Assisted Website Migration
Assisted Website Migration - what does it mean, what it includes and how to use it to tranfer your web sites between various hosts?
If you'd like to switch web hosting firms and you don't have much experience or time, you may find it difficult to move your content. Relocating an HTML site involves uploading compact files to the new hosting server, so it may be easier, but relocating a script-driven website, especially a custom-built one, and linking it to the database on the new web hosting platform or moving databases and e-mails can be pretty aggravating tasks for some people. Consequently, lots of users are tied to a provider that offers a bad Internet hosting service simply because they have no idea how they can migrate their content to an alternative provider safely while keeping the looks and functionality of their Internet sites intact. In this light, our hosting plans include a site migration service, that's totally free of charge, and that will save you a lot of time and efforts since you will not have to do anything on your end.
