Transferring data and switching providers can be a real pain. Some migrations involve days of downtime for your business, taking away from your profits. Luckily, HostDime has you covered.
HostDime’s talented support team has handled thousands of migrations both externally between hosts and internally between servers; rest easy knowing you’re trusting your migration to one of the most experienced teams in the industry.
Here’s All You Have To Do
For a smooth transfer, you need:
- A valid cPanel license on source server.
- A valid username and password to all accounts being migrated and/or root access to source server.
- The free space needed for the backup creation, which may require 2 to 3 times the total disk space size your accounts are currently using.
Once you have an active package on HostDime’s infrastructure, open a transfer request. Follow this easy step-by-step guide, and then you will be contacted by a transfer team member to create your customized plan to begin your migration with as little delay as possible.
To ensure the smoothest transition, we’ll inform you every step of the way, from start to completion, as well as a follow-up to confirm a successful transfer. If you have root access to your previous account (VPS or Dedicated Server), we can forward the DNS to minimize DNS propagation time once you update your nameservers.
For every migration, there is a corresponding ticket. You can either reply to the ticket with questions or contact us via phone or live chat and reference the Ticket ID to get a real-time update regarding your migration.
So the Transfer is Completely Free?
Yes! HostDime provides FREE cPanel migration for all new accounts less than 30 days from sign-up date. Transfer requests submitted after this 30-day period are subject to the following transfer fees based on source account size:
