What is site ownership transfer?

Transferring ownership is the assignment of all rights, resources, and billing subscriptions of the sites to a new user without missing or deleting anything.


Former Owner

Once a site is transferred, the former owner will lose the right to access the site on their Shifter dashboard. If access is still needed, ask the new owner to send a team invitation.

New Owner

The new owner must register a valid credit card to pay the transferred site's subscription.
