Moving your web hosting to KDAWS
People often think that migrating websites from one host to another is a painful and laborious task but here at KDAWS we’ve been taking the worry and stress out of migrations for over 20 years. We’ll handle the entire process from start to finish, meaning you don’t have to worry.
Thinking it can’t be that simple? Think again.
I moved my portfolio of client sites to KDAWS a few months ago and it was one the best decisions I’ve made in a long time, they migrated everything extremely quickly and without a single thing going awry!
What we do…
We’ll take a detailed look at your current hosting and see how exactly what you’ve got, where it is and how it is setup. From this we’ll produce a detailed plan of your current infrastructure, including looking for redundant domains, sites and apps that may no longer needed so they can be backed up and removed before any migrations take place.
Plan, review & test
Whether it is 1 or 100 sites, every site is given its own migration plan to makes sure nothing is overlooked and we’ll update you with every step of the way so you know exactly what is happening.
Our plans will make recommendations on what you may want to do before the migration takes place to make sure everything runs smoothly.
For anything out of the ordinary we’ll carry out test migrations first, to make sure everything works as expected.
We don’t just migrate files and databases either, we make sure every aspect of your hosting is copied across such as mailboxes, DNS records and even cron jobs.
Migrate & secure
We will migrate your sites one by one, at a time that suits you and your customers. Usually this can be done with minimal or no downtime as we can divert traffic from the old server to the new until DNS changes take effect, we even re-sync mailboxes to make sure all your e-mails are copied across and up to date.
When your sites are copied across your customers will immediately benefit from our secure hosting and also the additional security hardening of WordPress we carry out for total piece of mind.
As part of a migration we can also help you update WordPress and any associated plugins using our AI based smart update tools, just ask for a demonstration and we’ll would be happy to show you.
Once a has been completed we take a full backup of your old hosting for safe keeping.
Each and every website is tested to make sure it is working as expected, in the rare situation any faults are found they will be fixed straight away by us.
We are always on hand to help with every aspect of our services, whether it be setting up an email address or speeding up a WordPress site, we are part of your team now, and we’re here to help.
How we work
Are we a good fit for your business? Are you a good fit for ours? That’s what we’ll find out, and if we aren’t a good fit then we’ll recommend someone else who might be, because your business needs a partner, not a provider.
If we are a good fit, we’ll get to the bottom of what you and your customers really need from us, and what we can do to help your business move forward.
We’ll audit what you services and infrastructure you currently have. Where are your domains? What hosting have you got? What is currently causing problems? What’s already done well? What can be done better? We dig deep so we can get the best plan in place…
Can we do what you need? Do we need to bring in external resources? What do you need? What will it cost? How can it grow with your business? These are all questions we’ll answer in our plan.
We Review Together
We’ll review your plan together, making sure we’ve got the needs of your business covered now, and in to the future. If we need to make changes, we’ll make them, and if you’re happy then we’ll move on to step 5…
We’ll implement our plan, building your new infrastructure and securely, safely migrating your data and customers over to your new services with minimal downtime, hassle and involvement on your part – we’re here to give you more time, not take it away.
Sit back, relax and enjoy knowing we’re part of your team and we’re here to help you concentrate on growing your business rather than managing servers.
