Migration from vBulletin and change of domain name

    My forum stands on the verge of huge changes this year. There is a need to transfer the whole forum to another domain name, and also migrate everything over to XenForo.

    Can this be done in one process, or should I focus on the domain change first before the software migration?

    It's not too big a forum, a little over 110,000 posts with about 4,100 members.

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    It's entirely up to you.
    You can do it in one go or in stages.

    Personally I would do it in stages by installing XenForo on the new domain and setting it all up; design, etc.
    Then after making a few test imports, import your old forum directly into XenForo on the new domain.

    Ahh, yeah I suppose that would be the best way. Thanks for the input Brogan.
