managed website migration

What is a managed

Website Migration Service?

Our website migration service is a free service where we seamlessly migrate your site(s) from your current provider to our very own premium systems. We understand that it can be a hassle to move your sites over to us so we want to make it as easy as possible.

Website migrations are handled by our experienced standalone team, who dedicate 100% of their time to delivering a smooth website migration. We are experienced in moving all types of sites, from small WordPress websites to complicated IaaS (multiple dedicated server) setups.

All we need is the login details (control panel link, username and password) to your old host, and the domain name(s) you’d like to migrate. We will do the rest. If we have any questions we will correspond with you.

how long does it take?

We can't give an exact migration time as it depends on the complexity of your website and also our current workload. However, we aim to migrate most websites within 2 working days, but it's usually much quicker. For simple sites, we can usually complete the move within one day.

development websites

& holding pages

We can set up development websites so there is no need to undertake major work on a live website. We will then seamlessly migrate your test site to the live site for you too.

And if you're wanting to take you website offline for a short time, whether the reason be company re-branding, website updates or a completely new website, we can set up a holding page for you too.

Is there any downtime?

Our team of migration specialists are able to handle your migration with no downtime. During the migration process your content is present on both the old and new servers, meaning you completely avoid any disruption. Firstly we copy your site onto our systems, then present you with a preview URL and once you have checked the site we then go on to instruct you how to switch to us.

In some cases (for example where you have an e-commerce website) we understand data integrity is vital. We will discuss various options with you here – such as putting the website into maintenance mode, or remotely connecting to the database.
