Feature Highlight: Application Ownership Transfer
Cloud 66 is used by thousands of developers around the world who build amazing websites and applications for their clients. Oftentimes, once the development is done, they hand over the application to the client who can take care of normal deployments.
How does it work?
Until now, this transfer was done by contacting our support team who would facilitate the necessary checks and make the application transfer. Today we are rolling out automatic application transfers for all Cloud 66 accounts.
The transfer process has 3 steps:
- The original owner of the application starts the transfer by nominating the new owner.
- The new owner can then review and accept the transfer request.
- Automatic checks and validations run to ensure a smooth transfer of ownership (servers, backups, etc) from the source to the new owner, and the application transfer is completed.
A transfer doesn’t move the actual servers between cloud accounts and as such, there is no downtime during the transfer. There are some pre-requisites for the transfer that are checked during the process, such as ensuring both accounts have access to the same cloud account.
We have more features focused on helping you with your client-work coming up, so stay tuned!
