handle this:

  • Migrate to Reclaim Hosting: If you are leaving the college, you can migrate your webspace from BuffsCreate to our hosting provider, Reclaim Hosting, for a discounted price. Follow the instructions below.
  • Host your domain elsewhere: If you would like to move to a third party service, you’ll want to capture a backup of your site. From there you’ll be able to import this backup into a handful of other web hosting services. You can find instructions on taking a backup here.

Migrate to Reclaim Hosting

If you would like to continue using your domain after graduation and would like to continue hosting your account with Reclaim, complete the following steps:

  1. Choose one of the shared hosting accounts that Reclaim offers. This link will take you directly to the Student/Individual Hosting plan option.
  2. If you already have a Top-Level domain (i.e. yourdomain.com) choose the I will use my existing domain and update my nameservers option.
  3. If your current website content exists on a subdomain (i.e. yourdomain.buffscreate.net), select the Register a New Domain or the Use a subdomain from Reclaim Hosting option.
  4. Enter a new top-level domain name if applicable.
  5. Complete the sign-up process/pay invoice.
  6. Complete the sign-up process/pay invoice. If you choose the Student/Individual Plan, your invoice total should be $30.00 without a domain registration or $45.00 with a domain registration.
  7. Send a support request to support@reclaimhosting.com with the following message:
