Assisted Website Migration
Find out about what assisted website migration is and exactly how you can make the most of it.
If you'd like to switch Internet hosting providers and you don't have a lot of experience or time, you might find it challenging to migrate your content. Relocating an HTML Internet site involves uploading little files to the new web server, so it may be easier, but relocating a script-driven Internet site, especially a custom-built one, and linking it to the database on the new hosting platform or migrating databases and e mails can be quite irritating tasks for some people. Therefore, many users are stuck with a hosting provider that offers a bad web hosting service simply because they have no idea how they can move their content to an alternative provider securely while keeping the design and performance of their sites unchanged. In this light, our hosting packages include a website migration service, that's 100 % free of charge, and which will save you a lot of time and efforts since you will not have to do anything on your end.
Assisted Website Migration in Cloud Website Hosting
You can take advantage of the migration service with any one of our cloud website hosting plans
and dependant upon the particular plan that you've chosen, we can transfer a different number of Internet sites. When your account is working and you receive the login info for it, you can contact us using a ticket and our expert tech support team shall move your sites so long as they are currently hosted on a Linux machine. They'll also extensively test the sites to make certain that they're working properly before they inform you that you can change the name servers of your domain names
to point them to our cloud platform. The whole process usually doesn't take more than 24 to 48 hours based on the number of websites and their size. The service is available irrespective of the control panel you currently use unless you have built your site via a closed site builder platform including Wix, Jimdo or Weebly. We can also move any type of site even if it's a custom-made one and not developed with a popular platform such as Joomla or WordPress.
Assisted Website Migration in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, we shall be able to relocate your content totally free even in case you have a variety of websites under different domain addresses. Since our top-notch cloud hosting platform uses Linux, your current host should use this OS as well and you mustn't be using a closed-source online web design service including Weebly, Mr. Site or Jimdo since they don't allow the site files to be accessed, therefore we can't transfer this kind of a website. It typically does not take more than two days from the moment you arrange the migration with our tech support team to the point in time everything is relocated and set up, so you can start employing our services right away. You can take advantage for any custom website or for one which you've created with a script-driven application including Joomla, PrestaShop, Moodle or WordPress. As soon as everything is set, we shall inform you and you can change the name servers of your domain names to point them to your new account. Since the content will be identical on both servers, your visitors will not detect any downtime during the DNS update propagation.
Assisted Website Migration in VPS Servers
The website migration service is available with all VPS servers
solutions that we offer regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you currently use or the one that you pick for your new account. The only 2 requirements are to use an Internet hosting company which doesn't employ a closed-source platform (Wix, Weebly, Jimdo, etc.) and to have a site which can function on a Linux hosting server considering that this is the OS which is included with our web hosting servers. It rarely requires more than 2 days for our capable tech support team to transfer 1 or multiple websites from the moment you contact them with this kind of a request, so you can switch providers really quickly and without any work on your end. The type of sites we can transfer for you does not matter, therefore we can aid you with well known applications like Joomla or WordPress and also with custom-made scripts. When the content on your VPS is identical to the one on the servers of your current service provider, you'll be able to change the name servers of your domain names to point them to our system, avoiding any downtime of your websites.
Assisted Website Migration in Dedicated Servers
If you want to use one of our dedicated web hosting plans
, we can move any sort of website, regardless if it is a forum, a WordPress blog, an e-commerce portal or any other custom site. We are unable to transfer only Internet sites created with site builders like Wix, Yola or Jimdo as they don't grant access to the website files, hence we cannot obtain the content in any way. Any other website that can run on a Linux server can be transferred within 48 hrs to your new dedicated server and not only will our technical support set everything up, but they will also examine your Internet site to make sure its proper functioning on our end. Since our web servers are really efficient and can support lots of script applications working at the same time, there shall not be any problem to relocate even a number of Internet sites and you shall not have to pay anything on top of the dedicated server monthly charge. Once 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 would like to host on the server. During the propagation time, the Internet websites shall load either from your new account on our end or from the servers of the old hosting company, but because the content will be exactly the same, the site visitors will not detect any downtime.
