If you are selling your holiday rental property and the new owner is planning to continue letting the property, you will need to transfer ownership of the website as part of the sales process.
There are several steps to consider:
Transfer Ownership of Domain
This is generally free if the new owner sets up an account with the same domain name provider that you are currently with. You will then be able to login to the domain name provider account and transfer ownership of the domain name to the new owner's account.
Transfer ownership of the PromoteMyPlace account.
To do this, you will need to login to your PromoteMyPlace account and change the email address and password on the account to the new owner's email address and a temporary password, which they can change once logged in.
NOTE: Changing the email address on the account does not automatically change the email address where enquiries are delivered. So it is recommended that you also do this before changing the account email address by going to Edit Website Details > Enquiries and updating the enquiries email address.
Transfer ownership of any email accounts specific to the property
If there are any email addresses associated with the property with Gmail e.g. <name of holiday rental>@gmail.com, or any other free email services, you will need to transfer ownership of these to the new owner. You can simply change the password on the account to a temporary password and share it with the new owner. Make sure you also change the recovery email/telephone number on the account (if there is one), so that the new owner can gain access if there is a problem.
Transfer Ownership of any social media pages associated with the property
If the property has a page on Facebook, Twitter or any other social media platforms these will need to be transferred to the new owner too.
To transfer a Facebook page, the new owner must first have a Facebook profile and have 'liked' the Facebook page. You can then add the new owner as an administrator ("Edit Page" > Admin Roles, start typing new owners name so that it appears and click on the profile to place it in the box, and then click "Save Changes").
To transfer a Twitter account you just need to change the password on the account to a temporary password and share it with the new owner. If the email address on the account is a personal one rather than one associated with the property (which you are handing over) you will need to change that too.
Transfer Google Analytics and Search Console data
This is not essential, but having previous data from Google Analytics and Google Search Console will allow the new owner to assess the website's performance up until now. To transfer this data the new owner will need to have a Google account and you will need to make the new owner an administrator on these accounts. Once the new owner has become an administrator they can stop sharing the data with you.
