If you already have a domain with another provider (Strato, 1&1, alfahosting, profihost, etc.), you can easily switch domains to MAGIX using the domain switch form (KK form – provider switch form). After successfully switching domains, your MAGIX website can be opened via your old domain.
You need, at least, a registered offer from MAGIX Online World (Online Album, Website Maker, Web Design + Hosting or any of our hosting plans)
It's so easy:
- Download the KK form from our website and print it out. >>Click here<<
- Fill out the KK form in full and sign it. Please make sure that it is legible.
- Cancel the contract with your previous provider.
For .co.uk domains the extra information "Tag = ANTAGUS-DE" has to be specified with your old provider.
- Please fill out the form for the domain transfer / provider switch for your domain from your old provider and sign it. The form and instructions can be found on the website of your old provider.
- Fax the signed KK form and the domain transfer / provider switch form of your old provider to MAGIX. The fax number of the MAGIX Service Team is: +49 (0) 5741-310 768
