Free Web Site Transfer

Let us make the transition as easy as possible

Perhaps your business or personal web site is growing faster than your old web hosting company can keep up with or maybe your chosen web host just isn't up to par with your sites' needs.

In any case, the best solution to this is to switch to Vision This Hosting. We offer free web site transfer from your old host to our secure servers by our professional transfer team.

Of course there are a few steps you should take to ensure the transition from your old web host to VisionThisHosting.com is seamless and worry-free one.

Steps to take

Better to be safe then sorry!

1.) Backup all your files, images and folder(s) currently hosted with your old web host provider. Be sure to double check and make sure you have saved all your files and anything else you want saved.

2.) Backup up all MySQL databases if you have any. Be sure to check the file to ensure it's not corrupted or damaged as this file is the lifeline of your website or blog.

3.) Make a note of any email address you may have created with your old web host as you will want to recreate them as they are used with your website for either billing, sales or support related.

4.) Can't stress this enough - make backups of backups. Its always good advice to make more then one backup of your entire sites content. If you have a CD-RW or DVD-RW burner, burn it to disk for safe keeping and this way you're secure and sure you have all your files in case something doesn't successfully transfer over.

Help us make this a a speedy process

1.) FTP information, Username and Passwords for backups

2.) CPanel Username and Passwords of old web host - so that our web host technicians can make backups of your MySQL databases and recreate them on VisionThisHosting.com
