Data Migration Service

We do offer a Free Best Effort Migration service for clients wishing to bring their hosting over to our servers.

Cpanel to Cpanel Transfers
We will facilitate transfers from other Cpanel based servers onto our servers free of charge.  In the vast majority of occasions we are able to get your website transferred and working without issue.  As with all migration services we simply offer best effort and we cannot absolutely guarantee your website will work on our servers.  If we run into issues we will inform you and then you can handle the transfer yourself. Clients should not arrange a shut down of their old service until they confirm all is working on our server and until they have a backup on their local machine (backups can be taken easily in Cpanel).

Please remember we offer a full 28 day money back promise so if for any reason we are unable to facilitate a working transfer you are free to cancel with no risk.


Non Cpanel Transfers
These transfers are usually a totally manual process requiring us to download your data from your old server, upload it to a remote server, export your database and import it and then work to get the website working.  Depending on the complexity of your website this service may not be offered free of charge and if we feel there needs to be a charge we will let you know.  Management will make a decision on free and charged transfers but as a general rule the length of time we can spend on such a transfer will depend upon the hosting plan you have with us.

Due to the nature of such manual transfers there is no guarantee we will get everything working on our systems although we will promise a best effort at all times.  If it becomes apparent we are unable to perform a successful migration we will of course let you know as soon as possible.  There are many reasons why a transfer may fail. Clients should not arrange a shut down of their old service until they confirm all is working on our server and until they have a backup on their local machine (backups can be taken easily in Cpanel).

Please remember we offer a full 28 day money back promise so if for any reason we are unable to facilitate a working transfer you are free to cancel with no risk.



Internal BWF Migrations
Perhaps you have outgrown a reseller plan and are moving to a Dedicated or VPS server.  In all instances we will provide a free migration service internally within BWF.
