Assisted Website Migration
What does the assisted website migration option feature? How could you benefit from it?
If you wish to switch hosting companies and you do not have much experience or time, you may find it tough to move your content. Moving an HTML website involves uploading smaller files to the new server, so it could be easier, but migrating a script-driven site, especially a custom-built one, and linking it to the database on the new Internet hosting platform or relocating databases and emails may be very aggravating tasks for some people. Consequently, many users are tied to a provider that offers a bad hosting service just because they have no idea how they can migrate their content to a different company safely while keeping the looks and functionality of their Internet sites intact. In this light, our web hosting solutions offer an Internet site migration service, that's absolutely free of charge, and which will save you a lot of time and efforts because you will not have to do anything on your end.
Assisted Website Migration in Website Hosting
After you order your new website hosting account, you'll be able to contact our tech support team and organize the migration of your Internet sites, which typically doesn't take more than two days. The amount of Internet sites which we are able to move for you is determined by the plan which you choose upon signup, but there's no plan where this service is not available, so we will be able to help you even if you have only one small Internet site and you prefer that our experienced staff carries out the migration. The only two demands are the current web server to be running on Linux and the platform you have employed to develop the Internet site on the first place not to be a closed-source one for instance Jimdo or Wix since they do not give access to the files. We will relocate any type of site whatever the hosting Control Panel you currently employ and our offer is valid for both custom-made websites and ones produced with widely used script-driven applications like Joomla or WordPress. When our technical support team transfers everything, they will check out the websites in order to make certain that they're working adequately and will then inform 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 HostingIf you acquire a semi-dedicated hosting account through our company, we shall be able to move your content free of charge even in case you have numerous Internet sites under different domain addresses. As our top-notch cloud hosting platform employs Linux, your current host should use this OS too and you mustn't be using a closed-source online website design service including Weebly, Mr. Site or Jimdo as they don't allow the website files to be accessed, as a result we can't migrate this kind of a site. It normally doesn't take more than 48 hours from the second you arrange the migration with our support team to the moment everything is transferred and prepared, so you can begin using our services without delay. You could take advantage for any custom Internet site or for one which you have created with a script-driven application such as Joomla, PrestaShop, Moodle or WordPress. When everything is all 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 the same on both hosting servers, your visitors won't notice any downtime during the DNS update propagation.
- Assisted Website Migration in VPS Web HostingThe website migration service is available with all virtual private servers solutions we offer regardless of the hosting Control Panel you currently employ or the one that you select for your new account. The only two requirements are to use a hosting service provider which doesn't employ a closed-source platform (Wix, Weebly, Jimdo, and so forth.) and to have an Internet site that can operate on a Linux web server considering that this is the OS that comes with our hosting servers. It rarely takes over 48 hrs for our professional tech support team to migrate one or a number of sites from the moment you contact them with this sort of a request, so you can switch providers very quickly and with no efforts on your end. The type of sites we can move for you doesn't matter, so we can help you with popular applications such as Joomla or WordPress as well as with custom-made scripts. When the content on your VPS is the same as the one on the hosting servers of your current service provider, you could change the name servers of your domain names to point them to our system, avoiding any downtime of your sites.
- Assisted Website Migration in Dedicated Servers HostingIf you have decided to change service providers because you require a more effective web hosting solution and you sign up for a dedicated server from our company, we can relocate a number of websites at no additional cost and in only two days as we have a team of very knowledgeable administrators. Not only will they relocate the information for you, but they shall furthermore adjust all the necessary settings in the configuration files of your Internet sites and will test if everything is operating nicely before they notify you that the migration process has been carried out. This service is available regardless of the hosting CP which you employ with the current host and the one that you order on our end. It also does not matter if you are using a custom website or a script like WordPress or Joomla as our admins are able to relocate any type of site that can run using Linux environment. The only websites they cannot transfer are ones built on platforms like Wix, Jimdo or Weebly as they use closed-source website builders and do not offer access to the actual files. When everything is all set, you can change the name servers of the domain names that you wish to be hosted inside the dedicated server and because the content shall be identical with the one you have on the servers of the current host company, you will not observe any disruptions.
