Assisted Website Migration
What does the assisted website migration option contain? How can you benefit from it?
If you wish to switch hosting providers and you do not have loads of experience or time, you might find it challenging to transfer your content. Relocating an HTML Internet site involves uploading little files to the new server, so it can be easier, but relocating a script-driven website, especially a custom-built one, and linking it to the database on the new web hosting platform or relocating databases and emails could be very irritating tasks for some people. Therefore, many users are stuck with a provider that offers a bad web hosting service just because they don't know how they can transfer their content to another company safely and securely while keeping the looks and performance of their Internet sites undamaged. In this light, our web hosting plans include a website migration service, that is completely free of charge, and that shall save you a lot of time and efforts as you'll not have to do anything on your end.
Assisted Website Migration in Shared Hosting
After you purchase your new shared hosting
account, you'll be able to get in touch with our tech support team and organize the migration of your Internet sites, which in most cases does not take more than 2 days. The amount of sites which we're able to migrate for you varies according to the plan which you select upon signup, but there is no plan in which this service isn't available, so we could help you even if you have only 1 small Internet site and you prefer that our professional staff executes the migration. The only two prerequisites are the current web server to be running on Linux and the platform which you have used to create the Internet site on the first place not to be a closed-source one like Jimdo or Wix as they don't grant access to the files. We shall relocate any kind of website no matter the hosting Control Panel which you currently use and our offer is valid for both custom-made sites and ones produced with famous script-driven applications including Joomla or WordPress. When our tech support team relocates everything, they will test out the sites in order to make certain that they're operating properly and shall then notify you that you may change the name servers of your domain names
and point them to our cloud platform.
Assisted Website Migration in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated hosting
account through us, we will be able to relocate your content free of charge even if you have a variety of sites under different domain names. As our top-notch cloud hosting platform uses Linux, your current host needs to use this OS as well and you mustn't be using a closed-source online site design service such as Weebly, Mr. Site or Jimdo since they don't allow the website files to be accessed, as a result we cannot transfer this type of an Internet site. It normally does not take more than 2 days from the minute you arrange the migration with our tech support team to the moment everything is moved and set up, so you can start using our services instantly. You will be able to take advantage for any custom-made site or for one which you've developed with a script-driven app including Joomla, PrestaShop, Moodle or WordPress. When everything is prepared, we will inform you and you can change the name servers of your domain names to point them to your new account. Since the content shall be the same on both servers, your visitors won't see any downtime during the DNS update propagation.
Assisted Website Migration in Dedicated Hosting
If you wish to use one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
, we can migrate any kind of site, regardless if it's a forum, a WordPress blog, an e-commerce portal or any other custom site. We can't move just websites created with site builders like Wix, Yola or Jimdo due to the fact that they don't provide access to the site files, consequently we are unable to get the content in any way. Any other website that can function on a Linux hosting server can be transferred within 2 days to your new dedicated server and not just will our tech support team set everything up, but they'll also test out your Internet site to make sure its proper operation on our end. Because our web servers are extremely powerful and can support lots of script apps working all at once, there won't be any difficulty to migrate even numerous websites and you will not have to pay anything on top of the dedicated server monthly charge. The moment our technical support is done with the migration, they'll let you know and you can update the name servers of all domain names that you want to host on the server. During the propagation time, the Internet sites will load either from your new account on our end or from the hosting servers of the old hosting provider, but since the content will be precisely the same, the site visitors won't detect any downtime.
