Frequently Asked Questions

What is the website migration service?

Website migration is a free service offered with each of our hosting plans – we seamlessly move your website(s) from your current hosting provider to our platform.

All website migrations are handled with the highest care by our migration specialists. The team are experienced moving all types of different sites, from small WordPress blogs to more complicated IaaS (multiple dedicated server) setups.

How long will it take to move my website to your platform?

We aim to migrate most websites within 2 working days – if not much sooner. The complexity of a website plays the biggest role in how long it takes us to complete a migration. If you have a simple website, we can complete your migration within 1 day.

Do you offer a free website migrations with all hosting plans?

Yes, every hosting plan comes with our free website migration service. It’s completely stress free – we take care of the entire move from start to finish. And your website stays online throughout. Our experienced team of migration specialists keep you informed during every step and ensure your website works exactly as it should.

What information do you need to complete my migration?

We don’t require much information – just the login details (control panel link, username and password) to your old host, and the domain name(s) for the website you’d like us to migrate. If we need any more information to complete your migration, we’ll get in touch.

Can you move my website from any hosting provider?

Yes. No matter who you are currently hosting with, we’re able to move your website over to our hosting platform. The only limitation lies with closed source platforms, such as website builders, that don’t allow content to be exported and imported. These platforms include Wix, Mr Site, BaseKit and Jimdo.

Will my site be offline during the migration?

No. During the migration process your content will be present on both the old and new servers, so it stays online throughout. We’ll give you a preview URL to check your site is up and running exactly as it should, before we make the full switch to our platform.

In some cases – for example, migrating an eCommerce website – we understand data integrity is vital. So we’ll discuss various options with you, including putting your website into maintenance mode, or remotely connecting to the database.
