When you transfer your site to AVATAVA we'll do all the work for free. Just ask us and we will move your website files, databases, settings, email accounts and such to AVATAVA web hosting servers. You will need to supply us with your login info for your present web host and permission to access your account on your behalf. We'll need to have the username, password, and login location to access your old provider's hosting account.
Move your hosting account in three easy steps:
- Order a new hosting account from AVATAVA. Important: Don't cancel your old account or tell your present host you are leaving until the process is completed.
- Provide AVATAVA with information to access your previous hosting account and we'll move you in for free. We will move over your files, set up and migrate any databases, and recreate email accounts on our servers to match what you have on your old host. We'll also provide a temporary URL for testing the new site before finalizing the move.
- Once the site is tested using the temporary URL in step 2, all that remains is to change your DNS servers to AVATAVA. You'll get the DNS change information in your setup emails when you sign up for an account with us-- but remember, this is the last step to do when migrating a site. If you're not sure how or where to change DNS at your registrar, we can also do this on your behalf.
Once Step 3 is completed and DNS is updated, for a period of time some emails and visitors may go to the old web host site and some will see the site on the AVATAVA server. After 48 hours has passed no visitors or email should reach your old web host anymore and all new email and visitors will reach AVATAVA servers moving forward. This could take up to 48 hours but in practice the change usually happens much quicker. It should now be safe to cancel your old hosting account or let it expire.
