Assisted Website Migration
What does the assisted website migration option feature? How do you take advantage of it?
When you're looking for a better Internet hosting service and want to change your hosting provider, you will have to migrate the website content to the web hosting servers of the new firm. While this may be done very easily for a little HTML Internet site, it could be more complicated to move a script-driven site, which uses a database, not to mention when you have numerous sites. You will have to move a large amount of files, databases and emails, not mentioning that you shall have to import everything on the new web server and adjust numerous system settings so that you can get the websites online on the new hosting platform. To save you the time and the hassle to transfer your content, we offer a free site migration service, so depending on the kind of web hosting and the particular plan which you opt for, our tech support team can relocate even a number of websites for you, making sure that the way they look and function will be indistinguishable.
Assisted Website Migration in Cloud Website Hosting
After you get your new cloud website hosting
account, you could contact our tech support crew and set up the migration of your sites, which typically doesn't take longer than 48 hours. The number of sites which we're able to move for you varies according to the plan that you choose upon signup, but there is no package in which this service isn't available, so we'll be able to help you even if you have only 1 small website and you prefer that our expert staff carries out the migration. The only two requirements are the current web hosting server to be running on Linux and the platform you have used to set up the site in the first place not to be a closed-source one like Jimdo or Wix since they don't grant access to the files. We shall move any type of site irrespective of the hosting CP that you currently use and our offer is valid for both custom-made sites and ones produced with popular script-driven apps such as Joomla or WordPress. As soon as our tech support team moves everything, they shall check out the sites in order to make sure that they're operating properly and shall then let you know that you can change the name servers of your domain names
and point them to our cloud platform.
Assisted Website Migration in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you choose to host your Internet sites on a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, we are able to migrate a number of sites for you at no additional cost on top of the plan monthly fee provided that you currently use a Linux server and you have not developed the website by using a closed platform like Wix, Weebly or Mr. Site. You can make contact with our support team as soon as your new account is working and arrange the migration, which is usually done within no more than two days. Our service is available for all sorts of Internet sites no matter if they're custom-made or designed with well-known script apps including OpenCart, WordPress or Moodle and we'll test thoroughly the content that we have moved to our cloud hosting platform in order to make certain that once we inform you that we're done and you point your domain names to our hosting servers, your Internet sites will perform perfectly. You won't notice any downtime since during the DNS propagation the same content will open from both your old server and your brand-new account on our end.
Assisted Website Migration in VPS Servers
If you sign up for one of our Linux VPS servers
, we can transfer many Internet sites from your current web hosting company at no additional charge on top of the monthly Virtual Private Server cost. Due to the fact that our web hosting servers run using Linux, your sites should also be running on this type of a machine and they should not be developed via a closed online platform like Wix or Jimdo, but apart from that there are no restrictions as to what the websites have to be - WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or custom-built ones. Our knowledgeable technical support can start the migration as soon as your Virtual Private Server is ready and you get in touch with them. The timeframe for the migration depends upon the number of Internet sites and their size, but in most cases the entire process will not take more than 2 days and this time includes thorough testing to make sure that all Internet sites will work adequately on our end. You can change the name servers of the domain names which you want to host on the VPS as soon as we tell you that the info has been transferred and you will not notice any downtime as the exact same content will be available on both hosting servers.
Assisted Website Migration in Dedicated Servers
If you wish to use one of our Linux dedicated servers
, we can migrate any type of website, regardless if it is a forum, a WordPress blog, an e-commerce portal or any other custom Internet site. We can't move just websites designed with site builders like Wix, Yola or Jimdo as they don't give access to the site data, consequently we cannot obtain the content in any way. Any other site which can work on a Linux machine can be relocated within 48 hours to your new dedicated server and not only will our tech support team set everything up, but they shall also test out your Internet site to ensure its proper performance on our end. Due to the fact that our web servers are really powerful and can support lots of script apps working simultaneously, there won't be any problem to transfer even multiple websites and you won't need to pay anything on top of the dedicated server monthly fee. Once our technical support is done with the migration, they shall let you know and you can update the name servers of all domain names that you'd like to host on the server. During the propagation time, the websites will load either from your new account on our end or from the hosting servers of the old host, but since the content shall be identical, the Internet site visitors won't detect any downtime.
