Web Host Transfer
Changing web hosts can become a tedious task and many web site owners are left feeling unable to move. There are many reasons why business owners chose to move hosting these may include service difficulties, lack of service, pricing and slow server speeds.
Web Host Migration Made Easy
Changing your hosting location is like moving houses. Traffic within the area may become congested and slow, belongings may become lost during the move and mail are lost within the old address. Rubix Studios’ services aim to reduce these complications.
When migrating web hosts, we recommend contacting our team to discuss your options, this may include evaluating your current host to available providers as well as current access levels to the current website determining its ability to be moved.
In order to move your website, we’ll continuously create backups of relevant files, databases and emails to ensure no information is lost during the process. The files are then loaded to the new web hosts where testing and reconfiguration begins whilst the old website remaining operational.
Once the website scripts and database changes have been made as well as email accounts set up. We’ll then reconnect your web domain to your new hosting provider, during the propagation period of 24-48 hours, the website may load through both your old hosting as well as your new host and emails become disorientated between both hosting.
Following the domain propagation settlement, we’ll move any missing emails which may have been caught within the old hosting to the new ensuring that no important information is lost.
Our hosting migration is made for website running concrete5, Drupal, Joomla, Magento, MediaWiki, Moodle, OpenCart, osCommerce, phpBB, PrestaShop, TYPO3, WordPress, or Zen Cart. For website outside these platform, ensure that you’ve contacted us prior to making this purchase.
What We Require From You
In most cases in order for a migration to be completed, we require access to your hosting control panel generally referred to as cPanel or Plesk. In some cases, we’re able to obtain all databases through the available platform, this generally occurs in cases where the original developer has restricted access to their servers which in these cases are servers shared with his clients.
Please contact us to see available options where backend server access is not available.
