I’m about to graduate, how do I take my site with me?

After leaving KSC you will lose access to your KSCopen domain August 15th. You then have a number of options: migrate your site to Reclaim Hosting (the business that hosts KSCopen) to keep everything, download your entire site to store on your computer, or move everything over to another hosting provider.

Using Reclaim Hosting
KSCopen is hosted through Reclaim Hosting, a company that started out of the University of Mary Washington. Through our special partnership with them, you are eligible to have your domain and content migrated to your own hosting account. Just sign up for your own domain, submit a support ticket, and they’ll do the migration for you. You won’t have to provide any login information since they control the servers on both sides.

The process can be found in the link in step #3 below.

To sign up for your own Reclaim Hosting domain:

1. Login to KSCopen.

2. In the top navigation menu, go to Manage Your Account > Migration Information.

3. Click on Get Started in the Migration Offer box. Full instructions from Reclaim Hosting can be found here: https://stateu.org/docs/uncategorized/migrate-to-reclaim-hosting/

Other Hosting Providers

If you don’t want to continue with Reclaim Hosting and would rather use a different hosting company, you can download all your site files independently, purchase a URL, and upload the files to your new domain through FTP.
