Moving from Cargo 1 to Cargo 2

What will happen to my existing site?
Nothing. Existing Cargo 1 sites are not affected when you make a site on Cargo 2, and will continue to function normally. Once you launch a Cargo 2 site you can choose to delete your Cargo 1 site, although this is not required.

What will happen to my existing upgrade?
If you have an active Cargo 1 upgrade, this will cover your Cargo 2 site for the remainder of the upgrade’s duration. When your Cargo 1 upgrade is due for renewal, you will receive an email offering the option to choose between keeping your Cargo 1 site upgraded, or upgrading your Cargo 2 site. Note that a Cargo 2 upgrade is $99 yearly (or $13 monthly). If your Cargo 2 site has not yet been covered under a Cargo 1 upgrade, you can do this through the Cargo 2 Admin: Settings tab → UpgradeOr transfer an Upgrade.

What will happen to my Domain?
If you have a personal domain connected to a Cargo 1 site, creating a Cargo 2 site will not affect it. When you’re ready to launch your new Cargo 2 site and move your personal domain from your Cargo 1 site, some additional DNS configuration is required. See this page for instructions.

How do I copy my content to Cargo 2?
When first setting up a Cargo 2 site, you’ll see a dropdown menu where you can select which site to copy content from. If you don’t see this option, make sure you log in to your Cargo 1 site before setting up your Cargo 2 site. If you have already created a Cargo 2 site, you can copy your content by going to the Settings tab and clicking Import Content from a Cargo 1 Site.

What happens to Files I’ve uploaded to my Cargo 1 site?
When you copy over content from Cargo 1 to Cargo 2, any Files you’ve uploaded (PDFs, MP3, Webfonts, etc.) are copied over as well. On Cargo 2 you can access these by opening the Images submenu when editing any page, and clicking on the Files icon: ︎
