To the uninitiated, Joomla website transfer can be a bit of a battleground! To transfer Joomla between hosts, a number of steps must be followed and can fail for a number of reasons, from server configuration problems to working out the absolute server path, not to mention installation of the accompanying database.
Joomla Server Migration With Minimum Downtime.
If you are transferring your Joomla website to a new host, of course the domain name must go with it. To transfer Joomla with minimum downtime, we work to set procedures which ensure that your website is already present and correct on the server BEFORE DNS setting on your domain name are changed to point at the new server. This ensures a nearly seamless continuation of services.
Mailboxes and Services
When transferring your domain to another host, it's important to realise that your mailboxes will not come with it! These need to be set up separately on the new server. We realise that your mail privacy is important to you, and will happily sign a non disclosure for all tasks we are employed for.
Getting your Joomla website ready for transfer can be a dangerous time for your data, therefore we take backups of everything as it stands, right from the start, including site files and database.
A Fully Functional Joomla Site
You will be left with a Joomla website transfer that is fully functional in every respect, and identical to the original host. If you'd like to learn more, please contact us for a Joomla transfer information request.
