Frequently asked questions
Will there be any downtime?
No. Your website will be transferred to the new host whilst your domain still points to the old host. Only when the full transfer has been completed will DNS records be updated, this means your domain will still serve content from the existing host until DNS has updated and propagated.
Does this work for WooCommerce stores?
Yes, the migration service involves copying your entire database which will include WooCommerce or any other WordPress plugins you have installed.
How long does it take?
The service is usually completed within 48 hours.
Do you take care of any DNS updates?
If required DNS records can be updated for you, you will need to provide access to your domain/DNS provider in order to do so and also provide the DNS records of your new host.
Can you transfer my site to a new domain name?
Yes, this is possible but is an additional add-on. If you require this service please select the add-on on checkout.
New Domain Name
The standard service includes transfer of your website from one host to another assuming the domain name will remain the same. With this add-on your database will be configured to work on any new domain name.
